Wheat Free Pasta!
A church member who made this wheat free pasta dish for our Sabbath potluck was so gracious enough to share her recipe.
Her recipe is below:
The idea for the pasta salad sprang from the Potato Salad recipe that I adapted from Peggy Dameron, THE JOY OF COOKING NATURALLY.
I used 2, 12 oz packets of organic brown rice pasta – PENNE – by Tinkyada which I have found at Walmart & Country Life Natural Foods. The ingredients are:- stone-ground organic brown rice & water.
These I cooked in 2 quarts of boiling water and 1 T of Celtic sea salt for about 20 min., drained, & rinsed several times in cold water. To the cold pasta I added 2 t salt & 2 t fresh lemon juice, about 3 c Cashew Mayonnaise as per recipe from:- Muriel Beltz, COOKING WITH NATURAL FOODS p.61. ( Adaptation to follow.)
Into the above ingredients I stirred:- 1 can of green ripe olives, sliced, about 1 1/2 c of finely sliced celery, 3/4 c very finely sliced red onion, about 1 1/2 c of finely sliced red sweet pepper & 1 T of dill weed. Best made the day before serving to let flavors blend. Garnish attractively – sprigs of parsley, pumpkin seeds, various possibilities.
Types of vegetables & amounts can be varied. I’ve used:- cooked & chilled legumes, grated carrots, frozen peas, green onions, radishes, etc.
For POTATO SALAD substitute 3 quarts of cooked, peeled, & diced potatoes for the 2 pks of pasta. The CASHEW MAYONNAISE really makes this salad.
4 c boiling water
2 c washed cashews
1/2 c fresh lemon juice
2 t salt
2 t onion powder
About 1 t garlic powder
BLEND cashews in water until smooth. COOK until thick. ADD lemon juice, salt, onion & garlic powders. Will keep covered & refrigerated at least 1 week. It is great on any cooked vegetable, as a bread spread, etc.
