Fruit Jell-O aka Fruit Jelly

August 2, 2018

Fruit Jell-O aka Fruit Jelly

Made with fresh ingredients, a gluten-free light version of a classic recipe (adult version with wine included too!)

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Gluten-Free Cooking with Oonagh

Have you taken a good look at what’s in the commercial packets of fruit jell-o? They say no artificial sweeteners but also make one that’s sugar free. Artificial flavor, color, and lots of sugar. What are those chemicals doing to our bodies and more particularly the kid’s bodies? I haven’t used one in several years.

This goes back to the basics of fruit juices set with packaged gelatin(e). One of my English cookbooks has fruit set with sweetened wine. It was delicious, but even though I would happily drink a glass of this wine, in a jelly (English name not jam) it was too strong. Make this just with fruit juices, just check that the juices have as many real ingredients as possible on the label and have high fruit content not just flavored water. Think of the various berry juices with berries, peach juice with fresh peaches or nectarines, mango juice (I love ‘Best’ brand from Egypt with 50% juice) with fresh mangoes (not frozen, I thought they were horrible) and raspberries. If you use wine, you have to use a wine you like the taste of in the glass, a Moscato, Prosecco with bubbles, Reisling, fruit wine, even one of the small bottles of champagne.

Fruit Jell-O

Basic proportions for 4 generous ramekins, custard cups or cocotte dishes:

  • 1 packet of Knox gelatin(e) 7 g packet from orange box in grocery store
  • 1 c (250 ml., 8 fl oz) fruit juice or wine and fruit juice mixed 50/50. You can make it 100% wine, I just thought it too strong.
  • 2 Tbsp ( 1 oz, 30 ml) sugar
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) liqueur to enhance flavor – optional with either wine or fruit juice for Adults.
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup fruit of choice – I tend to buy the fresh container of mixed cut strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, but I find you need to make this the day you buy the berries or they taste fermented or go moldy rapidly.

Directions

1. Arrange fruit in ramekins. Don’t overfill with fruit or you won’t taste wine/juice. Prettiest fruit on the bottom as you’ll be turning it out.

2. Sprinkle gelatin on top of water, stir in and it will turn into solid lump. Microwave for about 11 seconds, it will turn to a pale gold, see through liquid with no lumps. Dissolve sugar in 1/4 c of juice/wine in microwave.

3. Combine gelatin mix, wine/juice and sugar mix and plain wine/or juice , stir, taste to see if you want more sugar or teaspoon more liqueur, and then gently divide liquid between 4 dishes.

4. Refrigerate for several hours, then turn out onto plates. I like vanilla Greek yogurt as a sauce.

White Chocolate Almond Raspberry Cake

White Chocolate Almond Raspberry Cake

This delectable gluten-free cake uses almond flour for a wonderful flavor.

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Gluten-Free Cooking with Oonagh

Another variation of my master almond cake that was a 4 page cover wrap for Food and Wine magazine. Substitute different nut flour.

The geraniums are Martha Washington, and so were quite suitable for a July 4th party.
White Chocolate Almond Raspberry Cake


Cake

  • 2 oz (1/2 stick, 56 g) very soft butter or coconut oil
  • 2 oz (1/3 c, 80 ml) gf semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz (1/2 c, 112 g) sugar
  • 4 oz (1 c, 112 g) almond flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp cocoa (30 ml, 1/2 oz)
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) gf baking powder
  • salt
  • 1 tsp almond or vanilla extract


Filling

  • 1/2 c (120 ml) seedless raspberry jam or jelly – add 1-2 tbsp Chambord to jam if you want.
  • Punnet fresh sweet raspberries

White Chocolate Topping
I like the flavor of Lindt white chocolate but I’m still uncertain about safety. I have made this with Kraft Baker’s white chocolate that do say they will tell us if there are ingredients containing gluten. Why can’t it just be labeled gluten-free!!

  • 8 oz (224g) cream cheese, softened, I do use lite but it makes a softer frosting
  • 1 x 4 oz (112g) Lindt white chocolate bar or Baker’s white chocolate. I don’t like most store brand white chocolate chips as they taste waxy.
  • 1/4 c (60 ml) cream to melt white chocolate
  • 1/4 c (60 ml, 1 oz) powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c ( 4oz, 120 ml) cream, whipped to 1 c.
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) seedless raspberry jam or jelly

Directions

1.Melt butter with chocolate chips in microwave. Add rest of cake ingredients and beat together until smooth and then beat for 1-2 minutes, until fluffier.

2. Bottom line 9+1/2 ” spring form, spray bottom and sides with gluten-free food spray, dust with cocoa

3. Bake for 30 minutes in 350 degree oven

4. Remove from oven, top with seedless raspberry jam, let soften for a few minutes then spread out evenly

5. Once cool, arrange most of raspberries on top, saving a few for decoration.

6. Heat 1/4 c cream in microwave for about 40 seconds, break up white chocolate, add to cream, wait a minute, then stir until smooth.

7. Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.

8. Beat in melted white chocolate cream mix.

9. Gently beat in whipped cream and spoon on top of cooled raspberry topped cake. At this stage the frosting is almost runny, you can let it flow down sides, it will set in fridge. Large raspberries will show through the frosting.

10. Put 2 tablespoons of seedless raspberry jam in microwaveable bowl. Gently heat until runny but not boiling hot. Spoon jam into snack size ziploc, snip off tiny corner and pipe parallel lines across cake, the more lines you make, the fancier the design.

11. Then take small skewer and draw tip of skewer through raspberry lines all in one direction or alternating. Garnish with a few leftover raspberries.

Keeps well in the fridge, but serve at room temperature.

Note, I did try making this with strawberry jam, fresh strawberries and semi sweet chocolate in topping rather than white chocolate but I have a weakness for raspberries and white chocolate.

No-Bake Nut Cake – Tortas Rieŝutėlis

July 1, 2018

No-Bake Nut Cake – Tortas Rieŝutėlis

A no-bake gluten-free version of a Lithuanian nut cake.

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Gluten-Free Cooking with Oonagh

The original wheat version of this recipe came from Darbštuolė – a Lithuanian recipe magazine similar to Pillsbury Monthly. The recipe states it is from Laima Andrijauskaitė.

The original has one making an unsweetened dough, that is chilled, grated (presumably by hand like potato pancakes) and then baked to make a crunchy mix. I tried this and it was pretty awful, but it did stay very crunchy for several days in the creamy mix. So in my wheat flour days, I used a very neutral shortbread cookie ‘Sandies, simply shortbread by Keebler.’ They also boiled the can of condensed milk as we used to, to make a caramelized condensed milk. That is now available as Nestle – La Lechera – Dulce de Leche about $3 in the Goya/Mexican food aisle. Make sure you buy the right can, they also do ordinary condensed milk that looks the same but isn’t caramelized. My friend and I agreed that we had to add some rum. And then I used my chocolate ganache of cream and real chocolate melted as a topping, rather than cocoa, milk and sugar. It is very rich, so it could be cut as a small candy rather than sliced as a dessert.

Gluten-Free No-Bake Nut Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 x 7.25 oz (206g) packet of Pamela’s gluten-free butter shortbread, broken into large pieces. This is quite a soft shortbread but it doesn’t turn to mush.
  • 1 x 380g (13.4 oz or thereabouts) of Nestle Dulce de Leche caramelized condensed milk
  • 2 cups, (8 oz, 250g), nuts, coarsely chopped and toasted in 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. I used almonds and pecans. Walnuts would have been more available.
  • ½ stick (2oz, 56g) butter melted
  • 2-4 tbsps (30-60 ml) rum, brandy or chocolate liqueur. Or go for orange or almond liqueur to your own preference. I used 4 tbsp Myers dark rum. 2 tbsps give a nice flavor, 4 tbsps you can notice the alcohol. Plain rum should be naturally gluten-free, it’s the flavors added that are the dangers.


Topping/glaze:

Directions:

1. Open can of dulce de leche and empty into 4-6 c (1-1+1/2 ltr) microwave safe bowl. Add solid butter and microwave for a short time, stirring, until milk softens and butter is melted.

2. Stir in some of alcohol to give a smooth even mix.

3. Stir in nuts and shortbread. Now taste and decide if you want some more alcohol. Remember strength of flavor develops and you’ll be adding rum to topping/glaze.

4. Spoon mix into 9-10” spring form pan (for a fancy dessert) or 8×8” brownie pan to cut into candy pieces. OR line star, christmas tree or heart shape pan or other designs with plastic wrap and press mix into all the corners so design turns out crisp. The mix is ‘lumpy’ so won’t press into detailed design mold.

Smooth out as much as possible and then take a piece of plastic wrap, press onto surface of cake and press out even more to smooth top and compress mix and prevent too many air bubbles.

5. Refrigerate for several hours until firm enough to cut. I had originally tried this with cream instead of butter, but butter firms mix up more.

6. While mix is chilling, heat cream and sugar together, add chocolate and stir until chocolate has melted and is smooth and creamy, it should look like a cross between condensed milk and Hershey’s syrup – no lumps. Stir in alcohol and chill. I usually use an immersion blender to make it smooth.

7. Remove ‘torte’ from fridge, remove from spring form, remove plastic wrap and place on decorative plate. Pour about half of chocolate mix over top of cake and allow to start dribbling down sides. If the mix is too runny when you stir once you remove from fridge, then beat it slightly with electric mixer so it doesn’t ‘run’ so easily.

8. Beat remainder of chocolate mix with electric mixer until consistency of whipped cream and then pipe around top/bottom of cake. Finish with nuts, or any decoration you want.

This lasts for several days in fridge, easily made in advance of summertime parties, but will soften too much if left out in sun during party. Still delicious, but spoonable not cutable after sun.

My Father’s Real Mayonnaise

June 29, 2018

My Father’s Real Mayonnaise

A simple gluten-free recipe for homemade mayonnaise that can be jazzed up with spices for a variety of dishes!

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Gluten-Free Cooking with Oonagh

My father always made real homemade mayonnaise, in a bowl with a whisk. It was velvety smooth, just as it has been made for centuries. For years I made mayo in food processor using his quantities along with lots of fresh herbs from my garden, then I found this immersion blender version. It’s very very quick and an immersion blender is far cheaper and takes up so much less space than a food processor.

I now also serve this mayo as a dip with veggies or add garlic to make aioli for beef fondue. Spice it up any way you like!

Gluten-Free Mayonnaise from Scratch

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp (3 ml) salt
  • 50 ground pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dry English gluten-free mustard or jarred mustard
  • Green of 2 green onions, cut small
  • 1/4 c loose fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder or fresh chopped garlic
  • 3/4 c + 2 tbsp(210 ml, 7 fl oz) neutral flavored gluten-free oil, I use avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) genuine white wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • Boiling water, if needed
  • 15.5 oz (440 g) empty jar (such as one used for salsa) – you want a jar the head of an immersion blender can fit into

Directions:

  1. Put salt, pepper, sugar, mustard, vinegar and herbs in jar. Add oil. Add egg.
  2. Wait for egg to fall to bottom of jar – room temperature egg, it falls almost immediately.
  3. Insert immersion blender almost to thebottom of jar, you need to leave a space for blender to start pulling up ingredients and blend. It won’t work if you have blender at top of jar. Egg needs to be allowed to form an emulsion with oil and egg is at the bottom of jar.
  4. Turn on immersion blender, run slightly above bottom of jar, for about 20 seconds and then very slowly raise the blender up from the bottom. By the time you reach top of jar everything should be nicely blended, all oil blended in. Run blender a little longer if you need to. If it doesn’t seem to be thickening push blender to bottom of jar again and run a little longer.
  5. Remove blender, taste and adjust seasoning as needed. It can be difficult to remove blender from jar as there’s very little space. If mayo is too thick, add boiling water teaspoon at a time.


Note: herbs will make mayo either completely green or flecked with green. Of course you can make plain mayo and then finely chop herbs and add them on top to keep the white color.

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

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

Who doesn’t love an easy meal? This comfort meal is perfect served up on a cold day! But honestly, any time of the year will be just right!

You’re taking some pretty basic ingredients, then dumping them into your slowcooker. Then once you give it a stir to mix it, set the timer and forget it!

Spinach and Sundried Tomato Quiche or Frittata

March 19, 2018

Spinach and Sundried Tomato Quiche or Frittata

Great for vegetarians and anyone who enjoys a savory breakfast treat!

Spinach Quiche


Courtesy of Chef Oonagh Williams of Gluten-Free Cooking with Oonagh

For this gluten-free quiche recipe, the spinach mix can be poured into a partially cooked gluten-free pie crust or cooked on its own in a pie plate without a pie crust to be served as a frittata, or even a vegetable side dish. I tend to bake it without a crust in an 8 x 8” Pyrex dish. Also, you can cook the mix in regular muffin pans for a portable breakfast or lunch, or in mini muffin pans for parties. I’ve mixed up the recipe with cooked broccoli and feta cheese.

Make sure to point out the tomatoes aren’t bacon. Some people won’t believe you!

Ingredients:

  • 1 recipe of partially baked, gluten-free pie crust.-optional
  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. (30ml) olive oil (or butter if you want)
  • 10 oz. (300g) container/block of frozen chopped spinach (not leaf spinach), thawed and squeezed dry. Or roughly half of 16 oz. bag of frozen chopped loose spinach
  • 1/3 cup (2 oz, 56 g) sundried tomatoes in oil, cut into small pieces
  • 3 extra large eggs or 4 large eggs. Or 2 eggs and 1/2 cup gluten-free liquid egg substitute
  • 1 cup (8 fl oz, 250 ml) half and half or cream (I really notice the difference between half and half and cream in the finished quiche. But, I found that if you mix in 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) gluten-free cornstarch/corn flour to cooked vegetables and add just half and half or even fat-free half and half, it cooked to the creamy texture of heavy cream but with significantly less calories.)
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup (2 oz, 50 g) shredded Swiss cheese
  • ½ cup (2 oz, 50 g) shredded smoked Gouda or use 1 cup total of Swiss cheese or strong cheddar (Please use a strong cheese, mild cheddar doesn’t add any flavor.)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • ¼ cup fresh basil (optional)

Directions:

  1. Put onion in an 8 cup non-stick pan and add olive oil or 2 Tbsp. oil from the sundried tomato container. Cook onions for about 10 minutes until they are very soft and starting to turn gold but not burning.
  2. Add garlic, spinach and sundried tomatoes and cook gently, covered, for about 10 minutes. I found it was important to have plenty of onion and to cook spinach for enough time before putting in quiche, otherwise the quiche had a raw flavor.
  3. Lightly beat eggs, pour cream into spinach mix to cool slightly, add eggs and cheese mix with salt and pepper, and herbs if desired.
  4. Pour into partially baked pie crust, place on metal baking sheet and bake in preheated 350* oven for 30-45 minutes until the custard is set and the quiche is browning around the edges. There is no need to cook the quiche until it rises like a cake and is brown all over. Think of it as a custard that just needs sufficient cooking to set the eggs and remain creamy. Cooked at a higher temperature it will have consistency of overcooked scrambled eggs. Cooked until it rises like a cake produces a dry quiche.
  5. Remove from oven, allow to cool for about 10 minutes (it will deflate) and serve warm or at room temperature, not cold from fridge.

Options: You can leave out sundried tomatoes. I didn’t find adding roasted red pepper added significantly to the flavor. Cooked spinach works just as much on your body as spinach salad.
