The Ultimate List Of Gluten-Free Easter Recipes

GLUTEN-FREE CHARCUTERIE BOARD

A Charcuterie board is a perfect addition to any special meal. They bring people together. There is something about sharing a platter of food with friends and loved ones, that’s special and brings people and conversations together. You can load the board up with some of your favourite gluten-free items. Read how to create a Charcuterie board with gluten-free options.

THE BEST GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA DOUGH

Gluten-free pizza has a terrible reputation, with good reason. Regardless if you order gluten-free pizza from a restaurant, or buy a frozen pizza, or buy a pre-made crust, they tend to be thin, hard, cracker-like, and sometimes full of seeds. Cardboard is a common descriptive word. I’m Italian and I was raised on deliciously soft, yet slightly crunchy pizza crust and I was not willing to give it up because of my gluten-free diet. So my quest for the perfect gluten-free pizza dough began and, I can happily tell you, it was a success.

GLUTEN-FREE SAVOURY RICOTTA PIE RECIPE

This gluten-free savoury ricotta pie is a staple in my Italian-Canadian household for Easter, and other celebrations. Traditionally this is served with breakfast, lunch, or brunch, and it is always a crowd-pleaser. However, it can be an exciting addition to appetizers. It is like a flavourful ravioli and cheesecake merged to make something new and wonderful. A crowd-pleaser that everyone will enjoy.

THE BEST GLUTEN-FREE BATTERED CAULIFLOWER RECIPE

THE ULTIMATE TRADITIONAL GLUTEN-FREE RICE PUDDING RECIPE

This can be served as dessert, or as a brunch item. You can have a large bowl and allow people to scoop out their pudding or you could have it already portioned out in individual bowls or cups (a great idea for a large crowd or a buffet.) By portioning the pudding out, you cut down on mess. Serve alongside either a bowl of whipped cream, or a tin of whipped cream with a selection of berries, for that wow factor!
