Vegan Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

Blueberry cobbler- a taste of summer.

Fresh blueberries = summer. And lucky for me these indigo-hued gems are not only gluten-free and chock full of antioxidants (every celiac goddess needs fistfuls of antioxidants, you know) but they're pretty much everything-free. So that shoots them right to the top of a certain allergy-prone goddess' Yum List. I've been plopping them into smoothies, scattering them in bowls of buckwheat flakes and simply munching on them straight from the colander. Ah. Blueberry heaven.

Insert hazy slo-mo flashback

Once upon a time- in the innocent and carefree days of living merely gluten-free- I used to make a delectable (and ultra-easy!) Summer Blueberry Crisp. And Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins to die for. Click on those recipes for some serious berry indulgence. Go ahead. I won't mind. I'll wait. I won't be jealous. Well. Maybe just a wee bit jealous, now that I am gluten and casein-free. Not to mention temporarily egg, soy, lemon, nut, legume, blah blah blah free.

Smash cut to: my tiny blue-tiled cocina

A note about how this works- my recipe amounts here are relative. And flexible. The thing is- with this kind of lots-of-things-free recipe, you wing it. You experiment. You use the ingredients that agree with you. If you use sugar, add brown sugar. If you do eggs and feel like throwing in a large happy free-range organic egg- do it, Darling. Why not?

Life is short.

I want you to be happy. I want you to enjoy your blueberries. Fall will be here before you know it.

Vegan blueberry YUM.

Vegan Blueberry Cobbler Recipe


As I mentioned above- use your own favorite ingredients. I've written the basic recipe with choices.

Ingredients:

1 pint fresh organic blueberries, rinsed, tossed in a drizzle of raw agave nectar
1/2 cup sorghum flour- or your favorite gluten-free flour mix
1/2 teaspoon of fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3-4 tablespoons raw agave nectar, to taste (or your favorite sweetener, to taste)
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup vanilla soy, hemp, nut, or rice milk
1 teaspoon bourbon vanilla

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly oil an 8x8-inch baking dish.

Pour the blueberries into the prepared baking dish.

In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a whisk.

Combine the wet ingredients in a large measuring cup and pour into the dry mix.

Stir together to form a batter- if the batter appears too dry, add more a little more liquid one spoonful at a time. Add a tad more oil if you prefer more fat, as well.

Pour the batter- or drop by spoonfuls - onto the blueberries. Bake in the center of a pre-heated oven till the blueberries are bubbling and the top is firm and golden. At high altitude, this took about 30 minutes- start checking at 20 to 25 minutes if you are at lower altitude; and check the center with a wooden pick to make sure the batter is cooked through, if you need to.

This cobbler is best eaten warm- it's more fragile than a cobbler baked with eggs, so it falls apart easily, though the taste is good. If you do save some of it for later, I suggest reheating it briefly, to warm it.

Makes 4-6 servings.

Enjoy sugary treats in moderation. 
Gluten-Free Goddess advises consuming 
no more than 2 tablespoons of sugar a day. 


Karina's Notes:


Recipe may be doubled; I might add an additional 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder if I doubled it. Use a larger pan, of course.
Next time I will try Ener-G powdered egg replacer. I've been experimenting with it, and it seems to work well in these types of recipes. I would add replacer for 1 egg in this recipe.

To shave prep time, use your favorite all-purpose gluten-free baking mix and skip the leavening, salt and xanthan gum.
For vegans who are not wheat-free, use your favorite all-purpose flour in this recipe and skip the xanthan gum.

Gluten-Free Goddess Pasta Frittata with Kale

An Italian Classic - Updated. Today I offer you a simple recipe spun from the magic of leftover gluten-free spaghetti and eggs- a creamy, light frittata. Perfect for the weekend. Or when you're simply too tired to cook. Or you have nothing in the fridge but a carton of eggs, half a bag of kale salad and last night's leftover cooked spaghetti. It's one of those intuitive, spontaneous recipes I've pulled out of thin air, so many times. For dairy-free folks, the "cheese" pictured in this version was a vegan "mozzarella" (my current favorite is Vegan Gourmet). But if you prefer using dairy- select one or two of your favorite Italian organic cheeses. I've also made this yummy dish using goat cheese (and roasted red peppers!), and another time I tried a blend of fresh mozzarella and shaved Parmesan. It's a very versatile recipe. Celebrate Spring. Have fun with it! XOX Karina

Gluten-Free Baking Tips + Substitutions

Need wheat-free gluten-free baking tips? Help is Here. Here's what works- and what doesn't- in quirky Gluten-Free Baking and Substitution Land. From Karina, Gluten-Free Goddess®. Baking Substitutions for Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free and More Notes on GF Flours: Gluten-free non-wheat flours generally fall into three basic weights- light starch, all-purpose medium, or heavier whole grain. A blend of medium and heavy flours with some starch mixed in to lighten, tenderize, and help bind the batter or dough works best, and tastes best (too much starch can result in a gummy texture). Light, starchy GF flours include sweet rice flour, white rice flour, and the ubiquitous gluten-free starches- tapioca starch, cornstarch, potato starch (NOT potato flour, which is whole different animal) and arrowroot starch. Medium flours are akin to 'all purpose flour'- these include sorghum flour, certified gluten-free oat flour, and superfine brown rice flour. If you cannot find sorg

Gluten-Free Goddess Flourless Chocolate Cake

Ah, flourless chocolate cake. The perfect rich dessert. Forgive the hyperbole. But I just can't help it. This is rich, sexy chocolate deliciousness on a plate. And such an easy recipe, especially if you use a food processor to do the work. Serve this to non-gluten-free folks with no apologies. None. Zip. Nada. And for gluten-free folks? Hand out seconds (we deserve it, don't we?). And the best part is- the recipe is inherently gluten-free and wheat-free. Always has been. No substitutions. No funny stuff. This is the same flourless chocolate cake I've been making for decades. It never contained flour. The only thing I've tweaked post-celiac diagnosis is adding more coffee and vanilla. Just because. And PS: See below why I make this recipe in a food processor- thanks to Bobby Flay. Karina xo

Gluten-Free Goddess Lemon Yogurt Cake

Luscious Lemon Cake So  I've been jonesing for a cake laced with citrus- not too sweet and not too light. A cake with character and heft.  Something akin to a lovely simple cake I remember liking as a child, a store bought bakery cake called Louisiana Ring made by Freihofer's. The cake featured a hint of orange. The day I decided to bake, I did not have oranges in the pantry- but I did have some lemons, organic Greek yogurt, and plenty of blanched almond flour.  And this simple home baked lemon cake was born.  In time for Spring. Love, Karina xo

Gluten-Free Goddess Quinoa Breakfast Cake

Gluten-Free Goddess Quinoa Breakfast Cake. Tender and sweet. There are some days (okay, I confess) I eat a brownie for breakfast. And not just a brownie. A tender, dark chocolate melt-in-your-mouth  Gluten-Free Goddess Brownie . A brownie to delight in. A brownie to savor. A brownie even gluten-eaters would covet. Is it a nutritious choice? Um, probably not. Except as food for the soul. And sometimes, let’s face it. The soul needs chocolate.  But this morning there was a trendy new box of quinoa flakes perched on the kitchen counter. And a fresh bag of plump seedless raisins nearby. I leaned against the counter's edge and sipped my morning cup of java. I started daydreaming about cake. Maybe a carrot cake. With cinnamon. I knew what I had to do. Quinoa was calling to me. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a fab ancient faux grain (it's actually a fruit seed) that is high in protein and naturally gluten-free, and lucky for cereal lovers, it turns out quinoa flakes make a satisfying

Gluten-Free Goddess Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

A classic cookie made gluten-free. I suppose you could argue that one oatmeal cookie recipe is enough. I mean, how many oatmeal cookie recipes does a person need? To this I answer, at least two. Why? Well, first you have one with raisins (my oatmeal raisin cookies here ). Raisins give oatmeal cookies that old school chewy sneaky nutrition boost. They're old fashioned and comfy cozy. Kinda like spending one of those Saturday afternoons at your Aunt Martha's house, chillin'. Watching Mr. Rogers and laying on the floor with a pile of coloring books. Coloring outside the lines with a beat up box of Crayolas. Wishing the silver crayon was more than a lonely nub. And right at that nub lamenting moment she'd bring you a plate of cookies. Truth is, I never had an Aunt Martha. But I did have a chain smoking platinum blond babysitter who liked martinis a little too much. Or maybe it was gin and tonic. There was ice in the glass. If I was lucky enough to scro

Gluten-Free Goddess Brownies- The Best

Why bake a gluten-free brownie from scratch and not a mix? While baking mixes are perfectly acceptable in a pinch, and no doubt a boon to busy cooks on a gluten-free diet (well, honestly, who isn't busy, preoccupied, overwhelmed, and anxious these days, I ask you?), your taste buds will tell you why. In a heart beat, Darling. A dark chocolate brownie made from scratch is deeply delicious and decadent. Impressive, even. Company worthy. Dare I say, date night worthy. I'm not kidding. This brownie recipe is swoon inducing. (You know what they say about chocolate.)  But here's the best part. Throwing this recipe together takes only a few minutes longer than opening up a box of mix. In fact, you can whip up these luscious gooey babies in a mere ten minutes. In less time than it takes you to scan your daily dose of cute animals IG feed.  Seriously.  So what is more rewarding? Watching baby donkeys frolic on Instagram or stirring together this rich, tender, dark chocolat
