May's Gluten-Free Recipe Rodeo

Summer FRESH.

As promised in early May, here is a round-up of summer fresh gluten-free recipes, hand selected in the spirit of Celiac Awareness Month. So grab a glass of lemonade, park your carcass and kick your boots off, Honey. There are some mighty fine and tasty gluten-free recipes out there.

My theme? Grilling, picnic food, and dining al fresco.

You'll find recipes for omnivores, vegans, ovo-lacto vegetarians and pescatarians. Enjoy!

Easy, Fresh and Fast Yellow Tomato Salad

And what about this luscious looking yellow tomato salad? So easy it's scary.

Yellow Tomato Salad

Pick the most ripe and juicy tomatoes you can find and you won't need to fuss.

5-6 medium sized vine-ripe yellow tomatoes, sliced
2 tablespoons good fruity extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Fresh chopped parsley or basil, as needed
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Tip: If it's hot out, chill your serving plate first.

Arrange the sliced yellow tomatoes on a chilled salad plate. Drzzle with the extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Dust with fresh herbs. Sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper.

Serves 4.

I just wanted to write to let you know how wonderful I think your site is and what a service you are doing to help so many people. My 18 month daughter has to be on a restrictive diet (no wheat, oat, rice, eggs, milk or dairy, garlic, onion just to name a few). Since I'm still nursing her, it is a diet the whole family is on.

When I came across your site, I was able to use several recipes and you have made the transition so much easier for us. The site is also beautiful to look at and easy to navigate (I'm a graphic designer so I pay attention to these things :)

Thanks so much for telling others about your story and sharing these wonderful recipes!


Hilary said...

Hi Karina. I discovered your blog (actually both of your blogs) this week and I wanted to write you a note to say thank you. I have been working to get all of the hidden forms of gluten out of my diet, and lately I've come to the realization that I'm going to have to eat at home mostly if I want to stay well. I'm trying to be optimistic, and to embrace this change as an exciting new opportunity, and your inspiring blog is going to make it much easier and much more fun!

I've been pouring over your recipes, and will try the pesto tonight for dinner. I have no doubt that it'll be delicious. I can't wait!

And I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better and that you're feeling inspired to paint again. I'm also an artist, a painter, so I'm enjoying your blog even more from that perspective. I'm looking forward to seeing your new work.

Thank you again!

Best wishes,

Thank you.

A damp Memorial Day weekend, with a mist ringing our Rocky Mountain foothills. I wanted something in the oven...hoping that dinner would heat my rural Montana kitchen. I settled upon your Balsamic Roasted Veggie Smothered Bake Potato, and it did a wonderful job of warming our souls and chasing the damp chill from the house.

We opened a smooth bottle of Chianti and commenced preparations while the mellow jaz sound of Bozeman's Jeni Fleming Trio crooned in the background. Three Labradors snored on the floor, content to make us step around them as we prepared dinner. Rain settled outside, the creek churned across the meadow and inside the house the sweet aroma of something fine wafted about, and we didn't mind one bit that the sun was missing from our 3-day weekend.

It's such a joy to venture to your blog. Food is quiet joy, sweet togetherness, and warm satisfaction.

Thank you for understanding that.

Dear Karina,
I just found your blog after finding out that one of my sons, as well as my husband (and quite possibly my babe) have completely absurd allergies. As I love to cook (can't bake to save my life), I was devastated.

And then I found your blog.

You are a rockstar, angel and absolutely a goddess. You have just re-affirmed my faith in everything good.

Your entire website looks DIVINE. Shame I am on a 10 day cleanse right now, but cooking for the family is once again starting to look like fun.

Why don't you publish a new book? Host a t.v. Show? Hell, do whatever you want, but you should be everyone's gluten free goddess. Especially given the way the world of allergies is turning!

Goddess, yes - you get my vote.

Many thanks,
Paula in Toronto

I don't think my GF blog is listed -- could I be added? My whole blog is nothing but GF recipes (I removed them from my other blog and made an exclusively-gf site).

Thanks for your site, and all you do for The Cause!

valerie said...

...for re-designing your web site and including a direct link to your recipes. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this.

As well, thank you for all the wonderful GF recipes and ideas. I've even got non-celiac people at work making the switch to GF --several of them have bookmarked your site and have tried your recipes.

Thanks again,

Great post and vine ripe tomatoes? Nothing better!

Slacker Mom (aka Mrs. GF) said...

Thank you for the linkage love! ;)
Recently, I have had quite a few people talk to me about being dairy free or gf and dairy free, and they have been missing cheese a I keep on sending them over to your cheese sauce recipe (with nutritional yeast), and they get so happy just thinking about it.

Thanks for such a great resource,
Slacker Mom

(maybe I should change it to Slacker Blogger.:)
