« on: September 26, 2008, 06:43:05 am »
my baby (2.5y) is about to have the gastroscopy to test for coeliac - her blood test came back positive. i may have to be the queen of gluten free baking soon....

What's the result?  Are you having to become the gluten-free goddess of the Thermomix?

hello karen
sorry to hear that your bub isn't well. with any luck, the blood test is what they call a "false positive" - it does happen, which is why the gastroscopy is necessary. if you do end up having to go gluten free,then the TM31 will be a boon. not sure if you're aware, but TM HQ have produced a gluten free mini-cookbook, which has contributions by a dietitian who specialises in coeliac disease (i think she has CD herself).
cheers
pam

Hi Karen
The Thermomix GF & Wheat-free cookbook is quite a good cookbook in its own right, with not too many repetitions from the Everyday cookbook.  The ingredients are now in order of use, which makes it better than the original version, plus there's lots more recipes.
Cheers
Pam

Hi Pammo

Does it have a cross-section of entrees/soups, mains, desserts, baking?  Are the recipes vastly different?

Thanks

I have the G/F cook book, there arent too many main dishes in it I dont think, quite a lot of baking type of recipes
some of the things are
falafel, dahl, tabbouleh,
lentil and sweet potato soup, miso soup, quinoa soup, spinach soup
mousakka, adzuki stew, fritata, zucchini slice, chorizo and chickpea hotpot
gluten free bread, chestnut bread, almond bread, almond biscuits, chocholate brownies,sesame slice, chocolate alternative, chocholae nougat, cashew cream, gluten free profiteroles,ice cream, panna cotta, muffins using soy flour, polenta cake,

I think it is okay but seems like all TM cookbooks just dont have good basic down to earth recipes in there

i think the thing with gluten free is (based on my look at a cookbook at work today) the basics are pretty easy to work out - for me it would be the baking and things like breads and pizza doughs taht would be what i'd want to know about. i don't really get the concept of putting dips in a GF cookbook tbh, especially if it's the same recipe as you'd have in a non-GF cookbook...

you can actually see the contents page of the GF recipe book on the tmx website btw ;)

Just a note of hope on the horizon..in future publications from TM, we are including symbols on ALL recipes for Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free options...because of course there are some of all those categories in all cookbooks, no matter the title!

Good thinking - how about suitable for diabetics also as a group?
