Gluten Free Leftover Sunday Roast Dinner Quesadillas

I love a roast dinner and I don't care if it's pork, chicken or beef. Sunday roast dinners are popular here in the UK and we've been having one every week, so I've been on a mission to find yummy ways to put the leftovers to use. Cook once; eat twice and all that. This recipe was inspired by that desire to re-purpose our leftovers and uses my juicy roast chicken recipe and my vegan crispy roast potatoes recipe, too.

Sublime Heroism after the Manchester Attack

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

"[The people of Manchester have] a sublime [Christian] heroism, which has not been surpassed in any age or any country." --from Abraham Lincoln's 1863 letter to the workers of Manchester
It is hard to work today; hard to carry on because my city has been tainted with the cowardice of terrorism. Because children who should have been floating on that post-concert euphoria, singing at the top of their lungs and dancing in the streets were screaming and in tears and running for their lives. And I am angry that someone would think so little of their precious lives to act in such a cowardly way.

We live within two miles of the M.E.N. We have traipsed up the stairs from Victoria Station past the platforms of commuters up the ramp to the venue and down into the belly of the event space, surrounded by thousands of innocent people as we sang and danced to Florence and the Machine, to Stevie Wonder, to Train, to Depeche Mode, to The Cure .... the list goes on and on. That arena is my arena. If a big show comes to town, that's where we go. A place we have been to countless times; a place that is at the very heart of Manchester--literally and figuratively. And that place was under attack last night.

Gluten Free Cinnamon & Spinach Chicken Curry

Not every curry is full of spices that make your eyes water and your nose run. Some curries have a sweetness to them and are just comforting and lovely, like this one. Sure, there's a little kick from the cinnamon but sweet tomatoes, rich spinach and a dollop of yoghurt tame that right down. I originally shared this recipe on my blog back in 2013, but since then, I've adjusted the spices a bit more, halved the amount of Greek yogurt and swapped the gluten-filled orzo I used to serve it with for rice. It's still delicious, though--and great for leftovers the next day, warmed and rolled in a gluten free wrap? Yas, please.

Skinny Cinnamon and Spinach Chicken Curry without Gluten on Anyonita Nibbles

Piles of pilau rice--fragrant lightly spiced rice served with vegetables or nuts--usually accompany a curry, but I wanted something a little less heavy on the spice and served up simple basmati with a knob of butter forked through, seasoned with salt and sprinkled with golden linseeds because they are so good for you and more than just a topping for a yummy vegan butternut squash and leek soup.

Best Ever Gluten Free and Vegan Crispy Roast Potatoes

Crispy on the outside and fluffy inside, these roast potatoes are everything you've ever wanted a spud to be! With no smelly goose-fat in sight and all plant-based ingredients, you'll flip for these lightened up roasties! While I'm a true meat connoisseur, I have been making an effort to live a more plant-based life by eliminating unnecessary animal products from my diet.

Maybe they're not one of your 5-A-Day, but potatoes are pretty powerful (and dead comforting) on their own--check out all the different ways you can use them. Must we really smother them in animal fat to enjoy them? Move over, Delia; this is how an Old Millennial makes roast potatoes!

Best Ever Gluten Free Homemade Cheesy Garlic Bread

When it comes to carb-laden comfort food, it doesn't get much better than hot-from-the-oven buttery garlic bread smothered in cheese. When I knew I'd have to give up gluten, one of the things I mourned was garlic bread and big bowls of pasta. Thankfully, gluten free pasta is easily found these days, but a good garlic bread that didn't taste like cardboard? Well, that was tricky.

Best Ever Gluten Free Garlic Bread from Anyonita Nibbles

Traditionally, garlic bread is made with slices of French baguette--perfectly crusty and unmistakably delicious. But trying to replicate the crusty-cum-chewiness of a proper baguette without that essential stretchy gluten is pretty damn tough. I'd say it's impossible. Since a baguette was out of the question, I went seeking an alternative and found it in this cob of gluten free sourdough! All I'll say is: holy yum, y'all.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Coconut Milk Overnight Oats

Breakfast is my absolute favourite meal of the day and I am an oatmeal fiend. So much so that it's bordering on obsession, and when I saw the challenge to develop a recipe using Vita Coco's new coconut milk, I immediately thought of creamy oatmeal.

Leave that from-the-packet stuff with lumps of dehydrated fruit in the back of your cupboard. I'm going to show you how to make your own fruit-filled, creamy oatmeal that is gluten free, dairy free, suitable for vegetarians and vegan-friendly. I've used raspberries and peaches because they're seasonal, go incredibly well with coconut and it was too tempting not to, but you can use any fruit you have on hand or whatever is seasonal.

This recipe is an entry into the Dairy Free Style Your Breakfast challenge with Vita Coco and Foodies100. See more great breakfast ideas at http://vitacoco.com/uk. As such, this is a sponsored post for Vita Coco, however, all opinions remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. You can read my full disclosure policy, here.

Gluten Free Barbecue Chicken Thighs in the Oven

Y'all, it's hotting up outside! Okay, not in this exact moment, but in general, we're careening towards warmer days! As soon as it gets warm enough to hang the washing on the line, I immediately start thinking of barbecues--nothing beats the taste of food cooked over an open flame. But living in Manchester, those days of optimum barbecue weather are few and far between. All hail the power of barbecue in the oven!

Staying true to my southern American roots, I served this barbecue chicken with the most incredible mashed potatoes and creamed corn.
