Gluten Free Menu At Paella Bar In Poulsbo

October 6th, 2010 at 3:16 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
  • Comments
Have you been to the Paella Bar in Poulsbo, WA?  I finally had an opportunity to go recently.  It is amazing! As soon as I walked in, I knew this would be a new favorite!  The atmosphere is so intimate, the colors are so warm, you feel like you are in a secret tapas bar in Spain.
We were greeted immediately and sat down in the bar area.  Just as I was getting comfortable and looking around to take it all in, I couldn't help but gaze endlessly at the wall across from me.   The picture below is a gorgeous mural of a bull fighter and bull. The wall it is on is about 12 feet tall by 16 feet (approximately) wide along the seating area next to the bar just as you walk in.  Love it! There are big windows along the main wall along the street, that can slide open to enjoy a warm summer day or night.  My guess is that the space probably seats about 50-60 people.  I do know that they can accommodate large groups of 5 or more with a reservation, please call 360 930 8446.  I am thinking party here for any occasion!

As soon as we sat down the waiter/bartender came over to greet us.  His name was Ryan and he began to tell us that they make all of their mixes for their drinks fresh daily, including Sangria - White Pear Sangria is a signature drink.  They also have Potato Vodka, and it is Gluten Free! So he began to pour us our filtered water and  I asked Ryan,  Do you have a Gluten Free menu?
His reply ... YES we do! and with a smile!
I was beside myself ... I love it when you get that kind of reaction when asking a restaurant about Gluten Free ... love it!
So he brought me the Gluten Free Menu and there are about 20 tapas and Paella with all Seafood or Seafood and Chicken. Actually as you look at the menu most of the items on a Tapas menu are Gluten Free without making changes or effort.  I suggest that you look for a Tapas Bar in your neighborhood or while you are traveling because they will most likely be a great way to enjoy a Gluten Free meal safely in its own cazuela or authtentic clay dish. Prices range from $3.50 - $10 and the Paella is $16.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates, Bacon Wrapped with Balsamic Reduction
Perfection ... I make these at home and love them!

This was a special for the day
Sauteed Artichokes with Manchego Cheese

Garlic Prawns ...
need I say more?

Seabass Skewers with Salsa Verde and Roasted Pepper Coulis
Signature top ... Tapas

Sauteed Spinach with Golden Raisins and Pinenuts

Potato Tortilla with Chorizo and Spinach

Seafood Paella
(made in 16 minutes that works for me!)

Chocolate Truffle Torte with Caramel Sauce and Grey Salt
Yes, it was big, divine and I actually shared it but I really wanted all of it! 

Ok, so I know what you are thinking ... did she really eat all of that? Well yes and no ... you see when I started writing this posting, I was looking at the menu and started to get so hungry that I called my friend Ana, to meet me there.  I just had to go back to make sure that the food and service were as awesome as I remembered and I am so happy to report .... Excelente! 
Believe it or not there are so many Tapas and the Flan that I still want to try so I will have to go back ... and will do this happily because they are open 7 days a week! 11:30 AM - 11 PM.

I highly recommend that you go to the Paella Bar in Poulsbo for Tapas, Paella and Drinks! It is worth a ferry ride from Seattle and you will be so happy you experienced it!

Gluten Free Pear Fig Muffins

October 2nd, 2010 at 2:45 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie

This posting originally posted on the Bob's Red Mill website on September 29, 2010.  I was thrilled to be a guest blogger for them and love using their certified Gluten Free products! I thought I would repost and share it with you just in case you missed it! Namaste, Lisa

This morning I was thinking about the autumn leaves as I was practicing my yoga in Tree pose. While I was standing tall and rooting down, I began to think about all the things that I do to nourish my mind, body and soul to get ready for winter. I try to practice yoga on a daily basis to help me manage my health. I have Celiac Disease and chronic pain. In the winter time, it is especially hard for me to get moving in the morning. The more that I can do to simplify my breakfast, making it tasty and healthy, the better I feel.

I created this Gluten Free Pear Fig Muffin recipe because I want something hearty like a warm bowl of oatmeal but I just can’t eat oats - certified Gluten Free or not. My body just can’t digest oats but I love oatmeal. So I thought about the autumn flavors that I like and how I could re-create them into a hearty, not too sweet muffin. This Gluten Free Pear Fig Muffin has high protein and fiber. The flavors of the pears, figs, honey, cinnamon and vanilla satisfy your hunger and sweet tooth to get your day started naturally well. I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Almond Meal/ Flour and Hazelnut Meal /Flour because I like the combination of the flavors and textures together.

I make the muffins first thing in the morning so that I can get moving and warm up. While the muffins are baking, I practice my yoga. It is best to practice yoga on an empty stomach. The aroma is amazing and will motivate you to get through your practice.

Gluten Free Pear Fig Muffins
Makes approximately 18 muffins

Dry Ingredients

2 ½ C Bob’s Red Mill finely ground Almond meal/flour
½ C Bob’s Red Mill finely ground Hazelnut meal/flour
½ tsp Sea salt
½ tsp Baking soda
½ tsp Cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

¼ C Grape seed oil
¼ C Honey
½ C Dried figs, chopped small chunks
1 ½ C (2) Pears, peeled & pureed in food processor
½ tsp Lemon juice
2 large Eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp Pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pans with 18 paper cups.

• Combine almond meal/flour, hazelnut meal/flour, sea salt, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

• Whisk to sift ingredients and break up any lumps.

• Peel 2 medium size pears and cut them into pieces.

• Use a food processor to finely chop the pears. Add the lemon juice while chopping.

• In a separate medium bowl, combine grape seed oil, honey, eggs, vanilla, figs, and finely chopped pears with lemon juice.

• Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.

• Spoon the batter to just below the top of the paper cup.

• Bake for 30-40 minutes until tops are brown and cake tester inserted into center comes out clean.

• Remove from pan and cool on rack.


• Measure the honey after the grape seed oil and it will completely flow out of the cup.
• Store nut meal/flours in refrigerator - measure amount needed and let come to room temperature. Use the whisk in a metal bowl to help break up the chunks and make the nut flour loose.
• When processing the pears, add the lemon juice to the pears to keep their color.
• Cinnamon is a great warming herb and is low on the glycemic index to help stabilize blood sugar levels.

Some of my other loves besides Yoga and Gluten Free food are cooking, baking and blogging. I have been creating recipes since I was a young girl and tall enough to see over the counter. The only difference is that now my recipes are all Gluten Free. I prefer to use Bob’s Red Mill, certified Gluten Free products because it is one less thing for me to worry about. I also love the fact that they are an “employee owned company”! How great is that? If you are ever in the Portland, Oregon area it is worth the trip to the Bob’s Red Mill factory to see … start the angelic choir… the Mecca for Gluten Free baking!

I have been writing the Gluten Free Foodies blog - for a little over a year and a half. I started the blog because I found myself talking to so many people about living Gluten Free when I was out at the grocery store or at various random places. I like to research information to make me healthy and to share the information that I have learned. The blog was a perfect place for me to provide the information such as recipes, experiences, reviews of products and restaurants. I also started a support group at the same time because I wanted to have something a bit more social to look forward to each month. Both the blog and the support group are great therapy for me. I love meeting all the people and hearing everyone’s stories. I love the feeling when we can get together and enjoy really great Gluten Free food together; after all we are Foodies even without Gluten! I like to say, Gluten Free Foodies - Celebrate the foods that you can eat! ©

Must Have – "Cooking Gluten-Free!" by Karen Robertson

September 29th, 2010 at 6:17 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
  • Comments
What a great thing for the modern kitchen to be able to look up healthy Gluten Free recipes on a CD that you put into your computer - "Cooking Gluten-Free!" by Karen Robertson.  This is a delightful and beautiful cookbook, which includes Amaranth, Buckwheat, Teff and Quinoa flours, now in its 3rd edition.  The watercolor illustrations, are by Diane Robertson, (Karen's mother-in-law)  and alone a worth so much.  This cookbook is a compilation of chef and family recipes that are Gluten Free and is a Benjamin Franklin Award Winner for Editing & Design.

This is just like the hardcover book, which is now out of print, but now you can easily look up a recipe on your computer and print a page.  Find your favorite recipes from Karen's family, according to season, or by your favorite featured chef such as: Charlie Trotter, Tom Douglas, Christopher Kimball and many more.

Some of my favorite weekend recipes include: Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Old Fashioned Cake Donuts, Cinnamon Rolls or my absolute favorite ... Flour Tortillas!

Did someone say ... Gluten Free Flour Tortillas?
I just had to make them for you because they were so easy and a delicious treat.  They are made with Teff and taste like real flour tortillas that I grew up with in Texas.

Karen Robertson lives in Seattle with her family and started the cookbook in 2002 for daughter, Carmen and son, Sam who have Celiac Disease.  She continues to spread awareness by teaching gluten free cooking classes in the Seattle area.  This weekend she will be the guest speaker for the Bellingham Gluten Intolerance Group - Annual Community Awareness Event - October 1 & 2.  She also writes a blog and recipes for Living Without Magazine.  Busy lady! 

We recently had a chance to enjoy coffee and a chat.  I must say there wasn't enough time in the day or coffee to chat as much as we could have about living Gluten Free.  I have a feeling we will be longtime friends.

The Cooking Gluten-Free Cookbook on CD-Rom is $14.99 and can only be purchase via her site at Celiac Publishing - Cooking Gluten-Free. You can see samples of the book and learn more about Karen Robertson. Please tell her that you saw this review on Gluten Free Foodies and she will give you a signed illustrated card.  It makes a great gift so put it on your wish list and buy it for your family and friends this holiday season.  Use the code - GFF (all caps) for the signed illustrated card and for your name to be entered into a drawing on October 31, 2010 for a complimentary copy of the cookbook CD to be used as a gift...perfect just in time for the holidays, don't you think?

Another successful event for the Gluten Free Foodies - Gluten Free Food Drive! We met at Stella's around  noon in our private room and had a great time talking to new Gluten Free Foodies about the best finds in products, restaurants and local happenings.  I was thrilled to see so many new people, some of the "Original GF Foodies or regulars" and the generous Gluten Free food donations for the Kitsap County Food Bank Coalition.

Stella's Pizza and Pasta went all out for us making Gluten Free lasagna, rigatoni, cheesecake, gluten free beer and pizzas.  In fact the first bite taken of the homemade Gluten Free lasagna comment was ... "Oh! Wow! this tastes like authentic Chicago Italian lasagna!" and then there was the rigatoni ... just like mama used to make! 

Let's just say everyone went home with happy tummies and warm hearts after spending the afternoon together.
If you are on your way home and hungry for some great Gluten Free Italian food stop by or call ahead at 360 697 4992 to order yours to go! Don't forget to tell them that you saw it on Gluten Free Foodies!

Look at all the wonderful Gluten Free products that I will be delivering this week to KCFBC.
Thank you to everyone who attended the event, especially Stella's and the staff.
Bravo to a job well done!

Mike Irwin – Gluten Free Runner and Foodie

September 21st, 2010 at 5:40 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie

Mike Irwin - Just before Celiac Disease diagnosis  - 6'4" 125 lbs.
I am constantly amazed at the stories I hear about people.  I am fascinated to hear how their health and strive to find a diagnosis starts at one point and sometimes takes forever to figure out.  I have met so many people in person and online and each story is inspiring to me.  I wanted to share this story with you so that you too will find something in it to motivate you to take care of your health. I find it so interesting to hear the threads of similarity in all of our stories that tie us together and to think something could make us very sick - Gluten.  I recently met Mike Irwin online and began to chat with him on Skype where he told me his story.  Mike was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about a year ago and lives in Fort Nelson, British Columbia Canada.  I asked him how he has been feeling and he said, "I have more better days than bad.  The beast is in the cave!" The beast he is referring to is the result of digesting Gluten. In 2008, after a Spring vacation to Cuba, Mike began to have stomach issues and was very rapidly losing weight.   He went to the doctor for some blood tests, one of which was for Celiac.  He couldn't eat because he was too sick to his stomach (vomiting).   The blood test came back inconclusive for Celiac.  In Canada you need a referral to go to a specialist and it takes time to get on the schedule to get in to see the doctor.  The closest to him is 10 hours away in Edmonton.  As time went on without a clue as to what was making him so sick he continued to lose weight.  Mike is 6 feet 4 inches at the worst and lowest weight was 125 lbs! He was so thin you could see the bones in his cheeks sticking out, his ribs and bones all over his skeleton. By this time it was spring of 2009, he had an Endoscopy and the results were inconclusive because they were done by a general practitioner not by a specialist.  As you can imagine that was upsetting because all he wanted was a diagnosis to begin to do what he needed to do to feel better.  He did more homework and took his medical file to another doctor at the University of Calgary, School of Gastrointestinal Medicine.  This doctor suggested another Endoscopy.  Once it was over the doctor stayed to wake him up to tell him that it was conclusive that he had Celiac.  Even though the doctor could tell during the procedure that he had flattened villi they had to wait for the pathology to confirm.  Both turned out postive for Celiac Disease. Now looking back Mike says he can trace Celiac Disease back to his childhood.  He was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD when he was very young.  He was always very thin, anorexic.  He has had a multitude of symptoms including bad teeth, gas, GERD, bile in his mouth at night, major respiratory problems, joint pain, back pain, chronic anemia, malnutrition (swollen belly from not eating).  I asked him about his family and if anyone else had Celiac Disease or what their health was like?  He said that his dad, 80 yrs old,  has had Type 1 Diabetes since 1936, but had a negative blood tests for Celiac.  A second cousin on his dad's side is positive with Celiac.  On his mom's side of the family, 2 cousins are positive with Celiac.
Mike decided to face the diagnosis of Celiac disease head on and started to learn everything he possibly could.  Fortunately for him, he loves to cook, so he began to learn about all the new flours, products cookbooks and blogs.  I asked him what his favorite meal is today and he said, "Brown rice pasta with olive oil, fresh herbs from his garden and broccoli."  He buys everything organic, if he can't grow it and does not eat out except when he travels.  He makes his own crackers from a recipe he found and uses Namaste flour blend for just about everything.  He says that bread is still the hardest thing to replace but does what he can to make his own. He also likes Mac and Cheese that he makes on his own, not from a box, with the brown rice pasta, Earth Balance butter and grated European cheese.  One of the most important things that he does daily is consume olive oil, which helps him with the inflammation and digestion.  He also takes daily supplements. I asked him about resources in Canada and he said that the Canadian Celiac site is very helpful to find local support groups and publications.  He also says that the Calgary Chapter of the Celiac Association has been very helpful.  He also mentioned that the book Dangerous Grains co-authored by Ron Hoggan M.A. and James Braly, M.D.  was an important find for him so that he could learn more about grains and mycotoxins. In addition his doctor suggested that he start to exercise. Mike began slowly building his strength, gaining weight and is now running in half marathons this year.  He has completed one in May, one in June and he has another half marathon on October 2 in Calgary at the Harvest Festival.  I was so inspired and amazed but had to ask, why half marathons?  Isn't that a bit much? He said it is something to just cross off his bucket list!  Mike said, "When he was literally near death's door, he knew that if he made it through this he had to help others and to get them moving!" Bravo Mike Irwin! I will be cheering for you from WA state on October 2nd!  As we concluded our chat, after 2.5 hours on Skype I asked him if there was anyone he wanted to thank that helped him through this ordeal. Mike Irwin says, " I couldn't of made it through last year, without the help of a lot of people ... My family - Mom and Dad , Rosemarie and Doug, Brother and Sister-in-law, Jim and Zoe All my friends from Vernon BC and Ft. St. John, especially - Jesse, Eric ,Jordan and Troy Kim at the health food store, who helped me from the start. And the others in Ft. Nelson as well My family doctor, Dr Mostert, My GI - Dr Melanie Stapleton from Calgary, Alberta My Respirologists Drs Charlene Fell and Kerri Johansen also from Calgary, Alberta Ron Hoggan and Jax Peters Lowell, your books I've read from cover to cover more than once. David Rocco, La Dolce Vita tought me to love food again! And finally Lance Armstrong, I read "it's not about the bike" again during the depth of my illness." 
Mike crossing the finish line!
 I look forward to hearing about this next chapter in Mike's life and Good Luck in Calgary! If you would like to share your story I would be happy to chat with you.  Please contact me at   Namaste, Lisa     GLUTEN FREE FOODIES for events and Gluten Free lifestyle info.

Today is Celiac Awareness Day and Samuel Gee's Birthday!
Who needs a better reason than to eat your favorite meal and chat about Celiac Disease to celebrate the birthday of Samuel Gee?  Who is Samuel Gee?  He is the person who found the link between Celiac Disease and the Gluten Free Diet.  In 2006, the United States Senate passed the bill S.R. 563 to recognize this day as - Celiac Disease Awareness Day.  To learn more go to - Celiac Sprue Association - Samuel Gee.  The symbol or logo that you see above is for the Celiac Sprue Association.  Tell your friends, family and anyone who wants to learn more about Celiac Disease to visit their site and consider being more involved.

So I am going to celebrate by talking to as many
people as I can today about Celiac Disease ... OK not so different than most days ...
I will indulge a bit with my special treat ...

Flan with Orange, Caramel and Coffee!

I am even going to put a candle in it! What is your special Gluten Free treat today? Please tell me about it in the comment section and how your diagnosis of Celiac Disease and eating Gluten Free has made a difference in your life.

I do have one favor to ask ... please talk to as many people today about Celiac Disease as you can.  There is 1 out of 133 people that have Celiac Disease so you are bound to provide info to someone that either has it or needs more info to get a diagnosis.  Please share this blog posting site or the many others that I have listed on the side bar of this blog.  It will make a difference in someone's life!

Happy Celiac Awareness Day ... Happy Birthday Samuel and Thank you!
