Against the grain
My daughter's just been diagnosed with gluten intolerance and I'm looking for a crackers (savoury biscuits to be eateen with cheese) recipe. She doesn't like any of the store-bought varieties.|
Also, has anybody ever made their own GF sourdough bread? I can't have active yeast and if we could all eat the same things it'd be brilliant...
Thanks in advance!
If you/she are okay with almond flour, there might be recipes on Elana's Pantry
and there are definitely recipes in the book by the same author, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook
. Lots of other recipes both on the site and in the book, for breads, cookies, cakes, etc.
Thanks, it's exactly what I was looking for. :)
Yes, Elana's almond crackers are very good!
If she likes very hearty tasting crackers, like rye, she might like flax. I am munching on homemade flax crackers right now. I made mine in the dehydrator but you can probably make them in the oven as well (there are tutorials on YouTube).
I have made gf crackers, but I didn't have an exact recipe, I was just kind of working by eye. I used a combination of mochiko (sweet rice flour) and instant mashed potato flakes, with eggs, sugar, and salt. I used some italian seasoning in one batch as well. I just mixed them in proportions that "felt" and looked right, and put them in the oven at 450 until they were, well, cracker-y. If you're willing to wing it without exact measurements, give it a shot because I really loved how they came out!
Thanks a lot everyone. It's a real learning curve. We've been dairy free for years but that was easy in comparison.
