If You Could Eat Anything...

19 posts in this topic

Hey Guys!

While there seems to be 1000's of gluten-free recipes, it seems hard to find excellent ones.

I am making it my mission to figure out how to make gluten-free food that is as good as the next guys....

so here is my question...

Is there something you are dying to eat but there is no good recipe for?

For instance, I am hungry for some gluten free jalapeno poppers, but the few

recipes I have seen don't look great.

What about you?

What are you hungry for?

THANKS!

Crysty

I would love it if someone could make a gluten free, dairy free, soy free Krispy Kreme donut that tasted just like the original. I only ate those donuts on certain Sundays and sometimes on vacation, but it would be nice to know it could be done.

I wish we could buy gluten-free puff pastry and phyllo dough. I've seen recipes but they look daunting.

I have discovered so many naturally gluten-free foods that I rarely or never ate before being forced to go gluten-free: polenta, quinoa, so many kinds of rice, amaranth, rice wrappers, collard leaves as wrappers, risotto... I find that there are so many naturally gluten-free recipes that are DELICIOUS! Much of the world eats a naturally gluten-free diet anyway. And now I cook much more, so I enjoy better food, in general. My husband would tell you the same thing.

That said, if you are really pursuing excellent gluten-free food, I'd suggest looking at some of the gluten-free blogs. Gluten Free Girl would be a good place to start.

They ARE daunting. I have successfully made recipes for nearly everything now but do wish that these two things were available. Oh, and buttery croissants. Of course, ciabatta and other crusty chewy breads.

Wow! you set the bar high! I would love a krispy creme too! Great idea...

Thanks for the suggestions. I have been reading some great gluten-free blogs, and observing their ways :)

What do you make with rice paper? I just made a dumpling recipe with rice flour, but I really want to start using rice paper.

I just read that France just made its first gluten-free eclair.

This could be good news for us if it catches on :D

I've made those, actually, and they were very good. The same choux pastry is used for profiteroles (cream puffs).

Just thought of another - big, puffy yeast doughnuts. Not the cake ones - those are easy.

The only thing I make with rice paper is actually one of my favorite meals. I use it as a wrap made with breast meat chicken, avocado and grated carrots. It's all in the dipping sauce though, usually a mixture of sweet and spicy, depending on my mood. It takes a little practice to work with the rice paper, but so worth it!!!!

I love Thai Spring rolls about 100 different ways; with ground pork, shrimp, chicken, duck, scallops, lobster, ground chicken, beef, lots of veg and lemongrass and vermicelli, toasted peanuts, black sesame seeds, etc.

Though I am not a fan of Martha Stewart by any stretch, this is a good basic shrimp wrap recipe from her website (though it is by Donna Hay):

Another interesting way is this rice-paper wrapped salmon.

Thanks, I just bought some yesterday. And I do have lots of leftovers I can shove in them.

Excellent! Hope you like it. It is a different way to prepare salmon and use the rice paper.

I agree with many of the types of breads mentioned, but I'd love pizza rolls again. I was talking with my daughter last night about this thread and thought of that. I know the real version is junk, but I loved them every once in awhile. It wouldn't be my top pick, but wondering if anyone has a recipe for them.

I would love to see some good Arabic. Like maybe really good pita with shwarma. And a good gnocchi recipe. Indian naan. And of course....cinnabon.

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
