What Can a Gluten Free Vegan Eat?
When it comes to breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts, the vegan AND gluten free possibilities are endless. 100% of the recipes on this website are vegan and 99% of them are gluten-free, so have a browse and find some new ones to try!
Nowadays, there’s a substitute for pretty much any non vegan gluten-free food.
(I created a list of the best homemade vegan kitchen staple substitutes here and of course, there are countless options you can find in stores.)
Is Most Vegan Food Gluten Free?
The short answer to this question and the question “are vegan products gluten free?” is sometimes.
Just because something is vegan does not make it automatically gluten-free. This is where your label reading skills will come in.
Of course, fruits and vegetables are always vegan and gluten free, but when it comes to packaged foods, there are plenty you can buy that are both vegan and gluten free.
However, it can be a little confusing because some of the things you think wouldn’t contain wheat actually does contain it.
For instance, soy sauce is vegan, but it contains wheat. But the good news is that there’s a vegan gluten free soy sauce alternative and that is tamari. Like this example, there are alternatives to everything (not everything, but A LOT!)
So store bought items aside, there are LOTS of easy vegan gluten free dinner recipes you can make at home.
