More Gluten-Free Brassicas — Menu Plan June 19

By · Comments (1) · Print This Post Print This Post

The theme at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month is Brassica Vegetables. Brassicas, also known as cruciferous vegetables, have been labeled by many nutrition experts to be the healthiest group of vegetables. And unlike so many other vegetables, you can eat almost every part of the brassica vegetables from root to seeds.

This week, I’m eating a lot of leafy brassica varieties (kale and arugula), but for some variety I’ll also eat the flower (cauliflower) and buds (cabbage and Brussels sprouts). I may even add some radish slices (root) to my salads.

Gluten-Free Brassicas Recipes This Week:

 

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Balsamic Salmon

Greek Pasta Salad

Grilled Flank Steak

Monday – Hamburgers, Fries, Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Tuesday – Grilled Chicken, Garlic Turmeric Kale

Gluten-Free Brassicas — Menu Plan June 5

By · Comments (1) · Print This Post Print This Post

Hello June! This month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, the theme is Brassicas. Brassicas, sometimes called Cruciferous Vegetables, are often called superfoods or even the healthiest of all vegetables. They are known for their high quantities of vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting properties.

My family has come to really enjoy many of these vegetables, but I often prepare them very simply by roasting with a little oil and salt. I’ve been wanting to try some new varieties and new flavors. It’s going to be busy at our house this week, but I’m hoping I get a chance to try at least a couple new recipes this week.

Gluten-Free Brassicas Recipes:

 

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Indian Chicken

Beef & Veggie Kabobs

Easy Garlic Shrimp

Monday – Pork Tenderloin, Roasted Red Potatoes and Spicy Honey Mustard Brussels Sprouts

Tuesday – Shredded Chicken Taquitos, Lime Cilantro Rice, Guacamole

Wednesday – leftovers

Thursday – Indian Chicken, Cauliflower Rice

Friday – Baked Tilapia, Five-Spice Red Cabbage Salad

Saturday – Grilled Beef Kabobs, leftover salad

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Creamy Dill Salad Dressing Recipe — Menu Plan May 29

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

The Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme this month is Salad Dressings. So far this month, we’ve shared recipe links for Vinaigrettes, Non-Dairy Creamy Dressings, and Sweet and Sour Dressings.

But, as I was going through all the salad dressings on my recipe page, I noticed that my Creamy Dill Dressing Recipe is not dairy-free or sugar-free. So, I decided it was time for a recipe re-do. This is so quick and easy. I made it with ingredients I always have in the house. I usually keep a can of coconut milk in the refrigerator, so that’s what I used for this recipe. Everything else was in the pantry. Just dump ingredients in a blender and it’s done in just a few minutes.

Quick and Easy Non-Dairy Creamy Garlic Dill Dressing

Ingredients:

1 Can (13.66 oz) Coconut Milk (full-fat milk, refrigerated overnight)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder
1 TBSP dried dill weed
1-3 tsp cider vinegar (adjust for desired consistency)

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in an electric blender and blend well on high.
  2. Keep chilled.

Additional Notes:

  • This makes a great dip for raw veggies, crackers, chips, etc., but omit the vinegar completely for a thicker consistency.
  • I find that the blender helps get a smooth consistency to the coconut milk and dressing, but feel free to whisk it together in a bowl.
  • Makes about 2 Cups.

 

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Seven-Layer Salad

Shredded Chicken Tacos

Rainbow Veggie/Fruit Salad

Monday – Grilled Lamb, Cauliflower, Asparagus

Tuesday – Chicken Teriyaki, Rice, Roasted Broccoli

Wednesday – Pizza and Seven-Layer Salad

Thursday – Chicken Tacos, Refried Beans, Guacamole

Friday – leftovers

Saturday – Hamburgers, Rainbow Apple Salad

Sunday – Curry Chicken, Rice, Green Beans
