gluten free- urgent careSun-Dried-Tomato And Pesto Risotto

Rice is always fair game. This brothy risotto gains a rich flavor from sweet sun-dried tomatoes and garlicky basil pesto. The bold flavors in this side dish taste great with grilled meat. Note: Be sure to check the nutrition label on the chicken broth — many brands contain hydrolyzed wheat gluten, a water-soluble wheat protein.

Brown Sugar-Glazed Beets

The sweet glaze on these steamed beets softens the root vegetable’s earthy flavor. Try this brightly hued dish alongside one of our delicious roast chicken recipes.

Ricotta Mashed Potatoes

When cooking for someone with a gluten allergy, potatoes can be a fantastic ally. This versatile tuber can be dressed down, and served baked with a pat of butter, or gussied up, as in this recipe, which features creamy, tangy ricotta cheese. Try these mashed potatoes with our gluten-free Black Rice Curried Meatloaf, made with rice instead of breadcrumbs.

Coconut Creamed Corn

Creamed corn goes tropical with coconut milk, fresh cilantro, and lime juice. The sweetness of the milk and fresh corn is tempered by the spicy kick of crushed red pepper. This side dish is a natural partner for our Garlic-Chile Flank Steak.

Roasted Carrots, Pearl Onions and Wild Mushrooms with Tarragon

Mastering simple cooking techniques, like high-heat roasting, opens up a world of mealtime options. As with the risotto recipe, check the nutrition label of the chicken broth carefully for hidden sources of gluten. These roasted vegetables pair well with dishes like garlic-and-herb stuffed Sage and Rosemary Pork.

Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

A sprinkle of Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil transform tomatoes into the perfect easy side dish. Baking the tomatoes condenses their natural sweetness — serve them with an easy 10-minute meal like our Turkey Milanese with Mâche Salad.

Gluten-Free Green Chile Cheese Bread

Developed by cookbook author Carol Fenster, this spicy Southwestern-style bread is made with a special blend of non-wheat flours that includes potato starch and sorghum and tapioca flours. This tender, cheesy bread complements most soups, stews, and salads.

Quinoa With Latin Flavors

Though quinoa flour may contain allergy-inducing gluten due to the possibility of cross contamination with other flours produced in the same factory, quinoa in its unadulterated grain form is good to go! This versatile side is enhanced with garlic, onion, cilantro, and lime and tastes wonderful with seafood dishes, such as our citrus-scentedSpice-Crusted Salmon.

Canadian Bacon, Potato, And Swiss Chard Gratin

The humble potato strikes again, this time layered with nutty Gruyère cheese and mild Canadian bacon. As with the other recipes, check the nutrition label of the chicken broth carefully for hidden sources of gluten. Because this dish is so rich and complex, we’d suggest a simple main course like Jacques Pépin’sGrilled Pork Paillards.

Zucchini And Pepper Ciambotta

Freshness reigns supreme in this easy tomato-based side dish. Feel free to vary the recipe according to the vegetables you have on hand. To call out the aromatic basil that permeates this stew, serve with our light, lemony Grilled Trout.
