Low-Carbohydrate Stuffed Mushrooms "IndyWatch Feed Food"

I love stuffed mushrooms. This past Thanksgiving I had an old high school friend coming for the meal who was on a very restricted-carbohydrate diet. So I got to thinking about how I could make them without the crackers. Having a garden has taught me how to be creative with whats available. This dish turned out really well.

Ingredients

  • 10 large crimini mushrooms, plus one small mushroom
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 stick organic celery
  • 1 medium to large organic onion
  • unrefined sea salt
  • garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Wash the mushrooms and dry them with a paper towel. Cut off the ends of the stems and discard. Remove the rest of the stems and put aside. Take off the white film around where the stems were to make room for lots of stuffing. Place the large mushrooms in a baking pan.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Dice the onion and put it in a frying pan with 2 T butter and a generous dash of salt and garlic powder. Cook for 5-7 minutes until soft.
  4. Dice the stems and the remaining mushroom and add them to the onions with another 2 T butter. Cook until soft, again 5-7 minutes.
  5. Dice the celery. Turn off the heat under the frying pan and add the celery.
  6. Mix together well. Stuff the mushrooms. Cook in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the mushrooms look soft.
  7. Place on a serving platter but allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving. This recipe can be doubled or tripled for more people.

There's Perhaps An 80% Chance That Your Bloating Woes Aren't Related To Gluten "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Are you scared of gluten?

Are you avoiding it because gluten containing foods leave you feeling bloated or otherwise unwell?

It's probably not the gluten.

Adding to a growing pile of evidence that it's not the gluten that's causing your symptoms (no one's doubting the symptoms, it's more a matter of figuring out where they're coming from) is this recently published, albeit small, study highlighting a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled challenge of twenty patients without celiac disease or wheat allergy who were suspected of having non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), and who had all experienced relief from their symptoms following a gluten-free diet.

Every one of the study's participants went through four separate periods of double-blinded challenges - two with gluten, and two without, in random order. They were asked to consume two muffins per day which did or did not contain 11g of gluten for 4 days followed by a 3 day washout all the while continuing to eat their otherwise gluten free diet. They simultaneously tracked their gastrointestinal symptoms and were asked their thoughts as to whether they were consuming gluten containing muffins or not during each treatment. All subjects diets were also analyzed after the fact for their FODMAP content.

Looking at the participants self-reported symptoms scores, they were worst after the challenge with the placebo (gluten-free) muffins - significantly so even - with a p value of 0.012. Of the 20 subjects, only 20% (4) correctly identified the two periods they received gluten containing muffins. Of course 4 people of 20 correctly identifying which muffins contained gluten may well occur simply by chance and consequently conclusions can't be drawn on their basis.

All this to say, taking those 4 as real data points, this study suggests that 80% of people with unexplained food-related discomfort aren't reacting to gluten, and though people's bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain, fatigue, and other symptoms, are real, what's causing them is not yet clear....

Ajitsuke Tamago (Ramen Eggs) "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Ajitsuke Tamago (Ramen Eggs)
An important component of a good bowl of ramen is the ramen egg, aka ajitsuke tamago, which is a marinated boiled egg. The eggs are boiled until somewhere between a soft boil and a hard boil where the whites are set and the yolks are partially set, custard like, rather than runny or hard. To get this amazing custard like textured yolk you boil the eggs for 6-7 minutes and then plunge them into a cold water bath to stop the cooking process. The eggs are peeled after cooling and then they are marinated in a salty and sweet mixture of soy sauce, sake, mirin and sugar until they have absorbed the flavour and turned a light to dark brown colour. Once ready these ajitsuke tamago are perfect in a steaming bowl of ramen or for breakfast, lunch, a snack, in a salad, etc. Given how easy it is to make these eggs, you'll want to have a few on hand in the fridge all the time!
