In a world with COVID-19, life has certainly changed for us, and it probably has for you too. I will continue to post these menu plans in an effort to keep some normalcy for you and me.
Because my parents, who are in their upper 80’s and have underlying conditions, live with us, we are being very cautious. I have not been to a grocery store in over a week, and I don’t plan to go for some time. Thankfully, I have plenty of space in my basement where I have a pretty well-stocked pantry, and I have an extra freezer, which is full.
But our fresh food is running low, and meals will begin to look a little different. However, these menu plans will continue to look the same. I hope they inspire you, and if you have more time on your hands these days, maybe you’ll try a recipe that you wouldn’t have otherwise.
This week’s gluten-free meal plan includes easy and delicious weeknight dinner recipes like hummus crusted chicken, unstuffed cabbage, and chicken enchiladas.
Hummus Crusted Chicken – This requires only three ingredients and is cooked on the stove top for an easy but delicious main dish.
Unstuffed Cabbage – This recipe includes Instant Pot and stove top directions for a delicious meal. If desired, you can stir in cooked rice.
Chicken Enchiladas – I use leftover cooked chicken for this recipe. You could cook extra chicken when you make the hummus crusted chicken or pick up a gluten-free rotisserie chicken.
Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew – Ground beef and veggies are combined in this flavorful dish. For a one-dish meal, you could add potatoes to the pot or stir in cooked rice after the stew is done.
Salmon Quiche – This recipe uses canned salmon and is a great pantry meal for days when you are out of fresh meat. It uses coconut milk and is dairy free.
Zucchini Crust Pizza – This pizza is delicious and low carb. There’s also a vegan option.
Arugula Salad – You could use canned beets or fresh cooked beets in this arugula salad.
Bread Sticks – These bread sticks are dairy free and a nice treat to accompany dinner.
Applesauce Muffins – You can try using a gluten-free flour mix in this muffin recipe if you don’t have the individual flours. Use 1 3/4 cups in place of the flours and starch.
Breakfast Sausage – I love making my own sausage using organic ground pork.
Lemon Blueberry Trifle – This a delicious dessert that everyone always loves. If you don’t have ingredients for this, try making trifle with whatever you do have on hand. It can be a fun treat.
Date Balls – These treats are grain free and easy to make.
