Gluten-free Menu Swap and Menu Plan Monday: September 15, 2008

Posted By yum On September 14, 2008 @ 7:25 pm In Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday, Menu, Menu Plan Monday | 4 Comments

[1]This week’s gluten-free menu swap is hosted by Asparagus Thin [2] and the theme ingredient is the PLANTAIN! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. My menu this week is inspired by Tomatofest [3], an heirloom tomato festival in Carmel, California that we attended this Sunday. Almost every day features beautiful heirloom tomatoes that I bought at the festival, and I’ll definitely share pictures of the successes! Don’t forget to check out the fun menu plans over at Org Junkie [4].

Monday: Farmer’s Market
Marguerita Heirloom tomato tart (inspired by this gluten-based recipe [5], but my version will be like a cross between a marguerita pizza and a tart- should be fun!)

Wednesday: Low-carb
Spaghetti Squash “macaroni and cheese” [6] -modified with bean flour thickened sauce, garnished with heirloom tomatoes

Thursday: Italian
Mushroom risotto
Baked-fried heirloom tomatoes
with bean vinaigrette salad

Friday: Mexican
Corn tacos with homemade refried beans and heirloom tomato pico de gallo
and dehydrated plantains dessert (if I can find plantains and have time)

I have so many posts, and so little time to write them in! This week you can expect the start of a series on Gluten-Free Dining Adventures in Portland and Seattle, as well as a roundup of the last “Adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger Event” and an announcement of some exciting changes to the event.

Sorry, no dressing of the week this week, but stay tuned next week for a new, yummy and healthy yogurt based dressing!
