Looking for a gluten-free variation of your favorite food? Right this way...

  1. Quiche Lorraine

    Quiche is often baked in a pie pastry, and some even include flour in the filling. But you can easily make a gluten-free alternative. First, start with the crust. You can use a pre-made gluten-free pie shell, make your own gluten-free pie crust, make a crust using potatoes, or simple prepare a crustless quiche.

    If you need to replace a flour thickener to make a recipe gluten-free, use half the amount of corn starch, potato starch, or tapioca instead.

  2. Linguini Carbonara

    When it comes to replacing noodles, options are plenty. Roasted spaghetti squash, spiraled vegetables, zucchini ribbons, rice noodles, and gluten-free pastas are all satisfying choices. For sauce, most (but not all) pasta sauces are gluten-free; however, many are made in facilities where cross-contamination may be a concern. Read labels carefully and be on the lookout for thickeners that may contain gluten. Otherwise, you can make a simple cheese sauce using milk, Parmesan, and pepper.

  3. Soft Baked Cookies

    There are a ton of peanut butter cookie recipes out there, and unfortunately for anyone on a gluten-free diet, most of them use flour. Although some recipes use just peanut butter, an egg, and sugar, the texture's not the same. That's we developed a gluten-free peanut butter cookie using gluten-free oats instead of flour. Time to preheat the oven!

  4. The Best Grilled Cheese Ever

    Because sometimes you need a break from gluten-free bread. And when that time comes, this Cauliflower Grilled Cheese will be waiting.
