Tasty Wheat Free Cooking

Jul 25, 2008
If you are new to wheat free cooking there are a few things you should keep in mind. Non-traditional flours are a bit trickier to work with and if not baked just right can turn into a heavy and flat mess.

First off, don't listen to people who say you need to buy up all the wheat flour substitutes on the market. This will not only cost you a fortune, it will end up being very confusing in the kitchen.

In addition, some alternative flours expire. Bags of rancid cooking ingredients will not make for a happy baker. Experiment with a few different wheat free baking mixes.

There are dozens of options available from Pamela's, Arrowhead Mills, Namaste, Authentic Foods, Bob's Red Mill, and more. Try the recipes on the boxes or bags, and substitute them in your favorite recipes.

When you have discovered your favorite brands make sure to always have their mixes on hand for whenever you want to bake something. You may want to consider getting some airtight containers to keep your mixes in to extend their shelf life. Other people keep their mixes in the freezer.

If you are allergic to more than just wheat you will need to make sure that any mixes you choose will not cause a reaction.

Second, you will have to experiment with your wheat free cooking. A lot. You will likely end up with several (or many more than several) batches of bread, cookies, and even meals that will go straight to the trash or garbage disposal.

Keep at it and keep in mind that each failure teaches you something new. Keep a record in your journal or in a binder of what you did wrong each time so you can perfect your recipes.

Third, make some friends or meet people who are in the same situation you are. There are local and online support groups you could join. These usually have a lot of recipes and tips that will reduce your own learning curve. The emotional reinforcement is nice as well.

Yes, it may take you a few months to get used to wheat free cooking. Just make sure to have the right tools, record your experiments and learn from others and you will be on the right track.
