gluten free thai cabbage salad recipe


Snow. Cold. Winter.
Those are normally words said about the weather here in Calgary in February and March, but not this year.
We have had a very mild winter and I am very grateful for that.

It has allowed me to get outside and walk a lot. In fact I have gotten out for a run a few times too.

Nothing makes me feel better than to feel the sun on my face, it actually energizes my soul.
With the feeling of spring comes the need to get away from warm comfort foods and eat a bit healthier and that is where this salad comes into play.
It has the crunch, warmth and freshness of a good winter salad but would also work for a picnic or barbecue outside.
In this salad I used my homemade sunflower seed butter as part of the dressing. I find that peanut butter can overwhelm dressings sometimes and I just wanted the a hint instead.
This salad remains crunchy in the fridge for 3-4 days too and would be great as a jar salad. Instead of mixing the dressing with the other ingredients just put a Tbsp on the bottom of a canning jar, then the veggies and on top a bit of cooked and cooled rice noodles.

Gluten-Free Thai Cabbage Salad

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 package rice vermicelli noodles, cooked and cooled
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked, shredded and cooled (leftover chicken works great too)
  • 1/2 small green cabbage, sliced thinly
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 english cucumber, cut into thin matchstick pieces
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 cup lightly toasted sunflower seeds
  • Dressing:
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seed butter
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 red chile pepper, chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive or avocado oil

Instructions
 

  • In a mini food processor add all the dressing ingredients and pulse until smooth.
  • Pour dressing into a small jar until ready to use.
  • In a large bowl add the shredded chicken, cabbage, cucumber, red pepper and green onion and toss.
  • Pour dressing over the mixture and toss again.
  • Add the cooled rice noodles and toss to combine.
  • Sprinkle on the sunflower seeds.
  • Serve.
  • Enjoy!

If you are wanting to serve this on individual plates this is how I would do it:

  1. Place a small mound of rice noodles on each plate.
  2. Top noodles with the chicken and veggies.
  3. Sprinkle sunflower seeds on each plate.

Note: If you are wanting to make this salad and have it last for a few days in the fridge I kept all the components separate. I had the dressing in a jar, the cabbage/chicken mixture in a bowl and the rice noodles in another bowl. This way when I wanted the thai cabbage salad I could take out the amount I wanted and toss then.

Gluten-Free Thai BBQ Chicken Pizza

gluten-free thai chicken pizza


Do you love pizza?
Well, I do.
In fact, homemade pizza is a go-to, last minute, forgot to take meat out, oh my what to make for supper option.
I’ve posted a few recipes for gluten free pizza crust on my site:

I also have gluten free pizza crust recipe that I like to use from the cookbook Cooking for Isaiah by Silvana Nardone.
I think it is good to switch things up sometimes. That also happens if you realize you have run out of rice flour and/or eggs. I like to have a few good options available to me, so that I do not feel frustrated. With switching things up in mind, I wanted to try a new gluten free pizza recipe.
I knew that my hubby wouldn’t love this pizza, he likes a simple ham and pineapple pizza but really a pizza that uses regular pizza sauce is his preference.
There is nothing wrong with that, and most of the time I follow that guide.
While, sneaking in things like baby kale, proscuitto and buffalo mozzarella.

When my kids were teenagers we used to eat at Boston Pizza a lot, one of the boys favorites was a thai chicken pizza.
I thought I’d experiment with those flavors while of course, making it gluten free.

The crust I used for this pizza was my gluten free quinoa pizza crust but what I think is also important is sharing my how-to techniques I use to make a great gluten free crust.
A pizza stone for me is a must. It’s not about buying the most expensive one, it is just about using a pizza stone.
You also must preheat your pizza stone in the oven before adding the crust.
That to me is extremely important and then thus leads to a great pizza crust.
So here is what I do for pizza crust:
I preheat the pizza stone in a 425 degree oven while I am making the dough.
I cut a large piece of parchment paper the size of the pizza stone and roll the dough on the parchment.
Remove stone from the oven and place the parchment/dough on the stone.
Put the stone back in the oven and bake for 8 minutes.
Carefully remove the parchment from under the semi-cooked dough.
Bake for another 3-5 minutes, depending on size of your pizza.
Remove pizza dough from oven and quickly spread sauce plus toppings/cheese on pizza and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.
Remove cooked pizza from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
When I follow these techniques I find now that I have the best gluten free pizza crust.
Now that you have the techniques for making a great gluten free crust here is the recipe for the Gluten-Free Thai BBQ Chicken Pizza.
Give it a try, I really enjoyed the twist on flavors.

Gluten Free Thai Green Curry Soup

Gluten Free Thai Green Curry Soup Recipe
It’s fall in Calgary! With our cooler weather I am craving warm soups and stews. Thus the slow cooker is getting used a lot. If you do not have a slow cooker I highly recommend you get one.
It is one of the simplest ways of cooking and for the gluten-free cook, it is a convenient way of eating a really good gluten free meal. Throw in some meat, vegetables, spices and broth and you can easily make soups or stews. All real ingredients with no hidden ingredients and no need for gluten. Vary the meats, veggies and spices and you’ll can switch things up easily.
It was my youngest sons birthday a couple of weeks ago and we all went out for Thai food. I was so impressed with the restaurant that I decided to make my own Thai curry soup the next day. I checked at my local Safeway stores Asian section and found they carried Home Gourmet spice paste for Thai green curry. It is gluten free and I thought it would make an easy slow cooker meal.
Most of my spice collection is packed up so I was looking for packaged spice mix that I could use.
I also wanted to switch this Thai recipe up and use kale in it. Kale is such a nutritious vegetable that I like to find ways of using it in my cooking. Kale stays fairly crunchy even when cooked, so it was a great choice in the slow cooker.

  2. Add the chopped peppers, garlic and the rest of the ingredients except the cornstarch and 2 Tbsp water to a saucepan.

In my gluten-free recipe I used monkfruit sweetener to cut back on the sugar in the sauce, but feel free to use white sugar if you want. I also like my sauce to not to be too thick, but again add more cornstarch if you want a thicker sweet chili sauce.
