235 New Gluten-Free Recipe Ideas from Jamie Oliver!

I’m admittedly a bit of a recipe fanatic – I’ve got well over 1100 recipes stored in Paprika, our iPad recipe app. However, it’s always hard to find new and exciting ideas for meals and snacks, especially if we’re looking for something to meet other dietary needs (like our vegetarian and dairy-free friends).

Today we found Jamie Oliver’s gluten-free recipe page, which looks to be just the trick for spicing up our fall menu plan. It offers 235 gluten-free recipes, as well as dairy-free ideas and tons of filtering options which let you view recipes by ingredient, dish type, method, cuisine, difficulty, course, and/or occasion. There’s also an app for iPhone and iPad!

Here are a few of Jamie’s recipes that we’re looking forward to trying:

We’d love to hear your favourite fall recipes, too!

A Holiday Favourite: Candied Sweet Potatoes!

A friend of mine made this sweet potato recipe last Christmas, and it was so delicious, I just had to share it with my family. I’m glad it’s easy, because I’ve made it about a dozen times since then! You only need four ingredients, all of which are gluten-free. (Make sure you always read the labels, though, since you never know.) And, you can make it ahead to make holiday meals a little easier!

Gluten-Free Holiday Entertaining Made Easy!

The holidays can be a busy, stressful time, and if you find out that you’re entertaining someone with a gluten allergy or intolerance, things can become even more stressful. I’d like to share some ways to make holiday entertaining easy for everyone. 

First and foremost: do not panic! Many foods are naturally gluten-free. Most Celiacs are reasonable people who just want to be included in the meal like everyone else.

Next, talk to the person with the condition and find out what their requirements and preferences are. If they have Celiac disease, then you need to be much more careful than if the person is trying to avoid gluten to lose weight. (Case in point: A friend of mine carefully prepared a multi-course gluten-free holiday meal for a fellow on a gluten-free diet. When it came to dessert, however, he chose the gluten-containing pie! Turns out he wasn’t on a strict gluten-free diet, but was just trying to avoid carbs. Oops!)

Doing Turkey Dinner Gluten-Free

It’s the time of year when turkey seems to be everywhere. There’s nothing worse than being left out of the feast – except for eating food that is supposed to be safe and then getting sick afterwards. However, the good news is that it’s quite easy to cook a gluten-free turkey dinner!

To start, make sure that you talk with the person who has allergies to confirm what their needs are.
