Naturally Gluten Free Links – Roundup #1

by Jenn on January 27, 2012

in Gluten Free,Naturally GF Links

Whenever anyone asks me for advice about going gluten free, the first thing I tell them is to look for naturally gluten free dishes that don’t require any alterations at all. You know, the ones that don’t have lists of a dozen different flours in them and other ingredients that the average person might consider a little “strange” if they are not the most familiar with gluten free cooking and baking. I also like to stress cooking naturally gluten free foods because I think it’s important to recognize that gluten free doesn’t have to be limiting. Yes, making pizza from scratch and baking cupcakes might get a bit trickier, but it’s important not to stress about “losing” one’s favorite foods in exactly the way they are remembered. And there are just so many wonderfully flavorful and exciting foods that already are totally gluten free. While I get just as excited as the next person about a successful recipe conversion to GF, I think we should also be excited about those dishes that require no converting at all.

So this year, I’ve been thinking about how many great naturally gluten free recipes get put out into the blogosphere all the time, and how they should be celebrated. Starting this month, I am keeping a running list of naturally gluten free recipes I come across that I think would be great to recognize – they may come from a gluten free blog, they may not – because many people already eat and make naturally gluten free dishes. I think this will be a new monthly feature here on Jenn Cuisine, to highlight some great looking naturally gluten free dishes.

I actually came across dozens of lovely looking naturally GF recipes this month in my reader, and on Facebook and Twitter etc., but today I am just sharing my favorites that I saw this month (most were published this month, some I just happened to come across this month that were published earlier) – as you can see that lentils and curry flavors were rather popular :)

Salads -

Soups -

Veggies -

Fish and Meats - 

Desserts -

I hope to continue this as a regular feature on Jenn Cuisine, and help share some naturally gluten free recipe love!

*Note – as always, make sure to read all labels for all ingredients you use if you need to be gluten free or have any food allergies/restrictions/sensitivities.
