Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes
A lot of people try a vegan diet in January or early in the year. Some call it “Veganuary”!
Going vegan means that you avoid all animal foods, plus eggs, dairy, and even honey. Learn more about the differences between clean eating, vegan, paleo, keto, and Whole30 or the differences between vegan and vegetarian diets.
While most people can stick with a plant-based diet for a few days or weeks, some stick with it for years. You might think that eating just plants can get boring, but it’s more about how it makes you feel.

What If I Don’t Know How to Cook?
One of the hardest parts about going vegan is that you’ll likely need to start preparing more meals at home. This ensures that you have control over the ingredients. This is especially true when you are on a gluten-free diet, since many foods can be made or prepared in a facility that contains gluten.
If you are brand new to cooking, then try to focus on using recipes with simple ingredients. You don’t want to have to hunt all around for fancy ingredients when you are new to cooking.
Instead, keep it simple with fresh vegetables, and foods like beans, grains, nuts, and seeds. To make your recipes gluten free, you’ll also need to use ingredients like coconut aminos instead of soy sauce and gluten-free bread and gluten-free flours.
Believe it or not, but you can make a plant-based main course meal with sweet potatoes, black beans, corn tortillas, and brussels sprouts. Or, try making a vegan taco salad, lentil soup, or portobello fajitas. Or, try any of the gluten-free dinner recipes below which are appropriate for people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
