15 vegan gluten-free recipes are waiting for you in this blog post! All of them are easy to make and will take you maximum 60 minutes of your time (cooking included).
You’ll even find some ideas for starters and desserts!
Let’s go through them!
Part 1 : Starters
1. Easy homemade hummus
If you’re still buying hummus from the grocery store, I highly recommend doing it yourself with this recipe. Not only does it taste waaaay better with fresh ingredients, but it’s also so easy and quick to make!
Hummus is delicious with raw vegetables (cucumber, carrots, broccoli) or on top of gluten-free crispbread.
Bonus tip: keep the chickpea water to make a delicious vegan chocolate mousse for dessert!
Like hummus, guacamole is much better when homemade. It brings freshness and a Mexican touch to your food with a few ingredients only.
You can serve it with corn tortilla chips or corn thins.
This tomato and coconut milk soup is the ultimate comforting food and you know what? It’s super healthy – yay!!
The soup is presented with bread but you can obviously choose gluten-free bread for yourself.
Part 2 : Mains
Chili sin carne is the plant-based alternative to chili con carne. Despite the recipe being vegan and gluten-free, it’s still very rich in fibers and proteins due to the variety of beans.
This recipe is in my opinion best with gluten-free tortillas, salad, plant-based yogurt, and guacamole.
Mashed cauliflower is more like a side dish… but I would lie if I told you I never ate it as a main lol.
This recipe is a good alternative to roasted or boil cauliflower – I highly recommend trying it out whether you’re a cauli-lover or not sure how to prepare the vegetable.
This is my favorite curry recipe EVER. Made with butternut squash, sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and coconut milk, this recipe is definitely a comfort food but also a healthy option for fall/winter meals.
To serve with “cauliflower rice” or quinoa.
Quinoa is such a nice gluten-free alternative to rice and a perfect ingredient for salads. This recipe is made with black beans, corn, tomatoes, and pickles – fresh and tasty for summer.
Bonus tip: feel free to cook a little bit more and keep the leftovers for the next day.
Staying in the legume salads, here’s a lentil salad with sweet potato, radish, and avocado.
Lentils make this recipe such a nutritious meal since they are super rich in fibers, proteins, iron, and antioxidants.
A vegan pesto with no cheese and no oil? Yes – it’s possible! This avocado pesto is on the healthier side and still delish!
Perfect with gluten-free pasta.
Another lentil recipe, this time in the form of dahl with coconut milk, red peppers, tomatoes, and spices. This is the kind of meal that will take you to another continent without it requiring any cooking skills. All you have to do is put all the ingredients in a pan and wait for them to be cooked!
Aren’t sweet potatoes delicious in any way and form?
This one is perfect if you want to remix the traditional mashed potatoes recipe. Coconut milk is used in replacement to butter and oil which makes this side dish pretty healthy yet creamy.
If you’re a roasted veggies lover, you need to try this wintery salad with squash, sweet potato, almonds, and chickpeas. So many flavors and textures!
Part 3 : Desserts
Everyone seems to love apple crumble, so I had to make a healthy version of it!
This recipe includes gluten-free oats and almond meal. Butter is replaced with coconut oil and sugar with maple syrup which makes it a healthier yet tasty option.
Chia pudding is often considered as a breakfast… but why couldn’t it be a dessert too?
Made with coconut or almond milk, chia pudding is so versatile – you can add matcha, cocoa powder, or vanilla to mix things up. Plus, this is made in like 2 minutes – all you have to do is put the ingredients in a glass and wait for 2-3 hours!
To finish off, the famous chocolate mousse which is made out of chickpea water! I mean – this is genius. This technique makes the mousse very simple and much more light than traditional chocolate mousse.
