How to Create Gluten-Free Roulade Canapés
Although this gluten-free concoction makes a great lunch, the directions call for slicing the roulades (rolled slices of meat stuffed with filling) to convert them to canapés (another fancy word for appetizer). This may be one of the simpler recipes you’ll ever make; it’s also one of the most impressive to look at.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Refrigeration time: 2 hours
Cooking time: None
Yield: 24 pieces
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup baby spinach leaves, rinsed
2 whole roasted red peppers, each cut in half
4 slices deli ham
4 slices deli turkey
Cut the ham and turkey slices the same sizes (approximately the size of a slice of bread).
Spread cream cheese on each of the ham slices, dividing evenly.
Place 1 slice of turkey on top of each ham slice.
Spread the spinach leaves on top of the turkey slices, and then place a red pepper half at one end of each slice.
Starting at the narrow end of the meat, roll each into a roulade.
Tightly wrap each individual roulade in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 or more hours.
To serve, remove the plastic wrap and cut each roulade into 6 rounds with a serrated knife. Place the pieces, cut side up, on a platter.
