Gluten-Free Oat-Free Challah V2

Gluten-free oat-free challot ready for Shabbat

This challah is for when we have guests who can not eat oats. Our regular challah is gluten-free oat challah. Version 2 of oat-free is basically the same as my Version 1 recipe, but I’ve just simplified and updated it a little.

Disclaimer: Version 2 has one outstanding question. I lost track while measuring quinoa flour and may have added it twice. Whatever I did was delicious. I have to make it again and update this recipe to be sure of the quantity of quinoa flour.

Passover Cauliflower and Mushroom Kugel

Modified from “The Gefilte Manifesto” at their suggestion for passover.  This is a parve Gluten Free variant.  They recommended a 9 Inch square glass baking pan (actually their first recommendation was individual ramkins), but it’s passover, so a smart and final 9 by 12 inch aluminim 1/2 steam pan.  The Steam pan is 25% larger than the recommended pan, so I’m quadrupling the recipe and making three.  The ingredients are list for one recipe.
