A gluten-free weekly meal plan

This month’s meal plan is dedicated to the gluten-intolerant amongst us. As a society, Westerners are extraordinarily wheat-dependent, so even if you’re not coping with celiacs in your household, you still might want to incorporate a few of these meals into your repertoire. Besides which, they’re all super yummy (as always, click the photos or the links to go to the recipe)….

MONDAY

And we’re off! Starting with meat-free monday and this tomato & lentil soup. Obviously, don’t serve it with bread!

A monday detox to push through any weekend overindulgence.

TUESDAY

Slow cooker chicken satay is so yum and really easy. Just double check that your peanut butter is gluten free and use a naturally fermented soy sauce (they’ll be GF on the label). Thickening slow cooker meals with corn flour near the end is a nice GF alternative to adding wheat flour earlier in the process. And it works better (I think).

WEDNESDAY

Wrap these beef & lentil fajitas in gluten-free wraps and double check that your sauces are all ok. Rolling them up in foil makes them instantly more fun and kid friendly as the kids focus on munching and peeling rather than investigating the contents. Plus, the foil holds everything in place. SCORE.

THURSDAY

Make sure you have an extra cup of rice leftover from Tuesday night and you’re able to easily whip up this zucchini slice. I love a simple mix & bake later in the week once we’re all getting tired. To ensure the rice will still be safe, make sure you set aside a cup of it as soon as it was cooked on Tuesday. As soon as the steam clears, pop it into an airtight container and chuck it straight into the fridge. OR, you can always pop it into the freezer.

FRIDAY

These chickpea flour fritters are the perfect relaxed Friday night tea.

Great finger food for toddlers.

SATURDAY

A BBQ is a great idea and super tasty. This week has had a lot of vegetarian food, so you might want to pop some lamb or fish on the BBQ and serve it with this coleslaw….

Just chopping, no cooking. Love.

And for a treat? Well, it doesn’t matter what food intolerance you deal with – this coconut & mango tapioca dessert is gluten and dairy free. And if you like, you can swap out the caster sugar for coconut sugar.

Proof that dairy-free, gluten-free desserts are possible!
