Is it possible to have great tasting gluten-free foods? Yes, with the
secret of coconut flour. Coconut flour is made from dried coconut that
has been ground into a powder. It looks and feels just like any other
flour, but unlike wheat flour, it is completely gluten-free. It is an
excellent source of vitamins and minerals and contains about the same
amount of protein as whole wheat. It is a good source of calorie-free
dietary fiber that is so important for good digestive health. The best
part is that it tastes fantastic!
Using the basic yeast dough recipe described in this book, you will be
able to make gluten-free yeast breads that will remind you of your
motherís homemade baked bread. Yet these recipes are easier and quicker
to make. With coconut flour and a few other key ingredients, you can
make gourmet dinner rolls, sandwich bread, pizza crust, calzones,
hamburger and hot dog buns, breadsticks, scones, tortillas, and a
variety of artisan breads.
The recipes in this book are designed to appeal to a wide range of
tastes. For breakfast you will find a variety of sweet and savory
muffins, pancakes, and waffles. The Jalapeno Cheese Muffins and the Ham
and Cheese Waffles are incredible! If you like sweets and desserts, you
will find cakes, cupcakes, tarts, cookies, and even ice cream
sandwiches. You will also find plenty of savory items such as Sesame
Pecan Chicken, Tempura Shrimp, Cashew Chicken, Cajun Chicken Fingers,
Sweet and Sour Pork, and even a delicious gluten-free Turkey Stuffing.
Who knew gluten-free cooking could taste so good?
