Gluten-Free Recipe of the Week

Southern Sweet Potato Casserole

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Ingredients:

Filling

  • 3 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (about 3 large potatoes, roughly 3 lbs. total weight)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter (I also make this with Earth Balance for a dairy-free version)
  • 1/3 cup sugar - white or light brown
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 extra large or 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup milk (1% is okay; I’ve also made this with lactose-free milk and almond milk) 

ToppingGluten-free sweet potato casserole

Directions:

1. Combine the filling ingredients and mix well. Spread in a greased 9” x 13” pan, two 9” pie plates or one deep 10” pie plate. You can also pour into eight ½-3/4 cup custard cups or ramekins.

2. Mix the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the sweet potato mixture.

3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, depending on dish used for cooking. The casserole rises like a cake and then will deflate on cooling. A wide, shallow dish should be ready in 30 minutes; the deep 10” dish will take 40 minutes.

 

Tips & Alternatives:

Note that if you refrigerate it overnight for baking fresh on Thanksgiving, it will take longer because you are starting with colder ingredients.

For smaller quantities, I use a 2 cup oven proof casserole and only 1 sweet potato and divide ingredients by 3. The casserole is full and should be baked on a baking sheet since the topping may overflow as the sweet potato mix rises.

Gluten-Free Winter Tabbouleh

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Gluten-Free Winter Tabbouleh

Ingredients:

Salad

  • ½ cup raw quinoa grain cooked as directed and cooled
  • ½ cup raw cauliflower, divided into tiny florets
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
  • Greens of 2 green onions (scallions, spring onions)
  • ¼ cup chopped, toasted nuts (walnuts are traditional; I prefer cashews)
  • 2 ribs of celery, washed and cut into small slices
  • 1/3 cup of dried cranberries

Dressing

  • ¼ cup regular olive oil
  • 1 tsp. gluten-free Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. white Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (You can also replace the 1 Tbsp. of Balsamic vinegar with an additional tablespoon of lemon juice)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Combine all dressing ingredients and mix well. Drizzle over cooked quinoa.

2. Add remaining ingredients and stir until the dressing and ingredients are well incorporated. Let sit for an hour or more to let the flavors meld.

Tips & Alternatives:

Add more nuts and feta cheese on top as a finishing touch.

Don’t add spinach - it will wilt and turn brown.

Try adding chopped apple for a fresh bite. Toss it in with some orange slices - the acidity will keep the apple from browning, and it’s better than adding lemon juice mixed with water.

Other quinoa salad options:

  • Make a guacamole version with avocado, fresh mango instead of dried fruit, cilantro and jalapeno.
  • Go Greek with oregano, artichokes and olives.
  • For Italian flavors, try basil, bell peppers and sun-dried tomatoes.

Remember to rinse the quinoa before cooking to get rid of the saponin (natural insect repellent on the quinoa grains) smell and taste. Put quinoa in the sieve and run cold water through it for a few minutes.  I frequently rub the grains at the same time.

Indulgent Mini Cornbreads

From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Want more recipes from Chef Oonagh? Keep an eye out for her column in NFCA’s December 2014 newsletter, hitting inboxes on December 4.

I wanted a more indulgent corn bread.  I remember the soft, buttery, cake-like corn breads often served in restaurants that my husband can eat.  Sorry, New England-style is sweet.  My everyday cornbread has fat-free milk or almond milk, olive oil and liquid egg substitute.  Very tasty without the fat calories. This version is just from cornmeal.  I find that I like the “grittiness” of Arrowhead Mills cornmeal, (labeled gluten-free).  Other friends like coarser or smoother corn meals.  Bob's Red Mill make both.  Their version is grittier since it is stone ground, but more nutritious. A coarser corn meal might also make a drier cornbread.

I should remember not to experiment with a recipe when I am busy, with my husband home and back aching.  I ended up making these with 5 oz. 10 Tbsp. of butter instead of the 6 Tbsp. I tell you in the recipe.  So beyond indulgent to evil!  They were very good, but the butter quantity is crazy. So stick with the 6 Tbsp. recipe.  It's still a lot of butter.

Makes 6 mini loaves, a little bigger than 2x4”Gluten-Free Indulgent Mini Cornbreads

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. 6 Tbsp. (85g) soft butter or substitute, melted
  • 1/3 cup (2+1/2 oz., 70g) sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. (5ml)  gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (5 oz., 145g) labeled gluten-free cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum (They are crumbly without xanthan gum.  My husband complained, I didn't mind.)
  • ½ cup (120 ml., 4 fl. oz.)  buttermilk (Add 1 tsp. lemon juice to almond milk etc. for dairy-free.  In New Hampshire, we can easily buy “real” buttermilk.)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Maple syrup to finish

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease 6 cavity mini loaf pan.
  2. Place all ingredients in bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes until creamy and fluffy.  If the mixture looks too stiff, add 1-2 Tbsp. more buttermilk.
  3. Scoop into greased mini loaf pans and smooth surface.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes until risen and golden brown.
  5. Brush tops of warm cornbread with maple syrup.  Of course you can also whip some maple syrup into soft butter to serve with cornbread.

Alternative Suggestions: You can add some chopped jalapeñoes, cheese, herbs, bits of bacon, red pepper.

Ladyfingers

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Makes about 24 ladyfingers

This is based on a regular flour recipe from my friend Cheryl Emerson, a pastry chef instructor at Milford High School’s Culinary Arts Department. I’ve adapted it to be gluten-free.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar - superfine if you have it
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup gluten-free flour or cornstarch (I actually use ½ cup less 1 Tbsp)
  • ½ tsp baking powder

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick liner. Get out pastry piping bag with a ½ inch plain piping tube. You can also use a large Ziploc bag with the corner cut off to make ½ inch opening.

3. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until they are stiff. Add half of the granulated sugar and whisk until stiff again. Fold in remaining half of granulated sugar.

4. In separate bowl, whisk egg yolks, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt until thick and creamy and lighter colored.  About 4 minutes.

5. Gently fold egg yolk mix into egg white mix, taking care not to deflate.  Use a large stainless steel spoon and fold in figure 8 motion. Do not over mix since you will be adding flour mix.

6. Mix together flour and baking powder and sift onto egg mix and gently fold in. Scrape down sides gently with spatula and reach to bottom of bowl with spatula so everything is mixed in, but still keeping fluffiness. This is not a time to beat vigorously.

7. Gently spoon mix into piping bag and pipe roughly 3” long fingers onto lined sheet, leaving about 2” between each finger. 

8. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes until ladyfingers are risen, rounded and light golden brown.

9. Remove from oven and let cool before you try to remove ladyfingers from baking sheet. These are soft ladyfingers.  For crispy/dry ladyfingers, cook additional 5-10 minutes, taking care that they do not get too brown.

Tips & Alternatives:

To make a pie crust, cook the ladyfingers to crispy/dry point, then cool and crumble.

For a sponge cake: Grease and line a 9” cake pan. Gently spoon batter in and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Cake should be well risen, light golden brown and softly firm to the touch.

Orange Cranberry Cake

From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Cranberrt Orange Cake

Want more recipes from Chef Oonagh? Keep an eye out for her column in NFCA’s December 2014 newsletter, hitting inboxes on December 4.

This recipe came by way of my gluten-free physical therapist, Linda, from her aunt Mary Waliszak from a newspaper 50 years ago. I just added orange to the batter. Linda says she makes it one for one with Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix.  I found I liked to add a bit more baking powder.  Remember, Pamela's already contains raising agents. The recipe says 1-2 cups of whole fresh cranberries.  Linda doesn't have a sweet tooth so she uses 2 cups cranberries.  Another friend with young children uses only 1 cup of cranberries.  I went the happy medium and used 1+1/2 cups and my husband thought it had too much of 'sour' cranberry tang – I didn't.  Also, with 1+1/2 or 2 cups of cranberries, it is much moister than with 1 cup. You could always add a bit more sugar or dates if you want to use 2 cups cranberries.

Makes 1 Bundt pan, muffins, or two 8x4 loaf pans

Ingredients:

  • 2+1/4 cup (9 oz., 255g) Pamela's Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix.
  • 1 cup (7 oz.) sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 cup (4 oz., 100g) chopped nuts
  • 1 cup (4+1/2 oz., 130g) chopped dates
  • 1-2 cups whole fresh cranberries (4-8 oz., 110-220g)
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Grated zest of a large orange or 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) orange extract – my choice
  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) gluten-free vanilla extract – my choice
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml., 6 fl. oz.) oil (I use regular olive oil)
  • 1 cup (240 ml., 8 fl. oz.) buttermilk

Glaze:

  1. Mix ½ cup (120ml) thawed orange juice concentrate and ½ cup sugar. (I also used orange marmalade and orange juice.)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in an 8 cup (2 liter) bowl
  3. Add eggs, oil, extracts and buttermilk and mix well.
  4. Pour into greased and gluten-free floured tube pan or two 8x4 loaf pans.  I used a regular 10 cup bundt pan.
  5. Bake for 1 hour – check time at 50 minutes as each oven varies. Cake is lovely golden brown, softly firm, pulling away from the sides, didn't dome.
  6. Remove from oven, and let stand until lukewarm.  It has a tendency to crumble while warm and cuts best when totally cold.
  7. Remove from pan and brush or drizzle with orange glaze.

Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

bread pudding

Makes an 8x8 deep serving pan

Ingredients:

Pudding:

  • 2 plain gluten-free bagels (about 8 oz. weight) cut into ½ inch squares (like tic-tac-toe)
  • 2 cups half and half or mix of half and half and milk
  • 1 x 15 or 16 oz can solid pack pumpkin – not pie filling
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. gluten-free pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract
  • ½ cup  golden raisins
  • ½ cup chopped nuts

Sauce:

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup heavy or whipping cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix half and half, pumpkin, brown sugar, eggs, spices and vanilla together in a 10-12 cup bowl until blended.
  3. Stir in raisins and nuts.  Fold in bread cubes. I like to mix this together in a bowl, refrigerate overnight, stir and then turn into greased 8x8 pan.
  4. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 40-60 minutes until bread is puffy and golden, does not ‘slosh’ around with excess milk mixture and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm with caramel sauce.

Sauce:

  1. Melt butter and brown sugar together in a non-stick pan over a medium heat.  Watch so that neither butter nor sugar burn. 
  2. Add cream and stir well until sugar has completely dissolved.  Serve in an oven-proof jug with the pudding.  The sauce will stiffen on cooling but can be reheated gently.  Sauce will keep in the refrigerator for about one week.

Note: There are lots of good caramel sauces in the shops, so you can save some time by purchasing a ready-made sauce.
