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.

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!

Coconut Brown Rice Pudding

Breakfast, snack, dessert? You decide! This delicious rice pudding is a healthier alternative to the traditional white rice, milk and sugar.

It’s mornings like these that I forget that I’m eating gluten and dairy free!

Subsitute fresh or frozen blueberries for a healthier version of these gems.
