Gluten Free 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 creation.  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 Football Sunday recently 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!
