Gluten Free Kale, Gouda & Portobello Bread

Happy day after Super Bowl Sunday! I know not all of you get as crazy about the Super Bowl as I do but for me the weekend was centered around throwing a small party to watch the game and the commercials, obviously! 😉 

We also munched on lots of yummy, healthy food including this Kale, Gouda & Portobello Bread! 

Growing up, my mom always made pepperoni bread and before eliminating gluten from my diet, it was one of my favorite comfort foods to eat. I’d eat it warm, cold, on the go and of course while just lounging in front of the TV.  

Unfortunately, once I gave up gluten, I pretty much gave up treating myself to this carbolicious treat.  To be honest, I pretty much resided myself to the fact that it would just be something that I’d have to give up and I didn’t really miss it unless I was at a gathering or party where it was being served.  

So when my husband suggested that he was going to make spinach bread for our Super Bowl party I was kinda bummed- not only can’t I have gluten but I also react to spinach to due to my histamine intolerance.  Seeing my disappointment, he suggested we make gluten free kale bread as well! Um, yes please!

Gluten Free & Vegetarian Kale, Smoked Gouda and Portobello Bread Recipe for Meatless Monday

While this bread does include gouda and I typically don’t eat dairy, I figured eliminating 2 of my 3 triggers would be enough so I could enjoy a slice.  

That’s the thing about being histamine intolerant, it’s not a single ingredient that causes a trigger (though some cause a reaction quicker than others), it’s the culmination of the level of histamine in the food or irritant that causes a reaction.

Anyway, for those of you who aren’t concerned with histamine, this gluten free bread stuffed with kale, gouda and baby portobello mushrooms is a slice of carb heaven!

Kale, Gouda & Portobello Bread {Gluten Free}



  • 1tbsp olive oil

  • 1 8oz carton baby portobello mushrooms, chopped

  3. Cook until soft then add in kale.  Continue to cook until wilted down. 
  4. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  5. On a large piece of parchment paper, roll out dough dusting with gluten free flour or corn meal so that it doesn’t stick.

  7. Top with slices of gouda.
  8. Fold sides on top so that the mixture is completely covered. 
  9. Transfer to baking sheet and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Remove, slice, serve and enjoy! :)

This looks sooo good! I'm going to have to get some dough to try this out. I haven't seen a bread dish in a long time that I have wanted to try this badly! yum!

Reply February 8, 2016

You had me at portobello and gouda. YUM!!! I would probably go way to overboard on this bread!

Reply February 8, 2016

Oh my family loves Gouda (my hubby is Dutch so it's "the cheese")! I will have to make this for them.
For Super Bowl umm take my husband to the airport and have a long drive home in the crazy wind and snow so we made it just before half time and the girls and I had popcorn casserole (just popcorn) and ice cream for "dinner" haha since we didn't really have any time to whip up game day food and all we really cared about was the commercials and half time show.

I've never had kale bread, but this recipe looks so good! I've pinned it already so that I can actually make it instead of just drooling looking at the pictures. ;-)
