Gluten Free Recipe Apps?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi there! Newbie to the forum. 

 

Does anyone know any good gluten free recipe apps? Have friends coming over after Christmas and we need some good Christmasy recipes which I can download.

 

Love any that you've tried and feel worked for you.

Sorry, I don't know of any apps, but on this forum, many folks have posted great recipes.  There are plenty of blogs out there too!  I try to avoid the blog recipes that require different blends of gluten-free flours.  

 

I do plenty of baking of goodies and have converted most of my old gluten-containing recipes to gluten-free using Pamela's gluten-free flour.  I try to avoid any all purpose flour that has beans in it. 

 

Looking for desserts?  There's a gluten-free gram cracker crumb manufacturer that will allow you to make your own cheesecake or ice cream cakes using a springform pan.  Find a cheesecake recipe on Bon Appetite and you'll be sure to get raves and they are easy to make!

 

Attended a party last night.  I brought ham rolls (ham, cream cheese, green onions or aspargus stalks), and crispy bacon wrapped dates stuffed with almonds.  So many options!

Also, if you can give us an idea of what kind of dishes you want to prepare, we can point you in the direction of some of our favorites :)

Just something simple and quick - we'll probably do a roast so that's ok, but it would be nice to have some gluten free stuffing or similar and maybe something for dessert?

Have you ever made risotto?  It is actually quite simple, but they make gluten-free box mixes that are really good, I use lundberg brand.  Says gluten free prominently on the box.  

 

A nice holiday side dish is au gratin potatoes, just use a regular recipe, and use corn starch in the sauce instead of flour.  I can vouch that this works well.  If you are in a gluten-eating kitchen, I would buy a new container of corn starch (its cheap) since all that powdery stuff floofs all over and you don't want to feed your friend gluten by accident if they are sensitive.  Here is a good recipe:  http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/cheesy-au-gratin-potatoes/f2665027-8485-4153-bdea-da9c427a4d44    (I have made that with parmesean cheese, too.  And bacon/cheddar)

 

Mashed potatoes are naturally gluten-free as well.  Just boil peeled potatoes that are cut up, until soft.  Mash with butter, milk/cream, and salt and pepper.  You can make them garlic mashed potatoes by boiling whole garlic cloves with it and mashing them with the potatoes.  

 

Something I like to serve with fancy roasts is haricots verts- or fresh french green beans.  You can steam/boil them for a few minutes, then sautee them with garlic and butter in a pan.  Be careful to not burn the garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. 

 

If you want to make gluten-free stuffing, you can use your regular recipe and use gluten-free bread.  I would cut up the bread into cubes and toast it in the oven before adding it into the mix because gluten-free bread can get mooshy.  If your grocer carries Udis brand that works well.  It is kept in the freezer and has a yellow/blue label.  But any gluten-free bread you find should work fine.  Also in the stuffing recipe, it may call for broth, and not all broths are gluten free.  Look for stock in the square containers, a lot of those gourmet brands will say "gluten free" on the box.  Here is the stuffing recipe I made for Thanksgiving, it is in a slow cooker but it would work just as well  in the oven:

And for dessert, I know the perfect chocolate-lovers recipe.  Flourless chocolate cake.  Make it with the ganace on top like it has here:   http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/flourless-chocolate-cake-recipe  and serve with sliced strawberries.  If your friend is a sensitive celiac they may not be comfortable eating something made in the same pan as gluten baked goods, you may want to ask them first.   I have my mother in law make everything in disposable foil pans when I come over, it solves part of that problem.

 

Another less-involved dessert idea would be a sundae bar, really good if there are a lot of people.  Get ice cream, bananas, chocolate syrup, various fruit, and let everyone go to town making what they want.  

 

I would like a banana split now after talking about that!  Hope all my ideas helped ya :)

I used Rudi's stuffing this year for Thanksgiving and made the second recipe on the list, the Laura's whatever. The apple in it seemed a little weird when I was making it, but I did it anyway and it turned out perfect. Of course, you have to find Rudi's stuffing, which I found in all of my local health food stores, but none of the regular grocery stores. http://www.rudisbakery.com/gluten-free/blog/category/gluten-free-savory-herb-stuffing-recipes/

 

Other than stuffing, I mostly just make the same everything I've always made for the holidays with the exception of green bean casserole which I simply skip. It's just meat + veggies + gravy + stuffing. The only issue there is the stuffing. Dessert is as easy as a crustless pumpkin pie or cheesecake.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
