Gluten-Free Cajun Food — Menu Plan July 6

By · Print This Post Print This Post

AmericanCajunThis month, the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is exploring American foods from different parts of the country. This week, we start with Cajun foods from Louisiana.  

Cajun food is very flavorful and often spicy. You will find Cajun food in the southern parts of Louisiana, where it originated. It is common for Cajun meals to include seafood from the region (shrimp, crawfish, catfish), Spicy Sausage, Rice, local veggies (green pepper, onion, celery, okra, tomatoes), and Spice (cayenne, black pepper).

Check out these Gluten-Free Recipes with Cajun flavors and Louisiana tastes to try this week:

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Mom’s Plans: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free
No Cajun meals on her menu this week. Instead, Melissa’s family is doing a pantry challenge, and has come up with some great meals for the week, including some good ones using a slow-cooker.  Slow-Cooker Stuffed Peppers, CrockPot Lasagna Soup, Spaghetti with ground turkey, Zucchini Carrot Chicken Soup, and Slow-Cooker Tortilla Chicken Soup. For more meal ideas check out the full menu plan at Mom’s Plans this week.

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth isn’t cooking Cajun this week either. Her family will be eating Roast with carrots and celery in the crock pot, Chicken, Beans and hotdogs, Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta, Pizza, and Fish. She could add some cajun spices to any of those to “kick it up a notch,” as Emeril would say.

Come back later to check this week’s post and see who else may be sharing their gluten-free menus, recipe links, and ideas for including Watermelon in meals.
