For participation in my first "What's for Dinner? Wednesday," I am going to just give one basic quick-and-dirty idea for an easy dinner: soup and a sandwich. Throw in a salad, too, if you feel like it!
Tonight I had a grilled-cheese sandwich with Manchego cheese (purchased at New Seasons) made with Angeline's Just Right White Rice Bread (see my bread review here). I always butter the bread and grill the sandwich open-faced on a cast-iron skillet. This bread gets nice and golden brown when cooked this way. I served this lovely yet simple sandwich with Progresso New England Clam Chowder soup. I have read many a soup label at the store, and Progresso is one of the very few brands that thickens its chowder with corn starch rather than wheat flour. The only down side to this soup for me is that it contains MSG.
Was this a healthy meal? No. Was it quick and delicious? Yes.
Here is an idea for a dairy-free alternative: make a BLT on Ener G Tapioca bread. Serve with Amy's split-pea soup. This meal feels like a luxurious feast if it has been months or years since you have had a BLT. Sandwiches are a rare commodity for the gluten-free!
