As a nutritious food containing 21% of your daily recommended fiber, pears are naturally filling. Pears are a versatile ingredient in sweet and savory dishes alike, whether those dishes are plant-based or contain meat. One of the most wonderful things about pears is that they are a safe food to eat for many special diets and for those with dietary restrictions. This includes gluten-free, and we have a large selection of gluten-free recipes to satisfy every craving. These are five of our favorites…
Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Pear Bread
Says recipe creator Carol Kicinski, “Talk about delicious—delicate pear flavor, just sweet enough, moist with a golden brown crust and that gorgeous split down the middle. Pears add such an elegant sweetness and delightful moistness—this bread certainly deserves to be at the top of my list for favorite gluten-free quick breads!”
This lovely and unique appetizer is somewhat like a traditional galette, but plant-based, gluten-free and full of wonderfully contrasting flavors like butternut squash and pomegranate.
Vegan Spinach and Kale Pear Pizza
This Easy Vegan Spinach and Kale Pear Pizza is an absolute crowd pleaser! A homemade gluten-free dough with some salt and pepper, topped with some sliced pears and veggies, no one can say no to this pizza. Vegan or not, you will love this pizza!
Pear Ginger Thumbprints with Caramel Drizzle
Says blogger (and pear lover) Cara Lyons of Cara’s Cravings, “These soft and chewy grain-free ginger and molasses cookies are filled with spiced pears and finished with a creamy caramel drizzle. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and naturally sweetened.” We’d chime in our agreement, but our mouths are full of cookies.
Pear, Smoked Ham, and Arugula Open-Faced Sandwich
This sandwich features sweet, peppery, tangy, salty, and smoky flavors on top of your choice of gluten-free bread. It’s also one of the easiest meals you can make, whether for a quick weeknight dinner, an easy at-home lunch, or for a filling snack.
