Gluten Free Santa Fe

I was recently in Santa Fe, New Mexico and wanted to share a couple of my favorite spots to eat in town

Le Pod- They describe themselves as “a hip, retro Airstream eatery on wheels”. This little food truck serves Gluten Free Crepes made out of buckwheat flour, I had two kinds the a fruit kind with strawberries  and the savory one with sweet potato, spaghetti squash pecans, and maple syrup             open M-F from 11-4, located near the plaza

India Palace- for Santa Fe being such a small town, I surprised by how extremely excellent the Indian Food was here.
Located near the plaza

Joe’s Dinner- They focus on having many gluten free items, and are very accommodating. I had a gluten free veggie pizza and had them leave off the cheese and it was still excellent! Located at 2801 Rodeo Rd Santa Fe, NM 87507

Tia Sophia’s Café- This little café was the perfect place to go for breakfast, they are extremely accommodating, I tend to make up my own order which was a green salad with side of guacamole, rice and beans, all very excellent! Located near the plaza

A place I didn’t have a chance to check out but all the locals rave about is Revolutionary Bakery, which has lots of gluten free baked goods.

Also make sure to check out Oleaceae : Best Olive Oil and Vinegars on the Planet  located near the plaza at 100 E San Francisco St Santa Fe, NM 87501

My other not to be missed places in Santa Fe is Ten Thousand Waves- one of the best spas you will ever go to.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Every year I wait for it to be rhubarb season, strawberries and rhubarb are one of my absolute favorite combinations! I love making crisps cause they are so much easier and less time consuming than pies, and the taste is always phenomenal. The chia seed and buckwheat groats really add something special. This is the perfect dish to bring to friends.

 3 – 8oz. containers of Ripe Strawberries sliced

1 LB. Rhubarb (about 2 big stalks) cut into chunks

2 TBLS. Arrowroot Powder

APPLE PANCAKE
The smell of making this is sure to win over any guests; this is one of my favorite things to make for them. They will be saying “What smells soooo good!” I even win over my mom with this one.

 ¼ c. Agave or Honey
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
¼ tsp sea salt
 ½ c Bob Red Mill’s Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
 ½ tsp. xanthan gum
 ½ c. Almond Milk
4 TBLS, Coconut Oil
2 Tart apples, green or red, I love pink lady’s, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl combine eggs, salt, flour, xanthan gum, and milk, beat until batter is mostly smooth.

In a large 9-10 inch heavy oven proof frying pan, (I like to use cast iron) over medium heat, melt coconut oil, turning pan to cover sides. Add apples and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in agave and add cinnamon and stir, sauté for another 3-5 minutes, till apples turn soft.

Pour batter over apples into pan and bake 20-25 minutes or until puffed above sides of the pan and lightly browned. Remove by flipping upside down onto a serving platter (apples and cinnamon will be on top). Serve Immediately

Makes 2 Servings
