Some Really Tasty Gluten Free Diet Recipes

June 16, 2010 · Posted in Gluten Free Foods List

You are on the lookout for some great gluten free diet recipes ? Please check out my personal favorites below.

People suffering from celiac disease or gluten intolerance as well as some children and adults with Type 1 diabetes are required are required to remove all foods and products that contain gluten from their menu plan.

Gluten is a composite of 2 proteins that is found in wheat, rye, barley, durum, einkorn, graham, semolina, spelt, kamut, and triticale. Commercial oats may also contain gluten due to cross contamination in processing. So, in other words, recipes that use flour are not gluten-free.


Is there a way to adapt your recipes?



You can adapt most foods and recipes to become gluten-free. Here are some guidelines for gluten-free cooking:

  • Focus only on the foods in the recipe that need to be adapted. It’s a good idea to choose recipes with very little flour or gluten-containing items. Sometimes the flour can even be omitted. (for example, breading or flouring meats can easily be omitted for most recipes.)
  • Think of what you can substitute or omit when you look at a recipe. Maybe mark problem ingredients in a recipe.
  • Check out some of the gluten free cook books that are available in your bookstore and look for similar recipes. Compare proportions: Flour and other ingredients that act as thickeners are compared to the amount of liquids in the recipe. Keep proportions nearly the same for your recipe. Given the same amount of liquid, it takes less starch to thicken than flour.
  • Avoid recipes that rely on convenience foods. Learn to make some basic sauces and gravies that are often used in casseroles and soups.
  • Use commercial or home-made gluten-free substitutes. For example, gluten-free macaroni, bread and corn tortillas.
