We picked up this bag of organic gluten-free goodness at our favourite neighbourhood grocery store Fiesta Farms. But we had no intention of eating it for breakfast.
Instead we made a delicious juicy crisp with apples and raspberries!
Why didn’t we think of this sooner?! For the recipe, click here.
We’re happy to have Lotus Fine Foods as a sponsor of the Gluten Free Garage! They’ll be exhibiting their nutritious quinoa granola at the Neal Brothers table.
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe…
And the winner is…Chippity Chocolate Chip! Ever since we discovered Gaga for Gluten-Free’s yummy allergen-friendly cookies, the glass has been half full.
We’re happy to have Gaga for Gluten-Free as a sponsor of the Gluten Free Garage! We hope they’ll be sampling all three varieties of their melt-in-your-mouth cookies!
We paid a visit to one of the new vendors who will be at the Gluten Free Garage: Tori’s Bakeshop, a sight for sore eyes on Queen East in the Beaches.
From the confectionary storefront…
…to the eye-catching mason jar lights, Tori’s is not only warm and inviting…
They’ve also perfected the gluten-free version of this Canadian staple!
Franny goes pink-a-licious with sprinkles on top.
I have my eye on a chocolate glazed.
On a more savoury note, this is the Best. Cornbread. Ever.
Sisters and official GFG taste-testers give Tori’s fresh-baked goodies four thumbs up!
Tori’s is not a gluten-free bakery but they take enormous precaution to ensure that cross-contamination does not occur. They are well aware of the importance of this, they have an extensive list of practices and strategies about it for their staff, and they clearly list all ingredients on a tag next to each baked good. As such I consider their bakery to be celiac friendly. Lily has enjoyed their delicious baked goods on several occasions and has felt nothing but tummy love.
Toss grape tomatoes and asparagus with olive oil, sea salt and black pepper.
Roast ‘em at 350°F for about 15 minutes, keeping an eye out.
Slice red onion, toss rings in olive oil and cook on medium-high heat.
Be patient. Carmelizing onions is slow work.
Make dip: Warm goat cheese (I use honey goat cheese, which takes this dip to a whole other level) in oven and lovingly combine with homemade pesto. Arrange veggies around dip, drizzle with balsamic glaze and a few grinds of fresh black pepper. Gobble it up with Mary’s Gone Crackers!
(Thanks to ECHOage co-founder Alison Smith for sharing this deliciousness with me! And, more importantly, for starting ECHOage and reinventing the birthday party!)
Dude, these are good.
We’re happy to have Late July as a sponsor of the Gluten Free Garage!
