Savoury and gluten free treat that will last out of the fridge for a few hours

I've already started a similar thread about what to take my GF friend who is recovering from an op in hospital, but she's said she fancies something savoury now and most ideas are sweet treats.

I'm thinking maybe some kind of GF portable picnic food?

Any genius ideas of things that will travel well and survive outside of a fridge for a few hours?

I would do tamari roasted chickpeas

- Salted mixed nuts? You have to read the label to make sure you pick a pack with no gluten in the seasoning.

- Hardboiled quails eggs?

- Crisps (Seabrooks are gluten-free, as are some flavours of Kettle crisps and I think all of Tyrrells).

Anything with potatoes? I end up with frittatas (eggs and potatoes and bacon) a lot of the time.

I'm just placemarking as ds has a couple of coeliac friends and though I keep gluten free pizzas/pasta/treats in the house and make sure I don't use flour in stews etc if they are around, I'd love to find a few things I could keep in the freezer that are a bit different.

This is what dd made last time.

Maryz, that frittata looks gorgeous

If you can shop at Waitrose or with Ocado, then Isabels cheesbread is fabulous, and as you can't buy them fresh, a real treat. Tescos sell a frozen FF garlic doughballs which are made in the same method and v nice, but not as good as the cheesy loveliness.

I often make sushi rolls for picnics, with tinned tuna, sweet chilli chicken (the precooked breast slices), or shredded carrot in the middle.

yy to frittata.

and home made gluten free cheese straws are reliable. I use doves farm flour.

Cubes of interesting cheese with a variety of radishes and cherry tomatoes, maybe add some celery salt?

Remember there must be no cross contamination when cooking for Coeliac's.

I think most coeliacs are very wary of eating anything cooked by a non-coeliac and with good reason! If you don't know what you're doing w.r.t. cross-contamination, then it's risky.

I learned that the hard way.

Everyone should have to have a coeliac teenager in the house for a week. It does wonders for one's cooking (and hygiene).

What happened Maryz?

Maryz Tue 11-Aug-15 10:52:11

Oh, no, nothing really bad happened.

I just realised how much stuff has gluten in it (herbs and spices for example, most sauces, even crisps) and how often I use ingredients like a bit of flour in a stew.

And he had to have a separate jar of nutella, which made me very aware of the crumb situation in jams, butter etc.

And gluten free pizzas and bread cost a fucking fortune shock

You are right about pizza/bread costs! I make our own pizza, but not practical if you've just got a visiting child.

It's lovely to hear how careful you are re: cross-contamination - most people don't realise/don't take the trouble. I'm training DS to cook, so he can offer to do it when he's at other people's houses (and avoid being poisoned himself....)
