Naturally GF Links Roundup – September

Fresh fig salad with raspberries, pistachio and goat cheese by Simone of Jungle Frog Cooking

 

Well hello Autumn!! If this month had a theme in the blogosphere, it’s potatoes and salads.  So many fantastic potato dishes, a sure sign that Fall is fast upon us… Though I don’t think the world is ready to say goodbye to Summer yet, as evident by so many gorgeous salads this month.  In fact, there were too many to choose from, so I’m going to link to a variety of lovely salads, several of which are still clinging on to the end of Summer.  And there are also some good classic stand-bys this month, as well as some ever decadent desserts – cannot forget dessert!

For those of you new to my roundup series, at the end of each month I collect links from across the blogosphere that showcase naturally gluten free recipes – that is, recipes that don’t require any substitutions or weird ingredients to be gluten free, they already are!  The particular bloggers featured may not necessarily be gluten free, but the recipes they have made that I linked to here are.

Why naturally gluten free? Because while it’s certainly fun to be able to recreate and eat some of our favorite conventional food without gluten, I find day to day GF living is often with naturally gluten free foods.  One, I am not rich enough to afford to use fancy GF flours in everything I do, and two, sometimes I just want a recipe I don’t have to think so hard about.  I noticed an interesting observation amongst the myriad comments on Shauna’s blog post asking about a book cover decision – that many people look to gluten free resources only for ways to replace conventional recipes they can no longer have.  On the other hand, while I admire those that bake GF often and with finesse (I am not a great baker, as I’m sure you have noticed on this blog), I regard replacing conventional treats with GF ones and divining my own GF flour mix as an adventure for occasions (even if the occasion is sometimes as simple as “it’s Friday”).

For my husband and me to make GF work – and by that I mean for it to work for us every day 365 days of the year no exceptions, I like to have new and innovative ideas for dishes that are already gluten free.  And I’m sure I can’t be the only one out there in the world who likes to know that there are tasty already GF recipes that require no extra effort.  I’ve talked about this before, and a lot of it I am sure depends on what level of competence you have in the kitchen (some people don’t need help finding naturally GF ideas), but I always find it refreshing to come across a new dish to add to my kitchen repertoire that is already awesomely gluten free.  And so I continue this series as much for me as for you – because it’s the delicious naturally gluten free recipes that are most likely to end up in my rotations of meal making :)

Looking to all those delicious entries it is clear that you can still eat delicious, even when gluten free but I’m still happy I don’t have to pay attention to that. Thanks for feuturing my recipe here Jenn!
