There is nothing like a big old plate of Low-Carb Gluten-Free Sriracha Chicken Wings to put a smile on my face. In fact, wings are my go-to Saturday night dinner. If I’m feeling especially generous, I might make them for the whole family. But if I’m being honest, most times I wait until the boy goes to bed and it becomes a feast for the hubby and me. Throw in some celery sticks and a tall, cold glass of iced tea and I am a happy camper!
When I began removing all the processed foods from our pantry, I was very hesitant to let go of my Huy Fong Sriracha sauce. But as I read the ingredient label, I knew it had to go. So what’s a girl to do when her favorite condiment is no longer allowable? She begins experimenting and makes her own. Bear in mind that most sriracha is fermented. Because I don’t have the patience to wait, I created a version that does not require the fermentation process. This Low-Carb Gluten-Free sriracha sauce will last about 2 weeks in the fridge or much longer in the pantry if you can it. You can of course make a big old mess of wings and use it up immediately.
This Traditional Greek Vinaigrette Dressing Low-Carb Gluten-Free Recipe was my first attempt at recipe creating, primarily because I don’t care for the taste of store-bought dressing. This vinaigrette can be used as a dressing or as a marinade. I like to marinate chicken in it overnight. Not only does the chicken come out flavorful, but it’s incredibly moist. Enjoy!
My Field of Greens Salad is one I save for fancier meals. It makes the perfect Low-Carb Gluten-Free salad for a formal meal or for a date night with your honey. Not only does it look elegant on the plate, but it is packed full of nutrients. I would suggest preparing this salad on individual plates rather than family style. Pour your favorite dressing into a pretty salad oil bottle or small pitcher and let everyone pour their own dressing.
Bored with the same old tired burger? My Low-Carb Gluten-Free Veal Parmesan Burgers are just the thing to add some fun and variety to your menu. This burger recipe is a definite crowd pleaser! You can even make them miniature sized and serve them for parties.
Low-Carb Gluten-Free Dijon-Garlic Tomatoes and Cucumbers makes a great summer side dish. It’s cool and refreshing, and the longer you marinate it, the better it tastes. It double easily if you’re having a large crowd for over for dinner.
Sometimes, you need a no-fuss way to deal with dinner. This is when a one dish meal comes in handy. My Packet Up Dijon Fish Fillets are Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, delicious and nutritious and take less time to make then it will take for you to pick up carry-out. During the hot summer months when you don’t want to heat up the house, you can throw the packets on the grill. Here’s the exciting part-you don’t even have dirty your plates. You can serve the meal in its foil packet!
I prefer a light and refreshing Low-Carb dessert after a heavy meal and fresh fruit is usually my preference. If you don’t care for my fruit choices, feel free to substitute with your own favorite low glycemic fruits for the Cantaloupe Wedges. Adding the Swerve Granular Sweetener to the fruit gives it a bit of extra sweetness as well as macerate the fruit which allows the natural sweetness to shine. I have found that frozen organic blueberries work best in this recipe.
Perfect with almost any meal, Low-Carb Gluten-Free creamed spinach is one of my favorite side dishes. Because it is so rich and creamy your kids won’t even mind the spinach; mine have grown to love it! You can use fresh spinach in this recipe, but I find the frozen to be a little quicker and easier to work with when creaming. If you have leftovers try adding some to an omelet for an extra special treat.
Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than a nice cold glass of Low-Carb Iced Tea. I like to incorporate the flavors of summer into my tea and my favorite is Sugar-Free Peach Iced Tea. Of course, if peach isn’t your thing you can use your favorite fruit flavor. I suggest making this tea the night before so you give the flavors time to marry. If you’re having a party and you want something with a little kick, feel free to add a dash of tequila to the glass and you can call it a low-carb margarita.
