Gluten Free Recipes

Chances are that you’re on this page because you have Celiac disease or a wheat allergy. If so, you’re in good company. The number of individuals leading a gluten-free lifestyle continues to grow.

Four out of 100 children in the U.S. currently have a food allergy, with numbers rising an astronomical 18 percent in the ten years between 1997 and 2007, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. While allergic reactions can be triggered from a variety of foods, the center has determined that more than 90 percent of reactions are from eight types of food—one of them being wheat.

So whatever your reasons for being here on this page, welcome to our gourmet gluten-free club. You’ll be happy to know that a gluten-free life doesn’t mean a boring one. Supermarkets continue to ramp up supply of gluten-free foods and we’re here to help you enjoy a tastier life without that pesky little food protein who you refuse to let ruin your fun.

Gourmet Gluten Free Recipes

Speaking of fun, let’s get this party started the gluten-free way. Call up your buddies, grab your best gluten-free chips and mix up our Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Summer Butter Bean Salad, and a plate of Baked Tomatoes for your guests as they sit around the television. They’ll be so impressed with your treats they won’t even guess your menu is gluten-free (or that your house could use a good cleaning). If the movie’s boring and they end up snoozing on your couch for the night, give them some Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Apple Muffins/Pancakes before you kick them out of your house the next morning.

So, casual events are not your thing. Rest assured--Gourmet Recipes has something for high brow, gluten-free folks too. For a formal dinner party affair, light the fireplace and wow your guests with a first course of Very Simple Nettle Soup or Cream of Asparagus Soup. When the mood turns to dinner, serve up delicious main meals and sides like Autumn Waldorf Salad, Romano Bean Casserole with Winter Squash and Mushrooms or Wild Rice Pilaf. And to top it all off, offer a mouth-watering array of fruits along with a specially created treat of Gluten-Free Hot Chocolate.

Gluten Free Diet and Nutrition

In the midst of all your fun, Mr. or Ms. Gluten-Free, don’t forget about your nutritional needs. Gluten is found in a variety of foods and you should always take care to carefully read food labels when purchasing products. The protein is found in wheat, barley, rye, malts and triticale, as well as used as a food additive. In addition to avoiding intake of gluten, also manage your intake of important vitamins and minerals. A carelessly planned, gluten-free diet can leave you lacking important nutrients like iron so care must be taken to eat nutrient-packed foods.

Okay, enough of all this serious talk. You’ve got a party to host.
