Q: What does it mean for a dish to be gluten-free?
A: A dish that is gluten-free means it doesn’t contain any wheat or grains that contain gluten (such as barley, rye, and some types of oats) which can trigger an immune reaction in people with celiac disease, gluten intolerance or sensitivity.
Q: Can these vegetarian entrees also be made vegan-friendly?
A: Yes! The recipes featured in “10 Mouthwatering Gluten-Free Vegetarian Entrees” don’t typically rely on dairy or eggs but instead use other plant-based ingredients like beans, lentils and tofu that are naturally high in protein and add texture and flavor to the meals. Most of them should be easy to modify by using vegan substitutes such as non-dairy milk, cheese alternative or egg substitute where needed.
Q: Are these dishes still filling even though they’re vegetarian and gluten-free?
A: Definitely! These entree recipes have been designed to pack plenty of nutrients into each serving while keeping calories low so you won’t feel hungry right after eating them. In fact, vegetables like sweet potatoes, mushrooms and paprika spice used in some of the recipes make them hearty enough without relying on meat products. Plus the added sources of vegetarian proteins help keep you full longer after your meal is over.
