'how to cook gluten-free' on Serious Eats
Breakfast is a place where carbohydrates reign supreme. Bagels, toast, muffins, and doughnuts are the mainstays of the first meal of the day. And when you introduce a gluten allergy into the mix, breakfast becomes a bit more of a challenge. Our own Elizabeth Barbone has come up with a solution to this breakfast pastry challenge with her Powdered Sugar Doughnut Muffins from How to Cook Gluten-Free.
This Gluten-Free Roasted Tomato Pizza forgoes tomato sauce in favor of slowly roasted grape tomatoes. They top the par-baked crust alongside caramelized onions, artichoke hearts, and fresh mozzarella for a pie that tastes fresh and very light, almost more flatbread than pizza.
Just because gluten can't be a part of your life doesn't mean you have to live without pizza. Our own gluten-free guru Elizabeth Barbone has created a rice flour based Yeast-Raised Pizza Crust that can take on any topping combo without cracking or drying out, the way so many GF adaptations do.
Is it just us or is cornbread deceptively tricky? On paper it reads simple enough but it can easily be too dry or too caky, overly sweet or not sweet enough. With all of those variables, it seems as though eliminating the gluten would be a recipe for disaster, but somehow our go-to gluten-free gal Elizabeth Barbone has created a bang-up recipe for Gluten-Free Cornbread in her latest, How to Cook Gluten-Free. Perfectly moist and springy, you'd never suspect that this cornbread was made with rice flour and xanthan gum in place of all-purpose wheat flour.
A life without bread is not a life that we'd like to experience. Think about it: no sandwiches, no toast, no breadcrumbs. It really would be a tragedy. Thankfully our own Elizabeth Barbone, author of How to Cook Gluten-Free has come up with a solution for those who are wheat-intolerant. And if it weren't enough that her White Sandwich Bread is gluten-free, it's also dairy-free to boot.
