One of the things I love most about writing a food blog is hearing from you guys, my lovely readers! Reading your comments, seeing your Instagram pics of a THM recipe you made or hearing that you successfully fooled you family into eating black bean brownies genuinely warms my heart. I have no idea how I got so lucky!

When people hear that I am gluten-free and only post gluten-free recipes I almost always get a comment on the lines of “I’m gluten-free too!” or “my daughter/nephew/cousin/dog-walker is gluten-free too!” Though I don’t exclusively eat gluten-free (anymore) we must.stick.together. But for real, it’s nice to know that I can help out gluten-free folks even in the tiniest way.

Gluten-Free Dinner in 30 Minutes – Or Less!

 I understand how tough it can be to go from the luxuries of living at home or being fed by campus dining to all of a sudden having to figure out how to feed yourself. Okay, that’s a lie. I’ve always had an obsession with the kitchen and subsequently I did not experience this type of panic, but I’ve witnessed many an Annie’s Mac and Cheese dinner to know this is a very real life experience.

I also suspect that some of you have found yourself hosting a dinner in which an invitee has given you a heads up that he or she eats gluten-free. Try not to freak out. It’s gonna be okay!

Instead of serving up lettuce to your guests for fear of glutening them, I thought I would round-up some of the best and QUICK (i.e. 30 minutes or less!) gluten-free dinners from across the internet. You may see some familiar faces and I may have shamelessly included some of my own recipes. Some are a one-pot shop but for those stand-alone recipes, feel free to mix and match sides. Regardless, they’re all delicious and make a perfect dinner whether you are feeding your struggling post-grad self or invited Gwyneth Paltrow and her gluten-free entourage for a feast.

    Hello Maven,
    I am a big fan of your gluten-free recipes. Tried some of them at my home and my husband loves them a lot though he is not a big loved of gluten-free foods.
    Anyways, I have a question. Yesterday I went to a grocery shop near to my house. And noticed a product labeled as Non-Gluten. Is there any difference between non gluten and gluten-free products?
