This is probably one of the most complex recipes I’ve converted since becoming coeliac and it is one of my specialties 🙂 You’ll need two…

Leek puff pastry triangles *

In the north, leek pie is a must. I had some gluten-free puff pastry dough laying around, and instead of making one, I decided to twist things around a little, see what I come up with. These are deliciously crunchy and the leeks melt in your mouth. Perfect as an appetiser, or to eat with…

Gluten-Free Crêpes *
