Gluten-free foods do not have to be boring, bland or uncreative. On the contrary, a variety of gluten-free recipes combine healthy whole grains with colorful flavors for a wide range of delicious, satisfying dishes. Many of these gluten-free grains also contain higher protein levels than their glutinous counterparts (wheat, barley and rye). The recipes below, from Eating Well magazine, use a variety of whole grains that are free of gluten, including polenta (made from corn), rice, quinoa and millet. Hearty and warming for the coming winter season, even people with gluten intolerances will enjoy these delicious dinner ideas.
Warm Quinoa Salad with Edamame and Tarragon
