Our household went gluten-free for several years, but there were, and still are, many gluten-free foods that don’t sit well with me. Particularly the ones that have measurable amounts of xanthan gum or guar gum. Which is why I was excited to see Amy’s Organic Gluten-Free Sandwich Rounds. Their recipe is not only dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free, it’s also gum-free and contains no additives! But how do they taste? We tried them with Amy’s Veggie Burgers and were uniquely impressed.
Amy’s Organic Gluten-Free Sandwich Rounds are also Gum-Free and Vegan
Without any common binders, you might be wondering if these babies simply crumble in your hands. I know I was! But, they are in fact quite cohesive.
Here’s the catch. These gluten-free sandwich rounds remind me of sturdy pancakes. A brilliant idea indeed, and I’m not complaining, but these “buns” are what I would call a cross between flatbread and pancakes. That said, they work great for sandwiches, and are the gluten-free answer to those low-calorie “one buns” that everyone raves about.
