I think the gluten part is the trickiest, so maybe go to a gluten free cookbook and eliminate any thing with the other foods in it?

Have you instead tried listing foods they can eat? What about shish kabob?

You could use peppers,mushrooms, beef,chicken, zucchini and yellow squash. Make an herb marinade- parsley, thyme, etc.

Quinoa is a a very tasty grain without gluten.

For dessert maybe you could do a coconut sorbet, or choclate covered strawberries.

Or you could make a panna cotta- which is delicious and refreshing with NO eggs.

Also, you could make a potato crust- either with grated potatoes, prebaked and then filled, or make a filling and top it with mashed potatoes.

You could also use corn.
Chicken and cornbread would be great. Or roast pork loin, with apricot jam and thyme and served with cornbread muffins, and vegetables.


Roast lamb with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies :).
Basically, any combination of meat, potatoes and vegetables should be fine, right?
It sounds boring, but you can "fancy it up" by using several different kinds of veggies, and doing scalloped potatoes or something like that.


Wow. I have no suggestions for you. Just a hearty "Good Luck!"

RICSI. Heh. Love it.


Hmm, I can see why you are feeling overwhelmed.

What about a polenta "lasagna"? You can get the polenta premade (herbed or plain). Just warm it up and then spread in layers. In between, put in layers of vegetables (I'm thinking thin slices of squash, zucchini and eggplant) and thin slices of mozzarella.

Serve a salad and a gluten-free dessert (perhaps Coconut Flour Brownies or Coconut Flour Pound Cake.


You can make cornbread with gluten-free flour and cornmeal, served hot with honey or toasted with honey and butter.

Baked eggplant is delicious, as are roasted vegetables.

I concur with the polenta idea.

Basil, olive oil and parmesean blended will be great on gluten-free pasta or as a topping for polenta.

I also recommed slow-cooking mixed beans with pork and a stock cube with an herb sachet plus bay leaf. You can throw in a slice of cooked bacon for more flavour and add a little cooked rice to thicken it. Salt after cooking.

Hope it works out!
