Gluten free meals

Post them up and every so often I'll snaffle them and put them on the blog, if that's okay? It'll save you the trouble of emailing them to me. (It will mean you lose out on our charming personal interaction but I sense you can live with that.)

Gluten free meals

Hit me with ideas please! It shouldn't be this hard but my brain has had it :wink:

I'm after meals that are naturally gluten free not using substitutes, so far have got rice with Chinese/curry/stroganoff, baked potatoes, fish & potatoes, eggs & chips, roast dinner/stew type meals. We try to eat a few veggie meals a week too & most of what I can come up with is meat!!

This is one of our favourites and works brilliantly in the slow cooker, I just leave out the fresh chillies and both girls seem to like it :)

There's also a gluten free section in the recipes index which would definitely be worth a look :)

Right, I'll try again! If you Google "smitten kroom three bean chilli" it's naturally gluten free, veggie and is a great slow cooker recipe (I just leave out the fresh chilli and the small people both love it!)
There's also a gluten free section in the recip index which might be worth checking out for inspiration?

Lentil bolognese is another one we have a lot with mash or rice :)

Polenta is a super quick alternative to rice or GF pasta and delicious with stews or bolognaise sauce. My DS loves it and I usually chill the leftovers and cut into squares then either bake or pan fry til crispy. Yum!

Shepherds pie. Or any other pie filling with potato/ sweet potato on top! Mmm, pie.
Gnocchi, frittata, risotto.

I like the sound of slow cooker 3 bean chilli, thanks treek.

My big 2 won't eat bean chilli but I might do it for dh & I! Have some gluten free flour now so gnocchi is a good idea, the children love it!

Mummac how do you cook polenta? Is it just a case of absorbing the water like cous cous?

I make it up using the measurements on the pack, usually about 3 parts water to one part polenta. You boil the water in a saucepan, then add the polenta WHILE STIRRING. That part is really important, don't just dump it in then stir, or you will end up with a pot of lumpy gloop! Stir it over heat for a couple of minutes (I get the instant one, I think it takes 2/3mins) until it is smooth and thick. Then I add a tablespoon of butter, half a cup of milk and some grated Parmesan and serve with a nice, hearty stew. If you have left overs, put it in a container immediately as it sets and is rather tricky to get out of the saucepan. Learned that the hard way... :D
