When you think savoury, you probably think pizza, pasta, burgers, hot dogs... I get it! It ALL has wheat. Disheartening, right? Well, I'm here to show you that the gluten-free savoury world can be and is AMAZING. You will find delicious gluten-free pasta dishes, rich and juicy sandwiches, hearty soups, and even tortillas and flatbread! Read on!
When it comes to eating gluten-free one thing you have to keep in mind is cross-contamination. If you are slightly gluten-intolerant, you might get away with cross-contaminated foods while those with celiac will probably suffer even from tiny amounts of wheat on their plate. To avoid getting sick, make sure the foods you are buying are marked "gluten-free".
If it is marked as gluten-free then it has been gluten-free certified and is free of any cross contamination. For example, buckwheat flour is gluten-free but if it is processed in the same factory where they also process wheat, you might get some level of gluten contamination in a seemingly harmless product!
Here I put together a list of cornflour brands that are safe for celiacs. If you are vegan and chickpeas are your jam, make sure you know the difference between chickpea and graham flour. If you are a coconut fat, you might want to read a bit on coconut flour as it is very different from other gluten-free flours.
I love the original Italian Pasta alla Norma but as a flavor chaser, I decided to try and throw in some roasted mirepoix (carrots, onions, and celery mx). It turned out so good that I had to capture the details in a recipe post!
if you are in a hurry, you can make Bolognese within 30 minutes by using premade ingredients. However, if you desire to make an elaborate dish and bring out all the flavors of a traditonal Italian cuisine, you will LOVE this recipe that will jump you through all the hoops to get you to the rich and delicious dish you will enjoy.
Did you know that white and creamy carbonara is originally made without a droplet of cream?! And it is SO much better this way. The richness and creaminess of this iconic pasta recipe come through the egg yolks' richness and fat content.
One of my favorite dishes growing up was pierogi. I tried making it gluten-free by following recipes online and it was a failure time-after-time. So, I simply HAD TO come up with a recipe that will capture the Slavic culture in a gluten-free context!
This was one of my FAVORITE dishes growing up (mind you, I even spoke about it on a podcast episode). And surprisingly, there were NO good recipes for this dish in the gluten-free world. So, if you are looking for something unique and special, here you go!
P.S. Here is a good description of the difference between pelmeni and pierogi!
The reason for all the fuss around this world-famous dish is its flavor profile. In one plate you have the sour, sweet, and umami flavors combined in a colorful bowl!
This is one of my favorite winter soup recipes. The rich chicken broth is combined with roasted garlic and cream to boost your immune system during the cold season!
I am not vegan but I firmly believe this soup is TIMES better with coconut milk rather than the regular type. Sprinkle some coconut shreds for a crunch and even more coconut flavor!
This soup is not like any other traditional tomato soup. This recipe uses fresh tomatoes to enrich the flavor of the dish. You will see the world of different fresh vegetable make when used in place of canned food!
I always advocate for getting a whole chicken whenever possible (unless you REALLY need a whole bunch of chicken breasts). You can not only make a dinner for a large family by roasting a whole chicken, but you can use the carcass to make a delicious chicken bone broth and use it in a plethora of recipes!
This dish is gluten-free and oh, so delicious!

You will be surprised how rich and sufficient these pizzas are on their own!
Again, if you are not a gluten-free sourdough nerd, why aren't you?! Okay, okay, I know you barely find time to feed your cat, and here I go talking about feeding a colony of homegrown bacteria. But hey, if you are curious though, you should this pizza crust recipe a try! You will be pleasantly surprised by the results!
This is one of the simplest salads and is great with a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar or olive oil!
