Churros (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC/avlxyz

What can I say, I love churros. I miss going being able to indulge in the warm delight of fresh churros. It is amazing that so many foods can be converted easily to gluten-free, and lucky for me, this is one of them. Traditional Churros from Spain are not made with cinnamon, but I love cinnamon  churros. However, I am also including the more traditional way of eating churros, a recipe for chocolate dipping sauce.

Churro Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup butter or butter substitute
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • vegetable or olive oil
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ⅓ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Prepare to fry the churros by heating oil in a pan (1 to 1&½ inches) to 360 degrees F.
  2. To make churro dough, heat water, margarine and salt to rolling boil in 3-quart saucepan; stir in flour.
  3. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute; remove from heat.
  4.  Beat eggs all at once; continue beating until smooth and then add to saucepan while

  5. Spoon mixture into cake decorators' tube with large star tip ( the kind use to decorate cakes).
  6. Squeeze 4-inch strips of dough into hot oil.
  7. Fry 3 or 4 strips at a time until golden brown, turning once, about 2 minutes on each side.
  8. Drain on paper towels. (Mix Sugar and the optional cinnamon); roll churros in sugar or put churros and sugar mix in medium sterile paper bag and shake.

Chocolate Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
  • 4 ounces gluten-free dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups milk or milk substitute
  • 1 Tablespoon arrowroot
  • 4 Tablespoon sugar
Directions:
  1. Place the chocolate and half the milk in a pan and heat, stirring until the chocolate has melted.
  2. Dissolve the arrowroot in the remaining milk and whisk into the chocolate with the sugar.
  3. Cook on low heat, whisking constantly, until the chocolate thickens, about five minutes.
  4. Add extra arrowroot if it doesn't start to thicken after 5 minutes.
  5. Remove and whisk smooth.
  6. Pour and server in cups or bowls for dunking churros.
  7. Do not pour over churros, but use the mix for dunking churros.
  8. Serve warm.

The distillation process does prevent the gluten protein from passing through the filtration process. However for people who are gluten intolerant like I am, the cross contamination that occurs prior to distillation is still present after distillation. Therefore while the protein molecule isn't...

I just do a variety of gluten free foods. Many because someone doesn't like cheese on his potatoes or someone won't eat something else. I figure they won't starve if all they like is the turkey and the canned cranberry or the sweet potatoes and the apple sauce.

Did the doctor diagnose you with anything? It sounds like diverticulitis. Usually treated with 10 days of antibiotics. Infection can improve, but if it isn't 100% cleared, it can flare up again. I just had a flare up that didn't improve after 10 days on meds. Ended up in the hospital for 5 d...

People who do not have celiac disease, but who have celiac-like symptoms that improve on a gluten-free diet are prime candidates for a condition called non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). Researchers don't know much about the condition. There are no biomarkers, so they can't just do a blood te...
