Find 20 hearty, gluten-free and vegetarian recipes!

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!
