Gluten Free Forty Days: Day One
A friend of mine is giving up gluten for Lent. My younger brother was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue when he was 18 months old, more than twenty years ago. Anyone who’s ever lived with someone restricted to a gluten free diet knows how hard it can be to find interesting and varied meal choices, and how frustrating this can be. It does take some extra work, a lot of patience and a lot of label reading, but I promise it can be done. It can even be done on a strict budget, my mother proved this.
Over the next forty days I will be posting at least one gluten free meal a day. Theme here on The Reckless Culinarian has been Vegetarian since mid-September. Not all of the recipes in the Gluten Free 40 will be vegetarian, in fact a great many of them will not be.
Day one of the GF40 is kicked off with a hearty casserole dinner by G.F. Veg at Wheatless and Meatless. Pair this with your favorite veggies, or a side salad and you have a healthy, filling meal. If I weren’t a vegetarian I would most likely add some fresh, grass-fed ground beef to the casserole. Since I am, I would load this sucker down with portobello and shitake mushrooms. Either way, I’ve tried a great many recipes from Wheatless and Meatless and I can personally attest that it always tastes great!
