Gluten and grain free bread rolls

IMG_7103

I’m not gluten free or even much of bread eater but I do love these gluten and grain free bread rolls in the Everyday Cooking for Thermomix Families TM5 cookbook.

You need 300g of raw almonds for this recipe but my group leader gave me a great tip. Her son is gluten free and absolutely loves these bread rolls! One day she didn’t have enough almonds so she used half almonds and half pumpkin seeds and they still came out great! She’s even successfully tried the recipe with a mix of sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds to make it nut free 🙂

The recipe doesn’t require a lot of ingredients but one of them is gluten free baking powder. You can make your own gluten free baking powder using the recipe in the Basic Cookbook.

The dough is made in 5 quick steps and then ready to form into rolls. It is a sticky dough but very easy to work with. The recipe says it makes 12 portions but I’ve made 16 rolls that were still a decent size. And if you have any leftover rolls you can store them in the freezer.

Gluten free baking powder

IMG_7862It is so easy to make your own gluten free baking powder with your Thermomix.

The recipe in the Basic Cookbook only needs rice flour, bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar. There’s even a recipe to make your own rice flour. So really you need rice, not rice flour.

After milling your own rice flour you just need to place 50g into the bowl and add 50g bicarb soda and100g cream of tartar. Mix 10 sec on speed 5 and you’re done.

How easy is that?!

Torta caprese

IMG_5160The Torta Caprese is the flourless almond cake in the Basic Cookbook and can also be made gluten free. I love how it highlights the milling function of the Thermomix and if you want, you can substitute the almonds with any nuts of your choice, like hazelnuts or macadamia nuts.

This cake is very indulgent and is definitely a crowd pleaser. Bake it in a square tin and cut it into squares if you have a group to feed or bake it in a heart shaped tin for something a bit more romantic like I did back on Valentine’s Day 🙂

Mini impossible quiche

These gluten free mini quiches from the Quirky Cooking cookbook can also be made dairy free and are so easy to make!

Made with carrot, zucchini and frozen corn kernels and peas this recipe is a great way to get more veggies into those ‘fussy eaters’.

They are a perfect lunch box filler, small snack or a great dish to make when you need to take finger food to a party. Get the cookbook here.
