For me it had become a mirage now! I had abandoned all hope and I did not think I could find a recipe with the right mix of ingredients in order to prepare a soft focaccia without gluten at home as an alternative to bread.
In general, gluten-free replacement flours are the nemesis of softness. The focaccia prepared with this type of flour are often hard and even a little bit bitter.
For the recipe of soft focaccia without gluten I have to thank Tamara Altea, a person with decades of experience in catering, think that for the New Year’s Eve dinner was kind enough to prepare this delicious soft focaccia without gluten as an alternative to bread.
Only the fact of having cooked taking into account my intolerances was a commendable gesture, if we then add the fact that the dishes were also tasty I let you imagine in which positive atmosphere I started the new year.
I’m an incredible romantic, I know, but it’s the small gestures that make the difference, a bit like the small details that transform trivial objects into works of art.
But now we come to the recipe kindly unveiled by my dear friend Tamara, I tried it only once but I must say that the result was satisfactory, I hope with a little training to be able to improve it.
Ingredients for a soft focaccia without gluten:
500 gr of potatoes

Boil and then mash the potatoes, then add the flour.
In a container dissolve the yeast with warm water and sugar, then pour into the mixture of potatoes and flour.
