We use it as a coating, stuffing, and pudding too.
If you have the time, and love to make bread there are a host of recipes to make Gluten-Free bread. One of the first I’ve used is America’s Test Kitchen’s sandwich bread.

Bob’s Red Mill has gained allot of fans with their attention to healthy ingredients. If you’re looking for a recipe that is completely grain free they have a flatbread that looks and feels like pita bread using coconut flour and arrowroot starch.
