With the Fourth of July just around, I thought I would mention some of my favorite summertime foods, all perfect for a gathering or backyard BBQ. And best of all, these are great tasting dishes. They may be gluten free, but everyone will enjoy them.
Entertaining gluten free does seem daunting, but it can be done. And it doesn’t have to be super expensive. I try to prepare dishes that are naturally gluten free, thus avoiding all the expensive flours and gums that are typically required for gluten free baking.
Think fresh, simple, and delicious. Make a great main dish, a side or two, and serve some really fresh fruits and vegetables and everyone will be well fed and happy to eat gluten free.
And most of the recipes I am suggesting are family friendly; and I think there is no better time than summer to get the kids in the kitchen helping prepare food. A couple of the recipes even include the word Easy in the title. Cooking great tasting gluten free food can be easy and fun.
Happy Fourth of July and happy gluten free cooking.
