21 Gluten Free Dinner Ideas
I'm trying to get more organized in the new year. A big part of that is streamlining dinner by planning meals in advance. So, I've been combing through my recipes and cookbooks to make a master list of all the meals my family enjoys. It turns out we eat a much larger variety that I thought!

For all of these ideas, it's assumed that you'll use all gluten free ingredients. Many of them are naturally gluten free, exactly as written, but you will need to tweak a few. For example, if the recipe calls for soy sauce or pasta, make sure you use the gluten free version.

Gluten Free Dinner Ideas 


  1. Taco salad
  2. Baked penne (gf pasta)
  3. Black eye peas with ham and cabbage
  4. Steak fajita salad
  5. GF chicken nuggets with homemade fries and a side salad 
  6. Baked potato bar with a variety of toppings, including sour cream, cheese, butter, broccoli, and leftover meat (try chicken, barbecue, steak, taco meat, or any other meat!)
  7. Meat loaf (use GF bread crumbs or bread alternative, or skip the bread crumbs), mashed potatoes, and broccoli
  8. Shrimp scampi with gluten free pasta
  9. Baked stuffed shells w/ gf shells
  10. Chicken and rice soup
  11. Four cheese broccoli and chicken bake
  12. Hamburger patty cooked with mushrooms and onions, served with tator tots and salad
  13. Stuffed eggplant and zucchini
  14. Chili
  15. Egyptian Beans (ful)-- we usually eat this for breakfast, but it's good any time of the day
  16. Shepherd's pie
  17. Southwest Chicken and Rice Bake
  18. Tilapia with mixed veggies and rice
  19. Salmon with herbed butter, roasted potatoes, and vegetables
  20. Shrimp pilaf 
  21. Salad bar with an assortment of veggies, meats, and gf toppings 
I'll post soon with recipes for some of these dishes. What are your favorite gluten free dinners?  I'm sharing this article on Gluten-Free Wednesdays, Allergy-Free Wednesdays, and Wheat-Free Wednesday.
