I would say that beyond just general questions and commiseration, the biggest theme in the emails I get from you guys is: “What are your favorite gluten free foods?” And this morning in the shower (where I get all my best ideas) I started compiling a list.
We’ll start with my Top Five, Dream Team, Cream of the Crop, ABSOLUTE Faves
1. Udi’s GF Whole Grain Bread
I know you saw this coming, but I absolutely love it. The texture is amazing. You don’t have to toast it. It holds up to a sandwich. The nutrition facts don’t make me cringe. It doesn’t have a strange taste or lingering after taste. It’s just good dang bread!
2. Tinkyada GF Brown Rice pasta
And it’s not just because that bunny is cute.
The first time I bought this pasta, I thought the packaging was weird. It wasn’t sleek and modern, but what it was is informative. And true. It’s not mushy, it is consistent, and it’s classic. Parrish rarely notices a difference. It is my go-to pasta, and I absolutely love it! They killed it in this recipe!
3. Kinnikinnick GF Panko Bread Crumbs
These little babies have seriously changed my life! Recipes that I thought I would never be able to make again, are suddenly open! There is absolutely no discernable difference to gluten-y panko, and they make the BEST crispy covering!! Best displayed by the croquettes AND these pork chops!
While it’s pretty expensive for that little box, GF Bisquick is da’ bomb! Like panko, it allowed me to make recipes that I didn’t think I would ever be able to have before, like sugar dumplins (recipe click here). PLUS it makes the crispiest waffles. I add just a touch of vanilla to the batter! And who could forget these?!
5. Arrowhead Mills Gluten free Steel Cut Oats
I absolutely LOVE the texture of steel cut oats. Crunchy, nutty, and full of fiber, steel cut oats are my current favorite breakfast. I definitely prefer them to rolled oats. My favorite topping is definitely this one!
So there you have it! Top Five What would be in your top five? Leave a comment and I’ll compile the list!
