I’m often asked for super speedy ideas for gluten free midweek meals, so I have written a little recipe round up. This is a collection of all my gluten free recipes that can be made in 15 minutes. From satisfying pasta dishes and peanut butter noodles to cheddar quesadillas and crispy chickpea bowls, there’s something for everyone.
Under each recipe heading you’ll find a little description of what the recipe features, as well as whether it is naturally dairy free/vegetarian/vegan or can be easily adapted. All meals listed are gluten free.

Gluten Free 15-Minute Midweek Meals
1. Peanut Butter Tahini Noodles (DF, VO, VGO)
Ever popular with you guys, I see these gluten free noodles being made time and time again and get such great feedback about this recipe. It’s one we love making at home too, in fact my husband is cooking up a prawn version for our dinner right now as I type this!
These peanut butter tahini noodles are super speedy to whip up. The recipe produces a gorgeous sesame peanut gluten free stir fry that can easily be made vegetarian or vegan by simply omitting the chicken. It still tastes just as good. From preparation, through cooking, to eating, this delight only takes 15 minutes to make and it is brimming with crunchy veggies and smothered in a tasty satay-style sauce.
Minimal effort for maximum molten cheddar cheese goodnesssssss. Try these simple quesadillas with optional homemade tomato salsa for scooping mmm mmmm.
3. Crispy Spiced Chickpea Bowl (DFO, V, VGO)
Golden crispy chickpeas mix with sesame-packed zatar spice and paprika, then are topped with sweet red sauteed red onion, a minted yoghurt drizzle and creamy side of avocado. Yums! If you are vegan or dairy free, switch the yoghurt out and try a tahini drizzle instead as that flavour combination would be equally delicious.
A tasty pasta dish using smoked salmon for speedy cooking. The result is one taaaaasty dinner!
5. Healthy Chicken Kebabs (DFO)
These yoghurt, herb and paprika marinated chicken kebabs are a healthy and tasty dinner idea. Serve them with pitta bread and salad, or maybe even my homemade Greek Salad.
6. French Toast (DFO, V)
YES french toast is a legit dinner choices IMO :D. French toast is incredibly easy to make – simply use a dairy free milk alternative if you cannot tolerate dairy. This works as a base for both sweet and savoury toppings.
7. Pesto Pasta with Mushrooms & Leeks (DFO, V, VGO)
This is a staple dish in our household, especially for nights when we want a filling dinner and minimal effort. Softened leeks and mushroom mix with pesto and a clove of garlic for maximum flavour. Serve the sauce on gluten free spaghetti and top with cheese nom nom nom.
Use a dairy free, vegan pesto if you need to adapt this dish to suit your dietary requirements.
Oh these flavours totally hit the mark for me whenever I make this salad. It’s perfect for using up roast chicken leftovers. Try it with my homemade garlic bread (which is also very quick to make).
9. Classic Pancakes (DFO, V)
I love savoury pancakes! These classic pancakes can be topped with cheese/ham/roasted veggies/mushrooms/spinach/chorizo/egg/whatever-floats-your-boat. Mega quick to make.
Pimp your gluten free avotoast with this feta, pomegranate topping!
