Probably the yummyist pizza I have ever eaten! Gluten or not, this one rocks. Thanks to my bro-in-law in Colorado for tweaking my recipe and making it rock. :)
1 1/2 cup rice flour
1 1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup warm water
1/3 to 1/2 cup milk (if dough is still thick at 1/3 cup, add more milk until easy to stir)
1 to 2 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. yeast
Mix the wet and dry separately then add together. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 degrees. A 14 inch pizza stone works really well so I pop that in the oven as it preheats.
Dough should be a the consistency of peanut butter, so if it's too thick just add a little more milk. It should stir easily with a fork.
Dust the hot pizza stone with flour (a cookie sheet will work too) then using a wet fork flatten dough onto the stone.
Top with pizza sauce (I use spaghetti sauce) :) then mozzarella cheese, onions, peppers, pepperoni, olives...whatever you love!
Bake 425 for 30 minutes. Yummy!!!!!!
Chicken or Shrimp Teriyaki Stir-Fry
1/2 cup water
1/2 gluten free soy sauce
1 clove minced garlic
1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
1/4 cup brown sugar (or honey)
2 tbsp cornstarch
Stir fry:1-2 chicken breasts or shrimp (chop and stir fry separately, then add to veggies)
2 tbsp oil
head of broccoli
3-4 large chopped carrots
1/2 chopped onion
3-4 stalks celery
1/2 chopped green pepper
1 small can of drained water chestnuts
And the real yummy part...a big handful of cashews (add last, only need to cook a few minutes to soften)
Once the veggies are all cooked and tender, add the sauce and cook for a few minutes (a must as it will significantly thicken over heat). Serve over jasmine rice. Oh so good.
Asian Brocolli Noodles~
In a small bowl prepare sauce:
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp. peeled, fresh minced ginger
2 tbsp. peanut butter
1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce
1 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp. water
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
In a large skillet add:
1-2 chopped chicken breasts, saute in oil. When browned add:
1 head, chopped broccoli
2-3 chopped carrots
2-3 chopped celery stalks
1-2 tbsp. oil
Cover and allow veggies to cook for several minutes
Separately cook 8 oz. thin, rice noodles. Drain and rinse with cold water. Then add to cooked veggies.
Lastly, add peanut sauce to the veggies/noodles. Cook for several minutes more and serve hot.
Thai Coconut Curry~
3-4 medium sized, chopped red potatoes (or 2 red potatoes and 2 sweet potatoes are good too if you prefer a kick of sweet)
1 can coconut milk
1 chopped and cooked chicken breast (cook separately)
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 chopped onion
2 tbsp. fresh ginger diced
3-4 cloves minced garlic
handful of chopped cilantro
1/2 diced jalapeno- I never use the seeds, too spicy
1 tsp curry powder
2 tbsp. canola oil
a couple handfuls of spinach or broccoli- whatever you prefer, I like spinach
salt & pepper
Cook the potatoes first until tender. I cook them in just enough water to simmer continually and not burn the bottom of the pan~ let the water burn off. Next add the coconut milk, chicken and everything else. Simmer for 5 minutes or so until onions are tender and everything has a chance to blend together. Serve it over jasmine rice, I also love it with pineapple chunks. One of our absolute favorites... :)
Chop and brown 1-2 chicken breasts, saute in oil or a little white wine. Set aside.
Separately and in a large pot simmer:
2 tbsp olive oil
4-6 chopped green onions OR 1/2 regular onion
2 minced garlic cloves
Stir 2-3 minutes then add:
1 can chicken broth (15 oz. size)
1 cup rice
16 oz. salsa
1 cup water
Add above chicken breasts
Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer. Stir every 10 minutes for 40 minutes or until rice has absorbed all the water. When done, transfer to a 9x9 square dish and top with mozzarella cheese, chopped avocado and fresh tomatoes. Serve with tortilla chips. This has been a favorite of my family's for YEARS! You will love it!! :)
Chicken & Veggie Enchiladas~
In a medium sized pot prepare sauce (cream of chicken soup):
2 tbsp. oil or butter
4 tbsp. flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
Once sauce has thickened add:
1 cup sour cream (light works fine but don't use fat free. Bleh.)
1/2 chopped onion
1 chopped medium sized zucchini
1 cup corn
1 -2 cups fresh or frozen spinach
1/2 finely chopped jalapeno
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup salsa
1 tsp. ground coriander
Separately, chop and saute 2 chicken breasts in oil and a little water. Add to sauce mix.
Lastly, grease a 9x13 pan. Trader Joes sells excellent brown rice tortilla but corn work alright. Run 6-8 tortillas under water and microwave for 1 minutes to increase "flexibility". Then dish sauce mix into tortillas, one at a time and wrap around.(I use a slotted spoon and use the chunky part for tortillas). Then using the remaining sauce, pour onto the top of wrapped tortillas. If they break, don't worry, they turn out great anyway.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Top with chopped tomatoes and green onion. Serve with tortilla chips. Ohhhhh...this is a good one!! :)
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup pine nuts (or any nuts you have on hand will work)
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/4 cup water
1-2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Boil 16 oz. of spaghetti noodles or fettuccine noodles separately. Drain.
Also separately, chop and saute 1-2 chicken breasts.
I put the first 7 ingredients above, all EXCEPT the cheese into my magic bullet blender. If you have a food processor or blender that will work great. After blended, in a large bowl, mix with cooked pasta, chicken and finally mix in Parmesan cheese. Add more salt if needed. Sprinkle even a little more cheese on top if desired.
Salmon with Ginger-Soy Butter~
2 tbsp room temperature butter
½ tbsp chopped chives
1-2 tbsp soy sauce
½ tbsp ground ginger
Juice of 1 lemon
1 lb. salmon
Combine everything except the salmon in a bowl and mix until fully blended.
Cook the salmon as you like. I like to broil it on 375 for 15 minutes or so, but grilling works great as well. The recipe calls to fry it, whatever you prefer. Anyway, it doesn't matter as the sauce is the kicker. So just cook the fish however you like and pour this delicious sauce on top, which should begin to melt on contact. So simple and so scrumptious!!
