Gluten Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook: Giveaway

To gear up for Celiac Disease Awareness Month in October, we’re giving away two copies of Gluten Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook- read on for more details.

Leslie Cerier is a master of recipes using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Known as The Organic Gourmet, Leslie has shown us time and again that eating consciously does not have to mean hours and hours of time at the market or in the kitchen.

Her newest book, Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook takes eating mindfully to a new level. This lovely book is filled with tips for which ingredients are the most earth-friendly (and gluten free) and where to find them. Leslie uses a wide variety of grains and legumes paired with seasonal produce for dishes like African-Spiced Teff and Lentil Stew with Collard Greens and Yams and Shiitake and Kale Lasagna with Marinated Dried Tomatoes and Chèvre.

We have two copies of this great book to giveaway to two lucky readers. In addition to the book, we’ll be throwing in a package of Quinoa and Teff to make eating consciously even easier.

How to Enter:
1. Visit Leslie’s website at and choose a recipe that you would like to try. Come back here and let me know which recipe sounds divine by posting it in the comments.

That’s it- we’re keeping it really simple this week. Winners will be chosen by random selection from all comments posted by Thursday, September 30th at Midnight.
