After years of dealing with health issues, Austin-based food blogger Claire Cary found the culprit: celiac disease. After she was diagnosed, Cary started a blog to document how she creates new recipes to fit her dietary needs. Recipes on her blog are gluten-free, and several include vegetarian and vegan options.
Cary’s crave-worthy vegan chocolate mousse is made with silken tofu, of all things, (don’t knock it till you try it). Other gluten-free recipes are inspired by childhood favorites or restaurant classics.
When it comes to making gluten-free twists on her favorite dishes, Cary says, getting the flavor right is simple but the textures can be challenging: “It takes a lot of trial and error, and testing different flours.” This silky and creamy chocolate mousse hits the mark.
