Do you find that too many healthy gluten free meals contain large numbers of ingredients? I’ve found this is a common problem and to make it even worse many of these recipes have ingredients that are hard to find or that you don’t use that often.

So here are some of my favorite simple healthy gluten free meals that don’t require more than five ingredients.

I’ve found that by creating your meals around a base of a few main ingredients, there are endless combinations you can create. It also helps to learn how to use spices when cooking.

Here are my favorite ingredients to keep on hand for creating endless tasty simple healthy gluten free meals:

Quinoa

Brown rice pasta

A selection of green veggies including broccoli, spinach, beet greens, asparagus, Brussel sprouts, zucchini, green beans etc.

Chicken

Turkey Burgers

Carrots

Celery

Onion (both yellow and red)

Frozen Fish- I usually keep some salmon and talapia but other kinds can work too

Canned tuna

Eggs

Mushrooms

Berries

Red potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

Olive Oil

Red and green peppers

The very best 5 ingredient simple healthy gluten free meals are some kind of vegetable stir fry with the option to add in chicken, turkey, or fish. You can also add in potatoes or brown rice pasta.

There are also a lot of crockpot soups that usually have about 5 ingredients.

There are also lots of ways to make quinoa salads. I like to use quinoa with olive oil and either tuna or chicken and then add in some red onions and either red or green peppers and 1-3 green vegetables such as green peas, or green beans or broccoli, or spinach.

If you think in terms of vegetable plus protein plus carb and combine 3-5 different things then you can’t go wrong. Some combinations will taste better than others but you probably won’t find anything that doesn’t taste good.

What is your favorite simple healthy gluten free meal that has 5 ingredients or less?
