Something better than nothing…

My girl had not been eating bread since she started going on a gluten-free diet around the end of last year. If it were me, I would just avoid all the things I could not eat and stick to the rest but of course, she isn’t me. All this time, she would moan and groan that she missed eating this and that and would crave for all those in the black list, including bread.

She did try making her own using other types of flour and stuff but no, all her attempts were not all that successful until she came across this gluten-free bread mix and this was what came out of it…

Gluten-free bread

It does look like bread, doesn’t it?

The texture was soft, just like bread…

…but no, it did not quite taste like bread. Ah well! As they say, something is better than nothing. She wasted no time at all in making some kaya toast to enjoy – after all these months, there sure was cause to celebrate now that she could have this bread substitute.

The next morning, she made some mini pizzas using sausages, pasta sauce and lots of cheese and she did give me a bit to try. I thought it was pretty good and I ended up trying to make some myself.

First, I toasted two slices of the bread…

…and applied some butter on one side of each of them and then I spread some mashed salmon, pasta sauce, a bit of lemon and herb salad cream and cream cheese…

…before sprinkling some pizza cheese on top…

…and putting them in the oven to bake.

Yes, it was nice…

…but at over RM20.00 a box, I guess she would have to wait a while before she gets to appease her craving for bread…and pizzas again.

I did not take a photograph of the box but if you’re wondering what brand that was, this is the cake mix…

Orgran, gluten free - made in Australia

…that we have yet to try, also over RM20 a box, made in Australia. We’ve tried the pancake earlier and yes, it was good and the bread turned out well so I guess the cake shouldn’t be too bad either.
