A collection of Healthy Gluten Free Recipes to beat the January slump for the #CookBlogShare Week 3 2022 recipe link-up.
Healthy Gluten Free Recipes and a big welcome to #CookBlogShare 2022
Welcome to the first #CookBlogShare recipe link up of 2022… And with it, a collection of Healthy Gluten Free Recipes. Just to explain to anyone who hasn’t the foggiest what I am talking about… Cook Blog Share is a weekly recipe collection organised with a group of talented bloggers and designed to support each other in our hard work bringing great food to the internet.
This week, I have unexpectedly stepped in to help out in hosting, after ill-health has delayed its 2022 start. It’s the least I can do.
The recipes featured are taken partly from those shared to the last link-up in December (hosted by Sew White), with a handful of additional recipes that we have here at Gluten Free Alchemist. ALL the recipe links shared below are either naturally gluten free, or require a minimal tweak to ensure they are Coeliac (Celiac) safe.
For this first round up of the year, I’ve chosen to pick and share some Healthy Gluten Free Recipes. January always seems to be ‘slump month’. And with the excesses of Christmas weighing literally on the scales, alongside the grumpiness of the dark and cold, we are all in need of food that delivers great energy and nutrition, without a mountain of calories…

And with that… on to the recipes. A little random perhaps, but all utterly delicious. From Healthy Gluten Free Recipes with Chicken, to a few seasoned with Indian Spice or rooted in the Middle East… And lastly a couple of sides and sweeter treats.
Healthy Gluten Free Recipes with Chicken
Leftover Turkey Salad from Sew White – Although the recipe shared is made with left-over turkey, it’s a straight swap to make with chicken. It’s fresh and super-healthy. And it will make the perfect light on calories, yet still protein-packed sustenance.
Quick Miso Ginger Chicken Broth from The Family Food Kitchen – Super-speedy, warming and deliciously packed full of flavour. With the temperatures feeling decidedly cold over here in the UK, this one definitely comes into the bracket of healthier gluten free recipes to give comfort. And made with Buckwheat noodles, it’s already pretty much gluten free. Just be certain to use gluten free Tamari in place of soy sauce. And to check the miso and stock for any hidden gluten or cross contamination risk.
Chicken and Chorizo Stew with Cannellini Beans from Carrie’s Kitchen – What’s not to love? It’s hearty and warming and packed full of great nutrition. The ideal comfort food that will boost your energy levels while giving you a cuddle at the same time. Serve with standard rice or jacket potato or go really healthy with a delicious side of seasoned Buckwheat. As always, check the chorizo and stock for any hidden gluten-risk.
Healthy Gluten Free Recipes with Indian Spice
Easy Tandoori Salmon (Oven Baked) from Go Healthy Ever After – This totally has my attention. I absolutely adore salmon and with Sheeba’s step by step guide to spicing, you’ll have the most tender, melt-in-the-mouth, oven-baked Tandoori Salmon cooked in just 10 minutes. Perfectly healthy, naturally gluten free and utterly delicious. I NEED this in my life. I also reckon it will pair amazingly with my Soft Gluten Free Roti.
Rich with Iron-packed spinach and sustaining bites of creamy Paneer cheese, my Saag Paneer is way more than a side dish. Eat it as a meal in its own right, with some Indian Flatbreads. Super-healthy, gluten free srumptiousness.
This amazing Red Lentil Dahl continues the curry theme… And is also one of our favourite healthy and nutritious meal recipes at Gluten Free Alchemist. I always make a huge vat of the stuff, because I know everyone loves it and we will happily eat it for several meals.
And lastly in the Indian spiced bracket… My recipe for healthy Vegan Keema Matar is a revelation for veggies. As traditional as it comes, but without the meat.
Healthy Gluten Free Recipes from Middle-Eastern Cuisine
You can’t get much better than a middle-eastern Shakshuka for a nutritious plate of loveliness. Perfectly-spiced, eggs in tomatoes that are as good for you as they are beautiful. Head over to the blog post for the low down on how to make the best Shakshuka in your own kitchen… No flights necessary.
Or how about some Caramelised Onion Hummus…? Rich and yellow with the super-food magic of turmeric and packed with healthy chickpeas. That’s got to give a January boost!
A couple of sides… Healthy Gluten Free Recipes for extras
Brussels Sprout Slaw with Lemon and Mustard Dressing from Tin and Thyme – I can’t resist sprouts either! And while they are still in season, I am doing all I can to get my fill. This recipe for using sprouts in Slaw, sounds not only delicious, but genius too! Full of good stuff and super-simple to make, I’d happily munch my way through a whole bowl for lunch.
If you’ve never tried cooking Buckwheat Groats, then why not give them a go? They are a fabulous, naturally gluten free sub for rice… But way more healthy! My step-by-step guide on how to cook buckwheat to perfection will make sure you get to enjoy them at their best.
Healthy Gluten Free Recipes for something a little sweet
And if you fancy something a little sweet, we have that covered too… My Granola Pots and Shots with Yoghurt and Berries will give you all the sweetness you need without any guilt whatsoever. Light, fruity and delicious, they offer an easy-to-make, healthy treat.
Healthy Energy Balls with Hazelnut and Cacao – With just 5 ingredients, these little mouthfuls are packed with goodness. A perfect recipe for a healthy gluten free, no-bake energy boost at any time of the day.
Still need chocolate and dessert? Make 3 ingredient Chocolate Avocado Mousse. It may be a healthy gluten free recipe… But that doesn’t stop it tasting utterly decadent.
