A Few Gluten-Free Easter Recipes

Don’t let a holiday like Easter scare you just because you’re gluten free. There is plenty of delicious gluten-free food to enjoy. Here are a few gluten-free recipes that will help make this Easter a tasty one.

As for Easter dinner itself, it’s pretty easy to make that gluten free. Remember to read labels, and especially beware of ham glaze which often contains gluten.

Gluten-Free Easter Recipes (Green Beans Almandine) | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

For side dishes, avoid casseroles that use cream of chicken (or mushroom or celery) soup. You can make your own cream soup, but I prefer skipping the casserole and making something like these green beans almandine.

Instead of scalloped potatoes, try my mom’s gold potato casserole (if you eat dairy) or roasted red potatoes. If you want a low carb dish, go for mashed cauliflower.
