AmericanCajunThis month, the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is exploring American foods from different parts of the country. This week, we start with Cajun foods from Louisiana.  

Cajun food is very flavorful and often spicy. You will find Cajun food in the southern parts of Louisiana, where it originated. It is common for Cajun meals to include seafood from the region (shrimp, crawfish, catfish), Spicy Sausage, Rice, local veggies (green pepper, onion, celery, okra, tomatoes), and Spice (cayenne, black pepper).

Check out these Gluten-Free Recipes with Cajun flavors and Louisiana tastes to try this week:

It often shows up on Pinterest pages for 4th of July celebrations. Here’s mine: Red, White, and Blue Pinterest Board for the Fourth of July

Gluten-Free Mango — June 22

Posted by: | Comments (6)

SummerMangoMango is the Summer Fruit of choice for this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap. 

Mangoes are so sweet and juicy, they are perfect for eating raw, adding sweetness to meals, and for yummy fresh desserts.

I don’t buy mangoes too often…maybe once a month. I never feel like I’ve mastered the chopping or slicing of them. I think that’s because it’s always a little messy, and I never feel like I get all the flesh off the pit. But after reviewing several tutorial videos, and even more web sites for directions for preparing a mango, it is clear that there is no one good way to do it. You just have to go for it.  And if you think there is flesh left on the pit, then it’s time to use your teeth and enjoy it or hand it to your kids to enjoy.

Gluten-Free Mango Recipes:

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

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week: Since we are traveling this week, our meals will mainly be eating out. So, I’ve pulled a menu plan from past summers to come up with this one.

Gluten-Free Figs — Menu Plan June 15

Posted by: | Comments (3)

SummerFigsFig is the chosen Summer Fruit at this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap. 

Although for me, the theme should probably be Easy instead of Figs. It’s time for us to move again, so I’m cleaning out the freezer and trying to use up what I can with limited cooking.

The only figs I might be eating this week would be fresh figs added to salads. But for future reference, I found some recipes to try next month, when we move into our new place.
