Coeliac Awareness Week runs this year from the 9th – 15th May, and Aldi has a range of Specialbuys, and Award-winning gluten free foods in store, which means you don’t have to compromise on taste.
Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition where the body reacts to gluten within your diet. When gluten is eaten, the body mistakenly attacks the digestive system, causing damage that impedes the body’s ability to absorb vital nutrients correctly.

3. Cut the sweetcorn in half lengthways, then put the corn on its side and cut down the length of the cob. Put the raw cobs in a microwave for 30 seconds, then cut into 3, lengthways from top to bottom.
4. Put the 12 ribs in the bowl and rub with the oil. Put them on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast for 20 minutes until crispy.

3. Place the eggs into a small mixing bowl, season and whisk together.
4. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook on a medium heat until the sides and top of the omelette are just set.
