Wheat free recipes and ideas

Has anyone got a good rice flour bread recipe which is wheat free please?
or any other bread etc recipes that are wf?
I have tried wf bread recipes that use xantham gum which is expensive and the bread was very heavy and akin to eating a bath sponge. In fact if anyone was in danger of flooding my bread could have been driven round in a truck and used as an effective sandbag.:o
I have disregarded the wheat free diet I was on and became quite unwell as a result so making it a mission to get back on it. I did buy some of that bread from the supermarket but its £2 a loaf and I like bread making.
i only picked up a few things which were quite expensive and most of them were :lipsrseal
I could also do with some ideas for meals/snacks that preferably don't include potatoes as well.
Thanks!

    I know how you feel halloweenqueen. My diet seems to consit of salad , pasta or something with potatoes and meat, poultry, fish. So not much variety I'm afraid.

    Cereal wise I have found a nice one from tesco's its like Jordan Country Crisp but cheaper and just as nice. It's an oaty one.

    For snacks I tend to eat rice cakes the flavoured ones from quakers and fruit and occasionally chocolate bars but they have wheat in as I have the choc digestive bars :o.

    for a wheat AND gluten free bread try the following

    90grms almond flour
    10 grmsflaxmeal (ground linseed)
    10grms bran (i use ground all bran)
    2 eggs
    3 tbspns cream
    1/2 tspn baking powder

    mix above,,. in a old fashioned tupperware sandwich box melt 25grm butter.. swirl it round then add the remaining butter to yr mix... the mix should look a bit like porridge...nuke for 3mins

    it tastes bit like a wholemeal rye bread but i quite like it

    HTH

  • I'm not a great fan of any sauces that go with pasta just to be awkward! I've had so many bad experiences eating pasta that its put me off for life I think.
    I do like cornbread so if theres a recipe going I'd be really grateful!
    Thanks for your recipe shykins!
    I did find that rice bread toasted is ok, so as a treat i'm having that with scrambled or boiled eggs, but its sooooo expensive!

    OMG thanks for posting this thread Halloweenqueen!

    I had to cut out a lot for food intolerance last year. I eventually reintroduced the lot and have to admit to feeling a lot better when it was all cut out..................I could just about cope, but it was VERY inconvenient and everything had to be preplanned which bored me to death!

    I'm trying to go back to cutting out wheat again this year, not done too bad but bread is still a problem, the only one I've found I liked is the Terence Stamp one, but it's £1.89 for a tiny weeny loaf! icon9.gif

    Godders made a rice and poppyseed one which was quite nice, but the slices were tiny and it was quite crumbly so not much good for a sandwich.

    I'm a convert to rice pasta tho! :j

  • Have you tried spelt flour? It is an ancient variety of wheat which a lot of people with wheat allergies can tolerate. Doves Farm make it and you can buy it in larger supermarkets.

    Lots of info here:
    Doves farm

    It is more expensive than normal bread flour, about £1.20 per kilo, but has a really lovely taste.
