Gluten free Recipes
A gluten free diet excludes wheat and grains such as barley and rye, so many of our most popular carbohydrates such as bread, pasta and rice are a no-go. We’ve got plenty of alternatives like Deliciously Ella’s gluten free sweet potato brownies, our chia, date and walnut slice and caramelized pear and buckwheat pudding cake which bring new life to cooking for someone with an intolerance.
Gluten causes health problems in sufferers of celiac disease, which accounts for about 1% of the British population. Many people find that they are allergy-prone and complain of a ‘wheat belly’, with bread and pasta often labelled as a major culprit. This has resulted in a doubling of gluten free products in the UK which makes catering for celiacs a lot easier.
We have a wide range of tempting recipes if you are thinking of restricting your gluten intake or have celiac disease. You can still enjoy your favourite foods, like our gluten free pizza margherita, that is also dairy free.
If you fancy a gluten free meat dish how about trying our recipe for Normandy pork casserole; it’s the perfect comfort food. Or if you prefer something vegetarian then quinoa is a fantastic alternative to pasta or rice and it’s also a superfood – our curried quinoa with apple and spinach is a great option.
Our recipe for gluten free chicken in tomatoes and red wine with a warm bean salad is a great option for a relaxed dinner party and also means that you wont have to cook two separate meals if someone you’re expecting is a celiac.
There are also a great range of desserts and puddings that are gluten free including sweet potato brownies, which make the perfect afternoon tea, or chestnut cake with purple berries which is a real showstopper.
We have plenty more gluten free recipes that’ll make life a lot easier if you’ve got an intolerance, or are cooking for a loved one who does.
The good news is there are now plenty of gluten-free recipes for our favourite meals. By swapping wheat, barley and rye for alternatives such as mashed potato and flour made from buckwheat, chestnut, tapioca, corn and rice, you can create great tasting, allergy-friendly dishes that also have greater nutritional value - who could ask for more?
