Gluten-Free Picadillo

Picadillo, a Cuban-style medley of ground beef, spices, raisins and olives, has a unique sweet-and-tangy flavor that’s surprisingly addictive. Serve it with fried potatoes or white rice for a complete gluten-free meal. You can also use it as a taco filling with warm corn tortillas. For variation, substitute ground pork or ground turkey for the beef.

Gluten-Free Italian Sausages with Grapes & Greens

Kids get a kick out of eating grapes for dinner, so why not pair grapes with sausage and kale for a complete gluten-free meal? This recipe calls for one sausage per person but if you have bigger eaters, cook as many as you need. You can substitute escarole, collard greens, broccoli rabe or more tender greens like spinach or Swiss chard for the kale. A bowl of soft polenta makes a nice side with this dish.

Gluten-Free One-Pot Greek Shrimp & Orzo

Orzo, tiny pasta shaped like rice, is usually made with wheat, but corn- and rice-based orzo is making its way into supermarkets. DeLallo brand works well in this recipe; if gluten-free orzo is not available, substitute small gluten-free pasta, such as elbow macaroni. Cooking the orzo directly in the broth adds flavor. Just keep an eye on it to be sure there’s enough liquid. Taste it at the 11-minute mark and stir in some extra water if it’s not quite tender. Cast iron can react with acidic ingredients like tomatoes but it’s more likely to happen in a long-simmered sauce. If you happen to have an enameled cast-iron Dutch oven, this is a great time to use it. For those allergic to seafood, chicken can be substituted for the shrimp. Those avoiding dairy can omit the feta; the dish will be less creamy.

Gluten-Free Gingery Pork Pot Stickers

Many types of Asian dumpling wrappers are actually based on naturally gluten-free flours, such as rice or tapioca, but the beloved pot sticker remains a wheat dough through and through. Creating a great alternative took some tinkering, but I think you will be very pleased with the results. The recipe calls for “just boiled” water. After you turn off the heat, let the water cool for about 30 seconds to let the bubbles recede before measuring. It makes the process much safe. I like pot stickers best hot out of the pan, but you can freeze some before cooling if you don’t plan to finish them all in one meal. They cook well right from the freezer.

Cast Iron Chef

From quick Skillet Chicken Paella to a traditional Pan-Seared Steak to a one-pot extravaganza of Greek Shrimp and Orzo, these recipes showcase the range of delicious gluten-free meals you can create with a cast iron pan. So go ahead! Rescue your pan from that pile of camping gear and put it to good use. It deserves a permanent place in your kitchen.

Gluten-Free Steak Kebabs with Muhammara

Grilled steak kebabs are a summer favorite, especially when paired with a bold dipping sauce. Here, roasted red peppers pureed with walnuts, cumin, red pepper flakes and pomegranate molasses form a Middle Eastern dip called muhammara. Pomegranate molasses, which is pomegranate juice that’s been reduced down to syrup, provides an alluring tart-and-sweet brightness to this gluten-free dish. If you don’t have pomegranate molasses, substitute an equal amount of thick, aged balsamic vinegar and a tablespoon of lemon juice. If you find yourself with a bumper crop of bell peppers, roast your own on the grill. Otherwise, jarred roasted peppers are a timesaver. Note: This recipe contains walnuts. If you're allergic to walnuts, please choose another sauce in this article to enjoy with these steak kebabs.

Gluten-Free Grilled Chicken with Charred Corn Salsa

Grilling boneless, skinless chicken breasts is easy if you keep a few pointers in mind. Try to get each breast roughly the same size. A breast that’s thick on one side and thin on the other will inevitably be dry in parts and potentially undercooked in others. Use a meat pounder to pound the breasts to an even ¾-inch thickness. The chicken will grill quickly over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side. Don’t forget to let the chicken rest for a few minutes to redistribute the juices.

Gluten-Free Chicken Thighs with Chipotle-Raspberry BBQ Sauce

Fresh raspberries and smoky chipotle chile powder are a match made in heaven, especially when paired with chicken. Look for ground chipotle chile in the spice aisle. After straining the sauce, divide it between 2 bowls and use half for glazing the chicken as it grills and the rest as a dipping sauce. Since the sauce contains sugar, brush it on near the end of cooking so that it glazes the chicken without burning.

Gluten-Free Grilled Salmon with Balsamic Cherry Tomatoes

Cherry tomatoes offer little bursts of flavor in a salad so why not give them a leading role? In this recipe, the tomatoes are grilled for just a few minutes until their skins start to pop. The warm tomatoes soak in the balsamic vinegar, making them a bright, tangy topper for your salmon. A grill basket makes easy work of grilling tomatoes, keeping them from slipping through the grates. If you don’t have a basket, thread the tomatoes onto bamboo skewers. If you don’t eat salmon, this gluten-free recipe is delicious with grilled chicken, flank steak, pork and tuna.

Gluten-Free Pork Tenderloin with Grilled Peaches

Grilled peaches are a delicious, savory accompaniment to grilled pork. Choose peaches that are ripe but still firm so they hold their shape once they’re cooked. If you eat dairy, a little goat cheese or feta crumbled over the peaches makes a lovely finish.
