Gluten Free Em’s Favorite White Bread

This bread takes a little effort, but is worth every bit of it! Fresh out of the bread machine it has a moist texture and is great for sandwiches. Of course, after a day or two it dries out and gets crumbly like all homemade bread. That is never a problem in my home though, because we eat it all up in one day!!!

Shopping list:
Sugar in the Raw (Or brown, or white will do.)
Apple cider vinegar
Honey (Raw honey if possible)
Olive oil
White rice flour (Bob’s Red Mill is the brand that I recommend on all the flours except brown rice.)
Brown rice flour (Freshly milled using a Wondermill is how I do it.)
Tapioca starch
Potato starch
Almond meal
Active dry yeast (Make sure it says it is gluten free)

If you don’t have a corn allergy, you can also purchase xanthan gum and use a small amount, but it is not required. It does give it a more elastic texture, which makes it that much closer to the white bread you are used to. I personally do not use it any more.
If you have a bread machine:
Mix together…
2 whole eggs plus 2 egg whites
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons  Sugar in the raw (or brown sugar)
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup of olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
Break up the yolks with a fork and add honey to the bread pan covering the paddle thoroughly with honey. Pour in liquid mixture.
Add dry ingredients…
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 1/2 cup white rice flour
3/4 cup tapioca starch
3/4 cup potato starch
1/4 cup almond meal
2 teaspoons of yeast/ or one packet
Set bread machine on basic with medium crust and don’t forget to scrape the edges to ensure all dry ingredients are mixed in to the batter.

Without a bread machine:
Mix the same liquid ingredients with a mixer until the eggs are frothy. Slowly add dry ingredients, scraping edge of bowl to mix thoroughly. Transfer to a greased and floured loaf pan leaving at least an inch space at the top of the pan for the dough to rise. (Can be divided into two smaller loaves if desired.) Heat oven to 200°, then turn off. Place pan with dough into the warm oven to rise. In about an hour dough should be nearly doubled. Gently press the top of the loaf until it deflates slightly. Let rise again for 1 hour. Bake at 325° for roughly 45 minutes, or until top is very dark and toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Baking time will vary based of your oven.

If you don’t have a bread machine and are serious about going gluten free—Do yourself a favor and Go GET ONE! They save you time, effort, and money. They make the bread much better in texture and taste, not to mention nutrition from fresh ingredients. You will be happy you did!

Easy Gluten Free Meals

I know how hard it is to think of something to make for dinner when your diet is restricted. Just one thing like gluten can change everything in your kitchen, turning it upside down for a while. There are a lot of meals out there to choose from and if you use your imagination you will find yourself fixing up some really tasty things! There are a lot of wonderful recipes to be found! When your diet has to change all at once a lot of your favorite foods have to go, but not forever! Yes, I know there is no way you will ever eat gluten again without being sick, but you can substitute gluten free foods into your original recipes to make them gluten free! Here is one of my favorite meals:

½ to 1 pound of hamburger
1 cup onion and peppers combination
Cook these together until hamburger is ground finely and well done.
Cook 1 pound rice pasta till tender.
Add ½ to 1 pound grated cheese
1 can black eye peas drained
2 cups mixed vegetables
1 can asparagus spears
Add in hamburger mixture season with Turmeric and Parsley, salt and pepper.
Mix this up using each ingredient and then place in baking dish with canned, drained asparagus lining the top and some of the cheese on top. Baked it till cheese has melted. Fills a thirteen by nine pan.

This recipe gives you a well balanced meal with nutrition and great taste! Try it yourself today!
