I wasn’t sure this recipe was going to work without dairy milk so I put off trying it for years. I’m so happy that I decided to make it last week. My husband thought it was just as good as the original – dairy/gluten filled soup!

4 slices bacon, cut up into small pieces

2-3 Tbs. minced Vidalia onion

1 celery rib, thinly sliced

3 medium red potatoes, cubed

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. sugar

1 1/2 c. chicken broth

1/3 c. gluten-free flour blend (I used Pamela’s GF bread mix)

2 1/2 c. coconut milk

1 c. frozen peas

In large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towel. Keeping the heat around medium, add onion and celery to the pot (with the leftover bacon grease) and saute until tender. Add broth, potatoes, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Combine gluten-free flour and 1/2 cup of the coconut milk, stirring until smooth; then gradually stir it into the soup. Bring to a boil, cooking and stirring for 2 minutes. Stir in peas, and remaining coconut milk, and heat all the way through.

 

Fish Fry Batter

I have no idea if this will work the same thing with darker buckwheat flour. I love the light buckwheat flour from Bouchard Family Farms.

1/2 c. light buckwheat flour

1/2 c. tapioca starch

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

6 oz. seltzer

Mix all ingredients together. Let stand for 5 minutes. Mix again. Coat fish and fry. Drain on paper towels. I also use this coating for onion rings, and add a little paprika to the mix. My kids love it.

 

Orange Curried Chicken and Rice

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut up

2 tsp. curry powder

2 Tbs. olive oil

2 Tbs. chopped Vidalia onion

2 c. chicken broth

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 c. orange juice

1/2 c. long grain rice

salt and pepper to taste

Saute chicken, garlic, and onion until chicken is browned and onion and garlic are soft. Add broth, orange juice, and seasonings. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Add rice, turn down to low, and cover. Cook abot 25 minutes, until rice is soft and most liquid is absorbed.
