These lunches are quick to make and promise to be totally delicious.
In her book “Finn’s World,” surfer, baker and cook Finn Ní Fhaoláin has written dozens of completely gluten-free (sometimes even vegan!) and ultra tasty recipes that can be made quickly and on a budget. No one said being healthy had to be boring, and these three lunch or dinner recipes prove just the opposite.
This salad has a lot of ingredients, but the flavours make it fresh and delicious, in addition to being gluten-free. It works wonderfully as a summer lunch and can also be prepared ahead of time to quickly take to work or college. Finn’s recipe serves 2-3 and is listed here as follows:
1 cup (185g) uncooked quinoa
2 cups (470ml) GF vegetable stock
1 fresh or 2 dried bay leaves
½ red onion
1 tbsp lemon juice (add more or less based on taste preference!)
2 bell peppers, sliced
1 cup (170g) green seedless grapes
300g cooked tikka masala chicken (make sure the seasoning is GF)
½ cup (25g) fresh coriander leaves, chopped
3 tbsp craisins (dried cranberries)
4 tbsp toasted seeds
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
4 ultra tasty gluten free recipes to satisfy your cravings
Because Mexican food is based around corn, veg, beans, rice and meat, it makes a perfect gluten-free diet with powerful protein and plenty of healthy alternatives. After living in America with her friends for a summer, Finn fell in love with a Mexican market and these subsequent chicken wraps. Her recipe is listed as follows:
1 big free-range chicken breast (happy chickens taste better and are better for you)
Olive oil, for roasting
Salt and pepper
1 red bell pepper
½ ball low-fat mozzarella
1-2 GF tortilla wraps (the bigger the better)
Handful baby leaf spinach
For the Dressing
¼ cup (60ml) olive oil
¼ cup (60ml) balsamic vinegar
2 cloves raw garlic or 3 roasted
Finn recommends portioning the dressing into containers and pouring it over the wrap as you eat, to prevent it from getting soggy. She also notes that leaving out the mozzarella will make this dish dairy free, as the avocado will be perfectly creamy on its own!
