5 posts in this topic

please bakers i need your help,

 

does anyone have any really easy recipes for flatbread, tortilla, or pittas- im not really bothered about baking a proper loaf. just need something dead quick and easy.

im rubbish at baking and just bought some different flours, got rice,brown rice, maize, chickpea and the baking powder and stuff. the only thing is -no eggs, ive read that you can use apple sauce as a replacement.

any ideas welcome lol- i just need something that remotely resembles bread!!!

Wraps:

 

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup water or milk

2 Tbsp flax moistened (I haven't tried it without eggs)

dash salt

 

warm fry pan.

Add butter or oil

Add some batter and tip if you want it spread thin.

Toast lightly on each side.

Eat.

 

It takes about 5 minutes.

 

Other idea look for grainless muffins on the internet.  I make mine with nut flour I make in a food processor.  It satisfies my bread craving.

She can't do eggs.   :unsure:

 

Okay, do you have available, as an egg substitute, some flaxseed ground up, or some chia seed that you can soak in water, or some plain, gluten free unsweetened psyllium ?   Otherwise can you find gluten free buckwheat (you can grind buckwheat seeds in a coffee grinder to make flour) or gluten free tapioca or gluten free amaranth or quinoa ?  All of these "sticky" type flour ingredients can be used as part of egg substitutes in gluten free baking. 

 

Gluten free flatbread pancake

 

3 heaping tablespoons gluten free flours (preferably straight buckwheat, or  1/2 buckwheat 1/2 other "sticky" type of gluten freee flour, or 1/3 each buckwheat, chickpea, potato starch)

pinch salt

pinch baking soda

some chia seed soaked in a little cold water is better for this, about a teaspoon of chia to a tablespoon of water, to make a "gel" 

1/2 teaspoon vinegar

enough water to make a pancake type batter of the above

optional spices (a pinch of cumin is nice) 

tablespoon oil, preferably olive oil

 

 

mix the above ingredients, adding enough water to make a thick batter,  then cook in oil in a hot pan, makes 2 small or one big flatbread

The best skillet for breads is usually a well-seasoned cast iron that you can use stove top or in the oven at high temps.  I use mine for everything from roasting chicken to biscuits to cornbread to buns to cinnamon rolls to scallion pancakes to tortillas...

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
