For this go-round of Adopt of Gluten-Free Blogger I chose Alta of Tasty Eats At Home. Alta keeps popping in over here with nice things to say about my recipes, so I figured it’s my turn to gush over hers.
It was fun scrolling through her site trying to choose which recipe to make. She’s quite an adventurous cook. She participates in both Daring Bakers and Daring Cooks. Plus she has a Kids in the Kitchen series where she cooks dishes with her step-kids, and you’d be surprised what they want to try sometimes: Turtle Soup or Braised Sea Cucumber anyone? Alta does have quite a list of vegetarian recipes too though. Despite the heat, I decided to fire up the oven to make this Zucchini and Sun-Dried Tomato Casserole. Zucchinis are plentiful right now, and I’m a sucker for sun-dried tomatoes.
I loved all the fresh herbs, especially the fresh sage. There were mouthwatering smells coming out of the oven. I did use regular cheddar cheese instead of Daiya. I think the casserole would also be great with fresh mozzarella on top. Or maybe gruyere.
My almond topping did not end up as crumbly as Alta’s. Maybe it has to do with the brand? Either way, doesn’t really matter much; it was still a tasty addition on top. Mike said he really enjoyed it.
If you can stand the heat, give this casserole a shot. Head over to Alta’s site to get the recipe.
