Cooking with food allergies requires some planning and meal preparation. I am a huge advocate for preparing dishes that can make 4-6 meals to provide meals for lunch and dinner during the week. This gluten-free recipe uses all gluten-free and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Note: The rice can be substituted for your grain of choice (like quinoa, white or brown rice) or even using no grains at all.

Remember, there are so many things you CAN eat with food allergies!
