I’ve chosen onions as the theme ingredient for the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week. Like garlic, I use onions in a lot of my recipes. I love the aroma of them cooking in the kitchen, and of course the taste of them in my recipes. This week, I’ll use onions in my tacos, roasted potatoes wedges, and my Chicken Enchilada Soup.
And more Celiac Family recipes with onions:
- Avocado Salsa
- Broccoli Mushroom Bake
- Cilantro Rice
- Egg and Hashbrown Casserole
- Red Beans and Rice
- Pulled Pork, slow-cooked
- Seven Layer Salad with Creamy Dill Dressing
- White Chicken Chili
- Wild Rice Salad with Parmesan Dressing
I am hosting the GF Menu Swap this week, so check back later for the roundup of more gluten-free menu plans. I’ll get menu links and onion ideas from other gluten free bloggers posted below as I get them.
As for my menu this week, I’m still trying to get holiday activities done (shopping, wrapping gifts, sending cards, etc.), so I’m trying to keep the meals quick and easy. I’ve even added a trip to Boston Market for a no-cook night. I think I’ll plan on using paper products, too, so even the clean up will be quick and easy.
Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
Monday – Cheeseburgers
Once again, my daughter is asking when we can have cheeseburgers again. So, here it is. I have no spare time for baking buns, so instead I’ll use the Kinnikinnick’s hamburger buns I have in the freezer.
Tuesday – Boston Market
Boston Market has some good gluten-free food options that we all like in my family. But, it isn’t all gluten-free, so if you give it a try be sure you check the allergen information on the menu so you know what items to avoid.
Wednesday – Chicken Tacos
I’ll use our favorite slow-cooked Mexican chicken for tacos in corn tortillas. We’ll add some refried beans, chopped lettuce, chopped green onions, shredded cheddar, sliced black olives, and chopped avocado.
Thursday – Fried Haddock
I’ll use a Louisiana Fish Fry mix to coat pieces of Haddock and fry until golden brown. I’ll serve it with green beans and onion-roasted potato wedges.
Friday – Chicken Enchilada Soup
I’ll use leftover chicken from Tuesday to make this yummy soup. I may make some quick, cheese quesadillas to serve with it.
Saturday – Leftover Buffet
Sunday – Spaghetti
Using a gluten-free pasta, I’ll make spaghetti with a traditional tomato sauce.
Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup
Like me, Wendy at Celiacs in the House seems to use onions in many dishes. Although, she does have to make some adjustments for her daughter who doesn’t tolerate them very well. This week, the Shepherd’s Pie on her menu got my attention. She also has Fish Cakes, Spicy Pumpkin Soup, and Butternut Squash Thai Curry Crepes on her menu.
This week, Angela of Angela’s Kitchen is sharing her ideas for growing your own green onions and celery on the window sill. For dinner this week, she’s making Taco Chili, Blender Corn Bread, and Turkey Wild Rice Soup that sounds great for this chilly weather. Sounds like she’s busy making cookies this week, too! Check it all out on her menu this week.
Michelle at Gluten-Free Smiles is another fan of onions, and says she adds them to most meals. Her menu this week includes Sushi, Chicken Soup, and Stir Fry. She’s also making Carol Fenster‘s recipe for Fish and Chips – another recipe I need to try.
At Beyond Rice and Tofu this week, Renee is preparing for the holiday festivities by using up and clearing out the leftovers and produce. Sounds like a good idea to me. She has Tofu Tikka Masala, Vegetable Soup, Taco Salad, and Spaghetti on the menu this week. Oh, and she bought a nice block of Brie for her leftover night. Now that’s some good leftovers.
Kristen at Adventures in Mommyhood says she isn’t a big fan of onions, but still uses them in smaller quantities in recipes. She has a wonderful menu this week including Chicken Tacos, Stephanie’s Chicken and Dumplings, Rachael Ray’s Sloppy Joes, and Kim’s Meatloaf Muffins.
I know everyone is busy with holiday activities this week. Thanks to all my gluten-free friends above for taking the time to share their gluten-free meal ideas with us.
