Gluten-Free Peas — Menu Plan April 20

Posted by: | Comments (7)

SpringPeasThis week, the theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Peas.

Thanks to how well these little veggies freeze, we’re able to eat them year round. But, if you’re lucky enough to get them freshly picked in the spring, they’re even better.

We like them in cold salads, steamed, and added to soups, pastas, and casseroles. Do you prefer to eat them cold or cooked?

Here are some yummy Gluten-Free recipes with Peas I found:

Cold or Raw:

Warm or Cooked:

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Angela’s Kitchen: Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Menu
Angela loves to grow sugar snap peas in her garden, and the family loves to eat them fresh. This week, she’s making Jules’ “Eat Your Veggies!” Bread (aka Pea-Powered Zucchini Bread) for breakfast. For dinners, she’s making Slow-Cooker Cassoulet, Gingered Beef and Broccoli Salad Bowls, Tuna Noodle & Vegetable Casserole (with peas), Steak and Potato Salad, and Curried Shrimp and Rice (with sugar snap peas).

Mom’s Plans: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free
Melissa’s family is eating peas this week in Tuna Noodle Casserole and Old Fashioned Vegetable Beef Soup. They’ll also be enjoying Grilled Chicken, Hamburgers, Sausage, and Tuna Patties. I’m a little jealous that she’s making Homemade Sushi with Smoked Salmon, Cucumber, and Avocado for a birthday celebration.

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth says she doesn’t often find fresh peas, and has to rely on frozen or canned peas for her recipes. This week, she’s eating peas in Fried Rice. For the rest of the week, she’s eating BBQ Chop Wraps, Strawberry Balsamic Salad Wrap with Cashew Cheese, Fast Slow-Cooker Pork Chops, 5-Ingredient Honey Mustard Salmon, Honey Basil Veggie Kabobs, and Pizza.

Come back later to check this week’s post and see who else may be sharing their gluten-free menus, recipe links, and ideas for including Peas in meals.

Kale has become such a popular vegetable! You’ll see it in so many recipes — everything from smoothies, salads, soups, and more! Are you tired of it, yet? Or are you still loving it?

My family doesn’t really like the kale chips, that so many people rave about. (Maybe we’ll try them again using the tips from Oh She Glows.) But we do really enjoy Stir-Fried Kale with Bacon.

Here are some more Gluten-Free Kale Recipes that look good enough to try, from A-Z:

SpringArugulaIt’s April! And, it’s officially Spring, so we’re going to explore Spring Vegetables this month. We’re starting the month with Arugula as the theme at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap.

FitDay says, “If you love to prepare salads, arugula is one of the most nutritious ingredients.”

Arugula is an excellent source of Vitamins A, C, and K. It also contains a good amount of folates, calcium, iron, magnesium, and manganese. It may help prevent diseases, fight cancers, and protect the skin from ultraviolet rays.

Arugula Gluten-Free Recipes. I mostly use arugula in tossed green salads. They are tasty, but after learning about all the health benefits, I wondered how else I could use it. I was amazed at the variety of recipes I found.

Don’t forget to check below our menu for more gluten-free menus, meals, and recipes with Arugula from our gluten-free blogging friends.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Mexican Chicken Pizza

Potato Salad

Marinated Flank Steak

Monday –  Mexican Chicken Pizza

Tuesday – Leftovers with Arugula Salad with Avocado, Beets, and Eggs

Wednesday –Hamburgers, Potato Salad, Peas

Thursday – Pork Tenderloin, Rice Pilaf, Roasted Broccoli

Friday – Fish Tacos, Pineapple Mango Salsa

Saturday – Marinated Flank Steak, Roasted Potatoes, Strawberry Arugula Salad

Sunday – Chicken Apple Sausage, Oven-Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Arugula and Lemon Juice

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth says she loves to add Arugula to salads. She also really enjoyed it in Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta Stir-Fry (Use gluten-free noodles!). This week for dinners, she’s eating Black Bean and Potato Nacho Plate, Dutch Baby Pancakes made gluten-free and dairy-free, Easy Crockpot Teriyaki Pork, Macaroni Salad, and Pizza.

RainbowCarrotsIt’s the final week of Eating a Rainbow of produce at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. So far, we’ve explored gluten-free ways of eating Eggplant, Blueberries, Cabbage, and Pineapple. This week’s theme is Carrots.

 

Carrots for Health. Remember the episode of Gilligan’s Island (Pass the Vegetables Please) when Mary Ann got super-human eyesight from eating carrots grown from seeds that washed up on shore? OK, maybe I’m dating myself by remembering the fun, silly show. But it’s true that carrots are good for your eyesight. That’s due to the high amount of Vitamin A and beta carotene in carrots. Carrots also contain Vitamins K, C, B, and E as well as potassium, manganese, and folate. The anti-oxidants in carrots may also help support good cardiovascular health, and help fight cancer.

Eating Carrots. We mostly eat carrots raw at my house. It goes into the kids’ lunches almost every day, and is frequently added to our salads and slaws. We love the sweet crunch for snacks on road trips, too. There are few ways I like to eat them cooked: stir-fried, candied, and in soups and stews. And, did I mention in baked goods? yum!

Try some of these Gluten-Free Carrot Recipes:

RainbowPineapplePineapple is up this week as our theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. Check out the other colors of the rainbow we’re eating this month: Eggplant, Blueberries, and Cabbage.

I love Pineapple. I like to eat it just freshly cut. But I also use it in smoothies, fruit salads, salsas, grilled, etc. If you are one who complains that the harsh acidic taste makes your mouth burn, you may want to try salting it first. It might sound strange, but it works well for some people. Sprinkle a little salt on it, and then rinse off the salt with water before you enjoy the sweet pineapple. You may find that it makes the pineapple taste even sweeter.

Here are a few CeliacFamily favorite Pineapple Recipes:

Tropical Fruit Salad

Angela at Angela’s Kitchen is hosting the Gluten-Free Roundup this week. There you’ll find more gluten-free menus, meals, and recipes with Pineapple.
