What's WIDE CIRCLE COOKING about?
I blog information, news and recipes about gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, alcohol-free and vegan cooking. Right now I've been working on an exciting project where I avoid refined sugar and create recipes using a range of healthier alternatives.

Happy cooking!

ps. ask all guests if they have an allergy (because the recipes use some unusual combinations and they may not expect to find citrus and soya in the chocolate cake, for example).
pps.if you are cooking for someone with an allergy, please read my allergy page first.

OFF-THE-SHELF VEGAN AND GLUTEN-FREE #1: Waitrose pilau rice


Welcome to my new series on quick-and-easy vegan and gluten-free foods from around the supermarket. Some are designed for making your life easier, the others are foods that might surprise you!

The first on my list is Waitrose's 'Colourful spinach and carrot pilau rice', which makes a tasty lunchtime snack as it requires only three minutes in the microwave. I like to liven it up with a dollop of lime pickle or mango chutney.

Look out for more soon!
