Gluten-Free for Good: Simple, Wholesome Recipes Made from Scratch by Samantha Seneviratne

Gluten-Free for Good: Simple, Wholesome Recipes Made from Scratch
Gluten-Free for Good: Simple, Wholesome Recipes Made from Scratch by Samantha Seneviratne

No meal should be defined by what's not there. Gluten-Free for Good has 100 easy, healthful gluten-free recipes that are so delicious you’ll never miss the gluten.

I find this cookbook quite interesting as I must agree that gluten can cause a lot of problems and should be avoided if possible. I enjoy trying to cook desserts which are gluten-free, not to mention a variety of main dishes and sides which are vegetable and meat-based rather than wheat-based. One thing I dislike about this cookbook is that it includes mostly savoury recipes which are obviously gluten-free. I would prefer a gluten-free cookbook devoted to bready and desserty recipes. Also, gluten-free doesn't mean sugar-free; something which many of you know and may not even mind. 
The photographs in this new cookbook are beautiful and refreshing. The recipes look delicious. What a healthy addition to your kitchen library!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. 

Here are dishes you may have thought you'd never enjoy again—not without resorting to expensive packaged gluten-free foods that aren't as delicious or healthful as the real thing. These quick-cooking meals are for any time of day, all made from scratch without hard-to-digest processed additives like xanthan or guar gum. Recipes include:

Miso Shrimp with Snap Peas
Roast Chicken with Whole-Grain Sausage Stuffing
Leek and Carrot Brown Rice Risotto
White Pizza with Blistered Tomatoes
Spanish Tortilla
Parmesan Cheese Crackers
Loaded Oat Bars
Upside-Down Skillet Plum Cake
Carrot Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting 
Blondie Bars
 
The best way to eat more of what you love is to cook real foods at home. With inspiring photographs and a simple pantry primer, Gluten-Free for Good shows how cooking gluten-free can be seamless, instinctive, and appealing.
