The Everyday KitchenFood advice for a busy life
If you're going gluten free it can be easy to focus on all the foods you can't eat. However, while it might feel like getting rid of gluten also means getting rid of loads of different foods, the vast majority of ingredients out there are naturally gluten free. Meat, chicken, vegetables, fruit, legumes, eggs, milk, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices . . . all of them in their basic, unprocessed form are gluten free.
Rather than focus on the foods you can't eat, try to think about and be excited by all the foods you can eat. The myriad of flavours which are still available to you, even though you're doing without gluten.
To help you along, here are three recipes which are naturally gluten free. Three recipes which are also delicious, filling, tasty, interesting. Beautiful meals which anyone would be happy to eat, gluten free or not.
1. Zucchini & Ricotta Pancakes
By using chickpea flour in her recipe, instead of the regular wheat flour, Scandi Foodie has created a gorgeous gluten free meal. I've made these pancakes and they are utterly delicious. Rather than serving them with jam for breakfast, I have them for dinner with a salad and some brown rice.
2. Easter Lamb
While it's billed as an Easter recipe, this roast lamb meal from Jamie Oliver works any time of the year. A garlic and mint flavoured olive oil is used to baste the lamb while it's roasting in the oven. The meal is served with potatoes, carrots, leeks and green beans. The only note of caution is with the chicken stock. These sometimes contain gluten, but gluten free versions are widely available.
3. Lemon Scented Quinoa Salad
Lovely salad in a bowl from Heidi of 101 Cookbooks, where quinoa is served with chickpeas, red onion, fresh coriander and a killer tahini dressing. Simple, beautiful food that is a meal in a bowl.
