We are big fans of Bob's Red Mill. They are one of the few brands that offer gluten-free products that our local grocery store consistently carries. When we were recently given the chance to review Bob's Red Mill, we chose 3 products we hadn't yet tried in hopes of finding some new favorites:
Polenta Corn Grits, Shortbread Cookie Mix and Homemade Wonderful Bread Mix
Grits are a true southern staple. Bob's Red Mill Corn Grits helped me cook up a delicious batch of cheesy grits in just minutes. Preparation is a snap and the results: a truly decadent, creamy dish of home cooked comfort food!
Here's the recipe I used from Iowa Girl Eats modified to feed 4:
Bring 3C chicken broth and a pinch of salt to a boil in a saucepan then add 1C grits and turn heat down to medium low. Whisk almost constantly for 3-4 minutes or until thickened but still creamy, lifting the pan for a few moments if the grits start to spatter. Remove pan from heat then stir in 2T butter and 1C Parmesan cheese. Place a lid on top then set aside. Taste, then add salt if needed before serving.
You can serve them up as a bed for saucy chicken and veggies or shrimp, or eat plain. Either way, they are divine!
The shortbread cookies were a little tricky to prepare...gluten free dough is usually a little tricky though. The end result was definitely worth it! These buttery shortbread cookies were a bit crumbly, but melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
The Homemade Wonderful Bread mix was easy to prepare using my stand mixer. B said it was pretty good for being gluten free. If you've eaten gf bread, you know it's really hard to get a good texture AND a good taste in any single loaf. That being said, we will definitely be using Bob's Red Mill Homemade Wonderful Bread Mix again!
If you eat a gluten free diet, be sure to check out the great selection of gf products from Bob's Red Mill!
