5 Comfort Foods You Can Still Enjoy When Going Gluten Free

Just because you’re now on a gluten-free diet doesn’t mean you have to give up comfort foods.  In fact, there are tons of incredible comfort food recipes that are gluten free and it’s time you know about them.  Cutting gluten out of your diet completely can seem like a daunting task – we’re here to help.

What is Gluten?

Simply put, gluten is a kind of protein that is found in various wheats.  It can cause digestive issues and other reactions in those that are gluten sensitive or gluten intolerant.  It is commonly used in various foods because it can help foods keep their shape – the danger is that there can be gluten in virtually anything, so it’s important to always check before eating anything if you’re gluten intolerant.

 Fortunately, there are plenty of foods out there that don’t have any gluten in them.  Here are some of the best comfort food recipes we’ve found:

Meat Pies

An Australian favourite, we make a wide variety of meat pies that are also gluten free – if you’ve been missing out on meat pies because of your gluten sensitivity, those days are over!  Carefully prepared with the finest gluten-free ingredients to bring the flavour and comfort you love, our meat pies are some of the top meat pies in the area.

We currently carry eight flavours of meat pies – Beef and Bacon, Beef and Mushroom, Beef and Onion, Cheese and Bacon, Chilli and Cheese, Shepherd’s, Chicken and Vegetable, and Traditional.

Quiche

If you’re a breakfast fanatic like we are, we have just the gluten-free meal for you.  Our Cheese and Bacon or Spinach and Fetta quiche is the perfect way to start your day. You’re getting a hearty, delicious meal that’s also gluten-free.  [

Our quiche is gluten-free as well as soy and yeast free.  For the best savoury gluten-free breakfast around, stock up on our incredible quiche.

Sausage Rolls

Sausage rolls are incredibly popular and delicious appetizers and are especially great for parties and gatherings.  They’re easy to serve as finger food that everyone will love. Even better, our savoury sausage rolls are also gluten-free!

We like to make sure that we have something for everyone, which is why we have multiple flavours.  We even have party packs for your next celebration!

Gnocchi

Another surprising entry on this list, gnocchi can very easily be converted into a delicious gluten-free meal. Traditionally made with wheat-based flour, gnocchi is a very popular dish around the world. However, making gnocchi with potatoes rather than flour is becoming a more popular trend, not only because it’s a gluten-free option, but because they’re delicious!

By combining potatoes and a gluten-free puree you can get the same great consistency and flavour that you’d expect with traditional gnocchi.

Pizza

The last entry on our list of delicious gluten-free comfort foods may also be the most surprising – so many people that are gluten-free have had to miss out on pizza, but that’s no longer the case!  We’ve created gluten-free crust that’s flaky and flavourful when baked.

The best part about our pizza crust is that you get to take the crust home and make the pizza with your family.  We have packs of pizza crust so you can even make multiple gluten-free pizzas! Just be sure to pair our exceptional gluten-free crust with gluten-free toppings for a delicious pizza that everyone will enjoy.

These are just a few of the many gluten-options available.  From savoury foods to biscuits and cakes, you don’t have to give up the things you love if you need to switch to a gluten-free diet.
