Trader Joe’s Chicken Tortilla Soup

14 November 2011

0 Comments

This is a first for me.  Both of the TJ’s that I frequent have at least one area for food samples (and at the Newport shop there is a wine bar! I know you’re jealous…cheese too!)  So one of the TJ’s samples I had recently was some Chicken Tortilla Soup.  I thought it was a […]

Mini Asian Meatloaf

I know what you’re thinking – “Meatloaf? Really Todd?” Yes, really!  These aren’t your oft maligned and dreaded slabs of American diner fare you might be familiar with.  These are tender Asian inspired little loaves of deliciousness!  Hell, you could roll these into meatballs and cook them up that way too! I’ve included a sauce […]

Gluten Free Chicken Sate

When Shani and I were in Indonesia last year, we had the good fortune of checking into a hotel that also served as the temple for a local religious sect.  I’m not sure what faith they practiced, but there was a 5X life sized sculpture of a deity throwing arrows from his chariot while being […]

Gluten Free Pad Thai Spirals

  We’ve been really craving some Pad Thai lately.  The sweetness of the sauce, the crunch of the peanuts, the slight tang of the lime – yum!   Of course, when you need to eat gluten free it’s never as easy as just hitting up the local Thai food place.  My confidence level in getting […]

Easy Gluten Free Crepes

Trader Joe’s used to have this awesome gluten free pancake mix that I always used for my crepes.  Alas, they have discontinued it…leaving Shani and I in a quandary.  I’ve tried a couple of other flours but got really mixed results.  Finally, we settled on Bob’s Red Mill all purpose flour. (Not currently available at […]

Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets and Sweet Potato Fries

  Who doesn’t love chicken nuggets, right?  Poor Shani was so sad when she realized this was one of the foods pretty much off her list due to her gluten allergies.  And it definitely is when we eat out.  However, with some creativity, I’ve been able to make a pretty good little nugget that’s a […]

Gluten-Free Chicken Marsala with Shitake Mushrooms

This is both a simple and elegant way to serve chicken.  It’s also classic old school and should be in your gluten-free tool box.  The standard recipe calls for shiitake mushrooms, but I like to also add some cremini mushrooms to add a little depth to the mushroom flavor in this dish.  The shiitake mushrooms […]

9 Veggie Quinoa and Chicken

18 May 2011

0 Comments

While I realize 9 veggies is quite a lot, it was what I had on hand at the time.  With the mix being half fresh and half frozen, it’s not a lot of effort to add all of them.  It also makes the dish have a little more of a complex flavor, as sometimes you’re […]

Quick Gluten Free BBQ Chicken Pizza

  Before we realized that Shani needed to live a gluten free life, one of our regular dates on date night was pizza and beer. Really, who doesn’t love pizza (and beer!)?  We might have noticed that by the time we walked home, she was almost in a coma, but we didn’t put 2 and […]
