Following a gluten-free diet doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a picnic with family or friends. Try these delicious ideas the next time you head to the park. Best of all, these items are easily found at Famous Foods!
1. Grilled Cheese On-the-Go
A cosy comfort food staple makes for the perfect picnic treat. Layer slices of your favourite cheeses on Glutenull’s Buckwheat Bread, then toast using a small pan or sandwich press. With the toasted gluten-free bread, your sandwich won’t become soggy when packed in a lunch basket. If it’s cool outside, take a thermos of Pacific Foods’ Red Pepper and Tomato Soup for the perfect grilled cheese companion.
2. Colourful Pasta Salad
Made with Explore Cuisine Organic Red Lentil pasta, a bright and flavourful pasta salad is a refreshing addition to your picnic. Mix red or balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, and olive oil to create a sauce for the pasta; top with canned artichokes, tomatoes, or black olives.
3. Roasted Chicken and Side Salad
Meal preppers will love roasting a chicken ahead of time, then using the meat for salads, soups, and sandwiches. For picnicking, pair your chicken dish with a salad made with bocconcini, fresh basil, and cherry tomatoes tossed in olive oil.
4. Quinoa Summer Salad with Lemon
This high-protein, gluten-free picnic salad is the perfect fuel for outdoor activities. Prepare quinoa, then add cubed cucumber, cherry tomatoes, fresh dill, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss the quinoa salad in lemon juice for a tangy twist.
5. Decadent Desserts
Don’t forget dessert when planning your picnic. Whip up a batch of treats using Glutino’s Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie mix. Wrap each brownie individually for a portable chocolate dessert.
