Vegan Diner GF Variations

I have been playing around with some of the recipes in Vegan Diner, making them gluten-free. I thought it would be nice to post them here on the site, for those of you looking for gluten-free variations. I won’t include the full recipe, just information on what I substituted.

If you have successfully done this as well with one (or several) of the recipes, feel free to leave a comment below, sharing what you did.

Happy Cooking!

Chocolate Chip Cookies, page 124: I used the awesome gluten-free flour blend recipe from Cybele Pascal (, just scroll down to her red velvet cake recipe and there’s a link to the recipe). I used an equal amount of Cybele’s flour blend, as well as 3/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum. The G-free cookies are so good!

Waffles: I need to find out exactly which waffle recipe this was, but I was told that someone tried out my waffle recipe subbing quinoa flour for the wheat flour, and that it worked great. I’m going to try them with superfine rice flour too (from Authentic Foods), and see how they come out.

    Hi Julie,
    I am using this opportunity to ask you whether or not I could add 1 teaspoon of coffee extract each to both mocha java cake and mocha muffins recipes. Would ti be too strong? Should I reduce the amount of coffee in both recipes?

    Hi Julie,
    I added two teaspoons of organic coffee extract to both Mocha java cake and mocha muffin recipes to bring out more coffee flavor. It is delicious!

    I mix 3 tablespoons of instant coffee granulates with 1 cup of hot water to make 1 cup of strong brewed coffee for baking. Is it too strong?

    I discovered your Everyday Dish a long time ago and used many recipes. When I went to my daughters she had your cookbook and I actually took it home with me. The recipes are amazing.
    With eleven of us for July 4th weekend, all eating vegan, I was wondering if all seitan recipes are good made ahead and frozen. I would like to make the pot roast (sliced), and pastrami. etc. and get it in the freezer so I am not in the kitchen the whole time my children and grandchildren are here. Also, where can I purchase the dairy free malt powder?
    Keep it coming……..everything is great.
