Pumpkin “Alfredo” Sauce (GF/DF/V)
It’s hard to believe this decadent, velvety “alfredo” sauce is dairy-free and packed with protein, fiber, and anti-inflammatory ingredients, but sometimes miracles do happen! The pumpkin and turmeric give the sauce its bright, cheerful color, while also adding beta carotene and … Continue reading
Pão (de Queijo) Dairy-Free Variations Part I: The Savory (GF/DF)
I am obsessed with Pão de Queijo, small Brazilian cheese bread puffs which are traditionally made with gluten-free cassava (a.k.a. manioc, a.k.a tapioca) flour. I find gluten-free “bread” to be something of an oxymoron, so finding a traditional, bread-like recipe … Continue reading
Creamy Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup (Gluten and Dairy Free)
The Midwestern Gentleman used to have an amazing recipe (or so he claims) for a creamy chicken and wild rice soup. He has been talking about this soup, longing for it, searching for a comparable recipe, for the past three … Continue reading

Culinary Chameleon: Anti-Inflammatory Pesto
As I mentioned in a recent post, one of the key principles of an anti-inflammatory diet is to choose foods that are as nutrient-dense as possible. That’s what makes homemade pesto such a great addition to an anti-inflammatory diet: it … Continue reading
Sweet and Smoky Tomato Bisque (GF/DF/V)
This dairy-free, creamy tomato soup makes an easy and nutritious weeknight dinner when paired with a fresh salad and whole grain (and gluten-free, in my case) bread or crackers. I like to pack it into mason jars to take to … Continue reading
Since our visit to Trinidad and Tobago in January, coocoo now claims a regular spot in our menu rotation. This Trini version of polenta is traditionally served as a starchy side with fish. I enjoyed it in Tobago as a … Continue reading
Ginger-Madeira Poached Chicken Thighs (GF/DF)
I’ve been making a variation of this tender, flavorful chicken since I was a child; it is one of the first entrees I ever learned to cook by myself. Made with organic, free range, antibiotic and hormone-free chicken, it is … Continue reading

In this dish, the smoky roasted red pepper, the sharp resiny bite of rosemary, the sour tang of lemon, and the sticky sweetness of dates meld into a harmonious dance of flavors that will make you forget you’re eating a … Continue reading
