The Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme this month is Spring Vegetables. 

The plan this month is: “Each week, I’m going to try a few recipes that feature spring-time vegetables. Then the following week, I’ll write a quick review on each of the recipes I tried.”

The plan worked better than the previous week. I was able to try four new recipes:

  • The Strawberry Arugula Salad with Sweet Cilantro Dressing was really good, but I changed up the dressing a bit. The garlic I had must have been really strong because I only used two cloves, and it was surprisingly strong on the garlic flavor. My husband LOVED it. I also added a little lime juice to the dressing, but only about 3/4 C oil. It makes a lot of dressing. I had plenty leftover for other meals. In fact, I liked the dressing on grilled chicken, too.
  • Turkey Taco Endive Boats was the favorite recipe of the week, although the endive was a little bitter for the kids. I loved the crunch of the endive. It makes a great alternative to tortillas or taco shells.
  • The Spring Detox Smoothie was interesting… kind of like drinking a salad. I guess I’m just so used to drinking fruit smoothies, that I wanted a little sweetness. So, I added a frozen banana and some strawberries. It was great, and I’m glad to know I got all the greens in my diet, too.
  • The Wilted Radicchio, Endive, and Asparagus Salad was very tasty. The balsamic and olive oil dressing was a really nice addition to the endive and radicchio. And the toasted pine nuts and asparagus were a wonderful combination of crunch and flavor. I had two large servings.

Here’s this week’s Gluten-Free Veggie Recipes I plan to try:

The Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme this month is Spring Vegetables. 

The plan is: “Each week this month, I’m going to try a few recipes that feature spring-time vegetables. Then the following week, I’ll write a quick review on each of the recipes I tried.”

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for me last week. I had trouble finding radicchio, but my biggest problem was that I was sick last week. My meals were mostly chicken bone broth, applesauce, bananas, and mint tea. So, now that I’m feeling better, let’s try this again. (And hope that my gut can handle it.)

Here’s this week’s Gluten-Free Veggie Recipes I plan to try:

 

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Greek Pasta Salad

Monday – Corned Beef, Wilted Radicchio, Endive, and Asparagus Salad

Wednesday – Crispy Baked Chicken Tenders, Strawberry Arugula Salad

Thursday – Grilled Pork Chops, Grilled Radicchio

Saturday – Cilantro Lime Shrimp over rice

Sunday – Greek Pasta Salad with Chicken

The Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme this month is Spring Vegetables. 

Each week this month, I’m going to try a few recipes that feature spring-time vegetables. Then the following week, I’ll write a quick review on each of the recipes I tried. Here’s what I’m trying this week:

Gluten-Free Spring Vegetable Recipes from Last Week:

Each recipe we tried last week were winners with the adults, but the kids were not as thrilled with them. The Easy Bacon Pea Salad was most liked by the kids, though they told me they would like it better with less onion and more bacon. I’d probably make it again with just one bag of frozen peas for the family, but the full recipe would be great to take to a potluck or family gathering.

My husband and I LOVED this Flank Steak, Arugula & Potato Salad. However, we didn’t make the recipe exactly as written. The grocery store was out of flank steak and arugula!! However, I did find a mixed bag of spinach and arugula, so I used that and grilled up some steaks. The salad turned out delicious with that dressing.

This Kale with Cranberries Salad was also delicious. What’s nice is how simple and easy it was to make. It’s great to eat with grilled pork chops or steak. My kids aren’t crazy about kale, so I won’t pretend they like the salad. But I really enjoyed it! The cranberries and pine nuts are nice additions.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
