Presenting Cook Blog Share Week 7
I’ve got a treat for you with this latest round up of recipes – Free From Food for the Soul. Preceding this round up of recipes was Sisley’s Sweet Treats for Spring. Quite a drool worthy collection of bakes to lift the spirits on dull grey days.
My round up is a game of two halves.
Starting with a selection of savoury recipes, followed by a selection of sweet recipes. All are gluten free, or can easily be made gluten free with my tips in the recipe introduction. The theme that stood out from the linked recipes to last week was food for the soul.
The savoury recipes are all packed full of delicious vegetables to squeeze in as many of your five-a-day and boost those much needed vitamins and minerals as we slowly emerge from winter. The sweet recipes give a nod towards the fruits on offer now or soon to be in season and brighter days ahead.
Free From Savoury Recipes
Chloe’s recipe for Creamy Garlic Mushroom Soup is an excellent way to a full tummy. Chloe has given tips on how to swap out ingredients to make this gluten free and a simple swap for a plant based cream means this can be dairy free too.
Eb has mastered the traybake over on Easy Peasy Foodie and this simple, no fuss, washing up friendly bake is ideal. Simple to make gluten free or plant based if you use your favourite safe sausages. Both filling and packed with nutritional and slow release energy goodness.
Naturally gluten free, this recipe for oven roasted veggies by Lesley and Michelle at Lost in Food is a midweek triumph. Great way to get that rainbow of colours into one meal. Psst – this makes veggies actually taste nice!
Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchen added this super meal in one Paella de Carne. I’m imagining a taste explosion with all the elements of this dish. Another great way to fill up, cosy up and have less washing up!
Tips: check your paella rice for may contains and ensure you get a gluten free chorizo.
I’m adding my Leftover Chicken Slice here for good measure, always great to have a leftover recipe in your arsenal. In this recipe write up I give tips on how you can play with this simple method and create a whole plethora of leftover meals so no food need go to waste ever again!

Free From Sweet Recipes
Kate over at Gluten Free Alchemist has combined two super flavours into one delicious crumble. Once you’ve mastered a gluten free crumble topping there’s no end to the flavour exploration and rhubarb is the best place to start, especially with the new season of forced rhubarb out in the early months each year.
Ok, so this is not a dessert as such, it’s the makings of a delicious dessert though. This Mixed Berry Compote by Sisley at Sew White is super quick, easy to make. It also goes well with almost any dessert; cheesecakes, gateau’s, brownies, flans and tarts. Or why not add this compote to your Gluten Free Pancakes
I was impressed with how simple this dairy free recipe for Strawberry Mousses was by Corina at Searching for Spice. Getting hold of freeze dried strawberries may seem a chore but you can get them in the fruit snack section in most large supermarkets now, just blitz them into powder like Corina suggests.
Tips: check for may contains on freeze dried snacks as these factories often produce many snack items
Amy over at The Copper Table added her Peanut Butter, Banana and Oat muffins to last weeks round up. This recipe tickled my fancy. Probably because as I’m writing this it’s 10:58am and I’ve still not had breakfast yet! This is an excellent recipe to give instant energy and keep it coming all day.
Tips: swap the all purpose flour for gluten free plain flour and make sure you use gluten free oats.
Anyone still got some mincemeat rattling around in their cupboards (my hand is up). If, like me, you bought WAY too much in the lead up to Christmas then you may like to try this recipe with apples and mincemeat in this twist on the classic Eve’s Pudding.
WHAT IS #COOKBLOGSHARE?
CookBlogShare is a community for food bloggers to share recipes and foodie posts and generally support the food blogging community. The community is centred around the #CookBlogShare linky.
It is a wonderful way for a wide range of food writers, recipe creators and bloggers to come together and share each other’s recipes.
Each week the host chooses a selection of recipes which have been submitted during the previous week to showcase.

Required – Please also comment on at least one post from that week’s host. Their linked posts will be marked “HOST” in the title. Please note that a host might request that comments are not left on the linky post as this isn’t always the most beneficial place for a host to feel the love!
