Gluten Free Pie!

Posted by Megan McConnell
Gluten Free Pie!

Being Coeliac one of the main foods that I found most difficult to give up was Pie, especially chicken & mushroom or chicken and ham pie's!! There are of course many gluten free substitutes for pastry, bread, pasta etc however finding a decent 'normal' tasting pastry, as the texture is always extremely crumbly, make's it difficult to enjoy any homemade pies as they aren't quite the same as a glutenous pie.

When I first moved to London 3 years ago I didn't cook at all, I wasn't overlly creative in the kitchen and always took the easier option of eating out. At this point I discovered this online bakery, 'The Gluten Free Bakers' that delivered! They have loads to offer including breads, savouries, pancakes, pizza base, confectionary & seasonal specials. I have tried the mini quiche which are really lovely, the sausage rolls which were average and the pies which I love!! They have a great selection of fillings and as I order in bulk I can keep them in the freezer and when I'm in the mood for a gluten free pie I heat them thoroughly in the oven for about 25 mins or until piping hot.

I was diagnosed with Coeliac when I was 18 and since then so many more products and gluten free alternatives have become available in stores such as Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose, Asda & Holland & Barrett.

I have tried and tested quite a few products to find out what tastes best but I am yet to try some of the below alternatives.
