Gluten-Free Chives — Menu Plan May 18

Posted by: | Comments (3)

HerbsChivesThis week, the theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Chives.

I think most people are familiar with Chives. If you aren’t, you’ll want to know that this herb is a member of the onion family, and has an aroma and flavor similar to onion. It is easy to grow, and it’s grass-like size and shape make it easy to chop up quickly to add to dishes.

We like to add chives to baked potatoes and other vegetable dishes. You’ll often find them in recipes for eggs and cheesy, creamy dips. I found some of those, as well as some other Gluten-Free Recipes with Chives:

Gluten-Free Dill — Menu Plan May 11

Posted by: | Comments (0)

HerbsDillThis week at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we’re exploring the use of fresh Dill in meals and recipes. Visit Angela’s Kitchen for the roundup of Gluten-Free Menus.

I love the flavor that dill adds to meals. I like to use dried dill weed in dressings, dips, and spreads throughout the year. But it’s so nice to add fresh dill to salmon, shrimp, and chicken dishes…not to mention potatoes and other vegetables.

Once again, I got online to search gluten-free websites for some new recipes. Success as usual! I found some yummy-looking recipes. I’m still amazed at all the wonderful and creative gluten-free recipes you can find online.

Gluten-Free Oregano — Menu Plan May 4

Posted by: | Comments (1)

HerbsOreganoThis month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we’re focusing on using fresh herbs. This week’s theme ingredient is Oregano.

It’s that time of year to get your gardens going. The herbs are plentiful at the garden centers and on sale, too. So, I picked up small pots of some favorite herbs to grow in the corner of my kitchen. They’ll sit between two big windows so they get lots of sunshine. With a little watering and some pruning, they’ll be fresh for eating for several weeks.

Oregano is in many Italian and Greek recipes. Just take a look at these Gluten-Free recipes I found:

If you don’t have fresh herbs on hand, but a pantry full of dry herbs instead, you may find this conversion chart helpful when preparing your meals.

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

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth says she uses dried oregano in lots of meals, especially her spaghetti sauce. In fact, she’s starting the week with spaghetti and meatballs. Dinners for the rest of her week include Crock Pot Southwestern Corn & Potato Chowder, Broccoli Quesadillas, Shrimp Scampi (with fresh parsley), Southwestern Veggie Wraps, and Pizza.

SpringRadishesThis week, the theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Radishes.

I don’t do much with radishes. Sometimes the ruby vegetable finds its way into our salads or maybe a raw relish tray, but that’s about it. Boring, right? Soooo… back to the website search engines again.

I was anxious to find some new ways (new to me, at least) to eat this sharp-flavored vegetable. And the food bloggers did not disappoint me. Check out these Amazing Gluten-Free Radish Recipes I found:

Mom’s Plans: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free
Melissa is hoping to fill up her freezer with meals this week. So, she’ll be making double and triple batches as she’s cooking their meals this week: Slow-Cooker Stuffed Peppers, Crockpot Hamburger Veggie Soup, Tuna Patties, Sloppy Joes, Hidden Liver Meatloaf, Chicken Apple Sausage Kale Soup, and Spaghetti. Check out the details and links at her full menu post.

Angela’s Kitchen: Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Menu
Angela says she always has a lot of radishes from her garden because they’re so easy to grow. But, because her daughter doesn’t care for them raw, they often cook them to give them a milder flavor. Her family enjoys Sautéed Radishes with Spinach (with a piece of bacon chopped and cooked before adding anything else to the pan) and Sautéed Radishes (using coconut oil instead of butter). For dinners this week, they will be eating Chicken Marsala, Apple Veggie Sausage Quiche, and Clean-out-the-Fridge Omelettes. Angela is heading to Chicago for the GFAFexpo this weekend, so look her up if you’re going, too!

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth is looking forward to trying this recipe she found for Radish & Cucumber Salad. For dinners this week, she’s making BBQ Pulled Pork, Waffles and bacon, 5 ingredient Honey Mustard Salmon, Veggie Soup, Pizza, and Chicken and Broccoli Casserole.

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 Radish in meals.

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:

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.
