BBQ Recipes We Love
If you follow a whole foods gluten free diet like me you know it can be hard to get all the nutrients you need, especially at a gluten-free BBQ. Although these may not be some of the traditional BBQ favorites, these are some of my light, fresh, and fast recipes from my summer grill to yours. Try them out and let me know what you think in the comment thread!
Homemade Gluten-Free Italian Marinade for Chicken:
-1 1/2 cups oil of your choosing
-1/4 cup red wine vinegar (check the label to ensure the vinegar is not malted & is wheat free)
-1 Tbsp. Italian Seasonings by American Spice
-1 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
-1 tsp. gluten free garlic powder
-1/4 tsp. fresh ground peppercorns
-Hot pepper flakes to taste (exclude if you do not like the extra heat)
Process all of the above ingredients in a food processor or blender. Place your chicken breasts in a clean baking dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken and allow them to marinate for at least 20 minutes before grilling. Once the chicken is cooked assemble your gluten free sandwich with Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Hamburger Buns for a heart-healthy meal.
Summer Sausages, Gluten Free!
Grill and brown sausages to your liking and the juices run clear. Chop all of your veggies into half-moon slivers. Place the sausage into our new Udi’s hot-dog buns and top with the chopped veggies. These sausages are packed full of flavor and don’t require any additional marinades, but if you have a preferred marinade feel free to add that too!
I don’t know about you, but I cannot go to a summer BBQ and not have my dessert too. Something that most people do not realize is that most homemade peanut butter cookies are actually gluten free! My dad gave me his recipe, but this recipe from Shauna Ahern, better known as “Gluten Free Girl” is almost exactly the same and it makes 10-12 cookies, perfect for your smaller, more intimate grill sessions! You can find her recipe here at GlutenFreeGirl.com
