Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger September Roundup 2011

Welcome to the roundup for the September edition of Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger! I hope you will all sign up to adopt your own gluten-free blogger this month with Lauren at As Good as Gluten. Lauren kindly offered to host this month and I am so grateful, because it will give me some much needed time to work on my PhD dissertation. Please show Lauren the adoption love and while you are there, check out her wonderful blog.

I love it when readers are inspired to adopt a blogger even when they don’t have a blog. Ninufar adopted Adventures of Vegirl and made some delicious chickpea pancakes.


Vegan Chickpea Pancakes

Read about her adventures:

I was excited to try this recipe, because it looks pretty simple, and also because I accidentally bought 4 lbs of chick pea flour at once. I made the recipe exactly, omitting optional sweeteners and using the larger amount of water. Putting this together was easy. (See preparation pic.)

Since I don’t own a big griddle, I preheated my one cast-iron pan and my one non-stick pan. Oiled both with spray olive oil, taking the pan off the stove each time. (Safety is good!) I managed to dislodge the burner element under the cast-iron pan while trying to scrape out the third pancake, and in general, I would go with the nonstick pan for these in the future. And medium heat, not low, on my stove.

The final product pic shows some of the gorgeous ones and a few balky ones on the side… the taste was pleasant and nutty, just right. I was so happy they came out, because even with very vigorous whisking, my besan flour still had small lumps in it. All the pancakes cooked through anyway.

Hard-core foodies will likely want to dress these up, but I just put some more applesauce on mine. Something I enjoyed, filled up on, and will be happy to tuck into my lunchbag all week, yay!

Thanks, VEGirl, & thanks Sea for posting this.

  1. Great looking roundup Sea! I aleady have my post ready for this months. (And thanks for adopting me by the way.) :)

  2. I saw most of these adoptions, but I’m still impressed anew seeing them again. Love this monthly event that you created so long ago! Now I must figure out this month’s adoption and get some chickpea flour. ;-)


  3. [...] Now, I’ve told you a lot about Tia and her blog, Glugle Gluten Free, as well as her new website, Max and Mum Kids Activities, but the purpose of these adoptions is to try out at least one of your adoptee’s recipes. The choice for me was clear—one of Tia’s muffin recipes (remember #3?). Her Apple Crumb Muffins seemed perfect for fall and they are! They’re another one of her gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free recipes. The recipe comes together quickly. The muffins are not overly sweet, plus they’re so tender, moist, and most of all, delicious. I took them to my dad’s birthday celebration the other day. Even with a dessert spread of ice cream cake, my brown sugar chocolate chip cookies, and my chocolate silk pie, not even one single muffin made it home with me. There were a few left at the end of our party, but my niece snagged several for her breakfasts and mom quickly stashed the rest under the protection of the glass dome on her cake plate. I could hardly fault either of them. Yes, these muffins are worth adding to one’s repertoire for sure (here are a few more step-by-step photos below), and Tia and her sites are definitely worth adding to your blog reading! And don’t forget to head over to Sea’s for the complete roundup! [...]

  4. Great round-up! I love the fact that each month I meet/learn of a new GF blogger—like Nourishing Flourishing. Thanks for all your work on this.


  5. Awesome round-up Sea! You always do such a great job sharing everyone’s recipes and pics. I love Ninufur played along too! I need to get on the ball and adopt you so I can make some of your amazing dishes!
