Testing a gluten-free bread mix from “Bauckhof”

Have you ever tried a gluten-free bread mix? I didn't before...I was standing in front of the well-stocked supermarket shelf looking for various types of gluten-free flour as I noticed the bread mix packaging from "Bauckhof".

I have to admit, the name "Schnellbrot" (quick bread) and the tempting image catched my interest...the result? I was impressed! It is easy and quick to prepare and it is very rich in flavour - and therefore I would recommend it.

Gluten-free glass noodle soup with coconut milk and shrimps

Great news:  a lot of asian noodles are gluten-free as they are made from ingredients like acorns, mung beans, rice or sweet potatoes. Some of them still contain wheat flour so you better double check the ingredients on the packaging (but also a lot of them are gluten-free, available in asian markets, in well-stocked stores or online).

Just to mention some of them: acorns, mung beans, rice noodles, buckwheat or sweet potato vermicelli,  shirataki noodles...So be creative and explore this wonderful variety of gluten-free noodles!
