Gluten Free Store Cupboard Essentials

This is based on my experience of being gluten free since 2003, things I can’t do without! I buy the biggest jars or packets possible for best value. You can add these to vegetables in season for a wide variety of tasty healthy recipes.

Tinned tomatoes
Vegan, gluten free bouillon
Yeast extract
Coconut oil
Black pepper
Spices – turmeric, cumin seeds, ground cumin, ground coriander, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, chilli powder, dried chillies, cayenne pepper, paprika, ground ginger, cinnamon, mixed spice, lemon grass, nutmeg. Also fresh ginger, garlic and turmeric.
Herbs (fresh and dried) – mixed herbs, parsley, basil, oregano, mint, frozen coriander leaves, thyme.
