Gluten Free Zuchinni Noodles - Using a spiralizer to make gluten free noodles

No comments
So last week I decided to do something different with our meal.  We typically have a carb with our meal.  Usually some sort of rice or potato.  If we are having pasta, we usually struggle to get in a veggie.

So I decided to try something different from a spiralizer cook book we borrowed from the library. We made zuchinni noodles!  I knew it was risky with kids, but I know they love the green pea pasta from Costco.  So I thought to try and trick them with another veggie pasta.  


To be kid friendly, I peeled the skin, so the zucchini looked more like a noodle.  Then I used the noodle insert to create long twisty noodles.  I then heated up some oil with garlic and sauteed the noodles for a minute before adding the sauce to cook it more until el dante. I can tell you hiding the fact this was a vegetable did not work as well as the pea pasta, but the kids still liked it.  They knew it wasn't real pasta, but powered through it.  I made sure to have a tasty sauce with it, and served it with a veal parmesan.

Does Subway Subs have a gluten free bun? Yes!

No comments
We heard a whisper last week of a Subway Subs in Edmonton serving up a gluten free bun.  Well, when we shared that whisper, it turned into a roar, as people began to report which locations they saw the gluten free buns at.

So, we came to the conclusion that we had to try the gluten free bun at Subway ourselves.



Like every restaurant there is high risk of cross contamination. So we took a few steps, to try and reduce, and they took a few steps to try and reduce the risk of cross contamination.
  • The buns are pre baked offsite, and pre packaged and brought into the store
  • We had them change their gloves and cutting knife.
  • We checked the allergen chart on their website to determine what toppings are gluten free
Tip:
You can always ask if the sandwich maker is able to get veggies from new container that maybe has not been exposed to other ingredients or buns.

So about the bun!  It is $1 extra for a 6" sub, which to me isn't that bad, although we all obviously wish there were no extra surcharges for gluten free right?  We had them microwave the bun instead of toasting the bun.  That got the bun warm and soft.


The bun itself was the perfect thickness and had a nice sweet tone to it. The location we went to at Tera Losa, tried to keep the buns fresh, by dating the bun and putting in the fridge to naturally thaw.  The buns are tossed after a certain date to keep freshness.

We also noticed that have a pre packaged gluten brownie, but Amanda had the gluten free chips. 

When I reached out to Subway Canada on Facebook, they informed me by June 1, 2017 all locations will have the gf bun.  They also let me know of their protocols, see below... so you can help yourself by ensuring they follow!
