I am not sure if you have noticed but my little side bar over there has expanded by one in the last month. I am delighted to announce that Live Free Gluten Free has become a Nellbe Gluten Free advertiser. I am very lucky!
Live Free Gluten Free also sent me a couple of their products to give a whirl in the kitchen.
First up, Live Free Gluten Free Chicken Seasoning. It was as simple as egging and crumbing some chicken, into the pan it went, cooked it and served it up.
The hubby and boys loved it. Actually I should say, LOVED it. They all declared it the best chicken I have ever made them.
The other product I tried out was the Live Free Gluten Free Pastry Mix. This was also simple to use as you just added butter then some water, stirred with a knife and hey presto! Gluten Free Pastry to roll out and cook with!
Yes it is that easy folks. Now Robyn the founder/creator of these mixes recommended blind baking the pastry once you roll it out and pop it into your dish ready for the filling. I did for my quiche as that was the bigger one but not the little apple pies I made.
For the quiche, I just mixed 2 eggs, some cream, milk, fetta, pumpkin, sundried tomatoes and grated cheese in a bowl and mixed then popped into the pastry shell and cooked it in the oven until it set. It was delicious!
Then I just rolled out little pastries to fit muffin tins, four of them was all I had enough pastry for. Then filled with apple and popped a little cover on it, brushed with milk and sprinkled a little sugar. Baked in a moderate oven until the tops browned. These were really yummy too.
My quiche and apple pies do look a little rustic, thats because my 2 year old sous chef took off with my rolling pin giggling with glee halfway through me rolling it so I ended up spreading the pastry with my hands. It seemed to work as well.
Now I didn’t give you any set quantities for this as I made 2 things out of one batch of pastry. The 700g packet of pastry mix makes 3 lots I think. You can make a myriad of things with this, pies, sausage rolls, quiches, tarts, its so versatile and it is not crumbly at all.
Or… you can be lucky right here and win a LFGF Starter Pack! That is one each of the 700g mixes, Chicken Seasoning, Pastry Mix and Bread Mix!
