Gluten Free Dinner: Sushi Bowl

There is no raw fish in this dish but you can always add whatever seafood you want.  I used cooked shrimp, but grilled salmon would be great on top of it also.  This recipe made 2 bowls and took about an hour to cook.


Ingredients:

  • 12 shrimp, cooked
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 mango, cubed
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, deseeded and cubed
  • 1/3 cup of red quinoa, cooked in water
  • 1/3 cup brown rice, cooked in water
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup low sodium tamari
  • 1 tbsp or a little more of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of grated ginger
  • 1tsp-1tbsp of wasabi (I used packets from the sushi counter at Whole Foods)
Directions:

Stir together the tamari, ginger, wasabi and apple cider vinegar in a large bowl.  Add the quinoa, rice, cucumber, mango, avocado and shrimp and mix.  Top with sesame seeds and enjoy!

Grain Free Dinner: Sweet Potato Hash


Ingredients:
  • 1 Jewel yam, cubed
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 links of italian chicken/turkey sausage
  • 2 eggs
  • Guacamole (how I whip mine up: avocado, onion, jalopeno, lime, cilantro) or sliced avocado.

Directions:

  1. In a skillet, melt the coconut oil and sauté the sweet potato on low heat.  Once they are softened, add the onion and the italian sausage and break it up with the spatula.  I turn the heat up to medium at this point.
  2. In a buttered pan, cook eggs how you like them, I did over easy.
