An Australian blogger has created a YouTube video explaining how you can make a gluten free spread for your favourite pasta dish or snack.
In the video, Sarah Smith, a student at the University of New South Wales, explains how she can make an “all-purpose” spread.
“All I want is pasta, so I’m looking for all sorts of different flavours, and I’m using gluten-containing flour and flour substitutes,” she says in the video.
“I love pasta, and there are so many flavours in there, but I also want to be able to have a salad with it, which is where gluten-contaminated flour is a great option.”
So I’ve got gluten-filled pasta, then I’ve added all sorts a flavours, from olive oil, to lemon juice, to cheese, to herbs.
“The next step is to just throw it all in the pan and cook it up, and then add more salt and pepper.”
Smith then explains how to make a “bread-like” spread with garlic butter, walnuts, and walnuts.
“It’s really simple,” she explains.
“When I first tried this I was like, ‘oh, that’s great!
This sounds amazing, it sounds like I can actually eat pasta’,” she said.”
But then after a couple of weeks, I realised I can’t.”
For starters, I can make pasta and rice.
I can put them in the fridge and they’ll be just fine.
“If you make it with gluten, you’ve got to make sure you’re careful with how you do it.”
Smith has also created a gluten and rice flour recipe that she has made into gluten free pasta, but she’s also created gluten free tomato sauce, a pasta salad, and a glutenfree lasagne.
“These are all good, good recipes that people love to make, so that’s what I’m going to try and do with it,” she said in the YouTube video.
The YouTube video has garnered more than 1.3 million views as of Tuesday afternoon.
Smith has also posted a video explaining why gluten-friendly pasta is important, and also how she will continue to promote her gluten-based spread.
