Gluten-Free Menus: January 28

After spending three weeks with Vegan Planet, which I checked out of our local library, I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to reduce their meat consumption. We tried five recipes from it--a stew, a stir-fry, a sauce, veggie burgers, and croquettes--and all were tasty and easy to prepare. Most of the recipes are either gluten-free or easily converted to gluten-free (i.e. by using GF breadcrumbs). Only a few recipes rely on wheat gluten or use seitan or a grain that not easy to substitute for.

Here's what we're eating this week:

Sunday: turkey cutlets with paprika, walnut-millet-celeriac croquettes (courtesy of Vegan Planet), salad
Monday: Chinese Velvet Corn Soup (from Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special) and a yet-to-be determined asian-inspired salad
Tuesday: broiled salmon, brown rice, miso soup
Wednesday: potato-chard gratin (it will be a combo of the recipes in this article replacing the cream, brie, and tons of eggs with cottage cheese, lower fat cheeses, and fewer eggs)
Thursday: we're out of the house!
Friday:Cranberry and Herb Turkey Burgers (I use quinoa instead of couscous), baked sweet potato fries, challah
Saturday: Turkey Burger redux
