It can be difficult to find gluten free BBQ sauce. It's even harder to find GF BBQ sauce that's fairly low in sodium. Try this and you'll find out taste doesn't have to equal salt.

Simplest dressing I know: equal parts mustard & vinegar and 2 parts honey. You can substitute cider vinegar for more of a kick or dijon mustard for a smoother taste.

Gluten-free Pesto
(no ratings)

You can make this recipe with basil or cilantro, and with any kind of nut (the original recipe called for pine nuts--I used walnuts). Great on plain rice crackers or thin with water or lemon juice and put over rice pasta as a cool summer sauce.

This is a gluten-free version of the great Spinach Balls made by my friend Ruth. She uses 1/2 cup breadcrumbs for the potato flakes. Or use 1/2 c. gluten-free breadcrumbs.

If you can't have ham for whatever reason (sodium, religion), here's a good split pea soup recipe that doesn't need it. You can add any veggies you have around the house to it if desired (I like chopped red pepper).

This is not only a great way to use up leftover turkey, but is very low calorie and, if you use no-salt corn, low in sodium too. Use whatever vegetables you like. Our family tops each serving with a tsp of Parmesan cheese.

This sounds like a strange combination, but it's SO good. The hard part of this recipe used to be cleaning and cubing the squash. You can now buy it already cubed in a bag.

Good served over rice or in a sandwich. Or add tomato puree to make sloppy joes. The fennel seed is what gives this a great flavor.

You can use any veggies in this quiche, and any cheeses besides the ricotta. I make it without the crust to keep it gluten-free but you can put it in a pie shell, too.

I adapted this directly from an 18th century recipe that was made in a skillet. I think of it as a gluten-free version of apple pie that you can just spoon out. Best served warm.

This is great in the summer when any kind of berry is on sale. Or make it with 2 cups of your favorite fruit or combination, adjusting sugar for tarter fruits.

These are good with honey or jam or put berries and whipped cream over them. If you make them less sweet (cut sugar by half), they're good as a biscuit dipped in soups or stews.

This is actually a custard, but with the banana fiber, it comes out the consistency of bread pudding.

Cookbook creator says: A little high on the calorie scale, but lots of potassium and very low sodium. And if you're doing Hanukkah, better to keep it simple and healthy.

The basic recipe came from the Gluten-Free Baking Classics cookbook. I cut some of the sodium and used all-purpose GF baking flour instead of their rice flour mix. These muffins come out very chocolatey and yummy.
