Toasting friends and a great gluten-free Passover dinner

The title of this blog comes from my friends and family who are my GFBFFs (gluten-free best friends forever). I am very blessed with a group of friends who are very accommodating to the fact that I have celiac disease and constantly go out of their way to assure I can eat safely whether it be at one of their homes or when we are out.

This was on display this past week when my friend invited us all over for a Passover dinner that was 95% gluten-free and 100% vegetarian. I always find it easier when cooking for a group to keep the meal 100% gluten-free or at least to keep the non gluten-free items completely separate, in this case we prepared the glutenous part of the meal in a different area and served it separately. Here are some ideas to help make your next Passover more gluten-free friendly.

On the menu:

Gluten-Free Matzo Ball Soup: We used a gluten-free mix and added garlic, onion, carrot and celery to the broth.

Vegetable Latkes made with potato starch and “matzo meal” made from gf kosher for passover crackers: we didn’t really use a recipe. We grated carrot, zucchini and onion in a food processor, removed the excess liquid and combined the veggies with eggs, potato starch and the crackers (which had been pulsed pulsed in a blender). Then we fried them in oil. It was that easy.

Flourless chocolate cookies: http://food52.com/recipes/19209-divine-gluten-free-chocolate-cookies-no-seriously These were delicious and according to the hostess easy to make. A great anytime gluten-free recipe.

GF Product Review: Gluten-Free Matzo Ball & Soup Mix

2013-03-29 20.13.02My good friend introduced me to this gluten-free matzo ball & soup mix and it’s perfect. The matzo balls are soft and fluffy and the broth is simple, we sometimes add some spices and fresh dill. The box calls for adding celery and carrots. My friend recently made me this soup when I had a never ending cold, now that is a real gluten-free BFF! There is nothing better than a big bowl of gluten-free soup made my someone you love and gluten-free matzo balls make it even better.

You can find this Streit’s Matzo Ball & Soup Mix in the kosher section of some grocery stores.
