9 {Gorgeously} Gluten Free Things I’ve been Loving This July

Oh July! What beautiful weather you’ve brought us. This month also brought me a lot of new goodies to try! Here are some of my favourties:

1. Gluten Free Hobnobs!

They’re here, they’re here! The Hobnobs are here! They are as delicious as you think they are! They’re pretty expensive, I’m not going to lie but as a one off tasty treat, they’re amazing! I picked these up from Waitrose. You can also get them in plain!

2. Honest Burger.

Always in my favourites is Honest Burger. This time we checked out the new one on Tottenham Court Road. Classic Order: Honest Burger with a GF bun, fries and a cheeky side of onion rings to share with the BF. No need to eat again for a week!

3. Pizza Express Margherita Pizza.

The new pizza express bases maybe like gold dust to find, but once you get one…you’ll never want to buy anything else again. These bases are delicious, I say base because who wants a cheese and tomato pizza. I like to pimp mine up with pepperoni or with spinach and an egg like the one above. They are really thin, and have a really soft texture like proper restaurant style!

4. Cannelloni.

These delightful cannelloni came directly from the allergy and free from show 2016, from Honest Eats!

Allergy and Free From Show London 2016 | A {Gorgeously} Gluten Free Review

A really simple recipe! My boyfriend made a a white sauce, I made a garlic tomato sauce. Sauté garlic and a whole big bag of spinach, chop and add into a bowl with a tub of ricotta, a beaten egg and chilli and season. Stuff the cannelloni. Add the tomato sauce to the base of a dish. Add the cannelloni in one layer, then top with the white sauce and some mozzarella. Bake for about 30 minutes at 200°C.

5. Whole Foods Picnic!

Whole Foods is an amazing place to spend £20 each on a picnic.  The salad boxes are done by weight and damn those dolmades are heavy! Shared among friends we also have the delightful organic blue corn chips and the best guac I’ve ever tasted. Dessert were these tasty peanut blondies from the Free From Bakehouse.

6. Home made stir fry.

There is nothing nicer than a tasty wholesome homemade dinner, I used my new Kikkomans Tamari gluten free soy sauce, to make this tasty sweet chilli chicken noodle bowl. Made with a whole lotta leftover veggies, chillies, lemons and soy sauce.

7. Deliciously Ella Brunch.

The sausages and eggs don’t feature in Deliciously Ella’s cook book but these gorgeous homemade baked beans, and hash browns do. Super easy and super tasty. These feature in Ella’s first cookbook.

8. Afternoon Tea at the Palace

The Historic Palaces have a great selection of gluten free cakes available. I enjoyed this gorgeous carrot cake at Kensington Palace after a Sunday stroll around the palace and gardens.

9. Nutri-brex

Who doesn’t love Nutri-brex? They’re wholesome, healthy and tasty! And…who knew what tasty things you could do with them…pancakes, banana bread, granola. Gone are the days of “Weetabix”, milk and sugar.

Free From Bakewell Tart: Asda Magazine Recipe

I found this lovely recipe when flicking through the June 2014 Asda magazine!

The recipe doesn’t specifically state Gluten Free Flour but its an easy substitute! (I guess you could use normal dairy butter if you wanted too as well)

So I’ve typed it all out so its easier to read but I must reinforce that this isn’t my recipe!

“Crisp pastry, raspberry name and a soft, nutty sponge topped with roast almonds- our dairy-free version of this classic is a real treat”

Serves: 12

Ready In: 55 minutes

Price Per Serving: 51p

Ingredients:

400g pack Genius Gluten Free Shortcrust Pastry

150g Chosen by you Raspberry Jam

125g Pure Dairy Free Sunflower Spread

125g Caster sugar

Few drops of almond extract

2 large eggs

125g ground almonds

50g Self Raising Flour (plus extra for rolling) 50g flaked almonds

Icing sugar, to dust

1. Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/ Gas 5. Knead the pastry lightly, shape into a ball and flatten slightly.

2. Remove the base from a 22cm loose-based flan tin and put on a lightly floured surface. Put the pastry in the middle, then roll it out to form a circle about 3cm larger than the tin base.

3. Carefully lower the base and pastry into the tin, using your fingers to fold the pastry into the tin, using your fingers to fold the pastry up the sides. Spread the jam over the pastry base.

4. Beat the sunflower spread, sugar and almond extract together until creamy. Add the eggs, ground almonds and flour. Beat until evenly mixed.

5. Put spoonfuls of the mixture all over the jam. Spread into an even layer very gently (to avoid the jam mixing with the almond mixture). Sprinkle over the flaked almonds.

6. Bake for 35 mins. Leave to cool on a aback. Dust with icing sugar to serve.

This looks amazing and I can’t wait to BAKE IT!

AHHHHH… if anyone has tried this let me know how it goes!
