Green bean casserole is a favorite recipe for the holidays, and is actually pretty easy to make gluten free! Make this classic for a fun side dish to any meal.
Pro Tip: Most grocery stores sell gluten free french fried onions alongside the regular french fried onions during the month of November. Buy a few extra cans to keep on hand for the remainder of the year!
Fresh or Leftover Chicken
I feel like a gluten-free chicken casserole is the ultimate classic comfort food. My mom often made a wild rice chicken casserole when I was growing up and my whole family now enjoys it just as much as I did. Casseroles are a great way to use up leftover chicken!
Pro Tip: Costco rotisserie chicken is gluten free!
Adding black beans to gluten-free recipes is a great way to boost your intake of iron, fiber, and b vitamins. For those on a gf diet, especially if you have celiac disease, consuming more of these nutrients is essential because you’re eating less fortified foods.
Whether you’re making a tuna noodle casserole or baked ziti, there are lots of gluten-free pasta alternatives you can easily sub for regular pasta.
Pro Tip: choose a high quality gluten free pasta that won’t turn to mush. My favs are Jovial, which I buy onThrive Market because they carry all the varieties including egg noodles (!) and Tinkyada.
Cream of Mushroom Soup
This is a typical ingredient in many casseroles, and obviously when you’re making gluten free casserole recipes you’ll need to use a gluten-free cream of mushroom soup.
I often use the Pacific brand and you can find it in most grocery stores with the other canned soups.
Pro Tip: If you need a dairy free option, I like Vivian’s Live Again. Vivian’s also makes a gluten free cream of chicken soup mix which makes the creamiest, most delicious gluten free gravyever.
