Help! Friends are coming to stay and she's been diagnosed as gluten intolerant. Everything I can think to cook has some sort of gluten in it. Also needs to be kid friendly as my 6yo isn't always keen on new things. Anyone got any ideas that's better than chicken and salad LOL??!!

Stir frys ( use Tamari - it's a wheat free soy)
Kebabs - do lamb or salmon ( buy gluten free pita or wraps )
Tacos - shells should be gluten free
Soup ( if it's not too hot!)
Frittata or omelettes
San Choy bow ( in lettuce leaves - I do a prawn one)
Rice paper rolls
Any kind of roast and veggies
BBQ and veggies/salad

What about homemade fish and chips with a salad. You can make a gluten free batter (Google for recipes) or just grill/oven bake. Homemade pizzas, just buy gluten free bases. Set it up like a pizza station, lots of toppings and everyone can choose what they want. Rice dishes are also an option too.

You can get gluten free pasta or gnocchi at Woolworths or Coles. Pair it with your families favourite pasta sauce.

I thought about pasta. Does GF Taste the same as normal pasta?
Thanks for all the ideas. I was finding it hard as all the things I usually cook for guests have flour or other gluten products! And she was fussy enough without adding this in. Doesn't like curry, or other things that I could easily do.
Even the marinade I use has thickeners. Might have to stop being lazy and make a sauce from scratch LOL.

The gluten free pasta is surprisingly tasty. Not much difference really.

I can't notice too much difference with the GF pasta either.
You can also buy GF flour to substitute for normal flour.

Awesome! I was just worried it may be different and the kids would refuse it. Pasta it is!
