In Brittany buckwheat crepes are EVERYWHERE. They’re found in restaurants, at street vendors and in every supermarket chain. As a gluten-free person traveling in France, buckwheat crepes became one of my go-to food items.
If you are uncertain about making dairy cultures, or fermenting in general, I recommend starting with yogurt (and sauerkraut… but that’s a different topic).
I’ve really gotten good at my gluten free baking… like incredibly, amazingly, stupendously good. Even gluten munching, bread crunching, Brad admits that my gluten free baking has great flavour and texture. So what has made the difference? Was it skill? Was it some complicated new technique?
I love having granola for breakfast. Not only is it quick, healthy and filling, it has a delicious crunchy toasted flavour that pairs nicely with fresh fruit and kefir (my preferred way to eat it).

However, my favourite vegan yogurts for simply eating on their own are made using nut milks. The difference between nut milk yogurts and other milks are that they require a…
Making your own dairy-free yogurt is very simple, inexpensive, and it is great way to make sure that you are getting a good dose of probiotics in your diet. I played around with a few different dairy free milks and different ways of thickening the yogurts to find the combinations that seemed to reliably make…
