Does anyone have ideas/recipes for gluten free vegan meals that you make?

My husband has eczema on his hands and we are unsure of what the cause is. To try and figure it out, he has been eliminating possible trigger foods from his diet. He has eliminated wheat and gluten for the past couple months and his eczema has been improving, however it hasn't gone away completely.

We cook at home most nights and it is starting to feel like we are eating the same couple meals. I'm interested to see if any craftsters follow the same diet and what your favorite meals  are to make. Love to about hear about what your eating?

this is an amazing site with recipes--i made her enchiladas yesterday and they're great!
i'm not a vegan, but i have a wheat and an egg allergy, am lactose intolerant, (among other things) and i don't really cook meat too much, so i look for vegan recipies (i'm mostly into baking, which doesn't require meat!).
the cookbook Babycakes is also great. i make the banana bread into muffins, then freeze them until i need them.
good luck!

Thanks pearlshaynea! That site looks like it has just what I am looking for. Beautiful photography too. I haven't yet checked out babycake's cookbook. We are close to the one in nyc and have become big fans of their cookie sandwiches! Those are amazing! (I think I will check out the cook book to see if that is it it Cheesy
Thanks again!

I can't deal with the better than cream cheese. It has an odd taste to me, but I really like the Earth Balance butter. We even use it on popcorn. I think it tastes good and similar to butter.

Maybe some Spaghetti Squash for when you and your husband are in the mood for pasta/spaghetti? You can flavour it however you want, so it won't get boring. I sometimes add stewed tomatoes with it, or a creamy spinach sauce... but I think it's palatable enough to just eat with some pepper and maybe a bit of vegan Parmesan or nutritional yeast. Then you can maybe steam some broccoli or beans or whatever with it and it makes a pretty fast and easy gluten free vegan meal. Smiley

Spaghetti Squash with Roasted Tomato Sauce and Kidney Beans

1/2 tsp pepper
4 cups grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, halved
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 2tbsp olive oil
1 1tbsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp hot pepper flakes
1 can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
3tbsp chopped fresh parsley

* In a glass baking dish, toss together tomatoes, garlic, oil, vinegar, hot pepper flakes and pepper.
* Roast in 400F oven for 30 minutes.
* Stir in beans and parsley; roast until heated through and tomatoes are shriveled, about 10 minutes.
* Spoon over squash.

I have a wheat intolerant friend, so we often just substitute rice flour in things.

Try your asian grocer - rice noodles can be amazing. You can use them in stirfrys/satays/noodle salads.

French onion soup can be made on rice flour (it only needs a few teaspoons) and is vegan if you substitute olive oil for butter as I do. Just make sure you add a little salt. Mmmmm
