about as fatale as an after dinner mint..

« on: March 05, 2008 10:00:33 AM »

I became a vegetarian four years ago, and was diagnosed as a coeliac about a year ago.
For those of you who don't know, a coeliac is basically someone who is allergic to gluten. Gluten is found in wheat (including Kamut and spelt), barley, rye and oats.
I don't eat any form of meat, fish included, and I try to avoid eating a lot of egg..But I do drink milk, in fact it may be the only thing keeping me alive!

Last night I realised that i have eaten gluten free pasta with pesto five days running... I NEED HELP!

If anyone knows any delicious gluten free veggie recipes PLEASE let me know. Because I'm thinking hard and all I'm coming up with for dinner is... gluten free pasta with pesto.   Undecided

Some additional info: they don't have to be specifically gluten free if that makes sense, as in they can just be really yummy veggie curries that just happen not to have gluten...
And if no deadly veggie meals spring to mind I'm pretty handy with quorn substitute, so lay that on me too!

Anything is welcome!!

Vegetarian chili (a favorite of mine)
Grilled/fried/stir fried tofu with a side of steamed veggies and rice
Veggie Shepard's Pie
Lots and lots of Asian food, just make sure if you do use noodles, that you use the rice sticks/cellophane noodles
Tofu, veggies, and rice with peanut sauce
Curries
Quinoa is a grain from South America that I think celiacs can eat (my roomie in college was gluten intolerant)
Umm, and I assume most soups you could eat no problem too.

You can find all sorts of awesome recipes online and I was at the bookstore last night (a Barnes and Noble) and in the vegetarian cookbook section, I noticed a gluten free vegetarian cookbook.  I don't remember the name, but maybe you could keep an eye out for it.

Hi,

Here is an extensive list of gluten-free vegan recipes. This site focuses on recipes with almost no fat, but you can saute in oil, add cheese, use dairy milk instead soy milk, etc.

i would suggest soups as the person above me did and in order to make sure you get full (as most of us would off of gluten laden carbs) try eating lots of protein in your meals and not having just like.. a salad. i would suggest things like baked tofu or tofu scrambles for breakfast. also, you can make veggie burgers and just sub out the bread crumbs in most recipes for gluten free ones or just use a lot of rice and expect it to kind of crumble and scramble up (which might even be really really good, who knows).

also any recipe which uses tempeh as its protein source would be fine.

my friend is a vegetarian and her dad is a celiac so she always looks for recipes that they can enjoy together and i know she's found some really good cook books at our local library (which is TINY) so i'm sure if you check out a library or do an amazon search or something you could come up with some titles to check out. good luck Grin

Try some Asian dishes since many Asian dishes don't use milk, eggs, or things that contain gluten. Try cooking white rice with veggies with a sweet sauce. That always works for me (BTW, I'm a vegan and I don't like bread or pasta that much...)

o wow! thanks guys for such fast responses!  Kiss

The list of recipes was great, things that were obvious (like chili!) that I just hadn't thought of.. and some more interesting ones! I really need to learn how to cook tofu. I've tried twice and both time it just disintegrated into a slimy mess..

The list of recipes are amazing! I had no idea that they made cook books for coeliac vegetarians, even though it stands to reason that they should, because I have a diabetic vegetarian cookbook. I don't know why I have that...

I had a similar experience with tempeh as I had with tofu, my sister made a big deal about it so we bought loads, and then when she was away I tried to cook it and it just like, didn't work... and what little did work tasted really odd...

I don't doubt that both tempeh and tofu can be cooked to perfection and made taste gorgeous but I just can't do it!

And I love Asian food! My sister works at an authentic Indian take away, and the food is just incredable because it's made properly, not all full of preservatives and additives. mmmmmmm  Tongue

Tofu does take some time to learn to cook and (at least for me) took awhile to appreciate the texture and taste, but now I love it.
A couple of tofu tips:
If you don't want it to fall apart, buy the extra firm tofu.
For a meatier texture, freeze the package of tofu, thaw it out and press out as much liquid as you can.
For stir fries and other veggie/tofu mix, I ALWAYS cook the tofu first in oil at a highish temperature to brown the tofu and give it a little texture, then add the veggies.

I checked it out and the book is called "Gluten Free Vegetarian" by Donna Klein. She's an excellent author, I have two of hers (the italian and mediterranean ones) and i love them both. i check this one out from the library though and as i try it, i'll let you know how it is Smiley
