Let’s see what’s in the February 2017 American Gluten-Free “Foodie” box!
The box! — “Free of gluten, full of life” 🙂
A peek inside.
An info booklet listed all of the items I’d find inside, along with brief descriptions for each one. There were also a few recipes utilizing a few of the feature items (with full color photos!).
Equal Exchange Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
These organic chocolate chips are produced in an allergen free facility and are vegan-friendly (woo!). They’re also made with 70% cacao which comes from small, fair trade farms. Since my favorite vegan-friendly chocolate chips recently decided to add milk fat to their recipe (WHY??), these will be an awesome replacement. 🙂
Finger Lakes Wine Flour — Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon wine flour is a naturally gluten-free superfood, rich in antioxidants, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It’s great for all types of recipes to add flavor, color and nutrition that plain ol’ white flour can’t provide.
A few recipes — tied to the back of the flour package — were also included.
Andean Dream Quinoa Pasta
After trying (and not really enjoying) corn-based gluten-free pasta, I’m excited to try this quinoa-based (corn-free!) alternative. It’s made with just two GMO-free ingredients: Organic white rice flour and organic quinoa flour.
Cherry Bay Orchards Dried Montmorency Cherries
These all natural, preservative-free dried cherries are great for baking into your favorite recipes, or simply enjoyed on their own.
Chebe Focaccia Bread Mix
I love focaccia bread, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually made my own. This kit allows you to make one 9-inch flatbread when mixed with eggs, oil, water, and cheese. While not intended to be vegan, I’m pretty sure I can successfully “veganize” it with a few tweaks. 🙂
Ha! I’ve seen these Loch Ness Monster “Nessie” ladles and always thought they were cute, but couldn’t justify actually buying one. — Now I don’t have to! 😀
Equal Exchange Chocolate Hearts
More chocolate! — These little dark chocolate hearts are made with organic ingredients including fairly traded 55% cacao. They’re also 100% vegan and gluten-free. 🙂
I was really impressed with my first American Gluten-Free “Foodie” box! I was also happily surprised to find that all of the items happened to be vegan-friendly as well. Woo! — Definitely a great box for anyone following a gluten-free diet or just trying to cut back on it. 🙂
Ok box for February. I will eventually use most of what was inside but the “Nessie” ladle is gone, it is cheaply made and when I tried to scoop out hot soup it bent so bad I spilled much of it on the stove. Sorry
Oh no! I haven’t used my Nessie yet and was wondering what the quality was like since it didn’t come with any packaging. Bummer! 🙁
