"This is an awful recipe. Just doesn't work at all. The whole thing still looked just like flour after adding the amount of liquid in the recipe. Wasted a load of ingredients trying it so you don't have to."
"Has anyone used a pasta machine to roll this out? I have had success with egg based GF pasta (with enough xanthan gum) to roll carefully through the pasta machine. Wondering if theres enough hold to do it with this one. Looking forward to trying!"
"This recipe needs a lot of work. The proportions are not correct and the instructions need more work and clarity."

Gluten Free Cooking Tips
"Cook with as many naturally gluten-free foods as possible, preferably ones without labels like avocados, apples, and eggs. When you do this, you know your food doesn't contain hidden gluten and it's healthier than anything that comes out of a can or bag." - Jenny Finke from goodforyouglutenfree.com
"If you’re new to gluten free cooking and baking, I recommend that you start with recipes that are specifically made gluten free instead of trying to convert non-gluten free ones. Things like types of flour can affect the recipe completely, so this is a much safer place to start at. I would do this for a while until you are more comfortable with the different type of gluten free flours." - Jessica Hylton-Leckie from jessicainthekitchen.com
"To avoid cross-contamination in the pantry and on the shelves, never put a box of whole wheat pasta next to a box of Banza, get my drift? Make designated gluten-free shelves and cabinets any non-gluten-free foods and products." - Rebecca from strengthandsunshine.com
"Xanthan gum is a GREAT ingredient to pair with your gluten free baking. It helps to thicken recipes, acting as gluten to get them to hold together essentially. It varies and if your recipe calls for a certain amount you should use it, but generally I use 1 teaspoon per cup for cakes and desserts, and up to 2 teaspoons for breads and pizzas." - Jessica Hylton-Leckie from jessicainthekitchen.com
"Another tip is to bake with nutrient dense almond flour. Almond flour contains protein and healthy fats whereas typical grain-based flours are devoid of nutrition and quickly convert to sugar in your body. Almond flour makes baked goods super moist so you almost feel like you're eating gluten again!" - Jenny Finke from goodforyouglutenfree.com
"For the most part all metal and stainless steel, glass, ceramic, hard plastic types of these dishes and utensils are fine when thoroughly washed. Just make sure they are thoroughly washed and dried with no stuck on gunk (like in between the fork prongs), before using in a gluten-free meal.
No wooden utensils! Unless they are strictly only used for gluten-free foods and kept in a gluten-free drawer. Wood is porous and gluten gets trapped in there no matter how many times you wash it (i.e. that old wooden spoon). Nix the wood and opt for metal. Now a note on plastic. Most hard plastic is fine, but some plastic is porous like wood. So when it comes to things like cutting boards and colanders, get new gluten-free only ones. Gluten particles are too easily trapped in these things." - Rebecca from strengthandsunshine.com
"Sometimes gluten free flours can be expensive to buy, but you can actually make your own! I love making almond meal at home, sorghum flour, and brown rice flour." - Jessica Hylton-Leckie from jessicainthekitchen.com
"Coconut flour is a great gluten free flour for thickening roux, soups and curries. Use it sparingly because it is very powerful!" - Jessica Hylton-Leckie from jessicainthekitchen.com
"Gluten free flours last much longer when they are kept in your fridge. It keeps them potent and long lasting, so that it’s available whenever you’re ready to use it." - Jessica Hylton-Leckie from jessicainthekitchen.com
