Its National Picnic Week 22-28 June a chance to get out and about in our beautiful countryside and with a picnic it makes a great day out!

We are thinking beyond the traditional sandwich and have collated a few different recipe ideas for you to try… including some delicious gluten free and vegetarian options. We have tried and tested these so would say with confidence they all work well. It can be as simple as some cold meats and some delicious bread, slicing up a pizza or taking some time to put together a picnic full of pizzaz!

Quiche and Frittatas

Traditional Quiche Lorraine or how about a vegetarian version with courgette, feta cheese and pine nuts.

Another favourite is the gluten free quiche made with a sweet potato crust.


2 sweet potatoes peeled and sliced,

1 chopped onion,

clove of garlic,

bag of fresh spinach leaves,

4 eggs,

3/4 cup almond milk,

1/4 cup cheese - cheddar grated or feta crumbled,

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.

Frittatas, Tortillas or omelettes are also a great gluten free option. Here is a recipe for Julie Friend's tortilla.
