[hr]FAQ: Is Vinegar Safe?
Thank you for all the time spent on sharing these recipes. I am new at eating Gluten Free and you surely have been a blessing.
what can I substitute for the mushrooms.? in any dish?
I would like to make this but allergic to mushrooms and tomatoes…. I go by my gluten free diet and “4 Your blood type diet book” it really is true because I have always been allergic to citrus. melons and coffee….. and lots of other food….
keep up the good work…. I do make many recipes that I find leaving out food I can’t eat…Flo
We try really hard to create new and flavorful recipes that don’t taste ‘gluten free’. Thanks for the support, it means a lot to us!
In this dish you can use a gluten free bun, or even put over gluten free pasta if you like. In other recipes, lentils or beans would be a good option. Tofu is another idea as well since like mushrooms its soft, has no real taste of its own so it absorbs the flavors of what its cook with.
