Mashed Potatoes are the Ultimate Comfort Food- Without the Gluten, Dairy or Egg

If you have read any of my past blogs, you know it’s all about the Comfort Food. It’s beautiful weather here, so no gloomy day to blame this one on. Sometimes a nice big serving of mashed potatoes can fix anything though!

One of our products from Shiloh Farms in the store is Organic Instant Potato Flakes. They, as the name suggests, come in a flake format, which means you can always have some handy in the pantry. The package is re-sealable and has a recipe for Italian Herb Bread too. Creating mashed potatoes with the Shiloh Potato Flakes is easy. Just add water, butter (or non-dairy margarine substitute) and also Milk, or if restrictions dictate, a non-dairy liquid like soy milk. Easy Breezy!  Gluten and Dairy Free Mashed Potatoes

Within minutes, you have a nice bowl of mashed potatoes…without any mashing (which is my LEAST favorite part!). So, keep these flakes on had, slap something on your grill and Voila, Dinner Served.

Coffee in my Cereal?!

My world is complete now…I love easy breakfasts… and love my coffee even more. I know what you are saying, this really isn’t a recipe, although I did add the milk and the spoon! We just started carrying this organic and gluten free company in our store. Cerealvit is an Italian company that has been around for 30 years. This cereal is called Coffee Flakes and is corn flakes coated with real Italian Coffee. What a concept. If you are a coffee fanatic like me, you will definitely want to try this one. Added benefits, it is low in fat, sodium, Dairy free (if you use soymilk), Egg-free, Yeast-free, Vegan and Cholesterol free. We carry two other cereals from Cerealvit – Benevit Multi Grain Flakes and Corn Flakes. If you are really in a rush, you could even get your coffee fix and breakfast in one dish…

Pasta…Pasta…Pasta

Developed a craving for some comfort food…and not chocolate ( I think I overdosed last weekend!). I pulled out the Organic Wild Rice Penne Pasta from Rozopia and made a quick, but yummy dish. I grilled some italian herb sausages from our local meat market and then just added one of my favorite pasta sauces locally. The Wild Rice Pasta was perfect and a good backdrop for those spicy sausages. Simple, but great! I always keep some pastas in the pantry for quick meals. We carry a wonderful sauce (didn’t have any at home..darn) that is tomato free – Nomato Pasta & Pizza Sauce….next time!                                                                           Rizopia Organic Wild Rice Penne Pasta
