Hello! Welcome back to another installment of the Gluten Free Menu Swap! This week’s theme/ingredient is chia seeds and is being hosted by Gluten Free Smiles. I have never tried chia seeds before (as far as I know), so I will be interested to see what others use them for. I know some people use them as egg substitutes and in smoothies.
Here at the BRT household, we are trying to save a little extra money for some upcoming expenditures and so I have been trying to use up what’s in the cupboards and not buy any expensive or unusual ingredients – we’re keeping it real!
Teriyaki Tofu Stir Fry with Rice – using the San-J gluten free Teriyaki bottled sauce
Tacos and Slaw – I use a (gluten free) taco seasoning packet with two cans of beans, drained and rinsed, instead of ground beef, with all the fixins’
Pasta with Red Lentils and Ginger – from Vegetarian Planet – have a huge jar of red lentils in the pantry
Pizza – not sure what kind yet…homemade though
Green Chile Cheese Tamales with spanish rice – tamales are from our freezer
Be sure to head over to Gluten Free Smiles for the round-up of other Gluten Free Menus on Tuesday. As well, check out OrgJunkie for hundreds more; they are not gluten free, but most are easily adaptable!
Have a great week!
