Er... and also substituting the oats. If you want oats that haven't been processed/contaminated with wheat, you have to order them specially online. And even then there's still debate over whether the protein in oats is sufficiently similar to gluten to cause problems anyway. Somewhere around half of celiac sufferers say they suffer pain from even the purest certified gluten-free oats.

But you could use quinoa!

Clod, have you tasted Quinoa ? Is it good tasting ?

One of my G-kids seems to have a mild aversion to breads, but does eat oatmeal.
He talks about wanting to find some other kind of cereal.

What's for breakfast? I'm thinking venison tenderloin, scrambled eggs, and grits. W/wheat toast.

Lamp - I love quinoa.
Similar to couscous, but more... meaty? chewy? crunchy?
It's just a nicer mouthful with more texture. You feel you're really eating something.

Lamp, Sundae's right, quinoa is fairly bland by itself, and the texture is like a bulkier couscous. You can also get quinoa "flakes," and that texture is more like instant oatmeal (very similar to rice cereal, if you've been around baby food anytime recently.)

Really? So not something I would entertain the thought of -even as a dessert. Horses for courses, though, at least it wasn't boring!

I met a celiac person's wife the other day and she told me that if you stirred regular pasta in the cooking water with the same spoon as his GF pasta, he would violently hurl almost immediately.

I'd say you'd pretty much have to buy your oats from the farmer and thresh them yourself. There is so much cross contamination and if you're anything as sensitive as this guy, I'd pretty much only eat vegetables.

Quinoa is pretty good and its flavor is immeasurably improved by lightly toasting in a cast iron pan first.

Minifobette's not that sensitive, but Minifob is. Except instead of hurling, he screams, spins in circles, and refuses to make eye contact with you. And then has explosive diarrhea.

I've never heard of toasting the quinoa--are you supposed to do that before or after you boil it?

Before. A lot of grains develop much more complex and nutty flavors when you pre toast them. I think it is more of the Maillard reaction, caramelizing the sugars creating new flavor compounds, etc.

Supposedly this is true of chocolate, but not pre-toasting. I think you are supposed to pour boiling water over the cocoa powder and it intensifies the chocolate flavor.

Some nuts are also more flavorful when toasted, hazelnuts for example.

Toasted bagel with strawberry cream cheese.

The kids will have Toaster Scrambles. That's those square-shaped creations in the freezer with egg, bacon and cheese stuffed inside. Except they never can wait for the toaster oven to make them right so they cook them in the microwave so they're kind of mushy and gross.

Oh, wait, you say MOM is supposed to cook breakfast for her children before school? ::yawn:: Dang. Six is just too early for that crap.
