Gluten-Free Entrees

What's for dinner? Solve the dilemma with one of these flavor-filled main meal dishes.

Breakfast Tacos with Cheesy-Hemp-Scrambled Tofu

Rich in protein and minerals, these hearty tacos offer a delectable cheesy flavor thanks to the combination of nutritional yeast and hemp’s healthful fats. Allowing guests to assemble their own tacos makes this breakfast extra easy.

Taco Salad

Homemade refried beans make this a stand-out salad, but the canned version can be used in a pinch.

Lemony Vegetable and Polenta Skillet

Lemony Vegetable and Polenta Skillet

Fresh basil and lemon juice brighten the flavors of a fresh vegetable medley. During recipe testing, we’ve found that the 18-oz. organic packages of prepared polenta have a deliciously creamy-grainy texture, so opt for organic if you can find it.

Eggplant Shakshuka

Eggplant Shakshuka

This version of shakshuka, a Middle Eastern poached-egg dish, adds eggplant and olives to the tomato sauce for a quick vegetable-stew base. Choose the freshest eggs possible for whites that will hold their shape and for more durable yolks.

Black Bean Chilaquiles with Chile Verde

Black Bean Chilaquiles with Chile Verde

To prep the bell peppers quickly, stand each on end, cut the “sides” away from the core, and then slice the sides into strips. Cut strips into desired length or into small dice. If heat isn’t an issue, use medium or hot salsa, but try to find a bottled, chunky one for this dish.

Chowder Primavera

Chowder Primavera

Primavera means “spring” in Italian, and this satisfying soup makes the most of the delicate flavors of springtime veggies. The chowder is thickened with puréed vegetables rather than flour and milk or cream, for a lighter, gluten-free option.

Cajun Risotto

Cajun Risotto

Soy chorizo brings the flavors of andouille, while okra adds a touch of the South to this hybrid of risotto and jambalaya.
