I’ve been perusing quite a few gluten-free blogs lately, trying to come up with new food ideas. My repertoire of recipes has become quite stale. After all, how many ways can you saute zucchini before it just gets boring?
A blog that I’ve stumbled upon and become enamored with is Book of Yum, written by Seamaiden. Sea is a wonderful writer and talented cook, and is lucky in the fact that she has been gluten-free from the age of three! (No bad gluten habits to unlearn.) Her approach to food is “gluten-free, vegetarian, and international”, and I find her blog to be absolutely drool-worthy. My only issue with her is that she’s able to eat all sorts of wonderful foods that I am not! But I’m trying to keep my inner little green monster in check. I do admire that she is sensitive to others’ food issues, and she even has an ongoing series on soy-free cooking. Yay!
So while working my way through the Book of Yum archives, I’ve come across a recipe that might be adapted to my dietary restrictions. Check out her Baked Indian Samosa Recipes. This reminds me of the rotis we ate on a trip to Barbados (pre gluten-free), and also brings up Midwestern memories of runzas, fleischkuechle, pastiess, and pirogi. Umm, warm dough surrounding a savory filling, what could be better on a crisp (or steamy) fall evening? I’m thinking I can make these with a beef and veggie filling. And they can be frozen – how’s that for convenience?
Please go to Book of Yum and check out Sea’s creations. I’m warning you though, if you aren’t hungry when you start reading, you will be by the time you stop…
Thank you, Sea, for the inspiration!
