At the risk of offending-though I think it's pretty tame-by accident I bought a gluten free loaf the other day, and it was really odd tasting.
It had a kind of gluey texture studded with bits of what resembled tiny, just undercooked rice.
As vegetables are probably my favorite things on earth, I'd imagine creative gluten free can be great. However, as I would had I needed to skirt cheese or other foods, I'd probably steer clear of faux products.
Inappropriate? Can you make decent stuff w/ mock ingredients.
