This is my post for this month's "Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten Free!". This is a blogging event, started by Naomi Devlin. Each month has a different host and a different theme. July was hosted by Shirley of Gluten Free Easily, and she picked a quite original theme: Make me a happy camper.
Now I'm not really a camper - actually I don't think I have ever gone camping for real. But I do enjoy picknicks. This is the first summer I'm gluten-free and I found it a bit hard to think of little snacks to take with us on a picknick. But I managed. And we had fun :-)
I have to say I look forward to the round-up of this theme. You see, we'll probably go camping next year, and all tips and recipes are welcome, I'm a novice !
Now, what to take to a gluten-free picknick. Ofcourse, lots of vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, corn, ...) and fruit (apple, grapes, pineapple, ...) We also had - let's think - hard boiled eggs, small sausages, rice salad and salmon rolls.
These were a hit. Very easy, and tasty. Just bake some crêpes with buckwheat, spread them with cream cheese (like Philadelphia - I used a variety with herbs), and top with smoked salmon. Roll the crêpes up tightly, et voila.
• 200g buckwheat flour
• some salt (to taste)
• 2 eggs
• 350ml milk
Mix all the ingredients until you get a smooth dough. Bake thin crêpes and let them cool. Spread with toppings of your choice.
My boyfriend really liked the rice salad too. So I'd add a recipe for that too, but actually I just throw some things together...
• Cooked rice (I used whole grain rice)
• Paprika (I used yellow and red)
• Fried egg
• Herbs and dressing to taste
