Winter Vegetable Soup

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Gluten-Free Winter Vegetable Soup

Makes 7-8 cups.


  • 2-4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • ½ lb. fresh parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • ½ lb. squash (frozen squash is fine)
  • ½ lb. carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 sweet potato (weighing roughly 1 lb.), peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sprig of rosemary (optional)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 5 cups gluten-free chicken or vegetable stock
  • 12 oz. can of coconut milk, half-and-half or light cream


1. You can do step one in one of two ways: 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Toss all the vegetables in olive oil with maple syrup, salt and pepper. Place in a cast-iron skillet or roasting pan and roast for about a half hour, until the vegetables start caramelizing. 


In a large, soup-sized pot, heat the olive oil, add vegetables, salt and pepper and start frying until they are starting to brown nicely. Once they start becoming tender, add the maple syrup to make them brown faster.  Don’t add maple syrup earlier, as it will stick and burn. Wait until the vegetables start releasing some juices.

2. Add stock, dried thyme, bay leaves and sprig of rosemary. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat to simmer and cook, covered, for about half an hour or until vegetables are falling apart tender.

3. Remove the bay leaves and rosemary sprig. Puree the soup with an immersion blender or by transferring the mixture to a stand blender.

4. Stir in can of coconut milk. (I use the blender again to mix in the milk.)

5.  Taste and adjust seasonings.  Thin the soup with more stock if it is too thick for you.

Tips & Alternatives:

Add some chickpeas or other beans to the pureed soup (perfect for a Meatless Monday!).  You can also serve with bits of ham or turkey.

Buffalo Chicken Soup

From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering


  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 5 slices of bacon, finely scissored (check the label for gluten-free)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into small dice
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely crushed
  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs. of boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Take off excess fat, then cut chicken in half lengthwise and then cut into thin strips. Chicken breast becomes too dry and chewy.
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp of ground chipotle or about 1 tsp pureed canned chipotle or gluten-free hot sauce of your choice.
  • 4 cups gluten-free chicken broth
  • Pinch of fresh black pepper
  • ¼ cup gluten-free cornstarch
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half. For fewer calories, substitute fat-free half-and-half or use whole milk. Heavy cream is wonderful but adds a lot of calories.
  • ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles* (Check the label to make sure it does not contain gluten. If you’re not a big fan of blue cheese, go light on this and give guests a bowl of crumbles so they can add to taste)


1. Put onion, bacon and oil in large pan, and gently cook until onion is soft and turning golden.

2. Add carrots and cook gently for about 5 more minutes.

3. Stir in chicken strips, smoked paprika and chipotle (or hot sauce). Stir well so chicken is covered in spice mix and let cook for about 5 minutes until chicken is seared on all sides.

4. Stir in garlic, chicken broth and freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook covered for about 30 minutes until carrots and chicken thighs are tender.

5. Blend cornstarch with 1% milk, and add this mix to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soup thickens. Then, let cook for about 3 more minutes to ensure cornstarch is cooked out with no raw flour taste left. Add half-and-half.

6. Taste soup and see if you want more pepper or hot pepper. You probably won’t need salt since the blue cheese will add sodium.

7. Add blue cheese, turn off heat and allow soup to stand for a few minutes. Then stir well to mix blue cheese throughout the soup.

8. Serve and enjoy.

Tips: Add more blue cheese as desired and use cream instead of milk and half-and-half for an amazing creamy taste, but beware – that also increases calories. Adjust the amount of heat to suit yourself and use whatever ground chili or bottled hot sauce you typically use that is gluten-free. Just remember: the hotter you make soup, the more people will drink at a party to cool down their mouths, so have plenty of water or milk to cool the flames!

I have also added small cubes of cooked Yukon gold or other firm potatoes to the soup. Don’t cook them from raw in the soup, as they will become too soft. I have also added leftover homemade creamed spinach to the soup for a tasty twist.

  A final tip: Make this 1-2 days ahead of your party, then reheat and serve in slow cooker.
*Note: The mold for blue cheese is normally grown on wheat bread, so you have to check that the blue cheese available to you is gluten-free. As of December 2010, President brand cheeses in December 2010 do not use wheat, rye or barley, there is no gluten in the plant, and they use white distilled corn based vinegar. However, the company does not guarantee that their cheeses are gluten-free, nor do they test for gluten.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering




  • 2 cups (8 oz.) pecan halvesGluten-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart
  • 1 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp butter at room temperature

Peanut butter filling

  • ½ stick butter, softened
  • ¾ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar

Mousse topping

  • 1 cup whipping or heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp packed soft brown sugar
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. Chop nuts, sugar and cinnamon in processor until nuts are finely ground. Add butter and blend until well combined.

3. Press nut mix into bottom and up sides of 9” pie plate or springform pan. Bake for 15-20  minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and cool.

4. In a bowl with an electric mixer or in a food processor, mix peanut butter, butter and vanilla essence.

5. Mix in powdered sugar until well blended. Add milk, if necessary, to make it more spreadable.

6. Spread into cooled nut crust.

7. Heat cream, sugar and vanilla in sauce pan or microwave until nearly boiling.

8. Add chocolate, leave for a few minutes and then stir until totally smooth. Let cool.

9. Pour 2/3 of chocolate mix over peanut butter layer and leave in fridge to chill and set.  The mix will not harden like a bar of chocolate, but will be firm enough to cut.

10. Once the remaining sauce has cooled (at least 1 hour in fridge, quicker in freezer; don’t attempt to whisk if it is not cold), whisk with an electric mixer until thickened like whipped cream. This will happen very quickly.

11. Pipe the stiffened chocolate mix around the edge of the pie and serve.

Tips and Alternatives: This is extremely rich, so take only small slices and enjoy feeling guilty!

For presentation, reserve 2 Tbsp of the peanut butter mix. Add some milk to make it thinner and pour into a snack size Ziploc bag. Snip a corner off the bag and pipe a continuous circle of peanut butter mix radiating out from the center of the dish. Take a toothpick, knife or skewer and gently drag the tip through circle from outside to the center to form a pattern. Refrigerate to set.

Alternative Suggestions:

This soup can vary every time you make it. Use rice instead of pasta or vary the type of gluten-free pasta you choose to use. Try spinach, artichokes, green beans, potatoes, cabbage, leeks, lettuce and fresh herbs.  Consider adding gluten-free beef or chicken concentrate or stock instead of water to strengthen the flavor.

I Can't Believe It's Not Barley and Beef Soup

From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

I can't believe it's not barley soup

(Sorry, I just couldn't resist saying that - "I Can't Believe It's Not Barley and Beef Soup!)

In England, I loved throwing barley into soups and stews, soft but chewy, different texture, totally wonderful.  With gluten-free, I happily use quinoa grains in lots of recipes, but quinoa just isn't the same as barley.  When I spoke a conference in Atlanta in May, I heard Carol Fenster say that she uses sorghum for a barley substitute. Came home, tried it and it works.  I do notice that even with soaking overnight and over an hour of cooking, plus sitting in whatever soup or stew it's in, sorghum still stays chewy and doesn't go “soggy.” So, kids who don't like texture might object to this dish or to having to chew the beef in the stew.  So, it’s easier to use ground beef.

I did notice that when I cooked sorghum on its own, it left a heavy starch ring around a non-stick pan that was difficult to clean.  My local regular grocery store carries Bob’s Red Mill sorghum grain. I used the vegetables we would use in the winter in England. Go ahead and use what you like for different flavors each time.


  • ½ cup (120 ml) sorghum grain soaked in cold water covered overnight, then drained and rinsed
  • 1 to 1 ½ lbs. (500-750 g) stew beef, cut into small pieces or use the same amount of ground beef
  • 2-4 Tbsp. (30-60 ml) olive oil
  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely crushed
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and quartered lengthwise and cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 2 sticks of celery, washed, quartered lengthwise and cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • ½ tsp. dried rosemary
  • ½ tsp. dried sage (these are herbs we have in England called Mixed Herbs.  They do not taste like an Italian herb blend)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 cups (48 fl oz.) gluten-free beef stock
  • ¼ cup (60 ml, 2 fl. oz.) tomato paste or tomato ketchup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) gluten-free cornstarch mixed with 2 Tbsp. (30 ml) cold water (optional, to thicken)


  1. In a large stock pot, heat oil, add onions and cook over medium heat until starting to brown. Add either stew meat or ground beef and cook until stew meat is seared or ground beef is brown.
  2. Add carrots and celery and cook for another 5 minutes.
  3. Add drained sorghum, garlic, herbs, stock, tomato and salt and pepper.
  4. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer, cover and cook for at least one hour.  Stew beef needs at least this length of cooking and sorghum needs at least an hour as well.  But, you have to taste it for tenderness of beef and sorghum.  Sorghum will still be chewy but shouldn't have the hard raw center of undercooked pasta or rice.
  5. Depending on how well your pan lid fits, more liquid might have evaporated, so add more at the end to your taste. I like to add some milk. My husband likes the soup slightly thickened. Taste and adjust seasonings.  I do like to throw in some loose, chopped, frozen spinach.  Chopped sun dried tomatoes at beginning are good.  You can try leeks instead of onions.  Parsnips, turnips, rutabaga (swede) and butternut squash are all good additions.
