I made the best gluten-free pizza EVER! I ate my first ever gluten-free pizza in Italy, in a restaurant close to Treviso. The pizza was good, but the crust was a bit hard and you could taste that it was gluten-free. My second gluten-free pizza was in the Netherlands, at an Italian restaurant. The same story, good, but I almost broke my knife when I tried to cut it. Also, my last two experiences with gluten-free pizza’s (in Italy again) were ok, but not amazing. The first had a hard crust again and the other one was more like a soft fluffy bread instead of a pizza.
I am not a Pokémon fan, I never watched it on tv as a child and I don’t play Pokémon Go, but I did always think Pikachu was cute. Who doesn’t ;) At my work, there are some people with an obsession with Pokémon Go and therefore I promised to make Pokemon cupcakes.
I am still in an Italian food phase since my holiday in Italy. Today I have a recipe for you for an amazing Italian burrata parma ham salad. I have already told you before how I love that Italians can make the most brilliant dishes with only a few (high quality) ingredients. This salad is an example of this.
It is warm, it is summer, finally! I am so happy that we are still getting a bit of summer. And because it looks like the warm weather will stay for a while, we can do with some refreshing recipes. That is why I put my five favourite refreshing recipes from my blog together for you!
During my holiday in Italy, I discovered farinata. An Italian pancake made from chickpea flour. A typical Italian snack that originates in Genua at the Ligurian coast. Also in the Cinque Terre, a bit more to the south, you can find it everywhere. This region is known for its focaccia’s and farinata’s and you see Foccacciaria’s and Farinateria’s in every town. The nice thing about the farinata is that this pancake is naturally gluten-free because it is made with chickpea flour. The recipe is very simple, because, next to chickpea flour, the batter only consists of olive oil and water.
I am not done with sharing baked oatmeal recipes yet! Sometimes I don’t eat oatmeal for months and sometimes I am in a phase where I eat it all the time. This is such a phase. A baked oatmeal phase! After my blueberry baked oatmeal from last week and my older recipe for chocolate chip baked oatmeal, I now have a recipe with my all-time favourite ingredient: peanut butter baked oatmeal. Yass! It doesn’t get much better than this!
You can come to me with everything that slightly resembles sushi. I am a huge fan of the sushi bowl and also the poké bowls that I have been hearing about more and more lately seem worth a try (and no that has nothing to do with Pokémon). It is a lazy way of making food that tastes like sushi and I like that. Especially on working days when I have to start cooking dinner at 6.30 after I come home from a day of work. This also gave me the idea for this cream cheese rice salad with smoked salmon.
Spaghetti carbonara is a real Italian classic. When I was on my holiday in Italy at the end of July, I ate a gluten-free spaghetti carbonara in a restaurant and I realised that I never made this dish myself. So it is about time for a low FODMAP spaghetti carbonara!
