I am finding The Healthy Gluten-Free Life to be an amazing resource! The author explains all of the different flours and ingredients used in gluten-free baking. Her recipes all have full page color photos and simple instructions. I'm excited to start trying them.
Using the book as a guide, I made my shopping list at Vitacost:
whole grain teff (never heard of this!)
potato flour (different from potato starch?)sorghum flour
xanthan gum (not even sure how to pronounce these two!)
coconut nectar (for coconut ice cream)
green pea flour (seriously, there is such a thing?)
So far I've only made one simple recipe - Almond Lemon Cookies. Julia was not a fan of these, but she doesn't like lemon baked goods anyway. Lucy and Esther enjoyed them. I need to grind up the teff, millet, and amaranth with my Vitamix dry container and then tackle gluten-free bread baking. I'm a little scared of how it might turn out!
