Your Mom’s Favorite Charcuterie Board
I have always loved to write, and over the past year, I found myself growing to love cooking too. I love to share my collection of findings to help anyone with or without allergies have a variety of choices.
When I first was diagnosed with celiac disease, I did not realize the effect it would have on my life. I am now conscious of what I am eating, and what I am putting into my body. Eating healthier has allowed me to feel better. I am never 100% as with celiac disease it is hard to be but I am continuously aiming to be! I strive to find healthy and appealing options and if I can’t do that, I will make my own. I am determined to give those with allergies to gluten a sense of ease but also providing them with a taste just like the original with gluten!
Tonight, we had a late dinner because we both had busy days. I like to aim to use all of my groceries up every time before they go bad—but we all know it doesn’t always work that way. In light of this, having a little bit of everything worked perfectly to make a veggie & meats charcuterie board!
INGREDIENTS I USED:
** Use any ingredients you want! Charcuterie can be made out of anything!
Ham, sliced or diced
Broccoli & cauliflower, sautéed
Carrots & onions, sautéed
Roasted potatoes, petite cut in halves
Gluten free bread & butter, butter is optional
** Feel free to do this in any order you’d like. This is just what worked best for me!
Grab your bag of petite red potatoes and cut them in half. It doesn’t matter what size they are, just based on preference! Make sure after cutting them you wash them very well to make for a better potato in the end. Toss them in avocado oil with salt, pepper, onion powder & garlic powder. Stir around to make sure all potatoes are coated. Then I put the potatoes in the air fryer for at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. ** if you don’t own an air fryer, put in the oven at 400 degrees and set the timer for 20-35 minutes depending on preference of taste. Make sure to flip the potatoes halfway through if doing it this way.
For the sake of time I grabbed a bag of fresh broccoli and cauliflower that I can just pop in the microwave. I would much rather a stove top meal over a microwave one but for the sake of space and time, this was the best option. I popped that in the microwave for 3 minutes.
While those are cooking, I grabbed a skillet and sprayed a little avocado oil and let it heat up. I quickly cut up a few carrots and onions and tossed the onions on first. I let them cook for about 1 minute and then add the carrots. This is when I add my seasonings to add flavor, my personal favorites are salt, lemon pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Cook veggies until browned.
While your veggies are finishing up, I sliced up some ham and turkey as well as bread. I used butter as a garnish as well.
After that you put it all together and make your own charcuterie masterpiece. Check out mine for tonight!
My mom, a woman of many talents, finds joy in cooking herself, that when I was growing up, there were too many options at the dinner table. Years later to find out, I have to be pickier than I was back then! Be smart build a charcuterie with your leftovers, and create yourself own charcuterie masterpiece or competition!
