Good morning! I’m sipping from a giant mug of coffee with Cookie curled up on my feet, so we’re off to a good start. Today, I thought I’d share a collection of my favorite recipes that are both vegetarian (as always) and gluten free. These are the kinds of dinners that we make at girls’ night, since two of us follow gluten-free diets and I complicate matters by being a vegetarian.
The more restrictions, the more difficult menu planning can be, but I hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration below! You’ll see rice-based dishes, like risotto and Mexican meals, some creative quinoa dinners, hearty salads, quiche and more.
I had a hard time narrowing down the options to an even twenty, so click here for my complete gluten-free category. You can always access it by hovering over ALL RECIPES in the header menu, then mousing down to DIET > GLUTEN FREE. Enjoy!
“This was great!! Super easy and yet it also had depth of flavor. I enjoyed it very much. Served it with quinoa instead of rice!” – Sara
“This was delicious (and so pretty too!). I’ve made a full recipe so that I’d have leftovers for work. Thanks for the suggestions on storing; it travels well!” – Patricia
“Made this tonight and it was delicious! I’m normally not a huge fan of beets but the tangy dressing worked really well and masked the usual “earthiness” of the beets (even the beet-hating bf couldn’t resist a couple bites ;p). Topped it with a fried runny egg and it was a great post-workout dinner :)” – Emily L.
No. 4: Thai Pineapple Fried Rice
“That was super delicious and easy. I love the recipe you adapted it from but I may like this one even more. My meat eater husband loved it too. More stir fries like this please! :)” – Kerry
“I absolutely LOVED this recipe, the green rice was a delicious addition and everything paired together so well. I made this recipe for my friends last night and they had nothing but good things to say, thanks for a new favorite Kate!” – Monica
“Made this recipe last night and it was amazing! Not only was the dish delicious and super simple to make, I was even able to do some cleaning during the 40 minutes before it was time to prepare the mushrooms. For those of us who are always looking for ways to multi-task and get things, done, this recipe is great for that!” – Veronica
“Wow, this was seriously delicious! My husband is a die hard carnivore and this dish had him trying to spoon up every last drop, including what we had originally planning on saving for lunch the next day :)
I am going to try to use this peanut sauce in a few other dishes as well, it’s just that good!! We served the cabbage wraps with fresh grilled corn and felt like we were eating a meal beautiful and delicious enough to be featured on a magazine cover. Thank you so much for sharing!” – Beth
“Hi! This recipe has been on my ‘to try’ list for weeks and I finally made it for dinner for me and my family tonight. We loved it! And I have two children who are not easy to please! Hats off to you–thank you for another fabulous recipe.” – Lisa
“These are to-die-for. The pickled radishes were easy and are excellent as a garnish (or even by themselves). I ate leftovers from this dish twice this week– just as delish as the first time! Warmed corn tortillas are key.” – Sarah
“I’m going to be honest – I was skeptical about this…I typically don’t like fruit in my salad. However, something about this recipe really intrigued me. I’m sure glad it did, because this salad is delicious. I’ve made it multiple times already! It taste just like summer! Thank you!” – Elena
“I made this for dinner last night. What an absolute winner! The slightly charred and bitter sprouts balanced perfectly with the sweet sauce (that is delicious!) and the nutty rice tied into the sesame seeds. Super tasty and amazingly put together dish. Thanks!” – Kath
“I LOVE this salad. I’ve been making it with dill only and serving with arugula. I make a batch and take to work for lunch. Got some family hooked on it too. It’s so fresh!” – Sarah
No. 13: Quick Vegan Chana Masala
“I just made this yesterday. It was really quick and SO good. I have tried other ‘quick chana masala’ recipes but this was by far the best. Thanks!” – Steff
“Well, this is a first as my husband (who is not a big fan of quinoa) raved about how good this turned out! Thanks so much for your yummy recipes – so healthy too!” – Diane
No. 15: Spicy Vegan Black Bean Soup
“As I’m sharing the link to this recipe for the umpteenth time, I had to comment and let you know how much this soup has become a weeknight staple for me. It is so simple, yet so absolutely rich and delicious! It has saved me from take-out on more than one occasion, and I make sure to always have four cans of black beans on hand “just in case”. Thanks!” – Kathryn
“This quiche base made with almond meal was awesome. My 21 yr old son said it was the best quiche base he had ever tasted. So easy to make and so delicious. Thanks so much.” – Jacque
“This was my first recipe from this blog & it was AMAZING. I have tried & failed at brown rice for years. It turned out perfectly here. Wouldn’t change a thing. Looking forward to enjoying this for lunch the rest of the week, and trying many more recipes!” – HM
No. 18: Sweet Potato & Black Bean Veggie Burgers (the burgers themselves are gluten free, so just serve them on gluten-free buns or a salad or whatnot!)
“Made these last night, AMAZING. We didn’t have millet though, so I subbed for the old quinoa in my fridge. Luckily did the trick! Thanks Kate, another stellar recipe.” – Kelly G
No. 19: West African Peanut Soup
“I LOVED this. Seriously delicious. Adding this to the list of recipes that make me happy to be vegan. Thank you!” – Jen
No. 20: Portobello and Poblano Fajitas
“These are ridiculously good, I’ve now eaten them four times in two weeks, I believe I have developed a habit. Thanks so much for sharing :D” – Emily
