Fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes add so much nutrition to a gluten-free diet — however, their flavor is the main reason I eat them, and I enjoy fresh tomato recipes like this salad. One way to serve them, alone or with other vegetables, is with one of my favorites, this gluten-free salad dressing.
A perennial dinner favorite in my house is Creamed Tuna. It’s good when I’m short on time and I need to go shopping, but we’re hungry right now…so my gluten-free diet also has to satisfy everyone in the family.
The foundation of this easy dinner is a medium white sauce. I learned a long time ago that a basic white sauce or cream sauce is a kitchen standby, and it’s just as useful for a gluten-free diet as it is for gluten-y cooking. It works for a lot of my favorite 30 minute meals!
Chicken strips, red tomatoes, green kale and cream-colored pasta – I like how an easy chicken dinner can have such eye appeal. Some people who won’t normally eat many veggies will happily chow down on these mixed with pasta.
This gluten-free chicken penne is quick to prepare – 30 minutes or less. I used Tinkyada penne when I made this chicken pasta recipe but any pasta you like will work.
Somewhere during the day I need to have a crisp salad. Whether it’s at lunch or a between meal snack or at dinner, a salad is a major part of my gluten-free diet. The bold flavor of raw kale goes well with the sweet and tangy flavors of carrot, tomato, onion and more, for a pick-me-up to even the most ordinary day.
These delightful rounds of gluten-free crab meat were not a dish I learned about when I was very young, but as soon as I tasted them, I wanted to make up for lost time. Whether I use almond flour or breadcrumbs to make them, these crab cakes seem more impressive than the effort they take to prepare. The whole family will like them whether they need to eat gluten-free or not.
I love to cook this colorful skillet full of some of my favorite veggies, all of which are ideal for a gluten-free diet. Even better, they’re also in season right now so you may be able to find them at your local farm market. Each is good by itself, but combining them is even better! You’ll have a powerful punch of antioxidants and vitamins if you eat this dish, especially vitamins A, B, C, E, K and folate, not to mention minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.
