Italian food has many classics that are worldly renown, and many more traditions that are instead unknown to the masses, mainly because they are mostly home cooked dishes that one would never find in a restaurant.
Sometimes all you want is to fix a quick and easy soup for dinner without spending too much time in the kitchen, right?
…Well, if this it’s one of those times, you ended up on the right page!
In the gluten free pasta world “orecchiette” – one of my absolute favorites – is impossible to find. So one day I took some buckwheat flour and started making homemade gluten free orecchiette with my dad ?
Italians know it well, making gnocchi without the right potatoes can be a key for disaster. Imagine making gluten free paleo gnocchi that are potato free as well!
I just got back to my house in the countryside of Italy and, as always when I am here, I went to stock up on organic produce at the amazing organic farm right next to my town.
You know how it is, we Italians love our tomato sauce ? Tomatoes, especially when it comes to cooking Italian food, are a true staple. Pizza Margherita and Pasta Bolognese are not the same when made without marinara sauce.
One of my first choices when it comes to eating out is always to enjoy some healthy Indian food – and in my mind this meal cannot start without a healthy dhal, an earthy, gluten free lentil soup that I am in love with.
