I love waffles, and I really wanted a great gluten free waffle, so I bought a new waffle maker. One of those really deep Belgian Waffle kinds. But I let it sit for a couple of weeks in the cupboard, because I wasn’t really sure which flour blend to use to make waffles. Continue reading

Gluten Free Bread Alternative – Gluten Free Tortillas with Potato Starch

It’s amazing to me how many gluten free recipes you can find if you’re willing to step outside your culture. Koreans have mung bean pancakes, Mexicans have corn tortillas, Indians have lentil dosas, and I’ve discovered a new treasure trove of gluten free. Jewish Passover Recipes!! I haven’t really looked into it, but apparently Jewish people don’t eat wheat during Passover. So cool. They’ve been not eating wheat for so long, that they’ve come up with some amazing gluten free substitutions for bread. And since I’m on a quest for gluten free bread this week, I’ve borrowed from this Ancient culture. I love this recipe, I’m calling it a tortilla, because tortilla sells at our house, but I guess it’s actually a crepe (and it’ll be called a crepe when my mom visits. My mom loves crepes). It’s fast, easy to make and uses ingredients that aren’t too hard to find. I whipped up the whole thing in a blender and poured it into a lightly greased frying pan. Easy Peasy.

Gluten Free, Grain Free Cashew Flour Pancakes

I am incredibly happy. I have finally found a grain free pancake recipe that I LOVE!! When I was a little kid my dad would make pancakes from scratch. Amazing fluffy, sweet pancakes. And we didn’t eat them with cheap old table syrup. We’d eat them with butter and lemon juice and a little bit of icing sugar. Continue reading

Gluten Free Mung Bean Pancakes

On Monday I invented mung bean pancakes. I had ground mung beans to try out in my continuing grain free waffle experiment, but the flour was so soft and beautiful I decided to make pancakes instead. They weren’t quite what I was hoping for. Fantastic texture, but the taste just wasn’t pancakey enough. Too savory. So I turned to Google. Surely someone else has had the idea of making mung bean pancakes and did it better than I did.

I was right. Someone else had beat me to it. A whole country of someone elses. The Koreans. The next day I found out that I’d been outdone by an entire continent. They’re called Chillas in India and a similar recpipe made from black lentils is called Dosa in Sri Lanka. These savory, crispy, amazing pancakes are brought to you by the ingenuity of Asia.

Flourless Mock Bran Waffles

In my quest to make a waffle that I can use a substitute for flavorless toast, I discovered a mock bran muffin waffle. If the thing you miss most being gluten free is starting your day with the, um, unique flavor and texture of a bran muffin, you might enjoy this easy flourless waffle made with flax meal.
I don’t particularly enjoy bran or anything with a branny texture, but I managed to get one of these down with a generous amount of butter and homemade jam.
I paired it with carrot juice because it just seemed right.

Gluten Free Peanut Flour Waffles

I’ve been experimenting with flourless waffles trying to find an inexpensive, flavorless substitute for gluten free toast. I’ve tried peanut butter and almonds and cashews, but in Bangkok peanut butter and almonds and cashews are really expensive. Finally I realized that I could use peanuts the same way I’ve been trying to use nuts and peanut butter. And for some reason, peanuts here are really cheap. So I now have an abundance of peanutty waffles in the freezer ready to reheat in the waffle maker. These aren’t the flavorless toast success I was hoping for, you can really taste the peanut in these, but they’d be a good base for a chicken satay and peanut sauce sandwich and what could be better for peanut butter and jelly than a peanut waffle.
