vegetable beef soup – a gluten free bowl of homemade comfort

Well, the holidays are over and if you’re like me, you’re now thinking of ways to shed those extra holiday pounds! Salads are a great way to do just that, but when you live as far north as we do, it’s very likely -20 degrees Celsius and snowing outside, and a cold salad is just not all that appealing. In January, when I’m staring down three or four more months of winter, I want something comforting – something that will warm me up from the inside – and something that will help me recover from my holiday food hangover! This vegetable soup certainly fits the bill. Great with or without beef, it’s hearty, delicious, low calorie, and comforting.

This soup freezes well so make extra and store it for quick lunches or dinners on those busy winter days. If you are like Geoff and prefer something more substantial, this recipe can easily be converted into a quick vegetable or hamburger stew that can be served on a bed of rice.

gluten free beef stew

This gluten free beef stew makes a hardy savory dinner and any leftovers can be frozen and reheated for busy weeknights. We think that the trick to an excellent stew is a lot of beef flavour – we are from Alberta after all! With a triple hit of beef stew meat, beef stock, and beef bouillon, this recipe fits the bill. Oh, and carrots – for some reason I love carrots in stew. gluten free beef stew in gf bread bowlLast year, in honour of St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to try making gluten free bread bowls.

easy crusty bread – sshhh, it’s gluten free

Yes, we said “easy” and “bread” and no, that’s not an oxymoron. Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle, this dairy free and gluten free crusty bread – an adaptation of no-knead bread – has a slight sourdough taste and the look and texture of an artisan loaf. It doesn’t keep for more than a few hours so the recipe produces a mini-loaf about the size of four dinner rolls. Scroll down for the crusty bread. gf and me 2013.
