Have you been to Pampa and tried the gluten free cheese balls? Well if you have, you want to hop on over to Najah at RioVida Gluten Free Bakery. Did you know Najah is Brazilian? So this recipe come naturally to Najah, and therefore, naturally tastes awesome!
If you've never been to RioVida, you need to check it out. Najah has a plethora of gluten free goodies to try including flatbreads, pizza crusts, donairs, donuts, buns and much much MUCH more.
She keeps a freezer of goodies, but it is good to call in to see what is fresh, or call in a custom order for the week. Visit her website at www.riovidaglutenfree.ca.
Have you been to Millcreek Cafe in Bonnie Doon for breakfast or lunch yet? If not, you should. They open at 8:30am from Monday to Friday for breakfast and 9am on Saturday and 10am for brunch.
We've been a few times and have had the latkes (potato pancakes) with boursin cheese and lux. More recently Amanda ventures off and tried their gluten free stuffed french toast with Nutella and strawberry's. Yum yum yum!
Yes it tastes just as good as it looks.
Their menu is well marked with the gluten free items (which is just about everything). Heck they even will make gluten free french toast which is fantastic. And their gf surcharge is only $1 which is better than most places.
We were recently provided some samples of Wild Garden Mediterranean Foods Snack Box to Go! gluten free treats (note, not all of them are gluten free). Each snack to go box comes with one squeeze pack of gluten free hummus and one pack of gluten free cracker or chip.
This product is fairly new and not available everywhere yet. You can find Snack Box to Go at Sobey's locations. We even saw them recently available at Jugo Juice (those guys are just on the ball).
We really enjoyed these quick snacks. The hummus tastes like a traditional hummus, very much heavy on the chickpea, lighter on the tahini. They source 3rd party chips/crackers from other gluten free manufacturers, so you can choose your favourite.
We tried out Sloppy Hoggs Roed Hus on 118 ave for lunch recently. All the meats and sauces are gluten free. They even have a gluten free dessert ice cream pie made with oats (remember unconaminated oats are not for everyone) They do have a shared fryer for the fries so the fries might not be for everybody. The food itself was pretty good, and really good value. The lunch was 10 dollars and it came with fries. An entree portion is a la carte, it comes with more, and is 9.75, with fries ordered separately. Gluten free bun is a $1.25 extra, which is reasonable. Try it out and let us know what you think.
We're not in the habbit of making lots of Enchilada's but when we do, we use this Frontera sauce found at Safeway that does not contain gluten ingredients with this gluten free tortilla from La Cocina found at Superstore.
To be honest, when it comes to enchilada's we don't have much to compare to because this was the first sauce we tried and liked it so much, we never felt the need to try another.
A recipe is on the package, and you just need to add any extra fix'n's you want to your enchilada's. Our kids love this recipe! It is not to spicy, so you may want to add some of your favourite hot sauce if you want to add some kick to this.
