Wild Rice Pilaf

Living in a gluten-free household has required me to discover many new grains to incorporate into our meals. Wild rice is typically a bit more expensive, but well worth the splurge! It has such an amazing, nutty flavour and smells incredible while cooking.

I wanted to try something a bit different with the wild rice this time so I picked apart several pilaf recipes and came up with my own. This recipe can be easily adapted to cater vegetarians and meat eaters alike.

Sun Dried Tomato Pasta

This is a very simple and fast weeknight dinner that makes delicious leftovers for lunch the next day. The combination of the sweet sun dried tomatoes with the bitter arugula is mouth-watering. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s my favourite dish at the moment, although if you ask my husband everything we eat is my “favourite” and maybe he’s right … I slow down and take the time to enjoy every bite of all our meals making them that much more enjoyable.

Curried Spinach & Avocado Hummus

We’re having company over tonight so I decided to whip up a new dip to serve with blue corn tortilla chips as a snack. I love hummus and guacamole so instead of deciding between the two I attempted to make a dip which combines the two flavours and it was a success! Healthy and delicious this dip is bursting with flavour and nutrients. Creamy, yet dairy-free this dip will be a hit, even for those who are not gluten-free!

Jambalaya

This is an easy recipe that is open for experimentation. Just throw together whatever meat, seafood, vegetables and spices you desire (or have on hand) and it makes one delicious gluten-free, casein-free dish! We thought we’d give it a try with what we had in the fridge and cupboards, not having to make a run to the grocery store for additional ingredients.

Mango-Balsamic Glazed Chicken

This recipe is easy to prepare for nights when you don’t feel like cooking and it yields delicious results. It can also be budget friendly if you buy a whole chicken and cut it into quarters yourself or buy legs with the thigh attached. Feel free to try this recipe with your favourite fruit preserves, apricot is another one of our favourites.

Look for a brand that makes fruit preserves or jams without added sugar (or the addition of artificial sweeteners.) St.Dalfour’s and Crofter’s Organic both make fruit spreads that are sweetened with fruit juice.
