Gluten-Free Peas — Menu Plan April 20

By · Print This Post Print This Post

SpringPeasThis week, the theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Peas.

Thanks to how well these little veggies freeze, we’re able to eat them year round. But, if you’re lucky enough to get them freshly picked in the spring, they’re even better.

We like them in cold salads, steamed, and added to soups, pastas, and casseroles. Do you prefer to eat them cold or cooked?

Here are some yummy Gluten-Free recipes with Peas I found:

Cold or Raw:

Warm or Cooked:

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Angela’s Kitchen: Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Menu
Angela loves to grow sugar snap peas in her garden, and the family loves to eat them fresh. This week, she’s making Jules’ “Eat Your Veggies!” Bread (aka Pea-Powered Zucchini Bread) for breakfast. For dinners, she’s making Slow-Cooker Cassoulet, Gingered Beef and Broccoli Salad Bowls, Tuna Noodle & Vegetable Casserole (with peas), Steak and Potato Salad, and Curried Shrimp and Rice (with sugar snap peas).

Mom’s Plans: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free
Melissa’s family is eating peas this week in Tuna Noodle Casserole and Old Fashioned Vegetable Beef Soup. They’ll also be enjoying Grilled Chicken, Hamburgers, Sausage, and Tuna Patties. I’m a little jealous that she’s making Homemade Sushi with Smoked Salmon, Cucumber, and Avocado for a birthday celebration.

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth says she doesn’t often find fresh peas, and has to rely on frozen or canned peas for her recipes. This week, she’s eating peas in Fried Rice. For the rest of the week, she’s eating BBQ Chop Wraps, Strawberry Balsamic Salad Wrap with Cashew Cheese, Fast Slow-Cooker Pork Chops, 5-Ingredient Honey Mustard Salmon, Honey Basil Veggie Kabobs, and Pizza.

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 Peas in meals.

Hi! Thanks for hosting! My post is up: http://orgjunkie.com/2015/04/menu-plan-monday-april-2015.html

As always, thanks for the awesome menu inspiration. That wild rice salad looks YUM!


We love peas! Most of the time here they are simply eaten as a side dish, our veggie if you will, but sometimes I enjoy them in a Seven-Layer Salad like yours and I almost always add them to soups, stews, and roasts. Fresh peas really are a special treat!

Thank you all for the great ideas!


Thanks for hosting! We love peas in tuna noodle casserole and beef stew! Your shredded chicken tacos look amazing!
