Why gluten free as a recipe tag? Because some people very dear to me need to be gluten free for health reasons. Although cooking for them has its challenges, it doesn’t have to be too hard. If you need to cook a gluten free meal for someone, I hope you can use some ideas from this site.
Please note that only recipes with a gluten free tag can be considered gluten free. But for many recipes, it doesn’t take too much to manipulate the recipe to make it gluten free. To keep food gluten free, it is important that you read the label on every ingredient to make sure it is gluten free. Gluten can be found in surprising places. For example, pure icing sugar is gluten free, while icing mixture tends to contain gluten. You will also find that gluten can vary by different brands, and cooking chocolate is a perfect example of this. Some contain gluten, some don’t. Again, be sure to read the packet. Anything containing wheat, barley, rye or oats is not gluten free. Also, keep your cooking workspace free of glutinous contaminants.
