Several of my friends have recently gone gluten-free. Some are doing it because of a fad diet, others have celiac disease, others are doing it because they honestly feel better when they avoid gluten. One of my friends told me how awful she felt when she accidentally ate something with gluten in it.

So I’ve been trying to be more sensitive to their needs. I try to pick restaurant with good gluten-free and vegetarian options. I’ve even tried making gluten free food… with disastrous results. My gluten-free crepes were horrendous no matter how many eggs I added to them.

So when Udi approached me about trying out their product I was happy to help them out. They don’t have any vegan options, but there are plenty of dairy free foods on their roster. Someone like me who is mostly vegetarian was just happy to have the hard part of gluten-free cooking out of the way. I didn’t even really care if the bread tasted like bread, I just wanted to make something that my friends could it.

So I set out to make tea sandwiches to serve. I was pleasantly surprised.

I had bread to work with! Not just bread but good bread that tastes like bread and not cardboard. I can trick Laura into questioning my loyalty. Is it really gluten-free, or am I trying to make her miserable. It’s quite devious.

Udi’s is serious about making gluten-free food that tastes as good as the real thing and they are actually having a contest that you can participate in. Submit your gluten-free recipes to Udi’s Look Again It’s Gluten Free Facebook Contest.

Because I wanted my sandwich to be as special as the bread, I decided to make a very special egg sandwich.

Curried pea and egg sandwich

  • 2 whole hard boiled eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of mayonaise or veganaise
  • 1/2 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons of frozen peas

Instructions

  1. Mash eggs and mix with other ingredients. Peas can be left frozen for some extra crunch or will thaw during the day. But they can also be microwaved and cooled before being added to the mixture.

I just had to serve my sandwich with Udi’s fudge brownies because I found them to be AMAZING.

I’m totally keeping a bag of gluten free bread in my freezer so I can always offer someone at least a sandwich. The brownies… Might not make it until a friend comes to visit.

I loved combining new flavors and gluten free ingredients to create this delicious recipe. Now I’m curious to know, what do you enjoy most about trying something new?

    Heeey, we’re both all up on the gluten-free today! I like the challenge of it–sometimes I get gooey baked messes, other times I get real baked goods. I have a coworker who is gluten free, so I like to make treats we both can eat, since no one else brings in special-diet food.

    Also–tried the almond/coconut milk blend for the first time! It was on sale, so it was the same price as regular almond. It definitely tasted coconutty and had a super-creamy texture, but I think I’ll probably stick with almond, especially when the sale is over.
