Gluten & Wheat Free Food

Being on a gluten free or wheat free diet is not easy, especially when you are eating out in restaurants or round friends or relatives who don’t know what you can and can’t eat.

However whilst at home, and as long as you have some basic ingredients, it is fairly easy to adapt most recipes to make them gluten and wheat free.

Please find below a list of gluten and wheat free items that are useful to have in stock:

Kallo, Just Bouillon- stock cubes available in a variety of flavours to make gravies and sauces

Cornflour to thicken sauces and gravies

Crosse & Blackwell Browning- gravy browning that can be used to add colour to gravies as the stock cubes listed above tend to make an insipid looking gravy

Doves, gluten free/wheat free plain white flour- it can replace wheat flour in all recipes except those for conventional yeast cookery

Super Cook, baking powder- can be added to the above flour to make self raising flour

Rice wine vinegar- as malt vinegar is not suitable for a gluten free diet

Meridian Foods, Tamari soya sauce- can be used in sauces and oriental dishes

Discovery, gluten free corn tortillas- useful for enchiladas, fajitas and wraps

Selection of wheat free/gluten free pasta such as spaghetti, lasagne, conchiglie, farfalle, fusilli

Sharwood’s, rice noodles- can be used in soups and served with oriental dishes in place of egg noodles which contain both wheat and gluten

Trufree, pizza bases

Trufree, herb and onion crackers
