One of my favorite food blogs has a list of gluten free recipes (http://www.101cookbooks.com/gluten_free_recipes/). 

And can I recommend potatoes? Regular or sweet.  Baked sweet potatoes with a bit of butter (& salt if it's unsalted butter) are lovely.  Baked potatoes topped with veggie chili and/or salsa or topped with steamed broccoli (and cheddar, since I'm a cheeseaholic).  Curried oven fries.  Potatoes au gratin (toss in some silk tofu for healthier/proteinier or even a cheeseless version). 

Oh, and beets.  If you like them, beets are delicious.  Pickled, of course, but also baked, either in chunks or like oven fries (recently discovered love of mine).  And as a plus, the beet greens are wonderful cooked up, too.

  My granddad has Celiacs and he was living with us for awhile.  I am also a vegetarian so it really was tricky to find a lot of options that would accommodate us both.  It is crazy some of the stuff that has gluten in it that you would never expect!  Be careful with some soups.  Some people and companies use flour to thicken the soup.  Also, some soy sauces and mayonnaise contain gluten.   

  Bob's Red Mill(http://www.bobsredmill.com/) have a lot of alternative flours that you can replace with regular flours when you bake.  When I bake my granddad cakes and cookies I use rice flour. They also have cake, cookie, breads, and brownie mixes that only require you to add some additional ingredients like milk and butter. 

  Whole Foods also carries gluten free food.  They have pizzas, cookies, and bread that you can get.  Sometimes they even have fresh goods in the bakery. 

  http://www.glutenfree.com/home.aspx?CategoryCode=42  Is a good source to buy almost everything!     

  Hopefully this helps!!  Good Luck with everything!!!

I'm not alone...

I'm in the same situation as you are. I add recipes to my blog semi-regularly (totally overdue to get some old stuff up there) but I've only just started it up so there's not much there at the moment.

Blog: http://misstwist.blogspot.com/

I assure you it does get much much easier. You can have dairy I take it? If so you're one food item up on me as I'm also allergic to dairy.

Coconut milk based curries using form tofu are to die for, brown rice is our friend nutrition wise (mixed wild rice is nice too), try to find a good cup for cup flour replacer it will save you so much time, pay attention to all the ingredients on everything (some corn flours have wheat flour in them for example) and don't panic!

The Gluten-Free Vegan by Susan O'Brian was a god send for me.

And http://accidentalvegetarian.blogspot.com/ is the blog that saved me. This woman is an inspiration and to sum the blog up in 3 words: GLUTEN FREE CROISSANTS...

What more do you need?

If you'd like I can send you over a PM with a list of the blogs and resources I use the most Smiley

I'm kind of just combining advice I've seen so far on this thread, but I'm assuming you can have sweet potatoes and coconut milk...if that's true, I'd love to share a recipe for something delicious with you:

I make a really really tasty sweet potato curry that's very simple.  Here's how I make it, but you can modify the recipe if you can't have something in it or if you just prefer different things:

Peel and cube 2 large-ish sweet potatoes (specific, I know) and chop up an onion.  Saute the onion with some garlic in olive (or whatever) oil.  Add whatever spices you like.  (I use turmeric, garam masala, and cumin seeds).  Let the spices cook a bit, and then add the potato cubes.  Stir until they're coated.  Add in a can of coconut milk (I use the light kind), and cover.  Stir frequently, but basically let the mix steam until the potatoes are cooked through.  I like to cook them for a little longer than it takes for them to get tender, so that the coconut milk mixes with the starch and gets really thick.  You can add finishing salt if you like, but usually I don't think it needs it. 

This is a really versatile recipe...you can use pumpkin instead of the sweet potatoes, or whatever you like!  I like to serve this with basmati rice and a green salad.  Oh, and sorry for not having exact amounts listed...I kind of just wing it whenever I cook  Cheesy
