Kicking off the weekend with a hearty gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free dinner. My turkey meatballs with marinara sauce-recipe for both is on my website, link in bio; grain-free dinner rolls, Caesar salad made with fresh chopped romaine & homemade gluten-free croutons tossed with dairy-free Caesar dressing.
1 head fresh romaine lettuce
1-2 stalks finely chopped celery
Sliced gluten-free, dairy-free bread of choice (I use Live G-Free Whole Grain Bread; available at Aldi Stores; https://www.aldi.us/en/grocery-home/aldi-brands/livegfree/pantry/pantry-detail/ps/p/livegfree-gluten-free-whole-grain-bread/ ), cubed
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing onto croutons (I use Whole Foods, 365 Everyday Value Brand; http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/about-our-products/product-lines/365-everyday-value)
1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
½ tsp Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp coconut aminos (I use Coconut Secret; https://www.coconutsecret.com/aminos2.html )
Dash of powdered garlic, sea salt and pepper
1Tbs nutritional yeast
Directions for Salad:
Fill a large salad bowl with chopped romaine, add chopped celery.
Directions for homemade gluten-free/dairy-free croutons:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Brush a foil-lined baking sheet with olive oil. Spread bread cubes in a single layer on lined sheet. Brush with additional olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Toss to combine. Bake for about 5-10 minutes. Check and turn cubes over when golden. Continue cooking, checking every 5 minutes until golden and crunchy all the way through. Toss with additional sea salt and set aside to cool.
Directions for dressing:
Whisk 2Tbs olive oil, 1Tbs lemon juice, ½ tsp Dijon mustard, 1/8 tsp coconut aminos, a dash of garlic, salt & pepper until emulsified. Add 1Tbs nutritional yeast and mix until combined well.
Scatter croutons on salad and toss with dressing.
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegetarian
