These Green Chili Turkey Burgers are based on a fabulous recipe from Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint Cookbook. His recipe is actually called Fried Eggs Over Green Chili Burgers, and is yet another high-protein entree from the king of primal that my entire family enjoyed.
Green Chili Turkey Burgers
2 (4 oz.) cans diced green chiles
1 pound ground turkey
1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
½ cup onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
In a medium sized bowl mix diced chiles ... read more →

My garden is flourishing and the basil plants are doing particularly well. Hence pesto, gluten free, dairy free, chopping board pesto. A couple of years ago, I saw a recipe in the local paper for a chopping board pesto, and then just the other day, my friend the fabulous Patrick reminded me about making pesto using this method.
My favorite way to eat this delicious green stuff is on a gluten free (of course) cracker. Enjoy!

1 cup basil, well ... read more →

Finally, a gluten free cracker that is egg free as well! Who do I have to thank for this tasty cracker? Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple and author of The Primal Blueprint and The Primal Blueprint Cookbook. I am a huge fan of Mark and his work.

This recipe for quick and easy grilled salmon is based on Kalyn’s Grilled Salmon with Maple Syrup Glaze from Kalyn’s Kitchen. I find that her site is a fantastic source overall, and particularly for protein filled entrees. I had the pleasure of being on a panel at Blogher last year with Kalyn, and am looking forward to seeing her again this year. The Blogher Food Conference is less than 2 months away.

This recipe for Grilled Zucchini is one of my favorites for several reasons. First, it’s a good way to use up the prolific zucchini of August. Second, it’s mighty easy to make. And third, it’s delicious. Let’s not forget reason number four though –zucchini and summer squash are a healthy side dish for any meal.
Lately I’ve been serving this Grilled Zucchini with my Rosemary Lemon Chicken. They make quite a summery pair, and along with a green salad comprise a ... read more →

This Rosemary Lemon Chicken has become my go to dinner dish this summer. In fact, I’ve been making it a couple of times a week and loving it, as has my family –children included. It’s super easy to make, very healthy and fabulously fresh and delicious with hints of garlic, lemon and rosemary complementing the flavor of grilled chicken.
Rosemary Lemon Chicken
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, pressed
¼ cup fresh rosemary, minced
½ teaspoon ... read more →

I’m slightly obsessed with coleslaw these days, especially any coleslaw made with purple cabbage which I find to be delectably sweet and crunchy. I’m always craving a good crunch in my food.
I like to serve this spicy slaw with my Turkey Burgers from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook or my Grilled Chipotle Orange Chicken.
½ head purple cabbage, shredded
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
2 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons olive oil
7 drops stevia

I confess, I have an addiction to broccoli rabe. I love the bitter flavor of this delicious green vegetable. I have always believed that bitter is such an important, yet under rated flavor in our culture.
I think a lot of people drink coffee for the bitter flavor that we all need so badly. My Ayurvedic teachers used to say, “bitter is better for pitta.” Pitta is the fire element and bitter is quite good for not only cleansing the liver, ... read more →

Here’s a quick and easy dessert that will wow your guests whether they’re gluten free or “full of gluten”. This Flourless Chocolate Cupcake recipe is dark and rich –my husband absolutely loved it.
He is really benefiting from the Elana’s Pantry month of cupcakes, given that he is my primary taste tester. And thankfully he enjoyed this treat as much as, or even more than, the last (Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes) –though that’s not much of a surprise since he’s quite the ... read more →

I’m on a gluten free cupcake mission, as you can see from the photo above and my other recent posts for Jelly Donut Cupcakes and Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes.
The boys are thrilled when they get home from school and the house looks like its ready for a birthday party. And I’m thrilled to see them with frosting all over their cute little faces.
Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes
1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

I’ve been slightly obsessed with rosemary lately. I put it in everything and just can’t seem to get enough of this delicious herb. My latest rosemary victim? Gluten free Lemon Rosemary Mini Muffins made with coconut flour.
I find that rosemary almost has a buttery flavor. It’s also power packed with nutrients including iron and calcium. These gluten free muffins are more of an adult treat than something for children. I’ve been in the mood lately for tasty snacking and dessert ... read more →

I have been craving a good, healthy, tasty, gluten free bran muffin for quite some time. Finally, thanks to flaxmania (I’m on a string of flax recipes this week) here it is.
My friend Chris was one of my guinea pigs for this baking endeavor. She took a flax muffin home from my house one day and ate it the next for breakfast. Later, I received a phone call from her requesting this recipe. I take that as a good ... read more →

I was reading our local paper yesterday and saw an article on Rosemary Fig Crackers (glutenoid of course) and decided I had to make my own gluten-free version (or g-free, if you prefer).
These gluten free crackers are super easy to make and delicious as well. My husband gave me the thumbs up on them.
Rosemary Fig Crackers
1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 teaspoon rosemary, minced
3-4 dried figs, chopped

It’s amazing what you can do without any flour! I made this gluten free chocolate cake using beets. Being “Deceptively Delicious“ I fooled my husband. While my children are game to eat pretty much anything I make, my husband is known as the “picky” eater around here.
Because of his strong critiques and my perfectionist bent, I often find myself testing a new recipe four, five or more times. Though this one I nailed the second time, it was that ... read more →

Recently I was paid a visit by the lovely Eve who not long ago gave up gluten and white sugar. We had tea in my kitchen and chatted about things, oh, I don’t really remember what, just that we had such a pleasant time together. It wasn’t really the content of our conversation (that was great), it was more about making a connection.
Eve emailed me yesterday asking for a gluten free Hamantaschen recipe. While I do have this one from ... read more →

We will be making this gluten free German Chocolate Cake (and many other dishes) in my next cooking class at the Culinary School of the Rockies, March 17th. If you want to sign up there is still some space left.
As we all know, there are many ways to make German Chocolate Cake. An entire chocolate cake can be frosted with a coconut pecan icing as I did a while back in this post. Alternatively, the sides of the cake can ... read more →

Recently, I created a flickr group so that all of you can share photos of recipes that you make from elanaspantry.com. I know that some of you enjoy uploading photos to the comments section and I love seeing your shots of my concoctions. So please, feel free to upload your pictures to the elana’s pantry flickr group. Can’t wait to see ‘em!
