Lamb Stew with Mushrooms and Red Wine

Years ago, I fell in love with a lamb stew recipe from cookbook author, Ivy Manning. Her recipe for Guinness Irish Stew became one of my March menu staples. I’ve made her recipe, overflowing with tender cubes of lamb and a medley of roasted root vegetables, nearly every year since she originally published it on her blog. But after my Hashimoto’s diagnosis, when I pulled the sheet out of my recipe binder, I had to pause. Beer and flour were two of the key ingredients. Both contain gluten.

When it comes to pursuing a thyroid-friendly diet, gluten is the #1 no-no. The gluten-thyroid connection is so strong that many experts recommend across-the-board gluten elimination for anyone with an autoimmune thyroid condition like Graves’ or Hashimoto’s.

Avoiding gluten is important because the molecular protein structure is nearly identical to that of the thyroid. Eating it can trick the immune system into triggering and worsening its attack on the thyroid gland. Gluten also increases intestinal permeability, which is linked to autoimmune disease.

As I scanned the list of ingredients in Ivy’s recipe, I decided to figure out a way to renovate this beloved family favorite in a way that we could eat without guilt, compromise, or side effects. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Enjoy!
