Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

This recipe is from Gluten-Free Goddess She calls this a shepherd’s pie, then laughs at how it has beef instead of lamb; how it should be a cottage pie, but it has a Mediterranean flavor instead of peas and carrots; how it should be a rancher’s pie, but rancher’s don’t typically grow zucchini and artichokes.

Cheesy Zucchini Tomato Basil Bake

The original recipe is by Gluten Free For Good, who was inspired by Vegetarian Times Magazine. I adapted the recipe to vegan standards. I know we’re well into autumn right now. In fact, November is one of my favorite months (mostly because of Thanksgiving and my birthday). So why am I making this late summer […]

Chocolate Zucchini “Bread”

Zucchini! The one I used in this recipe was huge (as you can see), and I didn’t even use all of it. And you guessed it: it was part of my urban farm class harvest. I’ve always loved zucchini bread/cake, even before I knew I was gluten intolerant. There must be something about the vegetable […]

Zucchini Fritters

I wanted to roast them, and adding some yellow squash and heirloom striped zucchini was the perfect touch. Ingredients assorted potatoes […]

Simple Stir Fry

So, as a school nerd (and with a vague possibility of studying abroad in the spring), I’m taking some college classes this summer. Most days the load is light, but Tuesdays and Thursdays I have class from 9 to 2. Lunch? What? Eating in the middle of the afternoon can be a pain, and I […]

Vegetable Hummus Pizza

Do you ever miss pizza? The tang of tomato sauce, the greasy cheese, the delicious crust? Rest easy, because pizza is completely do-able on a gluten-free (and dairy-free, and egg-free, and many other “free”) diet(s). (Hurray!) I’ve bought some ready-bake pizzas in the store before (like Amy‘s Spinach Pizza with rice crust). They’re great, but […]

Zucchini Risotto

This is a fabulous recipe that will help make of some of that summer overflow of zucchini disappear in a hidden way. The mix of spices, garlic, and great zucchini flavor actually surprised me the first time I cooked this–I didn’t expect it to be so delicious! Risotto is is a traditional Italian rice dish […]
