Gluten-Free Recipe of the Week


From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Minestrone Soup

Makes about 20 cups


  • 1 lb. of gluten-free Italian sausage – pork or turkey, hot, sweet or with fennel – your choice. Slice through the casing and peel like a banana.
  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped, 2 cloves of garlic (or more), peeled and finely crushed
  • 2 large carrots peeled, quartered lengthwise and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 4 stalks of celery hearts or 2 stalks of full length celery, washed, trimmed, quartered lengthwise and cut into ½-inch pieces.
  • 1 x 28 oz. can of plum peeled tomatoes in juice
  • 2 medium-sized zucchini/summer squash, washed, trimmed, quartered lengthwise and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 6 cups  (48 oz.) water,
  • 1 x 12oz. can of V8 vegetable juice (labeled gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free ketchup
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) uncooked gluten-free elbow macaroni or other small pasta, rice or quinoa.
  • 1 x 11 oz.  can sweet corn
  • 1 x 14 oz. can of kidney beans, pinto beans or chickpeas, drained and rinsed


  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat and add sausage removed from skins.  Stir, breaking the sausage up with a spoon into small pieces. 
  2. Add onions, garlic, celery and carrots. Stir well and allow to cook for about 5 minutes until starting to soften.
  3. Add can of tomatoes, crushing whole tomatoes between your fingers as you add them.  Add water, V8 juice, pepper and tomato ketchup.  Bring to the boil, cover and turn down to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes.
  4. Add zucchini, corn, beans and macaroni, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes
  5. Turn off heat and let stand for about 15 minutes.  Taste and either add herbs and other seasoning now per your preferences now.
  6. Serve with some pesto swirled in if you like, some grated parmesan, or grated fontina – a tasty melting cheese with more flavor than mozzarella.

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.

Cranberry Orange Quinoa Pudding

From EA Stewart of The Spicy RD

Cranberry Orange Quinoa Pudding

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Makes 7 - ½ cup servings


  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 1/2 cups lactose-free milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Place cranberries and orange juice in a medium sauce pan, and heat until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for approximately 5 minutes, or until cranberries have "popped" and are cooked through.
  2. Add quinoa, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and orange zest to orange juice and cranberry mixture, and heat until boiling. Turn heat down to medium low and cover ~2/3 of the pan. Cook mixture for ~ 30 minutes, or until pudding consistency is achieved. Stir every 3-5 minutes to prevent sticking. While quinoa is cooking, place sliced almonds on a baking sheet, and bake in oven for 4-5 minutes, or until lightly brown and toasted.
  3. Divide quinoa pudding equally in to 7 serving dishes, and top with toasted almonds. Serve warm, or you may chill pudding in fridge, and serve cold.

Mascarpone Strawberry Creams

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Makes about 8 small ramekins.

This is a very soft, very rich dessert. Try using sweet raspberries, peaches, nectarines or whatever fruit is in season. Put the entire recipe in a serving bowl and dish out with the shortbread, or spoon into individual ramekins for a single-serving treat.


  • 8 oz., 250 g mascarpone or ricotta cheese
  • 6 Tbsp., 90 ml powdered/icing sugar
  • 2 Tbsp., 30 ml orange or almond liqueur or vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 x 3.5 oz, 100 g, bar of white chocolate, finely grated
  • 1 cup, 250 ml heavy/whipping cream
  • About 8 large strawberries, washed, hulled and cut up small. If you are going to make this in a large bowl, just add as many strawberries or other fruit as you want.   


  1. Mix the mascarpone with sugar, liqueur, grated chocolate and liquid cream. 
  2. Add fruit of choice. Taste to see if you want more sugar or liqueur.
  3. Stir in prepared fruit. Put into one container or divide among 8 small ramekins. If you like, melt 1 tsp. gelatin with one tablespoon of cold water and stir into the cheese mix. Line small ramekins with plastic wrap, add cheese mix, leave to set in fridge, then very carefully turn out onto individual plates and remove plastic wrap.
  4. Refrigerate for several hours to allow flavors to develop.

Tips and Alternatives:

Don’t substitute cream cheese for the mascarpone - there is no comparison in the flavor. You can make this by substituting ricotta and lining small ramekins with cheesecloth so excess liquid drains out.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Mocha Cake

From Annette Marie of Best Life Gluten-Free


Gluten-Free Chocolate Mocha Valentine's Day Cake



  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup hot water
  • ½ cup hot brewed coffee (Decaffeinated is ok too)
  • Flour blend: ¾ cup white rice flour, ½ cup tapioca starch or flour, ¼ cup cornstarch or potato flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. xanthan gum
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup sweet butter (or your substitute of choice)
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp. sweet butter - room temp.
  • 5 Tbsp. light corn syrup (The corn syrup makes the shiny effect)
  • Any drops of water needed to thin it out if it’s too thick to pour.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. First make the coffee. We need it hot. In a small bowl, put the hot coffee and cocoa. Stir well to dissolve well. Add the hot water and stir again.  Set aside.
  3. In a separate larger bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Combine with a spatula and then sift all.
  4. In a third bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar to blend well enough to have a smooth consistency. Add the vanilla and then add the eggs, one at a time. Beat well.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the butter-sugar bowl a little at a time, beating after each addition.  After all of the dry ingredients have been added, pour in the cocoa-coffee liquids and beat until really smooth.
  6. In a well-greased and gluten-free floured pan, pour the batter and smooth top with the spatula.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, watching carefully after 30 minutes. All ovens vary, so keep an eye on it.
  8. The toothpick test works here (must come out dry to signal it’s done!) Wait 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before frosting or glazing.


  1. In a small saucepan, on low heat, place the chips, corn syrup and soft butter.
  2. Constantly stirring with a wooden spoon, melt the chips and keep working until you see everything combined. It will be very silky and shiny.
  3. Immediately pour on top of cake. With spatula, spread to edges and watch it pour over the sides.  Before you pour, if you feel it looks too thick for pouring, add a drop or 2 of water and stir well to blend it in. (I only had to add about 1 Tbsp. of water to mine.)

This is a rich, chocolate-y glaze. If you love chocolate, this is the dessert for you! If it’s for your Valentine, add a kiss!

Beer Braised Beef with Blistered Shisito Peppers

From Jackie Ourman of Celiac and Allergy Friendly Epicurean (C.A.F.E.)

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients:Beer Braised Beef with Blistered Shisito Peppers

  • 2.5 lbs. beef sirloin tips, cut into 2″ pieces
  • 1 12 oz. bottle of gluten-free beer (New Planet gluten-free pale ale was used by Jackie Ourman)
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 1 14.5 oz. can whole peeled tomatoes, drained, rinsed and crushed with your hands
  • 3-4 medium onions cut into 1″ thick rounds
  • 1 large poblano or dried ancho pepper, stem and seeds removed and chopped into large pieces
  • 5 garlic cloves, smashed
  • Salt and pepper to taste (be very generous!)
  • 15-20 shishito peppers (optional)
  • Cotija cheese (optional)
  • Sliced scallions, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and let beef sit at room temperature at least 30 minutes. Pour beer and vinegar into a 5 qt. Dutch oven (or medium, heavy bottomed, oven-safe pot with a lid) and add crushed tomatoes. Nestle onion rounds in one layer around the bottom of the pot. There should be enough to cover most of the surface and they should just peak out at the top of the liquid.
  2. Add pepper and garlic cloves and lay meat on top of onions so they are mostly above the liquid. Cover the pot and put in the oven for about 3 hours, until meat is browned on top and can be easily shredded with 2 forks. Remove meat from braising liquid and toss out large pieces of onion. Add remaining ingredients to a blender and process until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste and pour over shredded meat.
  3. Heat a dry, large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and cook shishitos, turning occasionally, until blistered on all sides.
  4. Serve shredded beef over gluten-free arepas, with corn tortillas or layered on your favorite nachos with peppers, cotija cheese and scallions.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:Japanese-Style Chicken Curry

  • 4 cups gluten-free chicken broth
  • 3-inch square Kombu seaweed
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 Tbsp. canola oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups diced yellow onion
  • 2 tsp. finely minced or grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp. finely minced garlic

  1. Combine chicken broth and Kombu in a medium pot. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes
  2. Generously season chicken with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a large skillet or Dutch oven over high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add chicken and stir-fry until golden brown on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-high and add remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Add onion, ginger and garlic and sauté until onions start to soften, about 2 minutes.  Add curry powder and cayenne, and sauté for 1 minute more. Sprinkle in the brown rice flour and sauté until browned and aromatic, about 2 minutes.
  4. Remove pan from heat and add 1/2 cup broth, stirring vigorously to combine. Add two more 1/2 cups broth, stirring vigorously after each addition, and incorporating any browned bits from bottom of the pan.
  5. Return pan to heat, remove Kombu, and add remaining chicken broth, crushed tomatoes and 1 teaspoon vinegar. Stir well to combine.
  6. Add carrots, potatoes, reserved chicken and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and loosely cover. Cook at a slow simmer, stirring often, for 30 minutes, or until potatoes are just tender when pricked with a fork.
  7. Add shredded apple, honey, remaining 1 teaspoon vinegar and a big pinch of salt. Stir well and loosely cover. Continue to cook at a slow simmer for 15 minutes, or until the apples have melted into the curry and the vegetables are really tender.
  8. Serve over steamed rice.
