Recently, I had the opportunity to try out some yummy new items from President’s Choice new line of gluten free & lactose free products. The idea behind these new items is that you don’t have to sacrifice flavor or texture to create amazing meals which are inclusive to those who have food sensitivities. In my world, I have many friends with allergies or intolerances but I never want them to feel as though they have to be catered to, or feel excluded from the meals I create. That’s where these new products really come in handy because they are absolutely delicious!
I whipped up a few gluten free pasta dishes and was really impressed. In fact nobody could tell the difference between the gluten free pasta and the regular ones I cook with. I also made some nachos using their lactose free cheeses and sour cream and the cheese was so melty and creamy and tasty, it was fantastic. Lastly, I baked some chocolate cupcakes with the gluten free chocolate cake mix and they were light and fluffy as cupcakes should be. The star of the show for me was the gluten free spaghetti (shown here with a simple aglio e olio) Absolutely tasted amazing and had fantastic texture.
I would highly recommend all the new President’s Choice products which are available at your local Real Canadian Superstore. And be sure to visit PC.ca for recipe ideas and product information.
