It’s true that shoving cheese in your face is kind of the world’s best appetizer. Well, unless dairy makes you double over and wish you were dead. Then, it’s the world’s WORST appetizer. But for those of you who are gluten- and dairy-free, you already knew that.
So I sorted out how to make the gfdf crowd feel like, “Whoooo! There’s a party!” without all the gas. DONE.
I will admit that I kind of shoved the pesto pizza all up in my mouth before anyone else could get it. Sorry everybody, but that Kinnikinnick gluten-free dairy-free pizza crust right out of the oven? Damn, it’s crispy. The pesto spread makes it super flavorful and dunking it right into the marinara makes it the perfect appetizer.
Saddled up next to that magic are the Schar’s Italian bread sticks (gfdf, natch) wrapped in proscuitto. Yes, Italians can still eat gluten- and dairy-free, my friends. And eat well. What’s that next to tha’ sticks? Sure, you may say popcorn is easy peasy, but this is a very special popcorn. Popcorn Indiana makes a sriracha popcorn (gfdf, see a pattern?) that you could probably sort out how to make yourself, but hey, buy it and you have more time to relax before the par-tay.
And finally, that hunk of char you see up there is actually a super delicious cauliflower bake. I’ve been seeing all of these recipes for roasting up a full head of cauliflower and I tried this one. The recipe says to roast it for an hour to an hour and a half, but it was so charry after 45 minutes, I just had to pull it out of the oven. It was good. Dang good. And guess what? GFDF, mother scratchers!
