Cashew Fish – Here’s a new baked fish option from Diane.

Fish of choice (Diane recommends tilapia)

Preheat oven to 350. Dredge fish in mustard to coat both sides. Lay fish in cashews to coat just one side. Place fish on a cookie sheet with the nut side up. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until cooked through.

Chocolate Sweet Potato Torte – When a relative made this recipe for Becky, she knew she’d found a winner. “It was the richest, moistest cake ever. And oh so chocolaty!! Only after learning about the sweet potatoes could I vaguely detect them. YUMMY!!” (From

1 ½ c sugar, divided
1 c packed cooked, mashed orange-fleshed sweet potato
1 c almond flour
½ c unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
1/8 tsp salt
4 large eggs
2 oz Ghirardelli 70% Cacao Extra Bittersweet Baking Bar or other GFCF bittersweet chocolate
2 TBS Nature’s Promise Original or other GFCF soy milk

Preheat oven to 375. Coat 9-inch springfoam pan with Giant Canola or other GFCF cooking spray. Blend sweet potato, 1 cup sugar, almond flour, cocoa, and salt in food processor 30 seconds or until smooth, scraping bowl as necessary.

Separate 3 eggs, placing whites in bowl of electric mixer. Add 3 yolks and remaining whole egg to sweet potato mixture. Pulse to combine. Transfer sweet potato mixture to large bowl.

Beat egg whites with electric mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Add remaining ½ c sugar. Beat 2 minutes more or until stiff, glossy peaks form.

Quick Fried Rice – Thanks to Priya for sharing this GFCF-friendly version of fried rice.

½ c uncooked rice uncooked (Priya recommends Basmati rice)
1 bunch chopped spring onions (whites and greens separately)
1 TBS olive oil (I use olive oil)
½ c cabbage, chopped
½ c carrots, chopped
1 tsp sugar
Salt to taste
2 tsp wheat-free Tamari or other GF soy sauce
1 tsp pepper

Cook rice as per directions. (Usually a ratio of 1:2 of rice to water in a electric rice cooker works for Basmati rice). Set aside. Sauté whites of spring onions in a pan with oil until transparent. Add cabbage and carrots and cook until slightly tender. Add sugar, salt, and tamari. Continue cooking about five minutes to blend flavors. Stir in cooked rice and pepper. Garnish with remaining spring onions.

Potato Bread Rolls – Priya also shares this favorite comfort food. See the tips at the end for ways to vary the recipe to suit your family’s tastes.

4 slices GFCF bread (I use bread made from Bob’s Red Mill Bread Mix)
2 medium gold potatoes
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp red chilly powder (optional)
½ tsp chopped coriander leaves (optional)
1 c water
Oil to deep fry

Boil the potato until cooked either in a microwave or on the stove. Peel and mash well. Add the salt, pepper, chilly powder and coriander leaves and mix well into the mashed potato mixture. Roll the potato mixture into roughly four parts. Roll each part into a ball and then extend the shape (kind of like a hotdog). Set aside.

Pour water into a separate flat pan. Take a slice of GFCF bread and dip it completely in the water. Wait for 2-3 seconds, then immediately take it out and quickly squeeze out all the water. Remove the harder bread crust sides. The bread slice will become soft and pliable.

Take one potato ball and use the softened slice of bread to cover it completely. Use your wet fingers to shape the slice so it completely covers the potato ball and the ball is no longer visible. Repeat with remaining bread slices.

Deep fry all the ball-bread slice combinations until they turn golden brown. Enjoy with your favorite GFCF ketchup!

TIP: Once you are familiar with the above, you can vary this recipe as you like by changing the spices or by adding other vegetables. This is a good way to ‘hide’ vegetables. Cooked carrots, peas, beans and cauliflower are all good vegetables to use in this recipe with the potato mixture either individually or together.
