Many pasta options are out of the question if you're trying to pursue a gluten-free diet, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun. In addition to gluten-free pastas, vegetables and fruits can be sliced or "shaved" to mimic the traditional noodles. Check out these salad options for ideas:
Shaved asparagus with mushrooms and Parmesan crumble: Shaved asparagus spears are tossed with thinly sliced mushrooms and walnuts in a bright vinaigrette in this simple salad, topped with crumbled Parmesan crisps. A perfect dish whether you're planning for company or a simple meal with the family. You can find the recipe below.
Shaved fennel salad with smoked salmon: Shaved fennel is tossed with a light lemon dressing, the salad served alongside smoked salmon in this simple dish which comes together in only 15 minutes.
If you are sensitive to gluten, check all ingredients to make sure they are gluten-free before using. Many may contain trace gluten (such as spices, a number of which include flour as an anti-caking agent) and/or are produced in facilities that also process gluten-based products. Some ingredients, such as mushrooms (mushroom spores are grown on gluten grains), and certain cheeses may not be suitable for those particularly sensitive to trace gluten.
