Carol Fenster’s 100 Best Quick Gluten-Free Recipes

Carol Fenster, author of 11 gluten-free cookbooks, is releasing her newest cookbook geared to help you make healthy meals in no time at all. Many of us tend to eat out or pick up take-out because we may not have the time to make dinner at home. Unfortunately that isn’t just expensive, but it can be risky, too. I know that I have accidentally ingested gluten on more than one occasion either dining out or picking up take-out.

Fenster starts off by sharing information about the gluten-free diet and tips on how to best use your time so that the meals in this book take no longer than 30 minutes to make. The book is divided into five chapters:

  • Breakfast and Breads
  • Soups, Salads, Sandwiches and Snacks
  • Grains, Beans and Pasta
  • Main Dishes
  • Desserts

The book also has a page and a half of menus so that there is really no work other than shopping and cooking left to do on your part; no trying to figure out what to serve with what, it is all spelled out for you. As I was browsing through the book I was thrilled to see some of my childhood favorites included:

  • Linguine with Red Clam Sauce
  • Chicken Cacciatore
  • Chicken Fried Steak
  • Chicken Parmesan

And some new recipes that I have bookmarked to make soon:

  • Shrimp and Grits
  • Pan-Roasted Chicken Breasts with Apricot-Teriyaki Glaze
  • Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes
  • Chocolate Mousse

I love how each recipe tells you right at the top how long the prep and cooking time will take. It is helpful when short on time and trying to figure out if there is time to make a specific dish on a specific day, or if it is better to plan that recipe for another night.

Fenster’s new book, 100 Best Quick Gluten-Free Recipes, is priced at $16.99 and can be purchased from several different media outlets.
