Gluten and Dairy Free Sweet Potato Base Pizza

thumb_DSC_0506_1024 2

Hello

I was pretty excited about this recipe for two main reasons:

  1. I love both sweet potatoes and pizza, and
  2. It is much quicker to make pizza from scratch –  no hanging around waiting on dough to rise

I wasn’t quite sure how something as soft as a sweet potato could make a crispy pizza base but believe me it does.  Spurred on by my recent success at making crisp sweet potato chips I took on the task of making a pizza base from sweet potato.  I’ve said in the recipe to add in 4 tablespoons of gluten free flour, you may have to adjust this slightly depending on your potatoes – basically you are looking for a dough like consistency.

I kept it simple topping it with some dairy free cheese (Violife) and some cherry tomatoes but it will make a great basic recipe to add your own combinations to.  I’m thinking maybe chorizo as it goes so well with sweet potato.

Enjoy!

Morning Everyone

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend. My new website is up and running and this is the first post on it, I hope you like it. It will continue to evolve over the next few weeks/months so if you have anything you love and want to see more of please give me a shout.

It also has a link directly to my online bookshop in the top menu bar.

It’s all very busy here with working on the new website, distributing my book (which is back in stock in 10 days, yippee!), working on my new gluten and dairy free cake book (which will be out for Christmas) and trying to clear my study for hopefully decorating next weekend (thanks Dad!).

Today’s recipe is inspired by a large bundle of yellow and green courgettes that I wanted to make something special with. I used the yellow courgettes to make a tasty relish and I’ll share the recipe for that in the coming weeks. I decided to make a bacon and cheese courgette tart with rosemary pastry, all gluten and dairy free of course. I hope you enjoy it, and you can actually read this post (I’m still getting used to the new site!).

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Prawn Noodles

Morning everyone, I’m on holiday from work today and after a lovely weekend away with friends I am supposed to be tidying out the study. Unfortunately in my usual way of doing things in the wrong order I bought a new computer to put in the study when it was finished but I’m just playing with that instead.

My excuse for using the new computer is to share this new recipe recipe with you. I’m trying out new gluten free noodles as there seems to be a large choice available if you shop around. I picked up a packet of ClearSprings gluten free brown rice noodles to try – they are nice and wide rather than being the thin rice noodles. I added some vegetables, prawns and a simple sauce. Quick and easy for busy week nights but packed with flavour.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups

Its been a super crazy week, a strange combination of hospital trips (everyone is fine now!), Fringe Festival nights out and of course the release of my first book in print. I want to thank everyone who has bought a copy – it really means a lot. Thanks also to everyone who has taken the time to send me kind messages about how much they like it. Believe it or not I’ve actually had to have it reprinted three times already!

If you would like a copy you get get one on my online bookstore: http://freefromfavourites.bigcartel.com/category/recipe-books

I love the peanut butter cups but the best bit for me is the peanut butter flavour so being super greedy for the peanuts I decided to see if I could change the chocolate to peanut butter balance. This experiment of balances ended up with the whole thing being reversed thus ending up with an inside out peanut butter cup.

Enjoy!

Gluten, Dairy & Egg Free Key Lime Pie Bars

Key Lime Pie is the perfect dessert to enjoy on a summer evening – fresh and zesty, perfect after dinner or served at a BBQ. I’ve used a blend of cashew nuts and coconut cream to get my topping for this pie – not your traditional key lime pie ingredients but it still tastes great.

Remember my book is available to buy if you are after a copy click here: Free From Favourites Online Bookstore

Enjoy!
