Carla’s Gluten Free Shepherd’s Pie (Tomato-Free Allergen-Free)

Allergen-Free Gluten-Free Shepherd's Pie

Since I’m allergic to tomatoes, this gluten free shepherd’s pie recipe is tomato-free. In addition, it calls for a dairy-free mashed potato recipe and is also allergen-free.  While shepherds pie (aka Cottage Pie in Britain) is a delicious meal any day, because it is Irish, it makes a perfect St. Patrick’s Day meal.

Easy Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes (or Traditional)

Allergen Free Dairy Free Gluten Free Mashed Potatoes

This gluten-free dairy-free mashed potatoes recipe is not only easy to make but is delicious; and is made completely allergen-free. They are made without dairy, casein, soy, nuts, or any of the eight major allergens. Instead of peeling the potatoes and cubing them, you boil them whole and the peel just slides off. The main thing is you don’t have to sacrifice on taste. If you are not allergic or intolerant to any of these ingredients, feel free to use butter and cow’s milk. Continue reading “Easy Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes (or Traditional)”

Grain-Free Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies (Allergen-Free)

Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies

Bean flours create higher risen baked goods, but many of the flours create a bitter flavor. One way of getting around this is by using cooked beans. I prefer to use refried black beans. They’re so creamy and not bitter at all. The dark color is perfect for chocolate dishes such as this gluten free brownie recipe. It is dairy-free, gum-free, and grain-free, techinically, as buckwheat is a seed, not a grain. Some refer to buckwheat as pseudograin.

Enjoy this healthier style gluten free recipe as part of my January 2015 Healthy Gluten Free Diet Event. Continue reading “Grain-Free Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies (Allergen-Free)”

Gluten Free Pear Crumble

You can make this gluten free pear crumble recipe much easier by using canned pears. However, fresh pears are full of vitamins and minerals. No matter what flour blend you use, it should out about the same because the recipe calls for very little flour. Note, though, tapioca browns easier, but is chewy, and cornstarch has high crisping qualities, and potato starch with just a little less. I have also provided some holiday garnish suggestions. This recipe can be made allergen-free if you skip the nuts. Continue reading “Gluten Free Pear Crumble”

Fluffy Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits

Fluffy Gluten Free Biscuits

These gluten free buttermilk biscuits turned out amazing! Recently I developed a recipe for a substitute for Gluten Free Bisquick. While everyone really enjoys the recipe and has been raving about it, I found it a little too starchy. So, I improved upon the blend while creating this new gluten free buttermilk biscuits recipe. I used cornstarch as a base instead of potato starch and later added some additional potato starch. I was able to enjoy these biscuits without adding butter, straight from the oven. I hope you enjoy them as much we did. Continue reading “Fluffy Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits”
