I’ve been eating gluten free for over 10 years (not by choice). I know how annoying it is to have me over, even for wine/appys because gluten is hidden in many, many foods. But feeding me, and your other gluten free friends, is actually pretty easy. Here are my favourite simple GF appetizers that you can find in any grocery store.*
Gluten Free Crackers and Cheese
There are many GF crackers- rice crackers, Mary’s crackers and Breton GF are my favourite. All cheese is safe (except Blue cheese- something about the mould being grown on bread).
Veggies and Hummus
All veggies are GF- so a big ole plate of carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, etc to dip in hummus (which is chickpea based) is perfect!
Nachos and Salsa
Nacho chips are made from corn- which is gluten free. I’d still check for a GF label to be sure there are no traces (for those bothered by trace amounts). Same with Salsa.
*If you’re not sure if something has gluten in it, ask your friend- I am personally never offended if someone checks in with me and would much rather that than get sick later.
