gluten-free Ravioli & Pierogies

Recommended Posts

I wanted to let everyone know about the absolutely AMAZING gluten free ravioli and pierogies I recently had. You can't tell the difference at all. They are sooooooo good!

They are by a company called Conte's.

http://www.contespasta.com/

So far I have tried the cheese ravioli, the potato and onion pierogies and am going to get the spinach ravioli this weekend.

I bought it at the Gluten Free Market in Fair Lawn, NJ. I found out they also carry it at Decicco's in Ardsley, NY (which is perfect since it is 10 mins. from me, rather than 50 mins. away in NJ); and they also carry it at Get Healthy America in Plainview, NY. I'm sure there are other places that have it but those are the ones in my general vicinity that I researched.

These are definately one of those products that you check the package 10 times as you're eating it because you just can't believe it's gluten free :)

I just have to say I am so jealous :P I will have to hunt these down in PA somewhere, or make a day trip to one of your places. For Pierogies it is worth it :)

I'll still stick with my Kaybee pyrogies since I doubt i'd be able to find the ones you mention in Canada ;)

I love the spinach raviolis and the stuffed shells. These are also being sold in Decicco's in New City NY (rockland county) for 9.99 and in Uncle Guissipi's in East Meadow NY for 10.99.

Are they in the Uncle Giussipi's in Manhassett? I want to go check out Get Healthy America in Plainview anyway (the place on LI I had previously posted that I found had it), because they have blintzes; but my inlaws live in Manhassett so that would be even easier when we're out there.

I didn't know Decicco's had a location in Rockland. Good to know. I'm minutes from the Tappan Zee Bridge (on the Westchester side) so that is alwaus a good alternative if the one in Ardsley is out of stock.

I wish they had these here in Texas!

I clicked on the link and I saw something funny I had to comment on, the location of the restaurant is on East Wheat Road! watch out for road cross contamination!

Does anyone have a recipe for these that doesn't include egg or dairy? I was given such a recipe at a food allergy forum. Alas, I failed to save the recipe and now the site is down. Daughter loved both, but we can't have dairy or eggs. I could do the pierogies stuffed with potato and rice cheese and the ravioli with plain meat.

Thanks!

Are all of their products gluten free?

No, all of their products are not gluten free.

How do you know which of their products are gluten free?

The gluten free ones are clearly labeled gluten free.

Here's my recipe for Pelmini dough. I think Pelmini and Pierogi are the same thing, basically. This isn't perfect, but my kids, even the gluten eating ones, eat them up. We stuff ours with ground turkey, finely chopped onion, salt and pepper. I have also made them and frozen them before boiling. They're really easy to pull out of the freezer and make up for a quick dinner.

1-1/4 C Brown Rice Flour

1/2 C Potato Starch

1/4 C Tapioca Flour

generous 2-1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum

1 Tbs. oil

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4+ C Water

Sift dry ingredients 3 times. Add oil and water. You will probably need to add a little more water, but do it slowly. Stir until dough forms a ball. Make sure it is not dry! It should be smooth and almost creamy. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out on board dusted with Potato starch.

I am so stoked, becaue Conte's has provided our support group with some samples for our next meeting. After reading this thread it will be hard not to tear into them and start eating!
