Cinnamon is the theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week. I love cinnamon and how it can liven up a recipe with just a teaspoon of it. I finally got my recipe for Cinnamon Rolls posted for you. And if you’re looking for another breakfast treat, I also have a recipe for Banana Coffee Cake.
For dinner this week, I’ll be making an Indian Chicken with Cinnamon, Ginger, and Mango Chutney. Check the roundup below for more gluten-free menus and recipes using Cinnamon.
Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
Monday - Indian Chicken served over rice
Tuesday – Teriyaki Chicken Tenders served with a Broccoli & Mushroom Quinoa
Wednesday – White Chicken Chili served with Monday’s leftover rice
Friday – Baked Salmon with a Balsamic Glaze served with Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Saturday - Burgers served with Baby Potatoes and Green Beans
Sunday – Leftovers
Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup
Wendy at Celiacs in the House is eating Quinoa with Cranberries, Coconut, and Almonds with a dash of cinnamon and maple syrup for breakfast. She’s also planning to make Kim’s Apple Streusel Squares with a Maple Cinnamon Glaze this week. Yum! Wendy’s meal plan this week – Chicken Stir Fry, Beef Stew, Salmon Cakes, Quiche, and Veggie Soup –sounds very warming on this cold frosty morning.
Paige at Not Missing a Thing! also has some “warm-you-up dinners” on her menu this week. Check out her plans for Creamy Chicken Pie, Stuffed Peppers, Taco Soup, and Tuna Casserole. She’s also working on an idea for Ranch Chicken with oven fries, which sounds good.
Samantha at So Simply Good says she uses cinnamon almost daily. For breakfast she’s eating Blueberries, Coconut Flakes, Roasted Pecans and a splash of Coconut Milk with Cinnamon. She also uses cinnamon in Mashed Butternut Squash and some Paleo Muffin Tops that I’m anxious to try this week. Samantha has lots of veggies planned for the week, along with Tri-tip Steak, Creamy Chicken and Tomato Soup, Red Curry Glazed Chicken Skewers, Smothered Pork Chops, and more!
Emily at Our Frugal Happy Life is joining us this week with a variety of links to gluten-free meals. She’ll be making Monterey Chicken, Pizza Sloppy Joes, Chicken Enchilada Dip, and Stuffed Pepper Casserole. Check it all out at her weekly meal plan.
Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is joining us this week, too. We’ve missed her menus, but she’s been busy with all sorts of great things, including preparing a series of webinars about gluten-free eating for Dietitian Central. Cheryl tells us that Cinnamon is high in antioxidants and helps stabilize blood sugar. On her menu this week is Beef Stew with root veggies, Simply Yum Quinoa, Chicken with roasted garlic, and Roasted Cauliflower.
Debbi Does Dinner Healthy & Low Calorie is back with a full menu of gluten-free meals. She has included recipe links for Thai Chicken Pizza, Lentil Baked Beans, Green Goddess Enchiladas, Smashed Pintos, Chicken Nuggets, and GF Peanut Butter Cookies. Go check out all her healthy GF meals.
