Gluten-Free Quick & Easy

ISBN: 978-1583332788

Wheat-free-cooking expert Carol Fenster reveals her time-saving tips and techniques to help cooks put homemade meals on the table in a flash.

“This cookbook should be called ‘quick, easy, and smart.’ It teaches you how to organize your approach to food and cooking and makes your time in the kitchen reap dividends in terms of future meals.”  ––Ann Whelan, publisher of Gluten-Free Living Magazine


In Carol Fenster’s gluten-free cooking classes, the most frequently asked question is “How can I get a meal on the table in the least amount of time?” So often, cooking gluten-free means spending hours in the kitchen-making everything from scratch. But now, Fenster reveals all her shortcuts, tips, and timesaving techniques from nearly twenty years as the gluten-free cooking authority. The Quick & Easy principles in this book will get cooks in and out of the kitchen with less fuss than ever before.

Finally, a cookbook for busy people living gluten-free!  This book is a must for those who want to eat healthy but have little time or patience to be in the kitchen for hours.”–– Cynthia Kupper, RD, CD, Executive Director, Gluten Intolerance Group

In Gluten-Free Quick & Easy, a hot meal makes it to the table without a complicated ingredient list or a lengthy wait. Fenster emphasizes the necessity of “planned-overs”-not “left-overs”- that creatively use elements of one meal in the preparation of another, whether it becomes an ingredient the next day, the next week, or the next month. Recipes for make-ahead baking mixes and techniques to shorten baking times means cooks stay on track. And her comprehensive menu plans and ideas help pull together a week’s worth of meals with ease.

“Once again Carol Fenster has created even more fabulous gluten-free recipes. She has made gluten-free cooking easy and delicious.”  —Cynthia S. Rudert, MD., medical adviser, Celiac Disease Foundation and Gluten Intolerance Group of North America

Fenster’s simple but delicious recipes include favorites like hearty breads, pizzas, and pasta. In less time than ever before, gluten-free cooks can whip up homestyle entrees and side dishes, tasty breakfasts, and elegant desserts for every meal of the day, every day of the week.

Having done the ‘bake and toss’ far more often than I’d like to admit, I can tell you that ‘hassle-free’ and ‘gluten-free’ don’t always go together. But in Carol Fenster’s books they do. Leave it to her to come to the rescue again, this time with Gluten-Free Quick & Easy. It goes without saying that her recipes are delicious, but I especially admire the fact that she uses unique and nutritious ingredients. And she takes you beyond the recipes, showing you how kitchen tools, techniques, and planning and preparation can greatly reduce your time in the kitchen. If you have food sensitivities and are looking for quick-and-easy meals, this book is, like all of Carol’s, a must-have.”—Danna Korn, author of Living Gluten-Free for Dummies; Wheat-Free, Worry-Free; and Kids with Celiac Disease, and founder of R.O.C.K. (Raising our Celiac Kids).

“Carol has dished up another winner with tasty recipes that are quick and easy to prepare, using a minimal number of ingredients. Her practical meal planning and preparation tips make cooking a breeze!”—Shelley Case, RD, consulting dietitian and author of Gluten-Free Diet: A Comprehensive Resource Guide

“Although everyone knows that celiacs eat more safely at home, we all want to eliminate the burden of time spent in the kitchen while eating well. In this cookbook, Carol Fenster offers good-tasting meals, easily and quickly prepared. You will enjoy trying the new recipes with ready-made ingredients, mixes, and unconventional baking methods, and you’ll learn how to save time, organize menus, and use bulk cooking and planned leftovers for future meals.”—Janet Y. Rinehart, President, Houston Celiac Support Group and former President, CSA/USA
