This satisfying recipe features a traditional “stand-and-stir” style risotto complemented by a delicious blend of crisp-tender sautéed vegetables. Here, a mix of onion, peas, carrots, asparagus, yellow squash, and zucchini add an appealing pop of color, texture, and flavor to a delicious base of creamy risotto.
This quick and easy Greek dip is a delicious snack or appetizer when served with crunchy vegetables and/or warm gluten-free pita bread. It also wonderful as a spread on sandwiches or over roasted potatoes for a decadent treat.
Although it is very easy to roast your own red peppers, you can save some time by using the jarred variety instead.
Kitchen Notes: Feta is easier to process at room temperature, so remove it from the refrigerator when the peppers go into the oven.
To remove the blackened skin from the roasted peppers, some suggest placing the peppers into a plastic freezer bag. However, some plastic bags can melt from the high temperature. Instead, try placing the hot peppers right out of the oven in a heat-safe bowl, then cover it tightly with foil or a plate to seal in the steam.
Traditional crepes are a popular French dish made with a combination of flour and eggs. This extremely versatile, gluten-free version omits the flour and yields delicious low-carb wraps you can enjoy with your favorite sweet or savory fillings.
Savory combinations are a great way to enjoy leftovers the next day. You can use grilled steak, roasted chicken, and/or your favorite cheese and top with caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, and/or roasted veggies for a quick and delicious breakfast or lunch. Or, try drizzling fresh strawberries and bananas with a rich balsamic glaze and homemade maple whipped cream for a yummy, sweet treat.
Tip: For savory crepes, add salt, black pepper, garlic salt, and/or dried herbs to the batter before cooking. For sweet crepes, try adding some ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, and/or a drizzle of maple syrup, instead.
This satisfying, earthy soup is so warm and comforting. The wild rice is filling, while the finely minced and chopped vegetables give the soup a more consistent flavor throughout. What’s more, some of its “creaminess” comes from pureed cannellini beans, rather than a larger amount of high-fat dairy products.
