Gluten Free Soy, Ginger and Honey Duck with Pak Choi and Jasmine Rice

This dish is one of my favourite oriental dishes and always tastes amazing. My husband Stuart has been cooking this for a couple of years now and we got the original idea in a magazine from a recipe that used duck legs and savoy cabbage.

Kerala Prawn Coconut Curry – Gluten Free

gluten free kerala prawn curryThis Kerala prawn curry is one of my favorite Indian dishes. Like most Indian curries it is naturally gluten free and full of fresh tasting flavours. The curry isn’t too spicy and it is relatively straightforward to make.

Gluten Free Hummus Recipe

Gluten free hummus recipeI love hummus and the great thing is that it is usually gluten free. The main ingredients are chickpeas, olive oil, garlic and lemon juice and it is widely available in supermarkets and whole food stores.

It’s also very versatile and ...

Chicken and Spinach Curry Jalfrezi Style (Gluten Free)

gluten free chicken jalfrezi spinach curryI didn’t cook Indian curries very often before I started a gluten free diet, but recently I’ve come to love them! I’ve found that pretty much every Indian curry recipe I’ve come across so far has been naturally gluten free and the taste that you get from creating a curry from scratch is just amazing!

Another good thing is that you don’t need too many specialist ingredients. You can buy all the dried herbs and spices from your local supermarket and they’ll last in your store cupboard for many months or years.

My latest creation is something that I call “Chicken Spinach Jalfrezi”. I’ve made this a ... Read More...
