SummerVeggies1Summer Veggies are on our menus this month for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. This week, we’re featuring Gluten-free Sweet Bell Pepper Recipes.

Sweet Peppers add a nice fresh flavor to recipes, and a crisp juiciness to salads. I try not to eat too many sweet peppers. The green ones have always given me heartburn. Fortunately, the brighter colored peppers don’t seem to give me problems, so I do add red, orange, and yellow peppers to salads and salsas. I also like to sauté them with onions. My favorite way to eat peppers this summer is dicing them for a Pineapple Mango salsa with red onion, cilantro and a little lime juice to dress it. Sooooo good!

Here are some new Gluten-Free Recipes with Sweet Peppers I found to try:

GF = gluten-free; DF = dairy-free; P = paleo; V = vegan

SummerVeggies1Summer Veggies are on our menus this month for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. This week, we’re featuring Gluten-free Cucumber Recipes.

The one cucumber plant I have this year has only given us a couple cucumbers so far. But my neighbor and mother-in-law planted plenty of cucumber plants, and have generously shared some with us. I’ve been enjoying making cucumber salad with tomato, sweet pepper, onion, and avocado this month. Just a little lime juice and a handful of cilantro make it delicious. For lunch this week, instead of Cucumber Salad, I think I’ll make some yummy Cucumber Sandwiches with a Creamy Dill and Garlic Spread.

I’m also looking forward to trying some of these Gluten-Free Cucumber Recipes with our dinners:

SummerVeggies1At Celiac Family, we’re adding more Gluten-Free Summer Veggies to our Menu Plans this month.

The vegetables are really looking yummy right now. Whether from your garden, farmers’ market, or the grocery store, there’s plenty of perfectly ripe vegetables to add to your meals. That makes it a great time to increase the veggies (and all the nutrition and fiber that come with it) to your meals.

This week, we’re indulging in sweet corn. We like both the yellow and white corn at my house and we’ll prepare it in a variety of ways. Grilled, boiled, or steamed, I like them best cooked from fresh. So, I’m loading up this week and trying out some new recipes.

Gluten-Free Corn Recipe Links:

JulySummerCooking1

At the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month, we’re sharing ideas for gluten-free summer-time meals. The weather is really heating up this week, and I’m using our slow-cooker instead of the oven to help keep the heat in our kitchen to a minimum.

Not only will you find gluten-free slow-cooker meals on our menu this week: You’ll also find gluten-free frozen treats, gluten-free grilled meals, and gluten-free cool, raw salads. All chosen with hopes to keep the 100+º weather out of our house, so we can cool down in the evening. What are you eating to keep cool this week?

Here are some slow-cooker recipe links I found this week that look good to me!
