When you're trying to lose weight, many diet books talk about how to cook delicious meals without gluten. They want you to remove anything that may cause an inflammation. So goodbye bread and cheese, alcohol and nuts.
While I'm not sure that's the answer for everyone, I can understand the desire to cut something out for a week to see how your body responds.
So I came up with some quick tips for making it easier to cook without gluten.
Quick Tips for Delicious Meals Without Gluten
Cooking with skewers may seem easy; however, there are some tips that will make your skewer cuisine delicious every time. Metal skewers will work better if they are twisted or squared.
Here is a tip that will thicken your sauce quickly and easily so that all your hard work will not have been wasted. Mix together a solution of one tablespoon cornstarch and two tablespoons water. Thicken your sauce by stirring in this solution. Be sure to add the mixed starch slowly, you don't want the sauce to get too thick. You can also use arrowroot.
Using chicken broth is something you can try when you're making vegetables. Simmering vegetables in the broth will keep them from adhering to the bottom of the pan and also infuse them with rich flavor. Chicken broth is readily available at most grocery stores, and it is very affordably priced.
Buy a spiralizer and replace noodles with vegetable noodles.
Think about other ways to present meals using vegetables instead of bread.
Quick Tips When Cooking for Others
If you have a meal that is important, like for a date or your boss, try cooking one of your better dishes so that you are familiar with it and know it tastes good. Avoid trying out new recipes or new ingredients in such a situation. You will have a more relaxed and less anxious cooking experience.
Remember, if you like it, they probably will too!
