Welcome to our KISS (Keep It Simple & Safe) Campaign page.
As an ex-manufacturer of food, I totally understand how difficult it is to cater for special diets when you have to serve over 200 covers at once. Fear not, I have a cunning plan. I have produced some gluten, wheat and dairy free alternative recipes for caterers. All the dishes are ‘naturally’ gluten free and use regular kitchen ingredients, so there is no reason why these dishes (or similar ones) shouldn’t be on the menu for all diners. They are not intended to be followed to the letter – more inspirational than anything else.

Gluten free stuffed pancakes

I used to love the Findus stuffed pancakes BC (before Coeliac), so I thought I would have a go at making my own gluten free version. They were very filling, so possibly use a small frying pan for the pancakes, but really tasty. You could also try different fillings, such as chicken & mushroom, leek & potato, or vegetable samosa mix.

For the filling:
500g beef mince
150g diced onion
2 cloves garlic
500ml beef stock
1/2 tbs cider vinegar
1/2 tbs sugar
1/2 tbs lemon juice
1 1/2 tbs apple juice
1/4 mixed herbs
Cornflour to thicken
Season to taste
For the pancake:
110g rice flour
2 large eggs
225ml rice milk (or 250 ml ‘normal’ milk)
Pinch Salt

Egg wash
Breadcrumbs

Gluten free chocolate cornflake cakes

I used to love making chocolate cornflake cakes as a child, so thought it would great to post something that can be made easily for Mothers’ Day by the minions. It can be made with just melting chocolate, but in my opinion this way is so much nicer. I used Whole Earth cornflakes, but any gluten free cornflakes or rice krispies can be used.

Recipe:
100g cocoa powder
100g golden syrup
100g golden granulated sugar
100g butter (or dairy free spread)
150g cornflakes/rice kripies
