Its Coeliac Awareness Week this week, and we're supporting our Coeliac readers by giving you a new and exciting Coeliac friendly recipe every day this week that will make your mouth water!
Today its Roasted Buckwheat Gnocchi Skewers with Tomato Salad from our friends at 'Honest Eats'.The gang at Honest Eats are a seriously cool bunch and we have to take our hat off to the founders Lisa Costello, Paul Jemetta and Luciano Censorii for creating one of the biggest online food retail shops for people with food intolerances. They stock over 600 products and mostly from the EU. As someone with a Gluten Intolerance myself i have to thank them for making my life a whole lot easier in sourcing foods.
The dish, crafted by Honest Eats’ recipe specialist, Charlotte Lloyd Owen, puts the flavour back in to gluten-free eating by perfectly pairing delicious buckwheat gnocchi with fresh Mediterranean vegetables and free-from ingredients sourced from relatively undiscovered European suppliers.
Better yet its not just suitable for Coeliacs - its Gluten-free, Lactose-free, Vegan and Vegetarian!
So its an all round winner if you are cooking for friends with food intolerance's!
