My February Favourites!

Last month, I decided to start a new feature on my blog where at the end of each month I will blog about the gluten free delights that have tickled my fancy! Also, I will link all the easy, gluten free recipes I’ve rustled up this month, just in case you’ve missed any! [Click here for my January favourites]

Pink Panther Wafers

 

I’d never seen these before but I just couldn’t resist buying them since I absolutely adore the Pink Panther [cue theme music]. They’re so delicious and cheap, that they make a great snack when you’re wanting your sugar fix. Plus, because they’re so tasty, even my friends who don’t have to eat gluten free really like them too!

Home-made Yorkshire Puddings:

 

The other day, me and ‘wheat’ Pete [my wheat loving housemate] had a craving for some Yorkshire puddings to go alongside our mini roast dinner. But, because Mike had taken the car, we weren’t able to drive to Asda to pick up some Dietary Specials amazing pre-made Yorkshire puddings – cue my nightmare! So ‘wheat’ Pete kindly offered to make some gluten free Yorkshire puddings for me and it pains me to say this, but they’re the nicest home made gluten free Yorkshire puddings I’ve had! Plus he also makes fantastic giant Yorkshire Puddings too! So I shall be popping his recipe up real soon so you can all try them for yourselves!

Nando’s:

It’s no secret that I love Nando’s and I doubt I’m not the only one. Every time someone mentions the word ‘Nando’s’ on twitter, that’s it, we all want a Nando’s. I ended up having a Nando’s the day before my birthday with my good friend Harper, where we shared a whole chicken between us! Then I went the day after on my actual birthday with my family – a bit greedy I know, but I’m sure you’d all do the same!

D.S Ciabatta Rolls:

 

You all know em’ and you all love em’, the amazing Dietary Specials Ciabatta Rolls! I’ve been having them a lot this month whilst I embark on a healthy eating diet! Lately, I’ve been using them to make tomato bruschetta, paninis and healthy sandwiches! What I love about these is how they taste just like the real thing! If you can’t find these amazing ciabatta rolls in your local supermarket, you can now buy them on their new on-line shop!

Gluten Free Ferrero Rochers

 

One of my favourite recipes this month was my gluten free Ferrero Rochers that I made for a valentines day inspired treat. Before my diagnosis, I would quite happily much through a whole tray of Ferrero Rochers without giving a second thought but I had to say a gut wrenching goodbye when I was diagnosed with coeliac disease. But all that changed this month when I made my first gluten free Ferrero Rochers that are so cheap and easy to make!

Amoy ‘Straight to Wok’ Noodles:

 

I came across these noodles in Sainsburys and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw they were gluten free! Usually, I have to get my rice noodles from the Chinese supermarket in China Town, Manchester, but I like the fact I can still pick up a pack of noodles from my local supermarket! I ended up using them when I made my own gluten free stir fry sauce [which I will blog about asap] and loved them so much!

Gluten Free Stuffed Crust Pizza

One of the things I missed when I was diagnosed with coeliac disease was god damn pizza, and it looks like I’m not the only one either! Since tweeting about Dominos doing gluten free pizza in other countries but the UK, it was pretty obvious I wasn’t the only one that was missing beloved pizza either!

Although some of us are lucky to have places near by that cater for us fabulous coeliacs when it comes to gluten free pizza [I’ve provided a list here] we’re also lucky that the amazing Dietary Specials do the most amazing frozen gluten free Italian pizza that makes you check around a 100 times to make sure you’ve not accidently picked up a gluten laden pizza instead [mistakes have happend!].

Many moons ago I was doing the usual day dreaming of pizza [like you do], when I realised how much I missed stuffed crust pizza! I used to always order it whenever I went to Pizza Hut and although I am so thankful that I can have some gluten free pizza, sometimes I longed for stuffed crust! So I had a brain wave – I was going to attempt to make my own stuffed crust pizza! *cue fan fare*

Ingredients:

Easy Gluten Free Pizza Base:

  • 225g Gluten Free Flour [I used Glutafin White]
  • 1 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum [If you’re flour doesn’t include it]
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Caster Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Yeast
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 tablespoons of Oil
  • 130g Water
  • Mozzarella

Tasty Pizza Sauce: 

  • 1 box/tin/jar of Tomato Passata [which is a posh way of saying ‘sieved tomatoes’]
  • 1 small Onion [finely chopped]
  • 1 cube of Garlic [finely chopped]
  • Salt and Pepper to season
  • 1 teaspoon of Oregano

Method:

 

  1. Pre heat the oven at 200°C
  2. First follow the instructions for my Tasty Pizza Sauce
  3. Then make your pizza dough using my Easy Pizza Dough Recipe
  4. Roll out your dough and prick it the base with a fork [I find this helps to make it crispy] and add your sliced Mozzarella  [use as much as you want, I used it sparingly and when I make it again, I’ll use more] 
  5. Now fold the dough over the pieces of cheese making sure you press the edges down so it doesn’t fold back up when it’s cooking! 
  6. Add the Tasty Pizza Sauce 
  7. Add your cheese and pop in the oven for 10/15 minutes! 
  8. And as if by magic, you have gluten free stuffed crust pizza!
