Gluten Freedom: September 2009

So here we are again…Gluten Freedom-Part Deux. In this article I will give you three recipes, which will include a vegetarian, meat and desert dish.

White Bean Hummus
2 Cups White Beans
2 Cloves Garlic
½ Cup Olive Oil (good olive oil-1st Cold Pressed &Extra Virgin)
1 Lemon (juice only) Use local and support your community!!!!

***Soak White Beans overnight in water (cover beans with water then a bit more)***
This recipe works best with my prized and coveted Vita-Mix, but works fine in a food processor, blender, or even a Magic Bullet blender.

Add soaked white beans to bender/food processor/Vita-Mix. Add olive oil. Whir it up to a paste (add oil if needed). Drop in cleaned Garlic Cloves. Add juice of 1 Lemon, & salt to taste.

This can be served with celery stalks, carrots, Edward & Sons Brown Rice Snaps crackers, or Lydia’s Organics Raw crackers.

Wild Salmon with Wasabi
This one is so easy & makes you look really good!

2 Fresh Mana Wild Salmon fillets
Course Grind Sea/Mineral Salt
Sushi Sonic Wasabi Powder

Preheat broiler to 500 degrees. Mix your wasabi paste to desired burn factor and let sit. Take your beautiful fresh Mana Wild Salmon fillets (with skin side down), and set them on a parchment covered baking sheet. Generously sprinkle a crust of sea/mineral salt on top of salmon fillets. Broil for 10-15 minutes or until crust as browned. Remove from oven. Remove bottom skin of Salmon fillets while plating. Add “dollup” ( I think that’s a word?) of wasabi paste to plate. Serve with a local greens salad & you’ve got a whole gluten free meal!

GF Blissful Sundae

1 Pint Luna & Larry’s Vanilla Coconut Bliss Ice Cream
2 Cups Raw Organic Almonds
Fresh Local Berries from Produce Department

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Put Organic Raw Almonds on cookie sheet & place in oven for no more than 15 minutes (check them after 10). When Almonds are finished roasting remove from cookie sheet and place on cool surface for about 20 minutes (this can all be done ahead of time & with more almonds if you like…they make great GF snacks). In a bowl add Vanilla Coco Bliss ice cream, top with almonds (can be crushed 1st for added effect) and then add berries to that.

GF Chocolate Chips
GFAlaska Chocolate Syrup
Anything GF your mind can imagine!

Aloha & Peace,
