Wild Rice and Mushroom Pilaf

wild rice pilaf by leslie cerier

Earthy flavored, gluten-free wild rice combines beautifully with aromatic vegetables and garlic for a pilaf that can also be served stuffed into a winter squash. Feel free to choose between delicious organic red palm oil or organic extra virgin olive oil. If you’ve got some small baked squashes, such as acorn, this makes a lovely stuffing.

Apple Crumble Pie

Apples scented with cinnamon — YUM! When I created this pie crust recipe, I imagined an oatmeal cookie crust. Most oatmeal cookies have eggs, butter and sugar. Not this one! Here, I subbed chia seeds and water for eggs; coconut sugar and coconut oil for a super delicious, healthy twist. And, it’s vegan! Photos by Tracey Eller. more→

Tempeh, Brussels Sprouts, and Sweet Potato stew

Just about any type of tempeh—soy, quinoa, sesame, wild rice—works well in this stew, which tastes even better the next day. Cranberry-Orange Sauce is a perfect accompaniment.

Gluten-Free Peach Pie

Gluten-free Peach pie with teff crust

Remarkably delicious, this pie is fun and easy to make. For a light-colored piecrust use ivory teff flour; for a chocolate-brown piecrust use brown teff flour. Both are equally scrumptious and both are available at natural foods stores to make great gluten-free pie crust and other baked goods.
