I nearly cried when I found out all dumplings = gluten. They looked so white, I was sure they were made from rice flour! But no. So I have since desperately strived to find a way to make them myself, gluten free. And today, I (sort of) succeeded! They might not have the typical littl pleats and they might not be as sexy, but they are goooood and therefore, I am happy!
I just tested the recipe for these mini madeleines today and they are delicious! It totally works and there is absolutely no difference with the gluten version except for flour substitution! And they literally take 15 minutes to make and bake!
When I went to Isreal last Spring, I found out that there was a big buzz about this young girl who had figured out how to make really good gluten free bread – and what she used was simple : potato starch! Do not know why I never thought of that, anyway, it is genius. Her gluten free flour mix is now sold everywhere in Israel and used to make most gluten free breads and they are DELICIOUS and have an amazing gooey texture.
Some of you may know this already, but the traditional falafel is 100% gluten free! No flour whatsoever – in fact, I have no clue why some people put flour in because it really doesn’t need any. And I have proof.
AKA The Gooeyest Brownies EVER!
I’m not really one for the sweet stuff … but even I can’t ignore a slice of this. It’s really easy, don’t need crazy ingredients and your friends will be forever grateful. Also, no need to buy 1000 different types of chocolate – one pack will do and you can just chop up the extra to make the chocolate chips.
