My Kingdom for a GF Bread My Kids Will Like!
If my kids will eat it, probably everyone will. They are just that particular about bread.
I have turned eggs, nuts, seeds, grains, and vegetation into all manner of wraps, cakes, and crepes, with delectable results. Paleo, Vegan, Raw, this-free, that-free… there is a plethora of cool and creative concoctions which will hold pizza toppings, chicken salads, meats, cheeses, dressings, a world of flavors and textures… and you will see many of them on this blog.
However, there exists this one nemesis – the gluten-free bread that in some way resembles plain white wheat bread. Prepared breads serve a purpose, but tend to be grainy, dry, generally odd-tasting, and just unacceptable to very discriminating palates. Toasting these breads, or using them in a panade, or a crust, takes them to a new level and they are quite satisfying! But using them in a plain sandwich for lunch… hmm… leaves a lot to be desired.
This is important for individuals who absolutely can not eat gluten. This blog is all about options and choices, and bringing cuisine to its highest level so that everyone is free to fully enjoy eating beneficial foods. Bread is about as basic as it gets. It should be available and enjoyed!
Confession: I do not actually have a Kingdom to offer, but if you can find or create a soft-textured, mild flavored, gluten-free loaf of bread that my kids will eat, you will have my undying gratitude. 🙂
