Banh Mi Bowls and Other Glorious Gluten-Free Dinners

July 30, 2014

Sadly, gluten-free meals have a stigma attached to them.  Often, we are under the impression that a wheat-free meal is not as tasty as its wheaty counterpart.  These recipes prove that this is simply not true.  They can be adventurous, healthy, delicious and gluten-free all wrapped up into one bite.

Zucchini Fritters
Recipe from The Wimpy Vegetarian

Zucchini fritters use seasonal vegetables to make this delicious gluten-free meal.  Zucchini is shredded using a food processor or boxed grater to ensure that each piece is equal in thickness and size.  Fresh corn is added too. Instead of all purpose flour, corn flour is used to bind the fritters.  The meal is served with a refreshing kale, avocado and mango salad.

Grilled Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad
Recipe from Avocado Pesto

Grilled sweet potato and chickpea salad uses a variety of flavors and textures to make this gluten-free meal a winner.  This salad can be made well in advance and gets better the longer it sits.  You can take it on a picnic or serve it at your next family barbecue.
