Gluten Free Green Thai Curry Soup

image

This comforting bowl of spicy cuddles is perfect for the cold and wet winter we are in just now. Here’s my secret recipe.

Ingredients

2 white onions (diced)
3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
1 inch squared of ginger (finely chopped)
100g of spring greens or pak choi (cut into strips)
1 red chilli (sliced into rings)
2 tbsp miso paste (check brand is gluten free)
2 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp rice vinegar
4 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp tamari sauce (gluten free soy sauce)
Vegetables and meat of your choice – I used chicken, peas, sweetcorn, green beans, sugar snap peas, carrot cubes and mushrooms.
Rice or rice noodles to serve if desired.

Method

1. Heat wok with a small amount of water (100mls approx). No l is used in this recipe as it gives the final dish a less appealing appearance.

2. Once the wok is heated and the water is beginning to bubble add everything except the meat and vegetables.

3. Allow sauce to reduce and combine

4. Add meat. Ensure every surface is sealed.

5. Add vegetables.

6. Add ½ pint of water per person.

7. Allow to boil until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

8. At this point it is your choice of accompaniment. Add rice noodles directly to the broth, ladle over rice in a bowl or simple have on its own.

9. Enjoy.

Day Zero Project – A Mind Focusing Task Orientated Goals Website

dayzerologo2014_280w

So, this is a bit of an odd post – I don’t usually give into gimmicky and fad sites. However!

I have started a profile over on DayZeroProject.com – I even paid for a Plus Account.

The Day Zero Project is essentially a list of goals on a site that you can use for literally anything; but their most popular one is the one I am focusing on at the minute personally and that is: 101 things is 1001 days.

I have already started some of my list! 🙂

I will admit it is very hard to maintain (especially if you are me and you get scared even when the postman comes to the door with something nice. I hope I see it thorough to the end then I can say I have accomplished something.

I would highly recommend the site thoroughly to everyone and anyone.

Gluten Free Monthly Box Service Review – Snackly

For a few months I have had monthly Snackly boxes delivered. It’s a selection box of about 6 gluten free treats from various suppliers to try. I have been very impressed so far with the quality and value for money of them. Here are some photos of the boxes I have recieved:

As you can see the selection is awesome, they come once a month and they are small snacks and treats. Something I have found lacking in an easy available form since becoming gluten free.

Also the kind folks at snackly have given me a money off code for all my followers! If you use the code GLUTENFREEGIRLIE it will entitle you to 50p off your first box!

Visit snackly.co.uk to order.

Just a quick disclaimer – I haven’t been endorsed in an any way by Snackly. I genuinely think that this is a fab product for newbie and veteran gluten free people alike.

Super Healthy Homemade Gluten Free Thai Curry Recipe

This curry is filling, tasty, healthy and gluten free.

Ingredients:

3 red onions sliced

3 cloves of garlic crushed and chopped

2 tbsp minced ginger

200g roughly chopped spinach

1 tbsp gluten free soy sauce (I use meridian tamari gluten free soy sauce)

2 tbsp rice wine vinegar

500ml coconut milk (I use Koko coconut milk)

1 tbsp red thai curry paste (I use Mae Ploy)

Rice (or rice noodles if you prefer)

Your main ingredient – I usually make mine with fish and shellfish, but you can use vegetables or meat.

  1. Soften the garlic and onions in a hot walk.
  2. Add the ginger, soy sauce, paste and rice wine vinegar and spinach.
  3. Blend the ingredients until well mixed.
  4. Add the star of the show – in my case the shellfish.
  5. Finally add the coconut milk and cooked rice.
  6. Serve and enjoy.

The Ultimate Homemade Gluten Free Spicy Beef Burgers Recipe

These burgers are AMAZING. It’s my better half’s recipe and he is a creative genius when it comes to meat. Here is the recipe!

Ingredients

400g of chorizo chopped finely – be sure to choose gluten free!

A couple of thin slices of chorizo as garnish

1 finely diced onion

9 hot chillies

800g lean beef mince

2 tsp paprika

1 egg

2 Juvela white rolls to serve

Salad to serve

“very lazy” red onion marmalade – it is made coeliac friendly!

Method

1. Smoosh (technical term meaning use your hands) the mince, onion, chillies, paprika and egg together.

2, Form reasonable sized pate’s.

3, Fry in olive oil till cooked through.

4, Serve in the Juvela white rolls with the chorizo slices, salad, red onion relish and whatever else you fancy – the ones above had melted goats cheese on them!

The Juvela rolls are the best gluten free buns I have had in a while – very bread like, which is suprising as I adore bread and had yet to find a roll that wasn’t tastless or just plain un-roll like. I highly recommend Juvela rolls for your summer BBQ.

If you make these burgers – do let me know using #glutenfreegirlie.com

Supermarket Available Gluten Free Porridge – A Review

So, over the last few months I have tried all of the gluten free porridge I can get my hands on – to see if I can find one that is nice. However, I have now worked out that I am intolerant to oats unfortunately. However, if you are a luck person I have popped this review up for others to use. So, here we go.

Nairn’s Gluten Free Instant Porridge

8 Pack – £3 – Available in ASDA, Ocado and Waitrose.

This porridge was nice, creamy and thick – a little too fine for me as I was a fan of barely processed porridge before.

Taste: 3.5/5

Texture: 2/5

Price: 3/5

Perkier Gluten Free Porridge Pot – Fruity Berry

One – £1.50 – Available in Tesco

This porridge was awesome – really tasty and full of flavour.

Taste: 4/5

Texture: 3.5/5

Price: 2/5

Tesco’s Free From Quick Cook Oat Sachets Variety Pack

6 Pack – £2 – 2 x Original, 2 x Golden Syrup & 2 x Apple and Cinnamon.

These sachets are a bit more expensive and not as tasty an oat base for the flavours as others I have tried. The apple and cinnamon had bits of actual apple in it and was very tasty, the golden syrup was average and I literally still have one of the original ones as they weren’t the best.

Taste: 2.5/5

Texture: 2/5

Price: 1.5/5

ASDA’s Free From Quick Cook Oat Sachets Golden Syrup Pack

8 Pack – £2 – Available in ASDA.

This one is my favourite on out of all I tried – sweet but not overly, lovely texture like “real” porridge – I have bought this over and over again.

Taste: 4.5/5

Texture: 4/5

Price: 5/5

So there you have it – my gluten free oats review. If I have missed any – I am sorry, but I am not able to continue this experiment unfortunately.

Dearest oats – I will miss you.

Thank you for reading!
