7 Days of Gluten-Free Dinners
Whether you have celiac disease (an allergy to gluten), want to eat less gluten or are just looking for tasty dinner ideas, this 7-day gluten-free meal plan helps you get dinner on the table. The recipes in this plan take advantage of healthy and naturally gluten-free foods like potatoes, mushrooms, salmon and more. You even get your "pasta" night with zucchini noodles! These pre-planned meals make eating gluten-free tasty and easy, just like it should be. Enjoy.
To be safe, always check food labels for hidden sources of gluten.
Day 1: Spanakopita Loaded Potatoes
Spanakopita Loaded Potatoes: In this healthy take on twice-baked potatoes, spinach, feta, garlic and oregano are stuffed into the potato shells along with the mashed potatoes. Serve with pan seared steak sprinkled with oregano or marjoram and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Grilled Portobellos with Chopped Salad: This salad of grilled vegetables and beans tossed with lemon and dill tops grilled portobello mushrooms smothered in melted fontina cheese for a delicious, gluten-free vegetarian main course.
Seared Salmon with Sugar Snap-Fennel Slaw: A light and summery snap pea-and-fennel slaw makes a crisp bed for the seared salmon in this healthy dinner recipe. The delicate fennel fronds add more mild licorice flavor to the dish. Serve the salmon with a delicious gluten-free grain like quinoa, wild rice or creamy polenta.
Day 4: Chicken & White Bean Salad
Chicken & White Bean Salad: Zucchini and celery give this satisfying chicken-and-bean salad a nice crunch. We like serving it over a bed of slightly bitter escarole and radicchio, but any type of salad greens will work.
Butternut Squash & Black Bean Tostadas: The butternut squash-and-black bean base in these healthy gluten-free tostadas has a mild, sweet-spicy flavor thanks to ancho chile powder. If you can't find ancho chile powder, other mildly spicy chili powder can be used. Serve with your favorite hot sauce and enjoy with a delicious Skinny Pineapple Margarita.
Day 6: Summer Squash Pad Thai
Summer Squash Pad Thai: In this "spiralized" vegetable noodle recipe inspired by pad Thai, zucchini and summer squash replace the noodles, pumping up the vegetables, reducing calories and eliminating the gluten. Top the dish off with with stir-fried chicken, shrimp or tofu for added protein, if desired.
Mediterranean Cauliflower Pizza: In this healthy, gluten-free cauliflower "pizza" recipe, shredded cauliflower is mixed with mozzarella and oregano to make a flourless crust that echoes the flavor of a traditional pizza pie. The Meyer lemon, olive and sun-dried tomato topping adds a sophisticated Mediterranean flavor, but feel free to try more traditional pizza toppings, such as marinara sauce and mushrooms-even pepperoni. Serve with a leafy green salad with red-wine vinaigrette.
