Oh my goodness. Tonight I made the gluten free version of the most gluten packed dinner I can think of - spaghetti with garlic french bread. I've been trying this (and yes, cheating on occasion and poisoning my body - I always regret that)... but I've been trying to perfect this dinner since going gluten free and tonight I nailed it. It was so good, it was better than it has ever been before!
It's hard to say which part was the best, but I'll start with the bread because that's been so hard to replicate. I reluctantly bought a bread mix at my local grocery store. I will never buy it reluctantly again - in fact I want to buy a case of it. The bread mix is:
I had my doubts about a mix. Would it be simple enough to make after a full workday? Would it crumble into a gritty mess? Would my husband who doesn't have to eat gluten free like it? All my fears were absorbed by the ravenous fury that took us over when we sunk our teeth into this bread. It looked gorgeous, it cut beautifully without crumbling, and it was oh so tasty! It was moist, soft, and tasted better than I remember most wheat based breads tasting. Not sold yet?
How about after this picture?
Yes! It was everything I could ever ask for. This is the kind of bread that makes me want to find a way to bake for a living. We put a little butter and garlic on ours to work with the spaghetti, but I'd love to make French Toast with this. It would work well for many things, even as sandwich bread.
