Gluten-Free Entertaining

March 24, 2015

Tips on Changing Recipes to Gluten-Free file6131310915564

Planning a get-together with family, friends and co-workers with dietary concerns can be a stressful proposition, however if it’s ensuring a gluten-free gathering, you are in luck. With so many new products on the market – and with a little tweaking – you will find it’s easy to keep your favorite party foods on the menu. The most important issue is to ensure a wheat-free zone for guests. Even a little gluten in food can cause serious distress for someone with celiac disease or discomfort for those suffering non-celiac gluten insensitivity. Many wheat flour-based products can be swapped out for non-gluten flours such as almond, rice, or corn. If you are not sure if a product is gluten-free, it’s best to check the label or go online and do a quick search. You don’t have to sacrifice flavor to ensure a safe, gluten-free party with great food. Your guests without gluten concerns will never even know. Read more…

What To Do With Tofu?

March 19, 2015

Tofu Recipes That Everybody Will Lovetofu_and_veggies

Are you looking for some new ideas for dinner and ready to try some new food items? Great. We have some ideas and recipes to share with you for tofu. Yep. That silky cube of white bean curd that confuses so many people. On its own, it is bland. But, what is so wonderful about tofu is its versatility and ability to take on just about any flavor. Call it a chameleon of the kitchen. You don’t have be a vegetarian to enjoy this high protein meat alternative.

There Are Even Tofu Noodles

In fact, tofu comes in more than a block. You can also find it in pasta form. CobornsDelivers now carries tofu shirataki, tofu noodles that have become hugely popular, especially for those looking for low-carb, gluten-free pasta alternatives.

Some call tofu shirataki the healthy noodle. It is low-carb, low-calories, no cholesterol, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan. It also tastes great. Tofu itself is a good source of protein, iron, magnesium, calcium, and manganese. You can read more on tofu and nutrition.

Stir-Fry Vegetable with Shirataki Tofu Noodles

Combine oil and soy sauce in wok or frying pan with sides and preheat over medium heat. Prepare shirataki noodles per package directions. Add noodles and vegetables to wok or frying pan; stir fry until mixture is heated through but vegetables are still crispy. Add bamboo shoots and shiitake mushrooms; heat through. Serve immediately.

Cooking Tofu Tip: Even extra firm tofu contains a good amount of water, so you’ll want to press as much moisture out. Open and drain the tofu, wrap in paper towels, place on a plate, and put another plate on top. Put something heavy on the top plate for about ten minutes.

Recipes and Uses for Coconut Oilhalf_coconut

Once upon a time, back in 1994, coconut oil was demonized as being high in saturated fat and dangerous. You may remember the hullabaloo about theater popcorn, which uses a lot of coconut oil.
