10 Delicious Vegetarian Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes

Montage of gluten free food.

I wanted to share my 10 favourite Vegetarian Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes today. Although I am not particularly gluten-free myself, I do have many family members and friends who as a necessity have to go gluten-free, and I’ve also had many readers ask me! One thing I’m doing now is re-labelling all of my recipes to reflect their allergy friendly-ness (nut, dairy, egg and gluten) so very soon you’ll have an all encompassing guide! I have started it and it’s right there on the sidebar among other labelling of 30-minute meals, vegan recipes and desserts.

I do hope these recipes help to make your dinner exciting, filling and most of all delicious!

Cheesy quinoa casserole on a white plate.

1) Cheesy Quinoa Casserole (GF) – this has been one of my favourite casseroles to date! I will admit I’m sort of a cheese addict, but it comes together so quickly with ingredients you probably already have in your house.

2) Asian Orange Glazed Tofu with Quinoa (GF + V)  – I loved this but Mr. Bakes LOVED it! The flavours go over so well and trust me, once you prepare tofu properly you’ll love it. (corrected from couscous – you can use either, but use quinoa to stay gluten free)

I’m a kale and chickpea addict, and when you add a crunch factor it makes it even better.

 

Sweet potato and kohlrabi fritters on a white plate.

4) Sweet Potato Kohlrabi Fritters with Yogurt Tahini Sauce (GF)  – I originally listed these fritters as a breakfast but I easily ate them for dinner. The vegetables used translated well to a dinner meal and paired with a side, they make a complete and delicious meal.

Top down shot of lettuce wraps.

5) Asian Lettuce Wraps (GF + V) – These wraps were one of my favourite posts on the blog to date. They were SO good, so filling and so inventive with the walnut meat! You definitely wouldn’t know that it wasn’t meat.

Slice of vegetable lasagna on a white plate.

6) Vegetable Lasagna (GF) – once you use gluten free lasagna noodles, this lasagna is automatically gluten free. You’ll love the layers of cheese, meaty vegetables and the sauce!

Baked eggplant on a white plate with salad.

7) Almond-Crusted Baked Eggplant (GF + V)  – I’ve already gotten reader feedback that these are a well loved recipe – the multiple textures make it so good and it’s a great way to use up your eggplants.

8) Honey & Lime Quinoa Salad Bowl with Spicy BBQ Chickpeas (GF) – This salad had all the elements of a complete meal and the bbq chickpeas was my favourite part. My tip for bowl food? Mix all the ingredients together and get a bite of everything in each forkful.

9) Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers with Strawberry BBQ Sauce (GF + V) – These burgers make the perfect Friday night dinner and were pretty darn tasty! The Strawberry BBQ Sauce just takes it over the top!

Quinoa and Corn Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing on a long white plate.

10)  Quinoa and Corn Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing (GF) – I just posted this, but I really enjoyed it and had it several nights this week. This is seriously (again) one of my favourite salad combinations and is effortlessly gluten free.

    I love all these meals! We have tried the both Mexican quinoa meals, lo mien, enchilada orzo (my favorite), and the burrito bowls (my 2nd favorite). They have all been easy to make and so, so, so good. Working on trying all these recipes. I appreciate that they are easy and I do not have to run to specialty stores to get everything!!

    I love most of these, but couscous is definitely not gluten-free! It’s made from wheat.
