Between 1 in 100 and 1 in 300 people in the world are coeliacs, according to the World Gastroenterology Organisation. Each day more cases are diagnosed and eating a gluten-free diet is not getting any easier.
On such a day as today we are going to help you out a bit for those coeliacs and family members out there. Today Spain celebrated National Celiac Day and we present you with some simple recipes that will make for a well-rounded and delicious dinner with no gluten! We present our proposed menu:
To drink: if you like beer but you can’t normally drink it, here we present two options perfect for coeliacs:
– Estrella Damm: Daura. It’s the closest thing you are going to find to the original flavour, since it is made with real barley but with levels that are under the allowed threshold.
– Epic Brewing Company: Glutenator. This is an American beer made with black rice, sweet potato, molasses and millet. With citric and floral hops.
Courgette soup: this is a classic and simple recipe that can be prepared many different ways and can be accompanied by many gluten-free products. We love it for every occasion.
Wild asparagus with Parmesan cheese: although this menu may begin to seem more for a vegetarian than for a coeliac, we have chosen a second course with no meat because it’s also amongst our favourites. Complete with asparagus, mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice,…
Flourless chocolate cake: made with natural cocoa and eggs, this cake is made with no gluten and is delicious.
Raspberry sorbet with whipped cream and meringue: if you don’t like chocolate try this other option, the lightness of the meringue over the sorbet will surprise you.
