Gluten free recipes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
On Saturday night, my work is organising a fundraising thing which will be a nice break from the meetings we will be having all weekend.

Now we know that there will be a couple of people that have celiac disease and so I have been looking for recipes to that we can cater to them.

Does anyone have any recipes that are easy to make and are delicious? Gluten free bread is horrible!

I have found some recipes but I wondered if there are any tried and true from any of you?

Thanks!

My memory isn't what it used to be but I believe there was a fairly long thread about this with recipes not too long ago. Do a search and you should be able to come up with the thread.

For a sweet snack www.NamasteFoods.com has a brownie mix that is very good. This brand is in some gro stores and health food stores.

If you are looking for a main dish, simply bake chicken brushed with natural honey, salt and pepper. Wild rice mixed with carrots or broccoli is a good side. www.glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com is full of good recipes, many are simple.

Gail works at a bakery that makes gluten free breads. I don't recall her mentioning that their breads tasted terrible so maybe she could help you out with some recipes or tips?

Also, you must be very very careful with cross contamination. Separate work areas (counters or times) for gluten free and regular foods and completely separate dishes - not so much as a knife or rag used to wipe areas shared.
While I'm not sure how much inflammation that minuet contamination would cause in a person, it's probably better to be extra careful.

I have been doing GF for 17 yrs now ... back when I started most of it tasted bad but today many of the mixes and breads are YUMMY..

I do not have recipes in my head for yummys

I know in ChCh there's at least one good bakery that my friend goes to often, and she's celiac. there are a lot of mixes available now in the supermarkets too, so I think it would be fairly easy to whip up a couple of options. I do know the GF foods are more expensive.
We have a friend here on a GF diet, and I've made him a few things for dinner, and it wasn't that hard.
Rice paper rolls are tasty and easy for something savoury. Nice finger-food option.
If you can get a hold of a GF sponge cake mix you can make GF lamingtons for a sweet (with GF icing sugar too).
People will appreciate the effort for sure, and if you make a GF option, everyone else can eat it too!
