RE: Gluten-Free Vegan

Hi Oceandog, I am also a gluten-free vegan. I put two recipes below that my mom made over Christmas. We always had a salad to go with these dishes because they are mostly beans and rice and lacking in veggies. The best advantage of these dishes - beyond tastiness - is that they reheat very well.
I also make a peas and rice dish and a green beans over GF (Tinkyada) pasta dish for some of my go-to dnners. I would be happy to type those up for you if you are interested.
Here are some of my sources for recipes:
Karina Allrich - Gluten-Free Goddess - http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/
Happy Herbivore - http://happyherbivore.com/
I also just search for vegan recipes and pick ones that are inherently GF.
Beans & Rice
- Saute chopped onion in water or broth.
- When onions are almost done, add 1 or 2 cloves of minced garlic, cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add 2 cups of water
- Add 1 cup of rice and stir.
- Season with salt, pepper, chili pepper & cumin.
- Stir and bring to a boil, reduce heat & cook until almost done.
- Add 1 15 oz can of tomato sauce and 1 can of black beans (rinsed & drained) to rice.
- Stir to combine and finish cooking rice. You might try heating up the tomato sauce & black beans in the microwave before you add them to the rice.
- Check your seasonings when you add the beans to see if you need more of anything.
Grape leaf filling
- 1 cup of rice
- 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 cups of water
- 1/2 cup lemon juice (2 fresh lemons)
- 1/2 tsp of mint
- Cinnamon, pepper, garlic powder if you have it or a very small amount of garlic
- Stir ingredients & bring to a boil in a sauce pan (or your new pressure cooker). Then reduce heat & cook until rice is done.
- You may need more water for your rice. Follow the instructions on the package for the amount of rice you are using. It does not need much mint.
