    With this easy dish we originally had the black bean chili over rice for dinner one nite.  Then the next day we turned it into a wrap style or quesadilla - even tastier!  The chili recipe with rice made plenty with leftovers to have wraps or quesadilla's for a few lunches - a quick easy ...

  • THAI CHICKEN VEGGIE RICE BOWL - GLUTEN FREETHAI CHICKEN VEGGIE RICE BOWL - GLUTEN FREE
    Each week we try to change things up with our dinner meals for added variety, and also based on what we have on hand.  With this recipe, I scouted out a few other Thai chicken recipes to come up with this one. This recipe far far exceeded my expectations...it was quick to make, came together easily ...

      This dish was inspired by a few different recipes, but mostly for comfort food made easy...and gluten free.  Here the pasta was Tinkyada Pasta shells - something I have not seen in a very long long time, so we scooped up a couple of packages as it really is a nice pasta for many dishes ...
  • CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP: CHICKEN AND RICE CREAMY MUSHROOM BAKECREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP:  CHICKEN AND RICE CREAMY MUSHROOM BAKE
    (UPDATE:)  I made a new discovery with this cream of mushroom soup recipe.  Instead of using Sweet Rice Flour for the roux, I used Potato Starch - which gave a much finer texture overall, so will use this from now on.  Also, it freezes nicer too.  Yes, once you pour it into a pan to ...
  • CHICKEN SCHNITZEL IN MARINARACHICKEN SCHNITZEL IN MARINARA
    That is a strange title yes?  Combining German and Italian?  I am here to tell you it was a match made in heaven!  How this recipe came about, was due to cleaning out the freezer and a desire to use up anything that was leftover. A few years ago, I posted a recipe on Chicken Schnitzel.  ...

    Here we have another quick easy one pot meal.  Seem to be heading in that direction these days - along with anything curry! On that note, here is some info.  We used a Madras Curry Powder blend in this recipe which certainly carries a bit of heat.  If you like heat, then by all means add ...
  • VEGGIE AND CHEESE QUESADILLASVEGGIE AND CHEESE QUESADILLAS
    This is a quick and easy dinner/lunch to make.  What helps make it quick and easy is, we used canned gluten free re fried beans, frozen butternut squash and fresh spinach. (you could certainly use fresh chopped butternut squash in this dish) By the way, I recently learned you can easily freeze fresh butternut squash.  ...
  • BEEF GOULASHBEEF GOULASH
    This is not your typical traditional Goulash.  When we were kids/teenagers, our brother-in-law used to make his version of Hamburger Goulash for us which we loved.  His was made with canned vegetable and tomato soups. In trying to recreate this dish without the canned soups, I think it is very close in flavor to his and ...

  • CREAMY POLENTA BOWL WITH SUMMER VEGTABLES AND PESTOCREAMY POLENTA BOWL WITH SUMMER VEGTABLES AND PESTO
    With all of the lovely summer vegetables available this was a simple tasty dish.  It is a replica - sort of, of a recipe I saw somewhere but seem to have lost.  So, it took some " brain storming" with my not so great memory, some liberty with ingredients and luckily it turned out delicious.  ...
  • MEATLOAF WITH GRAVY!MEATLOAF WITH GRAVY!
    Who knew meatloaf gravy could taste soooo good?  I have been craving meatloaf for days now.  We have had the craziest weather - at one point we were sitting at 29 degrees Celsius, out came all of our fans.  Then it dropped back down to 11 - 13 degrees!  So time for meatloaf.  There are ...
  • CHICKEN IN A CREAMY MUSHROOM DIJON SAGE SAUCECHICKEN IN A CREAMY MUSHROOM DIJON SAGE SAUCE
    Here is another chicken recipe from yesteryear.  I have not thought about this recipe in what feels like 100 years!  When you have to give up any dairy that contains lactose it is surprising how many recipes go by the wayside.   Now we can actually buy Lactose Free Cream, and have been able to ...
  • CHICKEN VEGETABLE RICE CASSEROLECHICKEN VEGETABLE RICE CASSEROLE
    There is something about the combination of chicken, rice, mushrooms and broccoli in a casserole that is pure comfort food.  Back in the day, we used to make the old recipe that used canned cream of mushroom soup for chicken and rice casserole.   I have yet to find a good store bought dairy free, gluten ...
  • ITALIAN POLENTA WITH MARINARA ASPARAGUS AND GOAT CHEESEITALIAN POLENTA WITH MARINARA ASPARAGUS AND GOAT CHEESE
    Oh how I love Italian Food. What I love is, Italians keep their food simple, without any fuss or complex ingredients, always using fresh ingredients and as a result their food is always delicious.  Jamie Oliver once said he was born in the wrong country....I very much think the same thing! This recipe was quick, easy, ...

    This is another salmon dish but had to share as it was such a super easy lunch/dinner to make, I can't believe not having made it before now.  Plus, it was tasty and very economical.  At some point during the week we always end up with leftover potatoes in the fridge - such a great ...

    Where has the time gone? I have just realized Gluten Free Delightfully Delicious is soon to be 8 years old! I have not been posting as many new recipes as I used to as life has taken many a different turn in my neck of the woods.  Having said that, I will continue to post ...
  • CURRIED MUNG BEAN VEGETABLE RICE DISHCURRIED MUNG BEAN VEGETABLE RICE DISH
    This recipe is similar to my Mung Bean Stew - with a few changes/additions.  It is said that mung beans are a legume that are heart healthy, they help to reduce cholesterol, are the least gas forming of all legumes, and they also assist in improving/balancing digestion.  It is my goal/hope for 2018 to eat ...
  • CROCK POT WILD RICE CHICKEN SOUPCROCK POT WILD RICE CHICKEN SOUP
    If you read my blog you will know that while I love the idea and convenience of a crock pot/slow cooker - in terms of success we have really had minimal results - just the odd recipe turns out great.  Usually, we find the dish is lacking in flavor, and any meat is over cooked. ...
  • GREEK BAKED ZITIGREEK BAKED ZITI
    While this recipe was a bit time consuming to make - it was worth the effort.  It has been non stop raining in our area which always makes me want comfort food - with a roaring fire in the fire place blazing away to bring in some added warmth and coziness to our dreary damp ...
  • CREAMY TARRAGON SHRIMP AND LEEKS WITH LEMON RICECREAMY TARRAGON SHRIMP AND LEEKS WITH LEMON RICE
    When dining alone I always gravitate towards seafood - always.  DH is not a seafood lover at all - he will eat fish:  salmon, halibut, cod and snapper but that is about it. No shell fish what so ever.  I suppose I could cook more seafood than I do - but honestly I'm too lazy ...
  • ASPARAGUS BACON FRITTATA WITH A POTATO CRUSTASPARAGUS BACON FRITTATA WITH A POTATO CRUST
    We have had an abundance of fresh organic asparagus and fresh eggs - time to make a frittata - something we all love in this household, and yet something I tend to forget to make.  Not sure why that is, but this was a lovely reminder to make a frittata more frequently. 3 cups shredded yukon ...
