Gluten-free recipes: all your favourite foods made gluten-free

Pasta-loving cook Becky Excell had to give up gluten – so set about ensuring none of her favourite foods were off-menu.

Fresh pasta

While you can buy dried gluten-free pasta from supermarkets, there’s something so satisfying about making your own. Use this dough to make lasagne sheets or tagliatelle – it’s pasta machine-friendly, too!

Pizza Margherita

I can’t believe I went so long without eating pizza when my three-ingredient gluten-free pizza dough is so easy to make.

Korean-style fried chicken tenders

Think super-crunchy fried chicken in a thick, sticky, sweet and spicy sauce. One bite and you’ll be hooked!

Garlic and rosemary focaccia

Every time I eat this focaccia, I absolutely cannot believe that it’s gluten-free. It’s light and fluffy with a soft crust, infused with tons of flavour thanks to the olive oil and finished with a hit of fresh rosemary and salt.

Ham and cheese breakfast galettes

Traditionally made with buckwheat flour, so make sure yours is gluten-free. These are just like the galettes I had in Paris – thin and crisp, filled with an egg with runny yolk, melted cheese and ham. The perfect easy breakfast or brunch.

Grandma’s ginger biscuits

Nobody made ginger biscuits quite like my grandma. They’re crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle, with a sweet, warming hug of ginger.

Baked ring doughnuts

My baked ring doughnuts are super soft, light and finished with a sweet glaze plus sprinkles – ‘Homer Simpson doughnuts’, as I call them!

Lemon drizzle cake

The secret ingredient is ground almonds, which make this lovely and moist. It’s also packed with lemon thanks to the drizzle and the icing.
