5 Gluten-Free Meal Ideas for When You Don’t Want to Cook

5 Gluten-Free Meals for When It’s Too Hot to Cook

We’re in what they call the “dog days of summer.” Back-to-school is just around the corner, but the heat is just as sweltering as it was on July 4th. Just turning the oven on for dinner puts your AC into overdrive.

When it’s too hot to cook but you still have to eat something—preferably something light and nutritious—we turn to these easy gluten-free meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No cooking required! (Toasters and microwaves don’t count!)

1. Keto-Friendly Pesto Avocado Sandwich

Yes, we’ve achieved that rare feat of a sandwich that is both keto AND vegetarian. The secret? Mikey’s Gluten-Free English Muffins. They’re low carb and the perfect swap for bread. This sandwich is also loaded with fresh veggies—perfect for using up your farmers’ market haul.

2. Avocado Toast with Prosciutto and Arugula

We find ourselves eating avocado toast for any meal of the day during summer. It’s got enough protein to be filling, but light enough to not weigh you down in the heat. This one, with prosciutto and arugula, happens to be keto as well thanks to the Mikey’s Gluten-Free English Muffins.

3. Stacked Turkey Sandwich with Spicy Mayo

Try this gluten-free club sandwich when you’re stomach’s rumbling. It’s got a double layer of turkey, a “secret sauce” with a hint of heat, lettuce, tomato and avocado, all between toasted low-carb, keto and paleo English muffins.

4. Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Tacos

For a refreshing breakfast or light dessert, may we suggest fruit tacos? It’s like a fruit salad, but better, because it’s on a Mikey’s Cassava Flour tortilla with a smear of Greek yogurt (dairy-free, if you prefer) and a hint of cinnamon. Yum!

5. Mikey’s Pizza Pockets

Last, but not least, the easiest gluten-free meal of all: Mikey’s Pizza Pockets. Pop one in the microwave and you’ll be feasting on your favorite comfort food in 2 minutes. It’s the perfect quick meal for a hot day when you don’t want to cook—or any day when you don’t want to cook!
