We all need cooking inspiration, but those who are new to the gluten-free diet need it even more. I love to share gluten-free recipes from a variety of bloggers as well as my own. Many of the recipes are also free of dairy and other allergens. You'll also find links to other related content such as menu plans and relevant news articles. Blog by Linda Etherton.
In this week’s gluten-free meal plan, you’ll find a few recipes that would be great for a Memorial Day gathering or graduation party. I’m taking the coleslaw to a baby shower. And although you can easily buy gluten-free buns, my homemade hamburger buns are soft and moist, and you can freeze the extras.
Chicken Parmesan is always a big hit with my family, and it’s great for serving to company too.
Biscuit Crust Pizza means there’s no rise time for the crust. The biscuit dough works best in smaller sizes so it’s perfect for individual pizzas.
Homemade Coleslaw – I honestly can’t get enough of the homemade stuff, and I love taking this to cookouts.
Hamburger Buns – I mentioned these above, but in case you missed it, these buns are soft and moist. And they freeze well too. We use them for burgers or any kind of sandwich. I like to make the buns thick enough to hold a burger but not so thick that it’s hard to take a bite.
Beet Salad – I love what one friend said about this: “I don’t usually like beets, but this is good!” I think the other ingredients in the salad help to balance out the beet flavor. And it’s a beautiful salad!
Baked Oatmeal – Now is the time to enjoy this before the weather gets too hot to bake. You can put it together at night or bake it in the morning. It’s also great for snacks.
Almond Matcha Smoothie – I eat smoothies almost daily once the cold weather passes. They’re great for any meal or snack, but this one is great for getting you going in the morning.
Angel Food Cupcakes – I adore angel food cake and these cupcakes are easier to make than a big cake. They’re great for a party too.
Chocolate Coconut Candy – This is a delicious no-bake, no-cook recipe and it’s much healthier than most chocolate candy.
You’ll find recipes for my favorite soup, easy, tender pot roast, stir fry, and other family favorites in this week’s gluten-free meal plan.
Getting dinner on the table every night can be a chore, but it really doesn’t have to be any harder simply because the food needs to be gluten free. I hope this meal plan gives you plenty of ideas to make your week easier.
Salmon Chowder – This is my favorite soup, and I love it any time of year. Serve it with the drop biscuits below.
This week’s gluten-free meal plan includes a few recipes that any mom will love for Mother’s Day, including Sticky Sesame Salmon, Blueberry Waffles, and Lemon Blueberry Trifle. You’ll also find easy weeknight dinner ideas and a couple of grain-free recipes that everyone will enjoy.

This week’s gluten-free meal plan includes a couple of my husband’s favorite dishes as well as a delicious and easy chicken recipe that’s great for serving to company. My family always loves the bread balls, which are a treat with any meal.
Bacon Wrapped Chicken – This recipe is so easy, and the bacon takes the chicken to a whole new level. It’s perfect for serving to company, especially if you brine the chicken first (which keeps it moist).
Turkey Meatballs in White Sauce – This recipe is dairy-free and can be served with pasta or rice. It’s one of my husband’s favorites and my parents really like it too. Make a double batch of meatballs and freeze the extra for an easy meal the next time.
This week’s gluten-free meal plan includes several slow cooker recipes to make dinner time a breeze. The Mexican beef bowls are really easy, but they’re always a big hit. It’s a great recipe when you have extra mouths to feed, too. Don’t miss the desserts. You can’t go wrong with chocolate cake, but the rhubarb coffee cake is one of my favorites!
This week’s gluten-free meal plan has some of my family’s favorite dinner recipes including baked macaroni and cheese, Mexican chili, and pizza casserole. And the lemon bundt cake is a perfect spring dessert!
Baked Macaroni and Cheese – This is my mom’s recipe for a dish that my family absolutely loves. You can serve it as a vegetarian main dish or as a hearty side dish. It goes great with ham.

You’ll find some really easy and delicious dinner ideas that the whole family will enjoy in this week’s gluten-free meal plan. The homemade hamburger buns turn out nice and soft. I like them much better than store bought ones.
Slow Cooker Chicken and Vegetables – This meal is so easy to make that’s it’s a regular on my menu plan. You can swap out different veggies if you like. Serve it with potatoes, rice, and/or salad.
Chicken and Broccoli Chowder is one of my top 5 favorite soups, and it can easily be made dairy free. It’s a delicious way to use leftover chicken (and nobody feels like they’re eating leftovers).
Taco Rice is a kid-friendly and easy meal. Serve with veggies and dip, salad, or smoothie.
Mashed Cauliflower – This is a great low-carb side dish. If you can eat dairy, try adding butter and/or cheese.
Hamburger Buns – These homemade buns are great for sandwiches of all kinds and they freeze well. They are nice and soft and I like making them fairly thin as opposed to some of the ones you can buy which are really thick.
This week’s gluten-free meal plan includes a some easy and delicious dinner ideas including a couple that are nice for serving to company. The French bread is definitely worth making and so is the homemade pizza crust.

Taco Soup – While the weather is still cool, this is a delicious soup that’s often a hit with kids.
Slow Cooker Chicken & Brown Rice – Put everything in the slow cooker and forget about it for a while. Add some veggies at dinner time, and you have a great meal.
Salmon Chowder – I think this is my absolute favorite soup. Everyone I have ever served it to has said that it’s really good. So this is a must-try recipe.
Pizza – My family has always loved this homemade gluten-free pizza crust. One son always tells me I should sell it. The recipe makes two thick crusts (rectangular baking sheet and round pizza pan) so you can feed the family and have leftovers. Or you can use the recipe for a single crust. It’s a slightly different recipe, but still really good.
Ratatouille is one of my favorite vegetable dishes, and it makes the kitchen smell great too!
French Bread – When fresh and still warm (but not hot) from the oven, this bread will make you feel like you aren’t missing out on anything!
Baked Oatmeal – My parents really enjoy this recipe for breakfast. You can put it together the night before and bake it in the morning. It’s also great for snacks.

Hummus Crusted Chicken requires only three ingredients and is cooked on the stove top for an easy but delicious main dish.
Unstuffed Cabbage – This recipe includes Instant Pot and stove top directions for a delicious meal. If desired you can stir in cooked rice.
Chicken Enchiladas – I use leftover cooked chicken for this recipe. You can cook extra chicken when you make the hummus crusted chicken or pick up a gluten-free rotisserie chicken.
Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew – Ground beef and veggies are combined in this flavorful dish. You can also add potatoes to the pot or stir in some cooked rice after the stew is done.
Salmon Quiche – This recipe uses canned salmon and is a great pantry meal for days when you are out of fresh meat. It uses coconut milk and is dairy free.
Lemon Blueberry Trifle – This a delicious dessert that everyone always loves. I recently made it for my husband’s birthday and I increased the amount of blueberry sauce by half. But it’s great either way and would be a nice Easter dessert.
Date Balls – These treats are grain free and easy to make.
