The Gorgeously Great Guide to Gluten-Free Vegan Eating in 60 Recipes


“Gluten-free” may have skyrocketed into a trend, but many people have no choice but to avoid this protein for some serious health reasons. Celiac disease, which necessitates strict avoidance of gluten, afflicts about one in 141 people in the United States. Plus, non-celiac gluten sensitivity is also increasing in prevalence. Overall, anyone avoiding gluten for medical, health, or any other reason needs to avoid:

  • Wheat and all wheat derivatives (including, but not limited to, bulgur, spelt, farro, einkorn, emmer, durum, kamut, semolina, triticale, wheat bran, and wheat germ);
  • Barley;
  • Rye;
  • Oats that are not labeled “gluten-free” (due to cross-contamination, not an inherent gluten protein within the oat grain)

Fortunately, there are plenty of gluten-free options available. Whole grains that can be used safely include amaranth, buckwheat, corn, Job’s Tears, millet, fontina, gluten-free oats, quinoa, rice, sorghum, teff, and wild rice. For more information on gluten and gluten-free eating with 200+ recipes, check out The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Gluten-Free Vegan Cooking.
