How to teach someone to cook GF

calmossimo | May 19, 2013 11:08 PM

A close friend of mine recently discovered a gluten intolerance and has decided that she now needs to learn to cook. I am a decent cook and know my way around my own kitchen and food preferences, and she has asked me to teach her how to cook so she can live a healthier, GF life. The problem is, I've never taught anyone to cook, much less teaching someone to cook GF.

My first instinct is to help her master some basic techniques and go-to recipes based in items that are naturally gluten free. If anyone has recommendations for simple prep, gluten free dishes, that would be much appreciated! One of her requests is not for things that require her to stand over a stovetop for very long -- she is impatient and hates cooking already, so we're going to avoid those recipes altogether for now.
