Sesame Kelp Noodles

Posted on June 13, 2012

Low carb gluten free kelp noodles with sesame sauce make the perfect Paleo treat.

Back in the 1990’s, before I was gluten free, I ordered my fair share of sesame noodles from greasy Chinese restaurants. That was when I lived in New York City.  Even though it’s been a long time since I’ve eaten in a Chinese restaurant, that hankering for a good gluten free sesame noodle recipe has never gone away, so I’m happy to have created this one after […]

Sesame Salmon Burgers

Posted on May 10, 2011

These high protein Sesame Salmon Burgers pair nicely with Garlic Ginger Bok Choy (pictured in background of photo above; stay tuned for recipe next week).

I really like making these quick and easy gluten free burgers because they not only consist of highly nutritious wild salmon (obviously), they’re also packed with superfoods such as garlic, ginger and sesame seeds.  Sometimes I like to prepare the salmon mixture ahead of time (think the night before, so that the flavors can meld into […]

Bran Muffins

Posted on July 27, 2009

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 […]

Chinese Chicken Salad

Posted on June 22, 2009

We’ve been eating quite a lot of salad lately, and being the protein addict that I am, I’m constantly looking for new ways to make it into a full dinner.

I was first introduced to Chinese Chicken Salad years ago, by my dear friend Helen.  We’ve been friends now for close to 30 years and good salad is only one of the many things she has taught me about.  My version is a little different from hers, since she’s not gluten […]

Sesame Dip

Posted on April 21, 2009

Garnish this Sesame Dip starter with pieces of carrot and celery for dipping and you have an instantly satisfying salty and crunchy snack.  This dip is a hit at parties and was enjoyed at our Passover Seder (thinned out with a bit of water and) served over roasted asparagus.  It’s quite versatile and makes a great salad dressing as well.

Unfortunately, we devoured all of the Sesame Dip at our Seder.  I was determined to make another batch the next day.  […]

Sesame Cookies

Posted on March 31, 2009

These Sesame Cookies are yet another Passover friendly dessert recipe.

I wouldn’t necessarily have thought of making cookies with sesame. Why? Because I am surrounded by several choco-holics and bake primarily to their tastes. Let’s just say that the brownie recipe I posted a few weeks ago is still getting good play around here. My 10 year old son whips up a quick batch of these high-protein brownies almost every weekend.

Thankfully, I received the below a few […]

Sesame Truffles

Posted on November 7, 2008

These Gluten Free Truffles my final installment of the trufflemania series.  At least for now.

These super nutritious little bites of sesame sweetness remind me of the halva I used to devour as a child.  They’re easy to make, vegan, dairy-free and of course, gluten-free.  Don’t let all those labels scare you though, more than anything else, they’re just plain old delicious.

Sesame Noodles

Posted on January 13, 2008

I find nothing as yawn-inspiring as a food blogger who “yums” at their own creations. I see it on blogs all the time. “‘Yum, yum and yum,’ and did I say, ‘yum?!’” I can hear them now, oohing and ahhing at their own creations. However, I may soon become part of this silly little navel gazing taste-bud gazing club.

Tonight I made sesame noodles. That old dish from the Chinese restaurants in New York. I didn’t think I’d be eating sesame […]

Kale with Gomasio

Posted on November 29, 2007

I’ve been laying low since Thanksgiving, cleaning my house with abandon, giving away everything the boys and I don’t use. That said, in between sorting stuff and testing desserts for the upcoming holidays, I’ve been relying on some staple seasonal vegetable dishes to take me through the dark season.

This is an easy, family favorite. Just steam the kale and sprinkle with gomasio.

Sesame Crackers

Posted on May 3, 2007

Highly nutritious gluten free crackers go well with guacamole, goat cheese and olive tapenade.

These gluten free crackers made with high protein almond flour and sesame seeds are a wonderfully crunchy Paleo friendly snack. With this quick and easy cracker recipe you can have homemade crackers in mere minutes. These gluten free crackers are also grain free, full of fiber and therefore very satiating.

Every time my friend Patricia, Pilates Diva extraordinary, comes over she walks out of the house with […]

Gomasio

Posted on April 20, 2007

Gomasio is healthy, tasty and easy enough for a child to make.

One of my favorite gluten free condiments, Gomasio is made of sesame seeds, a healthy food, high in protein and fiber. This nutritious Asian sesame seed condiment is also full of calcium and super tasty.

In the photo above, my older son is stirring up a double batch for the family. Below, we have transferred the seeds to a suribachi and prepare to take turns grinding.
