Colby Jack Cheese Quesadilla

May 9, 2018

Colby Jack Cheese Quesadilla

From Cindy Gordon of Vegetarian Mamma

When it comes to eating gluten-free, we need to make sure that the food we are putting into our bodies is indeed gluten-free. When it comes to cheese, you do need to be cautious. Love deli cheese? You have to be cautious of cross contamination from the cheese slicer in the deli. If you want to be safe and not worry, you need to search out Boar’s Head Cheese.

Boar’s Head is a family owned business that started in New York City over 110 years ago. Frank Brunckhorst founded the company out of his dissatisfaction with the quality of deli meats available at the time. He set out to create a brand that focused on quality meat, and started the line of deli meats, cheeses, and condiments that we still enjoy today. Boar’s Head prides themselves as being master craftsmen in their industry, and skilled artisans in the art of meat and cheese making. They hold themselves to high standards of quality, use only the finest ingredients, and their entire product line is gluten-free.

Boar’s Head offers 25 varieties of cheese, in styles from all over the world. You can find Vermont cheddar, Danish blue cheese, Swiss cheeses, French goat cheese, and more at your local deli. Boar’s Head has 6 varieties of Gouda cheese, fresh mozzarella, and two varieties of hard Italian cheese as well.

Boar’s Head Cheese is delicious enough to eat as a stand-alone item or on your favorite sandwich. We recently created a delicious and quick lunch option that uses Boar’s Head Cheese.

Lunch time on the weekends is hectic around my house. There always seems to be something going on. We rely on Boar’s Head to provide us with delicious tasting gluten-free cheese. Our latest creation was a quesadilla.

For this quesadilla we used the Colby Jack cheese from Boar’s Head. Colby Jack is a tasty mixture of Colby and Monterey Jack cheeses. It is a semi soft cheese that is sold in many shapes. For our quesadilla, we used the Coby Jack cheese slices.

Boar’s Head Colby Jack Cheese Quesadilla

Ingredients:

  • 1 gluten-free soft tortilla shell
  • ½ cup pinto beans, smashed
  • 2 slices of Boar’s Head Colby Jack Cheese
  • optional garnish: Sour Cream, Guacamole, Salsa, Cilantro, Green Onions

Directions:

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, warm the soft tortilla shell.
  2. Place one slice of Boar’s Head Colby Jack cheese on half of the tortilla.
  3. Next, layer the smashed beans on top of the cheese slice.
  4. Place the remaining Colby Jack cheese slice on top of the smashed beans.
  5. Fold the tortilla in half. Warm each side to a golden brown or until the cheese melts.
  6. Garnish with your favorite extras such as sour cream, guacamole, salsa, cilantro or green onions.

ENJOY!

Boar’s Head Cheese is a great option for my family. We love that the cheese slices come in resealable containers. This works out very well for my family. The cheese stays fresh and protected in the containers.

Check out the full selection on their website, you’re sure to find your favorite.

One Pot Taco Spaghetti

April 16, 2018

One Pot Taco Spaghetti

One Pot Taco Spaghetti is a delicious and comforting gluten-free dish that you can whip up in a snap for your family!

From Cindy Gordon of Vegetarian Mamma

Pasta is certainly a comfort food for me. Finding an easy recipe like Gluten-Free One Pot Taco Spaghetti is perfect for my busy nights.

I have been wanting to try a one pot pasta meal for a long time. I knew that I would have to use my favorite pasta. I used Explore Cuisine’s Organic Chickpea Spaghetti for this dish.

This dish starts by frying up some onion in a large soup type pot. Heat up that oil and throw in the oils! Can you smell them yet?

Then you are going to add in the black beans and taco seasoning. Be sure to check the label to make sure the taco seasoning is gluten-free.

Gluten has a sneaky way of finding its self into taco seasoning. So if you need to be gluten-free, please check the label.

Next up, we are adding in the remaining ingredients and three cups of water. You can leave your pasta full length or break in half.

It is up to you! Then we cover and wait! Not much longer!

Once your pasta is done, give the pasta a toss. Hopefully, you remembered to stir in that last two minutes so it didn’t stick. BUT if it did stick…no worries. It happens to the best of us! Promise!

Ingredients:

  • 1 T oil
  • 1 c onion diced
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1.4 oz package of taco seasoning make sure its gf
  • 10 oz diced tomatoes with jalapeno and cilantro or similar
  • 8 oz of Explore Cuisine Chickpea Spaghetti
  • ½ tomato diced
  • ½ c black olives quartered
  • Cilantro for garnish

Baked Corn Dogs

March 25, 2015

Baked Corn Dogs

A gluten-free corn dog recipe your kids are sure to love!


From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Gluten-Free Baked Corn Dogs

Makes about 16 corn dogs.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Oonagh’s Gluten-Free Flour Mix
  • ½ cup almond meal (or use 1 ½ cups of Oonagh’s Gluten-Free Flour Mix)
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 Tbsp. gluten-free baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 Tbsp. potato flour (optional – use potato flour for a moister cornbread)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs or ¾ cup gluten-free egg substitute
  • 2/3 cup milk. (Can substitute with buttermilk, lactose-free milk or almond milk)
  • 1 stick of butter or butter alternative melted or ½ cup olive oil
  • 12 oz. pack of gluten-free sausage, cut into tiny dices.
  • ¼ cup cooked onion, salsa, relish or anything that would complement the corn dog.
  • ¼ cup finely chopped green of green onions or chives.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  3. Whisk egg, milk, butter or oil and vanilla together.
  4. Pour wet mix over dry mix and gently stir together. Don’t over work the mixture. You can use an electric mixer, but do make sure to mix in all the dry bits. The mix will look very wet so leave batter to sit for about two minutes. Stir in sausages and chives.
  5. Divide up (about ¼ cup) the mixture on greased muffin pans.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown but the tops are barely colored. Each oven is different so start checking at 15 minutes and cook longer than 20 minutes if necessary. Dark colored pans will brown outsides before inside is cooked through. Keep in mind a moister gluten-free batter often takes longer to cook than regular flour batter.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 10-20 minutes before removing from pans.

Gluten-Free Baked Crispy Coconut Chicken

Gluten-Free Baked Crispy Coconut Chicken


Attune Foods Logo

Courtesy of Attune Foods and Chef Janet

Ingredients:Gluten-Free Baked Crispy Coconut Chicken

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 3 cups Erewhon Gluten-Free Crispy Brown Rice Cereal
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Gluten-free non-stick spray

Apricot/Peach Dipping Sauce Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp. apricot or peach jam or orange marmalade
  • 1/4 tsp. mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • Pinch dried red chili flakes
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 2 tsp. coconut aminos or gluten-free tamari

Directions:

  1. Make the sauce:
    Combine all the sauce ingredients. Depending on the jam you use, you may want to add more vinegar. Taste it and season it up to your taste. If you like it more or less spicy, adjust the amount of chili flakes. To make it more savory and less sweet, add a bit more coconut aminos or tamari. Don’t be afraid to play with the flavors, that’s what good cooks do! Just be sure to add ingredients in small amounts and continually taste as you go.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 350°.
  3. If you want chicken fingers, cut the chicken into strips trying to keep the sizes as even as possible. Otherwise, butterfly each breast and then cut in half.
  4. Put the brown rice cereal in a food processor and process until it resembles coarse bread crumbs. These make a great substitute for panko bread crumbs.
  5. Clear some counter space. You will need 2 large plates, a wide bowl (not too big) and a sheet pan or cookie sheet fitted with an oven safe wire rack sprayed with canola oil spray.
  6. Beat the egg in the wide bowl with 2 tsp. water. Leave the fork with the bowl.
  7. Put the coconut flour and brown rice flour on one of the plates, add 1/2 tsp. of the salt and mix thoroughly. If you don’t have coconut flour, all brown rice is fine.
  8. Place the rice crumbs, shredded coconut and 1/2 tsp. salt on the other plate and mix well with your fingers.
  9. Use only your left hand (the “wet” hand”) to handle the chicken and use only your right (the “dry” hand) to touch the flour and crumbs.
  10. Place the chicken on the flour plate and coat completely. Use your dry hand to sprinkle and press the flour into any crevices.
  11. Use your wet hand to transfer the chicken to the egg bowl. Coat with egg, flip with the fork. Then pick it up with the fork or your wet hand, let the excess egg drip off into the bowl and lay it onto the rice crumbs plate.
  12. Use your wet hand to flip. Then use your dry hand to press the chicken down. This will help the crumbs to adhere. Flip and press again. If there are any uncoated spots use your dry hand to sprinkle and press the crumbs onto the chicken.
  13. Use your dry hand to transfer the coated breast to the wire rack.
  14. Repeat until all the chicken is coated.
  15. Bake for 10 minutes then flip. Bake another 15 minutes or so. Times will vary depending on the thickness and size of your chicken pieces.
