When I first decided to stop eating gluten, I decided I wasn’t just going to eat like I had been, with just substituting gluten-free products. I decided to evaluate how much bread I was eating. And I have to say—it was a bit. I love good bread.
So I stopped eating bread and decided to slowly decide what gluten-free substitutes I might want to include in my diet.
One of the first things I missed was rolls. I don’t eat meat, but my grilled salmon burger begged for a roll. As did my occasional tofu dog. (Yes, some are gluten free.)
It didn’t take me long to zero in on what I found fairly tasty. And please note: I have discovered that trying to find a gluten-free substitute that seems exactly like what it is replacing, doesn’t seem quite possible. At least for me.
Finding them may be a little problem. Not every grocery store has a gluten-free section in their frozen foods area. But that’s where you’ll find the rolls.
Udi’s, by the way, is based in Denver and claims to the the number one gluten-free brand in America. Although they started in 1994, they didn’t experiment with gluten-free products until 2008. And the hot dog and hamburger rolls were first brought to market in 2011.
Well, I guess I’ll need to stock up on these rolls, because spring is going to come. (Yes, I’m an optimist.) And maybe by then I’ll have found a gluten-free vegie burger that I like.
