When you are struggling with a disease like Celiac, Crohn’s and the like, you have to keep an eye on what you eat. Diseases mentioned above require a gluten-free diet among other treatment plans. Here are a few recipes that you can try at home while maintaining your gluten-free diet:

Gluten Free Brownies

Ingredients:

¾ cup almond flour

5 tbsps unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ cup coconut oil

2 eggs

⅔ cup agave

1tsp vanilla extract

½ cup chopped walnuts 

Procedure:

Mix wet ingredients (coconut oil, agave, eggs, vanilla extract) together in a bowl. In another bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (almond flour, cocoa powder, and chopped walnuts). Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients while whisking together. When mixed thoroughly, pour contents in a 8-inch square baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven (350°F or 175°C) for about 30 minutes. Let it cool before slicing.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Ingredients:

1 head cauliflower

1 cup Mozzarella cheese

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese

½ cup Gouda cheese

1 thinly sliced onion

1 cup milk

½ cup breadcrumbs

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Salt and pepper to taste

Procedure:

In a bowl, mix the three cheeses. Cut the head of the cauliflower into bite size pieces. Thoroughly wash the head of a cauliflower and steam it until slightly tender. Cool the steamed cauliflower. In a baking dish, layer the cauliflower, onion, and the three cheese mixture. Pour the milk over the layers. Season it with cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste. Bake in a preheated oven (375°F or 190°C) for approximately 45 minutes.

Gluten-Free Pizza

Ingredients:

2 ½ cups of gluten-free bread flour, extra for dusting

1 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp salt

½ cup semi-skimmed milk

2 tbsps dried yeast

2 ½ tsps sugar

1 egg

3 tbsps Oil

½ tsp baking soda

2 tsps cider vinegar

Toppings:

Basil leaves

1 cup crushed tomatoes

1 clove of garlic

Salt and pepper to taste

½ cup mozzarella cheese 

Procedure:

Preheat oven to 220ºC/425ºF.

Warm up the semi-skimmed milk until lukewarm. Bloom the yeast into the milk with the sugar. Set aside until bubbles start to form. In a bowl, mix the bloomed yeast with the oil and egg. In a separate bowl, carefully, sieve the flour, xanthan gum and salt in a bowl and make a well in the middle. Pour in the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and combine well. Mix together the baking soda and vinegar in a small cup and quickly knead it into the dough. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a damp towel and let it rest for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in a frying pan, sauté garlic in oil and add the stalks of the basil. Add the crushed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cool and set aside.

Once the dough doubled its size, cut it into portions and roll it out using a rolling pin. Ladle in one or two scoops of pizza sauce and scatter the remaining basil leaves. Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 8-12 minutes (depending on the size and thickness of the dough).
