Recipes for Enjoying Gluten Free Food

Omit and substitute! That's how recipes should be written. Please don't ever get so hung up on published recipes that you forget you can omit and substitute.

—Jeff Smith (The Frugal Gourmet)

Some of the recipes in this chapter are my personal favorites. They use simple ingredients, are easy to prepare, and pack the nutritional punch that will keep you healthy on a gluten-free diet. Many of these recipes were contributed by colleagues of mine, including dietitians, and national support group leaders who specialize in celiac disease and the gluten-free diet. Some of these recipes were contributed by mothers who cook for children with celiac disease and friends who have cooked gluten-free meals for me. Here's to healthful and delicious gluten-free eating!

Ingredients such as garbanzo bean flour, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, teff, sorghum, wild rice, and bean flours called for in some of these recipes may be available in your local natural-foods store. If not, they may be ordered from several companies. Please see Appendix C for mail-order sources.
