I have been asked by many followers, including friends Holly Kimbrell and Olivia Reilly Carter, for Gluten Free recipes. I think more importantly those who need gluten free options need to find substitutions for the ingredients in recipes containing gluten. So here are a few suggestions......
When a recipe calls for Italian or panko breadcrumbs in foods like crab cakes, meatballs etc., try substituting Betty Crocker Potato Buds, some other brands of potato buds contain gluten so make sure you read the label....
When a recipe for crispy chicken or fish cutlets calls for ingredients to make a breading....try grinding Rice Chex in a food processor and coating the chicken or fish with that and then frying.
Finally for any recipe that suggests flouring the protein like steaks to make a crustier outside, try using garbanzo bean flour, flaxseed meal, white rice flour or potato flour...the rice flour and potato flour make a much crispier crust so start with those.
For all you gluten free followers, if there is a specific meal you are craving and would like a gluten free me at and I will work on that recipe and blog it for you...
Hope these tips help!
