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! :-)
It was my friends birthday and I wanted to make her a cake. She has a dairy allergy and as I wanted a cake that I could also eat (is that so bad?) I needed a dairy and gluten free cake. I had a flip through my new recipe book, ‘The Gluten-free Kitchen’ by Sue Shepherd and was delighted to discover that there was a recipe for such a cake, what Sue calls ‘Decadent Orange Dessert Cake’.
I was slightly concerned at first as a couple of months ago I attempted a cake with whole oranges More >
As mentioned in an older post we recently had an Italian house warming party and as well as the almond cake I was also in charge of making salt and pepper squid. I love salt and pepper squid and since most places don’t make it gluten free I was excited to try my own.
I decided on a recipe from De Costi which I found here. While the salt and pepper is reasonably easy to make it is very time consuming and uses a lot of oil and paper towels. I had to change the oil every 3-4 batches as it got More >
I was given Sue Shepherd’s recipe book, ‘The Gluten-free Kitchen’ for Christmas and have already made two cakes out of it. The book has wonderful photos and easy recipes that don’t involve too many ingredients.
For my Mum’s birthday I decided to make the Banana Hazelnut Cake. I was intrigued to see that the recipe included 150g mashed potato (instead of flour), however the forward of the recipe actually notes not to be alarmed about this unexpected ingredient.
The cake turned out amazing and everyone highly enjoyed it – some even going back for seconds – and you wouldn’t even realise that More >
It was my uncles birthday and quite late in the afternoon we decided we should make a cake for him. He is also a coeliac so I searched on the internet for a quick and easy flourless chocolate cake recipe. I decided on this cake from allrecipes.com.au.
While the cake turned out rather flat (in hind-site I should have used a smaller cake tin) it got the thumbs up from everyone and was demolished very quickly. In the rush of things I forgot to take a photo of the entire cake but there is one of a slice of it below.
I made More >
The other night I was given the task of cooking dinner with chicken and whatever else I could find in the house. I managed to find some bacon, lettuce, eggs, Parmesan cheese and Caesar salad dressing so decided to make a chicken Caesar salad.
The Caesar salad dressing I used was Cardini’s (one of the only gluten free Caesar salad dressing I could find) which you can get in Coles.
All you need to do for the salad is firstly toss the chicken in peri peri seasoning and then cook. Hard boil the eggs and fry the bacon. On some lettuce leaves More >
A couple of years ago my flatmate at the time brought home some rocky road that her work mate had made. Lucky for me my flat mate didn’t like rocky road so she gave it to me. The rocky road had to be the best that I had ever tasted so I asked for the recipe. However, for some reason or another I never got around to making the rocky road. This year though, since I am working on Christmas Eve, I decided to bring something yummy into work for everyone. I decided I would therefore make the rocky road, More >
