After my son and I got diagnosed with Celiac disease two years ago, I had to get creative in the kitchen and come up with lots of options for meals that are gluten-free. Here are some family favorites that everyone loves: Gluten-Free Pizza, Black Bean Tacos and Shrimp & Veggie Stir Fry.
’ve always loved a good veggie stir-fry. For years, my favorite dish was a light but hearty vegetable stir-fry from a neighborhood restaurant. When I moved uptown, I decided to embark on a mission to make it on my own. While a stir-fry is relatively easy, the challenge was recreating the seasonings to achieve a similar flavor. I can't say my recipe tastes exactly the same, but it sure does hit the spot when a craving hits. Luckily my husband and son enjoy it almost as much as I do! Stir-Fry Recipe: 2 tablespoons coconut oil 1 tablespoon sea salt 1 tablespoon ginger, minced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon tamari 1 cup cauliflower, cut into small florets 1 small yellow onion, chopped 1 cup carrots, cut into ¼” thick pieces 8 ozs boneless, organic chicken, sliced into small pieces (optional) 1 cup kale, chopped in medium size pieces 2 cups of brown rice Preparation: I’m a minimalist when it comes to stir-frys. It ruins the taste of the vegetables when they’re drenched in a sauce. Start with coconut oil, it’s got great flavor and holds up much better than olive oil when cooking at high temperatures. Once the oil is heated, sprinkle in the ginger and garlic until it becomes brown. Toss in the vegetables and cook until they’re tender. Add in the tamari and extra seasoning to taste. Once it’s done, plate with brown rice and it’s ready to serve.
A stir-fry is one of my favorite go-to dinners. It's quick and easy to make and you can change it up in infinite ways depending on what ingredients you have on hand. I like to throw in lots of vegetables and then whatever protein I have on hand: chicken, fish, grass-fed beef or cashew nuts. Last night I made a chicken stir-fry for my husband and I. I mixed up a quick sauce of ginger and peanut butter - but I could have just as well used almond or cashew butter - and the final result was quite delicious.
