Gluten Free Lasagne Noodles In Canada?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I recently got into a relationship with woman who I care for very much and she has celiac disease. I really would love to cook my lasagne for her, but obviously she can't eat wheat pasta. We have found a few brown rice pasta lasagne noodle manufacturers, but they are horrible.

Does anyone know of a really good gluten free Lasagne noodle? What brand is it? What type? Do you know if they sell or ship to Canada?

Thanks for any help on this,

Paul

I live in BC and I buy Tinkyada lasagna noodles - either at Safeway or our local health food store. Make sure you don't over cook them and no one will even notice they're gluten free.

However, don't drain them in your regular gluten-y colander and make sure all pots & pans are well scrubbed to avoid cross contamination. Enjoy !

I'll second the support for Tinkyada. We buy them at a local independent grocery store. We are in a suburb of Toronto.

Elf's comments about cross-contamination are bang on, as well.

Thanks guys.

I wasn't so much worried about the cross contamination, because I always clean things thuroughly. I just want a noodle that has the same consistancy, texture and taste as a regular wheat pasta noodle.

Any tips on how to cook the noodles so that I can achieve this effect?

Yep, Tinkyada is the one I'd recommend also. They are made in Canada too.

As for how to cook them, the package has cooking instructions. But, I'd think the lasagna noodles would be easier than say spaghetti or elbows, to get right. Simply because lasagna noodles aren't fully cooked in water anyway. Whenever I've made them, I haven't even looked at the instructions. Just get them to that sorta softened, half-cooked stage like you would wheat lasagna. They should turn out great. Like any lasagna, the sauce, cheese and so forth also hide a multitude of sins.

The comments about cross-contamination are quite right. It's practically impossible to get all the gluten off a colander. And whatever you do, don't use wooden utensils.

I use Tinkyada lasagna noodles, too (I'm in Canada). I've found that if I cook the lasagna noodles for just 10 minutes (no longer), they don't get too soft when you bake the lasagna. One thing I found; one time I froze one half of the pre-baked lasagna to eat at a later date; and when I re-heated the frozen lasagna, the noodles did get pretty soft. It was still good, though. But now I just put the other uneaten half in the fridge, and eat the next day.

Also, I have pots that I only use for cooking gluten-free foods in, so there is no chance of cross contamination.

Hey you guys,

I want to thank you for all your suggestions and tips. Now I need one more little piece of help if you could. I've been trying to locate a store that actually sells the Tinkyada brand noodles in my area, but I'm having trouble. I live in the Greater Vancouver Area of BC. Do any of you know of a store where I can buy them. I tried going to Choices Market this morning, but they don't carry the Tinkyada brand.

Thanks for any help,

Paul

If all else fails, you can mail order from El Peto in Ontario. Not sure if you've ever heard of them; but I mail order things like gluten-free hamburger buns and gluten-free bread from them occasionally. But, they also sell Tinkyada pasta.
