You all know I’m not the world’s greatest gluten-free chef, and the recipes I tend to post are a little on the elementary side. But, in attempts to mix things up and give my readers a little something special, I thought I would reach out to Personal Chef and Culinary Nutritionist, Amie Valpone of TheHealthyApple.com.
Amie graciously agreed to submit the below recipe for my Gluten-Free Recipes page. Treat your body like a temple with this clean, healthy dish, and impress your taste buds while you’re at it!
Gluten-Free Creamy Potato Pasta Salad
- 4 large red potatoes
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1/4 pound gluten-free elbow pasta, such as TruRoots brand, cooked & drained
- 1/2 cup Greek plain yogurt
- 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 2 tsp. fresh dill leaves, torn into pieces
- 1/4 cup raw cashews
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1. Place potatoes in a small stockpot; cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium heat and cook until fork-tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; drain and set aside to cool. Cut cooked potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes.
2. Fill a small saucepan with salted water, and bring to a boil. Add frozen peas; cook according to package, then drain. In a large bowl, combine cooked pease, potatoes and elbow pasta. Set aside.
3. In a separate medium mixing bowl, combine Greek yogurt, balsamic vinegar and olive oil; mix well to combine. Fold dressing into potato and pasta mixture. Add red bell pepper, fresh dill, cashews, sea salt and pepper; gently toss to combine.
4. Transfer to a serving bowl and voila! How delicious does this dish look?
