This recipe comes to us from Lin Goldkrantz.

Ingredients:
1 pound white cheese (preferably Colombian cheese)
1½ cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt

Directions:
Grind the cheese. Mix the cheese with the cornstarch, eggs, brown sugar and salt. Make little balls, the size of a golf ball, and put into medium-hot vegetable oil and fry slowly. After a few minutes increase temperature and fry them until they are golden brown. When they are ready place them on paper towels to drain the oil. Makes 15 buñuelos.

Awesome!! I can't wait to try it. The Columbian diet has many corn-based 'breads' for breakfast that are great for the Gluten Free Diet. There's another recipe (if you can find it) called Almohadanas that is similar to this recipe and they are great for Gluten Free Egg McMuffin type breakfasts.

And if you ever have the chance to travel to the beautiful country of Colombia they sell a packaged Buneulo mix that is totally Gluten Free. It incorporates flour from Yucca. It is awesome!!! I also find Colombia to be one of the easiest places to visit and eat Gluten Free. It is a corn-based food culture.

I've tried these before from a Columbian bakery and they were tasty. I would like to try this recipe, but I'm skeptical about all of the corn starch being the base. Are you sure there's no flour or did you mean corn flour and less corn starch maybe?

Thanks so much, friends! JMG, I'll try to get hold of that licorice, almost everything I read gives it glowing reviews. I miss Bertie Bassets licorice (it contains wheat) so it will be nice to have some licorice again. Thanks Whitepaw for those ideas, I must admit I'm getting rather fed u...

Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps some...

Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well. When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI. I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful. Then I was...

@scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life. ...

I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I a...
