UPDATED 6/29/23

On a restricted diet due to illness or allergies? Know friends or family that are? No worries.

Amazing, delicious, mouthwatering, delectable, inviting, tasty,.. Well, you get the idea! Gluten free appetizers and gluten free dipping sauces to put a smile on everyone's faces. All recipes are gluten, nuts, soy, corn and egg free but never, ever, not once, compromising in taste.

Disclaimer - One recipe does contain soy - Sweet And Sour Vegan Balls (Can be made Vegetarian)

Gluten Free Stuffed Mashed Potato Pie

Cut into individual small triangular pieces and place on a decorative tray.

Gluten Free Cream Cheese Garlic Bites

Serve warm. They won't be able to resist the crunchy outside and gooey, creamy inside.

Gluten Free Stuffed Zucchini

This vegetarian/vegan dish is quick, inexpensive and absolutely delicious. Cut zucchini into threes for individual pieces. Add a decorative toothpick and you are set.

Gluten Free Quinoa Tacos

You don't have to feel left out if you have a restricted diet. You too can join in the fun with these delicious, messy, gluten free quinoa tacos. Messy foods are scrumptious foods, the messier the better.

If you aren't using store bought pita or tortilla, then make your homemade gluten free no yeast pita bread or gluten free soft flour tortillas for tacos or gluten free chickpea pancakes - Vegan. I just leave out the vegetables on the chickpea pancakes and make them thinner by adding more water and they are a perfect wrap or soft taco.

Put out bowls of ingredients and toppings to go on the tacos and everyone will be thrilled.

Gluten Free No Yeast Focaccia

Make two with different toppings. Using a pizza cutter, slice into individual squares.

Gluten Free Crispy Muffin Tin Pizza

If you love pizza, you will love these gluten free crispy muffin tin pizzas. Kids will find them especially fun! There's nothing better than biting into a crunchy, flavorful dough then into the soft center filled with gooey cheese and savory sauce. Serve with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.

Gluten Free Zucchini Tater Tots

These gluten free zucchini tater tots are crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. A perfect combination of textures.

Gluten Free Balsamic Breaded Cauliflower

An easy yet delicious way to make cauliflower. Crunchy, tasty and full of flavor.

Air Fryer Gluten Free Eggplant Balls

Air fried gluten free eggplant balls are a delicious appetizer or main course. Roll them small or big depending on your needs. Can also cook in the oven on high heat - about 450 degrees - if you don't have an air fryer or are making a large batch.

Another Gluten Free Falafel

Another gluten free falafel recipe just as delicious as the previous one. This recipe is quicker and with less steps.

Sweet And Sour Vegan Balls (Can be made Vegetarian)

Disclaimer: I made this for family members. I can't eat this as it has soy in it and I'm allergic to soy.

You can make them in advance like I did. When they sit in the sauce, they marinate and it's delicious. Cover with tin foil and refrigerate. Bake when you are ready to serve or bake and serve immediately.

Gluten Free Pierogis

My version of gluten free pierogis. They came out delicious. A light, buttery dough and delightful soft, creamy potato and onion filling.

Gluten Free Vegetarian Empanadas

These gluten free vegetarian empanadas are slightly crispy on the outside and full of flavor on the inside. I served with a fun dipping sauce. My husband loved the filling and the empanadas and has already asked me to make more!

Gluten Free Air Fryer Vegan Potato Cakes

CORRECTION:I just realized now that I've made a mistake and this is not vegan though it is vegetarian. It contains yogurt. It can, however, be vegan if the yogurt is substituted with a vegan product of your choice. My apologies.

These delicious gluten free air fryer potato cakes are prefect as an appetizer or a side dish.

Gluten Free Vegetarian Biscuit Sandwiches

A delicious appetizer or as a main course with a side salad.

Gluten Free Air Fryer Potato Croquettes

An excellent appetizer for a party, holiday or celebration. Can also be made as a side dish.

Mom's English Muffin Pizza - Easily Converted Gluten Free/Vegetarian

Speaking of family traditions, mom and dad made an all time favorite from when I was growing up. Back then, I was able to eat gluten, English muffin pizza was a fun treat for dinner. I didn't develop my allergies until about 10 years ago.

My parents used to own a pizzeria years ago. They still work well together to turn out a fun and delicious meal. They did not make it gluten free or vegetarian, but it can easily be converted. For gluten free options, click green link.
