I am super excited about this Gluten-Free French Baguette recipe. A baguette is a loaf of white French bread shaped like a thin long loaf. The bread is crusty on the outside and soft and pillowy on the inside.  If you love white bread, this recipe is for you. This gluten-free version of the famous French baguette is so delicious.

The recipe is super easy to whip up using only 7 ingredients plus the basics such as water and salt. There is no lengthy kneading, and the results are exceptional. This gluten-free bread is a typical French baguette that we know and love. I never thought I could create a gluten-free French baguette that tastes this good. I promise you will love this French bread. The picture says it all, a perfect crusty French baguette. 

Why do we love crusty French baguette?

There are many reasons why French bread or baguette is so popular. Firstly it tastes so good, and it is super addictive. Just think, soft white bread with a crispy crust. All you need is butter, and you could probably eat the entire baguette. But there are many other reasons why we love this bread. My favourite is bruschetta, an antipasto often served in Italy. The bread is toasted or grilled, rubbed with fresh garlic, brushed with good quality olive oil and topped with variations of fresh tomatoes, veggies, meats or cheeses. In France, a baguette is often served with pate or cheese and of course, a glass of good wine. But the most popular way to serve baguette is as a sandwich or warmed up panini generously filled with all the delicious things we love.

You must try this recipe, trust me on this 🙂 With the holiday season approaching, and with many people suffering from gluten intolerance this gluten-free bread will make a perfect appetizer. All you have to do is slice the bread,  toast, lightly brush with extra virgin olive oil and top with fresh tomatoes, sprinkle of salt, basil and finely chopped garlic. You can also add some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Done! If you are looking for a basic white sandwich bread try this gluten-free white bread recipe.
