Want Bread Recipes (Multiple Food Intolerances/allergies)
0

6 posts in this topic

Help please. I'm somewhat new to gluten-free eating (about 6 months). I would like some tried-and-true bread recipes that omit the following problem foods:

Gluten

Eggs

Soy

Casein (dairy)

Corn

Rice

Potato

Oats are OK for me, as are nuts.

I am having a hard time because so many of the gluten-free recipes use corn, rice and potato, which I cannot have, and also egg. I have not even come across a decent all-purpose gluten-free flour that does not use one of my problem foods—I have resorted to grinding my own flours instead. I'm having difficulty getting the texture right, I think, because many of the recipes use egg, and I am having to try something else (like chia seeds). Nothing seems to come out quite right. Yes, I do know gluten-free baking tends to be a bit denser, and I'm OK with that. I just don't think what I'm making is coming out right in the end. And I can't compare it to store-bought gluten-free baked goods because all of those have my problem foods in them, so I've never eaten them. I can't even get Chebe bread to come out quite right, I think, because of avoiding eggs and dairy (I'm guessing my Chebe isn't right ... since I haven't had it before and can't have it according to the written instructions, I have no real comparison). I've asked around elsewhere, but no one ever responds.

Do you like fougasse? I adore it. You can actually shape it.

2 T chia seeds

1/2 c water

1 c teff flour

1 c sorghum flour

1 c tapioca flour

1/2 c arrowroot

1/4 c flax meal

1 t sea salt

1 t xanthan gum

1 envelope (2 3/4 t) active dry yeast

1 1/2 c room temp filtered water

3 T olive oil

2 T maple syrup

coarse sea salt for sprinkling

1. Soak chia seeds in the 1/2 c water for at least 15 min. Preheat oven to 450F and place a water bath on the bottom rack or oven floor (water bath - place some water into a pan). Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and dust generously with one of the above flours.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, arrowroot, flax, salt and xanthan.

3. In a separate large mixing bowl (or bowl of a stand mixer), dissolve yeast in room temp water. Add the olive oil and syrup. Just as the yeast begins to foam and feed on the syrup, about 3 minutes, add coombined dry ingredients and chia seeds with their liquid. Mix together until you have a soft dough (you can use the paddle attachment on mixer or by hand).

4. Generously dust work surface with flour. Gently shape into an oval. Transfer to sheet. Flatten to about 1" thick while maintaining an oval, leaf-like shape.

5. Shape like a fougasse. Shape into a ladder with floured hands. (You can just shape into a round if you desire and make a cut down the midline - this makes it artisinal and beautiful.)

6. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and place in hot oven. Immediately reduce temp to 425F and bake 1 hour and 10 minutes until golden brown and crusty. *(I find it takes less time than that.)

I have many other recipes that I think would suit, too.

This is from the same book as above - methods, etc. similar - "Gluten-Free and Vegan-Free Bread" by Jennifer Katzinger. - NOTE: She feels it is not necessary to allow breads to rise as they hit the oven at a high temp then the temp is decreased.

2 T chia seeds

1/2 c water

1 c teff flour

1 c tapioca flour

1/2 c quinoa flour

1/2 c millet flour

1/2 c arrowroot

1/4 c flax meal

1 t sea salt

1 t xanthan fum

1 envelope (2 3/4 t) active dry yeast

1 1/2 c room temp filtered water

3 T olive oil

2 T maple syrup

1. Soak chia seeds in the 1/2 c water for at least 15 min. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a sheet pan or line with parchment paper.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, arrowroot, flax, salt and xanthan.

3. In separate large bowl, dissolve yeast in room temp water. Add oil and syrup. Just as the yeast begins to foam and feed on the syrup, about 3 minutes, add the combined dry ingredients and the chia seeds with their soaking liquid. Mix thoroughly but just until the dough holds together.

4. In a work surface generously dusted with quinoa flour, turn out dough and gently form into a round boule shape. Place on prepared pan and score with a semicircle. Bake 2 hours and 40 minutes, until golden brown and crusty. *Mine take less time - watch closely.

Thanks for the recipes! I will give them a try.

I recommend the second one first. I also have an excellent recipe for breadsticks and focaccia if you want.

    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
