The American Food Store and Dior Diarama have a corn tortilla mix (different then just corn flour) that is great! I’ve taught my house-helper to make the corn tortillas and then freeze them. They are very time-consuming and not as easy to make as flour tortillas. I use them to make an enchilada casserole and as personal-size pizza crust.
At many stores (Hypermarché and CityDia)they carry gluten-free boxed cookies. I like the chocolate ones for making pie crusts.
Maggi Arome liquid seasoning is a great gluten-free substitute for soy sauce.
Almond flour (1kg for 9,000cfa – expensive, but worth it) can be purchased at Patisen downtown. If you order enough from them, they will deliver.
Gluten-free chocolate chips can be purchased at Omega 3. They are the mini chocolate chips and come in a 7-kilo box.
Quinoa can be purchased at CityDia. (Some of it has traces of gluten so read labels).
The only corn starch that I have found to be gluten free is Maizena- if you find it, buy lots because it comes and goes. (Just seen at CityDia Mermoz!)
The best corn flour that I have found is at Hypermarché. It is in a clear plastic package and is very fine. Great for making corn bread.
Read labels very carefully. There are somethings that you would think are gluten-free, but they have traces!
Thank you, Mindie! Anyone else have tips to share with us?
