Vegetarian Gluten-Free Dinner Ideas Here
0

15 posts in this topic

I was Vegan before finding out I was Celiac, I've given in on some dairy (not much) when need be to make my diet a little easier. I love to scope this forum for dinner ideas (you all have great ideas) but I have to alter most of them to make them work for me (kinda defeats the purpose of grabbing someone else's recipe to make life easier). So Im hoping there are more vegan/vegetarian GFers that frequent this page and that we could share our dinner ideas (crosses fingers) :)

I was vegan as well. I did wind up giving in on eggs being in things to open up my options a little for things like bread and crackers. So now I am an ovo-vegetarian who doesn't like eggs...since I don't like eating them by themselves or in egg-like states, and never have. Just don't care for the taste/texture. Dairy doesn't agree with my belly either, so none of that here. I'm still mostly vegan, and I do not purchase eggs to use in my own cooking or baking.

 

I like the Happy Herbivore cookbooks and website/meal plans. Lots of gluten-free recipes in the cookbooks, even a gluten-free flour blend, and the meal plans are always gluten-free or with a gluten-free option.

 

For dinner tonight, we had mac & Teese, which is a cheddar sauce I bought at Whole Foods...comes in a tube and is with the other vegan cheeses. I just cooked 8 oz of Tinkyada elbows and then stirred in the cheddar sauce until it all melted. We had that with a side of steamed broccoli, and I had a Bob's Red Mill brownie for dessert (made with applesauce subbed for eggs).

Thanks for sharing :) I have on occasion given in to eggs in breads and things but don't buy them. When I bake I use EnerG egg replacer, it works amazingly! I am pretty much vegan but if I'm asked about my diet I usually say gluten-free veggie because I will give in if I have too, the dairy side effects are way more tolerable than being glutened!

For dinner I had fresh salad with olive oil and cilantro with fresh hummus and cucumber chips :) ill wake up around midnight starving! I was going to have brownies as well but was drained today and never got around to baking them :(

For me the dairy side effects are pretty bad too, actually more painful, while being glutened is very itchy and then annoying from a bathroom standpoint for a few days, makes me tired/grouchy, etc. So I usually wind up telling restaurants gluten free vegan so they don't try to serve me a frittata or something. LOL But I don't eat out much anymore and mostly have a short list of safe places that haven't glutened me so far. One is a pizza place that I really like that also has vegan cheese, but I'm not sure the employees are too thrilled to have to get out a fresh sauce container or fresh toppings for me.

 

I'll try to remember to come in here and post on a regular basis what we do for dinner, so people can get ideas. I think tomorrow I am going to do a tofu chili in the Crock Pot. I'm increasing my strength training and trying to increase my protein intake, which is proving to be pretty difficult without consuming a lot of fat along with it (i.e. nuts).

 

I made those brownies a couple of months ago and cut them up, wrapped them individually in plastic wrap, and froze them in a larger freezer bag. Works great for portion control.

I have to go out of town to find a restaurant I can safely eat at, so I do t eat out much either. I love mellow mushroom though I've never had a problem there, although I was super worried about it, being a pizza place and CC issues. I would like more crock pot recipes and I need more protein myself, I don't have a big problem with soy but when I make my tofu and potato tacos ( one meal I can successfully get my boys to eat) I do get a little gassy. I do appreciate any ideas, I love to come up with new recipes but sometimes I just don't wanna think about it ya know?

Mmm baked potato sounds yummy! I had coconut yogurt called so delicious (dairy, soy, and gluten free) with granola nuts and berries for breakfast yummo!

Mellow Mushroom does a GREAT job -- their gluten-free menu even outlines their procedure to prevent CC at the bottom. They wash up, change aprons, use separate toppings, and separate utensils, along with a screen that keeps the pizza from contacting the stone in the oven.

 

The tofu chili is a Whole Foods Market recipe...I'm just going to throw it in the Crock Pot instead of making it on the stove. :)

Yes mellow mushroom is my favo restaurant hands down! I love the staff, they never make me feel alien for my diet needs. Asheville is where I have to go to get good safe food and a lot restaurants there have gluten-free menus I am thankful to have somewhere to go even if I have to drive 45mins to get there.

Last night I made potato tacos (always a winner with the kids). Was a loooong day yesterday. Didn't get home till around 8p (oldest son had baseball his team won YAY!) So I didn't want to spend hours in the kitchen when I had baths to get through. This meal doesn't have me standing over the stove the whole time either so I can swap laundry around feed the bunny (Honey Bunnies (: <3 him! ) you know the usual nightly scramble. Its super easy and like I said the kids looove em! I chop potatoes super small brown them in the skillet in coconut or olive oil, add taco seasoning bam! Taco filling! :) I heat some hard corn taco shells in the oven and fill them with the yumminess, they boys put Mozzarella cheese on theirs I put cilantro, hummus, avacodo whatever I have and sounds good at the time, sometimes I make rice as a side but always have lots left over (the boys don't care for rice much). That was my yummy dinner, I had waaay to much of :)

I am gluten free and me and dh are both veggie. We eat a mostly vegan diet, with a little dairy thrown in from time to time. I occasionally eat eggs (ie. only in souffle!). I have a few go-to dinners that always go down well:

  • red lentil dhal with brown rice
  • 'gardeners' pie (a shepheards pie with mushrooms and lentils in place of the meat)
  • hm gluten-free pizza (with or without cheese, depending on how healthy we're being)
  • vegetable curries
  • mixed bean chilli with brown rice
  • spag bol with boiled whole buckwheat and mushrooms in place of meat
  • Vegetable stir fry with rice noodles (this is ridiculously quick since rice vermicelli are almost instantly cooked when added to boiling water)
  • Risottos (using pretty much whatever veg I have in the house)

That's all I can think of for now but there is more! Let me know if you want info or recipes or anything. Hopefully it will get some ideas going :)

Oh those are great! Thanks for sharing! I too frequent the veggie stir fry w/rice or noodles!

Last night I made spring rolls stuffed with carrot, kale, lettuce, and bean spirits sooo good! If I do t have time I love to just throw some kale and apples in some olive oil with a shot of apple cider vinegar!

Made this the other night and it was delish...

 

"Meatball" Subs, serves 2

 

2 Schar sub rolls, baked and cut but not quite all the way through...like a hot dog bun

Franklin Farms Veggieballs

Trader Joe's Tomato Basil Spaghetti Sauce

Daiya mozzarella

 

Cook the veggieballs in the sauce (I did it in the microwave), then spoon some sauce into the split on each  bun. Place 3 veggieballs in each bun and cover with more sauce, then top with Daiya. Bake until cheese is melted and bread starts to toast a little on the edges.

 

I wound up with 3 leftover meatballs and sauce...you could use it to make spaghetti and meatballs for one. :)

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
