My Not So Secret Risotto Recipe – Gluten Free and Dairy Free

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil
2 white onions – thinly sliced
5 cloves of garlic – minced
Chorizo – roughly chopped
Mushrooms – roughly chopped
500g Passata or tinned chopped tomatoes
2 breasts of chicken
2 tbsp green pesto (link to gluten and dairy free)
2 tbsp Worcester Sauce (link to gluten and dairy free)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup red wine
1 tbsp basil
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp  paprika
1 tbsp parsley
1 tsp black pepper
50g of risotto rice
1-litre chicken stock
Shaved cheese to top (link to dairy and gluten-free)

Directions

  1. In a big pot heat olive oil and saute the onions till translucent.
  2. Add garlic, mushrooms, balsamic vinegar, Worchester sauce, red wine and pesto.
  3. Next, add the herbs (basil, oregano, paprika, parsley and black pepper).
  4. Pop in the chicken and allow to cook on the outside.
  5. Add passata and stir until chicken is cooked through.
  6. Next is the bit that requires patience. Add the risotto rice and coat in sauce.
  7. Gradually add chicken stock little by little and allow to be absorbed into the rice. Add more, wait till absorbed and repeat (if your rice is still hard in the centre, continue adding water and allowing to absorb until desired consistency is achieved).
  8. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese and serve.

This risotto is amazing to pre-cook, allow to cool, portion and keep in the fridge for around 3 days and freezes really well.

The Ultimate Gluten-Free Alcoholic Drinks Guide

Although I am confident in this list – always double check ingredients on all food and drinks.

Spirits

There is some controversy regarding whether all spirits are gluten-free. This is because the gluten protein is left behind during the vaporisation stage of distillation. Therefore the final product (in theory) shouldn’t contain gluten – but some people still report adverse effects.

Supermarket Available Gluten Free Porridge – A Review

So, over the last few months, I have tried all of the gluten-free porridge I can get my hands on – to see if I can find one that is nice. However, I have now worked out that I am intolerant to oat, unfortunately. However, if you are a lucky person I have popped this review up for others to use. So, here we go.

Nairn’s Gluten Free Instant Porridge

8 Pack – £3 – Available in ASDA, Ocado and Waitrose.

This porridge was sweet, creamy and thick – a little too finely ground for me as I was a fan of barely processed oatmeal before.

Taste: 3.5/5

Texture: 2/5

Price: 3/5

Perkier Gluten Free Porridge Pot – Fruity Berry

One – £1.50 – Available in Tesco

This porridge was excellent – delicious and full of flavour.

Taste: 4/5

Texture: 3.5/5

Price: 2/5

Tesco’s Free From Quick Cook Oat Sachets Variety Pack

6 Pack – £2 – 2 x Original, 2 x Golden Syrup & 2 x Apple and Cinnamon.

These sachets are a bit more expensive and not as tasty an oat base for the flavours as others I have tried. The apple and cinnamon had bits of actual apple in it and was very tasty, the golden syrup was average and I literally still have one of the original ones as they weren’t the best.

Taste: 2.5/5

Texture: 2/5

Price: 1.5/5

ASDA’s Free From Quick Cook Oat Sachets Golden Syrup Pack

8 Pack – £2 – Available in ASDA.

This one is my favourite one out of all I tried – sweet but not overly, lovely texture like “real” porridge – I have bought this over and over again.

Taste: 4.5/5

Texture: 4/5

Price: 5/5

So there you have it – my gluten-free oats review. If I have missed any – I am sorry, but I am not able to continue this experiment, unfortunately.

Dearest oats – I will miss you.

 

Comforting Gluten Free Homemade Creamed Rice Recipe

This is perfect for the coeliac – a big bowl of tasty, comforting goodness.

Ingredients (makes enough for 1)

1 cup of rice (we use brown)
1 cup of evaporated milk
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp of sugar (or 1 tbsp of honey)
Dried fruit if you wish

1. Cook rice by boiling (if using brown rice in a rice cooker – use a ratio of 1:1.5 for rice to water).

2. Drain rice and put in a pot with nutmeg, sugar and dried fruit if wished.

3. Bring to boil then simmer until to the thickness desired.

4. Serve – I tend to sprinkle a little nutmeg on top of the rice when served. Just for the pretties.
