I have just started a gluten free diet and I'm still at the "experimentation" stage - I bought gluten free pasta, flour, soy sauce and crisp breads - wow, that was an expensive one! I like the crisp breads, but I've used the pasta once and it was MINGING! It all stuck together in the pan (thankfully I bought penne and not spaghetti), and did not have a very nice texture when I ate it. I made a cheese sauce with GF flour and added some turkey bacon (I also don't eat red meat) to make a carbonara type thing - it was food, but not something I'll make again. Today I made cupcakes with the GF flour - they're ok, a bit dry, but butter icing should help there. I want to make food that I enjoy - it would appear that just substituting GF ingredients for normal ones is not how to do it - help?
