I heard somewhere on MDC there's a Gluten Free Thread or tribe, but I did a search and didn't find it. Anyone know where it is? Can you include the link(s).<br>
The main thing I'm looking for right now is a gluten free, casein free, soy free, corn free bread recipe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br>
TIA<br>

There's a sticky in Allergies with recipes and meal ideas.<br><br>
Or you could try this bread recipe (it's good for sandwiches--cuts well, holds together, like that)<br><br>
ETA: if xanthan gum isn't ok, then I have no suggestions.<br><br>
1 3/4 cups rice flour (any GF flours seem to be fine)<br>
1/2 cup potato starch (or mix/match starches)<br>
1/4 cup tapioca starch<br>
1/4 cup almond meal (orig recipe said nonfat dry milk or skim milk powder)<br>
2 tbsp granulated sugar (or honey)<br>
2 1/2 tsp xanthan gum<br>
2 tsp instant yeast (I use regular yeast and proof it with some of the sugar in some of the water)<br>
1 1/4 tsp salt<br>
1 cup water (orig said goat milk ok too)<br>
2 tsp cider vinegar<br>
2 tbsp vegetable oil<br>
2 eggs (or Ener-g egg replacer)<br>
2 egg whites (or Ener-g egg replacer)<br><br>
1. In a large bowl or plastic bag, combine dry ingredients. Mix well and set aside.<br>
1.5 I put the yeast, a bit of sugar and a bit of water aside and don't add it until after the wet and dry are together, before the 4-min mixing.<br>
2. In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients (with a mixer) until well blended.<br>
3. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix on medium for 4 minutes.<br>
4. Pour into prepared pan. Let rise uncovered for 60-75 minutes or longer. Preheat the oven to 350F and bake for 35-45 minutes.

While xanthum gum is fine, white potatos which I'm guessing is where potato starch comes from, as well as tapioca are both on the no no list for me...<br><br>
Thanks for the heads up about the sticky though!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

IIRC, Xanthan gum is derived from corn, so you may want to look into that.<br><br>
Check out the tribe, it's an awesome group. I've been slacking on posting, I need to get over there and catch up.

Ah, thanks for the heads up about xanthan gum. Sheesh it can be so hard to keep up w/all these tricky little things. Thank goodness I'm not highly allergic! Just trying to follow the food list for my Genotype so I feel better, which I mostly do, but I know there's more feelin good than this!

You might do best finding alternative meals that don't include bread, rather than trying to make a substitute bread.<br><br>
If nuts and eggs are OK you can make muffins.

Yes, I've pretty much eliminated all bready products from my life, but sometimes I get a major craving and I'd love to be able to make something bready so I don't feel deprived, ya know?<br>
I've discovered that I can have like 2 bites of bread or cake or cookies w/o any obvious detrimental effects, but I haven't experimented w/anything more than that for fear of what it will do to me. Last time I ate wheat a few months ago like April? was a couple slices of french toast at a fancy restaraunt that tasted soooo good and I felt like my whole torso was made of concrete after that for hours and hours!! It was horrible!<br><br>
Thankfully almonds and eggs are on the good list! So yes muffins would be great!
