For this month’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap, I’m trying some new recipes from some great gluten-free friendly cookbooks.  

Last week, I didn’t shop very well for the recipes I tried. Even though I had to substitute ingredients for all three recipes, they still turned out very tasty.

I really liked the Rogan Josh with Sweet Potato Fries from Wel Fed Weeknights. Our grocery store was out of the ground lamb needed for the recipe, so I made the Rogan Josh with Beef Bites instead. I liked the flavor, and the beef was nice, but I’d like to try it again with lamb. The sweet potatoes were nice and tender, but I think I’d like them a little crispier, perhaps by roasting in the oven.

The Sticky Barbecue Wings from Gluten-Free Small Bites turned out really well. It’s hard for me to recommend the BBQ sauce recipe because, again, I had to substitute some ingredients. I’m not sure I got the taste intended, but the chicken wings cooked perfectly.

The Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins from The Wellness Mama Cookbook were also good. I was a little low on coconut flour, so I had to substitute a couple tablespoons of sorghum flour. That’s probably why I had to cook the muffins an extra 5 minutes to complete baking. The muffins had a nice soft texture and strong cinnamon flavor. I also added a couple tablespoons of agave syrup for a little sweetness, but I still felt like they needed a little more sweetness, so I drizzled some maple syrup on them before eating.

Gluten-Free Recipes from Gluten-Free Cookbooks. I’ve got three more recipes to try this week. I’ll have to check the recipe ingredients a little more closely before shopping this week. (Recipe links are on the recipe titles. Amazon links are in the cookbook title, in case you’re ready to buy or just want more details.)

For this month’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap, I’m trying some new recipes from some great gluten-free friendly cookbooks.  

Last week, I tried three new recipes and had good results with all of them. My favorite of the three was Smoky Candied Bacon Sweet Potatoes from Against All Grain Celebrations Cookbook. It had a lot of yummy flavors that worked great together.

The Spinach Artichoke Dip from Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking was also very good. It makes a great dip with corn chips, but I served it as a sauce on top of cooked chicken. It would also make a great casserole with cubed, cooked chicken mixed in.

The Taco Breakfast Bake from Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking was a tasty recipe, though my skillet was a little too big for the recipe, so it baked up a little shallow. This would be great for a brunch or potluck. I would double the recipe and bake in a 9×13 or equivalent baking dish. I might even add some green chiles or jalapeños to pump up the flavor a little.

This week, I’m trying three more recipes. Try them with me and let me know what you think.

Happy New Year! I am looking forward to a wonderful year of cleaner, healthier cooking for a healthier, happier family. For inspiration this month, I’m looking to new cookbooks. I’m going to try a few new recipes each week and then share our experience the following week.

Did you get any new gluten-free cookbooks for the holidays? Let us know what you’re making, or what you have plans to make this year. Or maybe you’d like to try one or all of these recipes with me and let me know what you think. ??

I’m keeping the list of recipes each week pretty small, so I’m actually able to get them made. (fingers crossed) Here are the cookbooks and recipes I found online that I’m hoping to try this week.
