Lemon – Menu Plan Jan. 21
Posted By Heather On January 21, 2013 @ 12:34 am In Menu Plan | 8 Comments
Lemon is the theme for this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap.
We know that lemon can provide a nice punch of flavor to dishes. The zest and citric juice provide a tart but pleasing acid to your dressings, sauces, and baked goods. But lemons can also be a good immune-booster, which sounds good to me with all the flus and viruses going around right now. Lemons contain vitamin C, have anti-bacterial qualities, and help aid in digestion. So, I’m boosting my use of lemons this season.
This month I’ve been making lemon water with my Infusion Pitcher , to try to stay away from the sugary drinks. I like to use the lemon water to make iced tea, too. This week, I’ll be using fresh lemon juice and/or zest in Indian Chicken , Sautéed Spinach , Red Potato and Green Bean Salad , a Lemon Meringue Pie , Salmon with Lemon and Dill , and Roasted Asparagus with a Lemon Vinaigrette . In the past, I’ve also made Cilantro Lime Shrimp  using Basil and Lemon instead. It was delicious. I may need to try that with Cilantro Lime Rice , too.
Check out the Gluten-Free Menu Swap roundup below for more gluten-free menus, meals, recipe links, and ideas for adding lemon to your meals.
Tuesday — Hamburgers, Red Potato and Green Bean Salad 
Thursday — GFE’s Pork Tenderloin with a Maple Glaze , Roasted Potatoes, Spinach Salad
Saturday — Chicken Nuggets , Sweet Potato Fries, Steamed Broccoli
