24 gluten free vegetarian dinner ideas for delicious weeknight cooking!
While I have been a vegetarian for years, it was not until recently that I had to give up gluten for health reasons.
To be both vegetarian and gluten free can seem intimidating at first.
Luckily I have a lot of experience with gluten free cooking!
Not to say it is not difficult to get adjusted to eating gluten free.
There is gluten in so many things that you do not think about.
As a vegetarian, I sometimes relied on convenience frozen fake meats, which are also now not an option.
Most contain gluten, so I have had to become even more creative in the kitchen!
How do I eat a gluten free vegetarian diet?
Here are some staples for your pantry:
- brown rice
- white rice
- quinoa or other grains
- brown rice pasta
- other favorite gluten free pasta
- fresh fruits and vegetables
- store bought gluten free foods like tortillas, chips, bread
These are just a few of my must haves.
