Gluten-Free in Montreal: Point G Macarons

IMG_4999My favorite place to pick up certified gluten-free macarons in Montreal is Boutique Point G on Mont-Royal E. Most macarons are gluten-free as they are made with ground almonds, but there are some places in Montreal where certain flavors are not gf or they have come in contact with gluten. Always make sure when it comes to macarons.

All the macarons at Point G are gluten-free and so are most of the products sold in the store. They are great for any occasion and also make a really nice gift.

They have a cute store on Mont Royal and their macarons are also sold at some bakeries across the city. My favourites are the Caramel Fleur de Sel, Poppy Flower and Lavender-Blueberry.

GF Product Review: La Venezianne Gnocchi

2014-01-24 13.35.44La Veneziane makes my favorite gluten-free pasta and I almost broke into a dance when I saw this gnocchi on the shelf of a healthfood store on Parc. A friend of mine tried to make gluten-free gnocchi on our first date and it was quite a failure (sorry N!). Gluten-free gnocchi is not the easiest thing to make, never mind it being messy and time consuming to prepare.  The last time I had real gnocchi was over 10 years ago in Florence so it is difficult for me to properly compare but in my humble opinion I think La Venezianne gnocchi is great.  I definitely recommend this product, it’s quick to cook, delicious and brings back memories of a food I oh so missed.

I cooked my gnocchi (it only takes 1-2 minutes) and added it to a pan with butter, garlic, parmesan, chili flakes and a little gnocchi water. Perfect little meal!

Super Easy Egg & Corn Tortilla Breakfast Wrap (Gluten-Free)

gluten-free egg and tortilla breakfast wrapOne of my favorite super quick gluten-free breakfasts/snacks is this easy kinda omelet wrapped in a corn tortilla. It takes one minute to make and you can fill it with just about anything!

Ingredients for one breakfast wrap:

  • one egg, whisked in a small bowl with a pinch of salt
  • one corn tortilla
  • a small amount of butter or oil for pan (optional if using non stick)
  • For serving: cheese, onion, avocado, herbs, tomatoes…

Heat a pan over medium heat. Heat butter or oil. Pour in the egg and top with the corn tortilla. Once the egg is set flip the tortilla and heat it on the other side. Once cooked to your liking remove from heat and add your cheese and other fillings.

I filled mine with avocado and red onion and served it with hot sauce.

I brought these made in Quebec corn tortillas that are labeled gluten-free at Adonis
