Cooking with food intolerances

Curry Powder May 21, 2016

Are you allergic to turmeric? Me too. Unfortunately it caused inflammation in my esophagus, not something I was really fond of since it made swallowing kind of difficult. But I missed curry. So I asked a couple of people for their own blends, and experimented. This is what I came up with:

2 Tbs. ground cumin

1 tsp. garam masala

1 Tbs. coriander

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper

1/2 tsp. ground mustard powder

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/2 tsp. ground cardamon

1 curry leaf, ground

Put in a coffee grinder to blend flavors. Keep in airtight container.

Spinach Salad Dressing

My mother-in-law makes this dressing, which I modified a little due to my intolerance of garlic. Her spinach salad has spinach, diced orange and sliced strawberries on it. Yum!

1/4 c. sugar

1/4 tsp. paprika

2 Tbs. minced Vidalia onion

1/2 c. olive oil

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

pinch of salt

pinch of cloves

Combine all ingredients. Shake well.

 

 

Fish Fry Batter March 25, 2013

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.

Apple Crisp October 21, 2012

My grandmother’s recipe, with a few modifications…

4 c. peeled, sliced apples

1 c. gluten-free flour blend (I use Pamela’s gluten-free baking blend, but it has corn)

3/4 c. sugar

pinch of sea salt

1 tsp. baking powder (homemade corn-free if you can’t tolerate corn)

1 flax egg, chia egg, or regular chicken egg (I’ve done it all 3 ways)

1/2 c. canola or light olive oil

cinnamon sugar

Spread sliced apples in 8×11″ pan. Mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Add 1 egg (or flax or chia egg). Mix thoroughly. Add oil. Mix. Spoon mixture over apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 35-45 minutes.

 

Bernaise Sauce

1 Tbs. red wine vinegar

3 Tbs. red wine

2 Tbs. finely minced Vidalia onion

2 egg yolks

1 tsp. lemon juice

scant 1/4 c. original rice milk (or unsweetened coconut milk)

1/2 c. melted palm shortening (or bacon grease)

Simmer onions, herbs and spices in wine and vinegar until reduced by half. Turn down heat to low and whisk in egg yolks. Then add, alternating, rice milk and shortening until sauce is the right consistency. Serve warm over poached eggs.
