Gluten Free Recipes
Looking for a gluten free recipe, whether it is because of general health reasons, or becasue you suffer from gluten intolerance? You’re in the right place!
Some of the recipes here also cater for people with other dietary requirements, including vegetarians and those who are dairy intolerant.
But don’t forget, these recipes can also be enjoyed by those with no dietary requirements. Also, be assured that I have tested most of them on my non-Coeliac family and friends – and I’ve had no complaints so far! :-)
I was going to my parents place down the coast for Christmas drinks and Mum was making mini chive pancakes with sour cream and smoked salmon, a recipe taken from the Coles Christmas magazine. I remembered that I had a sample packet of Vitarium‘s pancake mix in the cupboard and therefore decided to make a few gluten free pancakes for myself.
I made up the pancakes, however added quite a lot more milk than the directions on the packet suggested as they were too thick. I also hadn’t realised that you were supposed to add chives to More >
At Christmas time I always look forward to my Mum’s baking including rum balls, Christmas cake and especially stollen. However since being gluten free I don’t get to indulge in these treats anymore. This year, though, I decided to make gluten free options of everything. I wasn’t going to make stollen as I was a little concerned about the large amount of flour and it therefore not working out, however because I love it so much I decided to give it a go.
My Mum has had her Southern Stollen recipe for years (it is taped together in a couple of More >
The other night I wanted an easy and quick dinner option and thought it would be a good idea to use the BBQ since it finally feels like summer (in Sydney).
I had seen on the menu at a pub the other night chicken and chorizo kebabs on a green salad. Unfortunately I could not eat the dish as the chicken was marinated in something glutenous, however it gave me the idea to make my own kebabs.
Two trips to the shop later (after first realising we had no skewers and then realising there was no gas in the gas bottle) I More >
We recently had an Italian house warming party and I was in charge of making an almond cake. Let me tell you now that the recipe I chose (well my Mum chose, telling me it was a really easy cake to make….) takes a lot of work and makes a rather small cake.
The recipe is taken from The Australian Women’s Weekly Italian Cooking Class Cookbook and the final cake looks pretty spectacular and it also tastes amazing (I would have been very disappointed if it didn’t after all the work I put into it!).
Beware when piping the almond mixture on More >
As discussed in yesterday’s post I decided that as well as making the Vitarium Christmas cake I would try and make one from scratch. The recipe which I used was given to me by my Aunty and it was very easy – almost as easy as making the Vitarium Christmas cake. I left it in the oven for a bit longer than I should have, worried that it wasn’t sticking together properly however once I took it out of the oven and it cooled down it did so.
Compared to the Vitarium cake this Christmas cake is more moist and has a More >
As noted in my Sumo Salad post I really wanted to try the Brown Rice Salad recipe on page 75 of Susie Burrell’s new book, ‘Losing the last 5kg’ so I made it for lunch on Saturday.
The salad is very easy to make, very filling and tastes really good. It takes a little while to prepare as you have to roast the pumpkin and cook the brown rice so I made enough for a couple of lunches this week.
- 1/2-3/4 cup cooked brown rice
- 1 cup roasted diced pumpkin
- 1 small red capsicum, finely chopped
- 2 handfuls baby spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 50g Danish fetta, crumbled
