Gluten free baked gnocchi

Posted on

Gnocchi is such a handy meal, especially for us gluten free folks as it’s fairly easy to get your hands on! I’ve been struggling to find yummy foods that I can eat with my new braces but then gnocchi came to mind! I didn’t have any in the house so I thought I’d try and […]

One of my highlights of the year is always the Allergy & Free From Show. Unfortunately, due to the crazy snow we had last year, the 2018 show in Glasgow was cancelled so I think I speak for pretty much the whole of Scotland when I say we were more than ready for this one! […]

Creamy chicken and mushroom pie

Posted on

There is very little better than a tasty pie, especially on a cold day! I don’t think you can beat the classic combination of chicken and mushroom however of course if mushrooms don’t agree with you or you want to make this more FODMAP friendly, you could easily substitute it with peppers, courgette or carrots.
