Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Rice Paper Ravioli

Rice Paper Ravioli2__No Sugarless Gum

I’ve been wondering what other fun things I can do with rice paper, since I still have some left over from when I made Fried Cheeseburger Spring Rolls.  For me, this was a hit.  Rice paper can be a little difficult to work with, but if you don’t care what the final product turns out looking like then it’s not such a big deal.
Don’t expect these to taste like the ravioli you once knew because the texture of the rice paper is not the same as wheat dough, but they’re still quite good!  Especially with the white sauce I used. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Easy Recipes: 1-Egg Omelette

1-Egg Omelette3__No Sugarless Gum

I’ve never been a big fan of the omelette.  It’s hard to spell and just a little too eggy for me.  I usually know right from the smell of a food whether or not I’m going to hate it, but eggs always trick me.  They smell so good but then they have that slimy, squeaky texture.  Blech!

But when loaded up with cheese, ham, and a crap-load of bacon, an egg is the perfect vehicle. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Fried Cheeseburger Spring Rolls

Fried Cheeseburger Spring Rolls4__No Sugarless Gum

Lately I’ve been looking for a good recipe that uses rice paper in kind of a fun way, but mostly I’ve found the standard spring roll ingredients, so I decided to make one of my own!  I needed some help with the part about frying the spring rolls (also hard to find) so I used this recipe for guidance (and it actually would work as a “fun” recipe itself, but there are just too many ingredients we would have to omit). Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Easy Recipes: Easy Cheesy Rice

Easy Cheesy Rice2__No Sugarless Gum

I usually cook dinner on Sunday night and then eat the leftovers of that meal throughout the week.  Last weekend I was too lazy to make anything and by week’s end I was starting to get desperate for something different.  I always have leftover rice, so I threw that in the microwave with some cheese and: ta-da!  The easiest meal ever. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Spaghetti Gorgonzola

Spaghetti Gorgonzola__No Sugarless Gum

Seriously?  She’s posting another pasta recipe?

Quiet.  I absolutely adore pasta.  And cheese.  And together they are perfection.  I had never had Gorgonzola cheese before I tried this recipe (adapted from Martha Stewart), and I didn’t realize it was so…powerful.  After my first bite I wasn’t sure I wanted another, but much like spicy food it became addicting and soon my dinner was gone. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Three-Cheese Pasta Bake

Three-Cheese Pasta Bake__No Sugarless Gum-2

I’m a pretty big noodle freak.  I could eat pasta every single day without ever getting sick of it–and I used to do just that.  Now I don’t eat pasta quite as much as I once did since dumping a jar of spaghetti sauce over a bowl of noodles is no longer an option, and I’m not a big fan of the way a lot of gluten-free noodles taste without some kind of flavor to overpower it.  Cheese can usually do the trick.
I’ve made a dish similar to this one before, but I prefer this one in both taste and easiness of preparation.  I think this entry from myrecipes.com might be my fourth cheesy-pasta dish, but like I said: noodle freak. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Creamy Cheese Penne

Creamy Cheese Penne__No Sugarless Gum

This is a sort of “grown up” version of mac and cheese, but I think kids would like it too!  I found it on MyRecipes.com and barely had to change a thing (just made two things gluten free)! Continue reading
