What are the best gluten free appetizers for any occasion?
The number of people eating gluten-free foods is growing – whether they are doing it because they are gluten intolerant, suffer from celiac disease or are simply looking for healthier ways to eat. If you aren’t on a gluten-free diet yourself, chances that someone at your party is are very high.
Not sure about your guests’ dietary restrictions? You can always ask them to outline any when they RSVP. If that isn’t possible, here are three good reasons why you should probably have at least one vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free option on your party menu:
· Your guests will be pleased that you made an effort
· Gluten-free doesn’t have to be boring
· Everyone can eat it
Keep the gluten-free food you are serving up away from all other food to avoid the risk of cross-contamination. Use separate surfaces to prepare the food and make sure you store it separately. It might sound like a bit of effort but trust us, your gluten-free guests will be thrilled!
If you think about it, a lot of the food we eat and enjoy is naturally gluten-free. Gluten-free food can be elegant, flavorful and eaten by all. We’ve put together a list of our top gluten-free appetizers for your upcoming holiday party that all your guests will love!
