Holidays and seasonal food go hand in hand, and the 4th of July is no exception. Add the fact that this time of year boasts a ton of in-season fruits and vegetables, and you’ve got an event made in food heaven!
If you’re looking for festive and tasty gluten-free recipes to share with friends and family this weekend, look no further. We’ve got a deliciously diverse roundup for you right here:
Patriotic Salad with Quinoa and Berries, Yummy Mummy Kitchen
This salad was obviously created with the holiday in mind. Sweet summer berries, fresh salad greens and the most adorable star-shaped slices of watermelon beg to be displayed at your Independence Day BBQ.
Red, White and Blueberry Salad, Food52
Here’s another take on a festive quinoa salad: Add fresh, ripe blueberries and tangy blue cheese to red quinoa (our award-winning Ancient Harvest Inca Red Quinoa would be perfect here) and you’ve got a sweet and savory delight to serve a crowd.
Quinoa-Stuffed Tomatoes, Love & Flour
Celebrate America and tomato season at once with this flavor-packed recipe. These juicy stuffed tomatoes can be served as a side dish or a fantastic vegetarian main at your holiday get-together.
One of the most American foods of all time gets a new look with these cheesy, saucey buffalo bites. The cool and creamy Greek yogurt-based dipping sauce perfectly cuts the heat, making these the ultimate party time snack.
Patriotic Quinoa Pudding, Dr. Andrea Hoglen’s Natural Wellness Blog
Gluten-free and sugar-free with the option to be dairy-free, this sweet and pretty pudding makes a wonderful summer dessert. If you’ve never had quinoa made into a pudding, you’re missing out!
What’s a barbecue without a fresh-off-the-grill burger, right? This one fits an impressive amount of flavor into a single patty: It’s got bell peppers, cilantro and spices mixed into the base of black quinoa and ground chicken.
