When Gluten Free Can Still Mean Gluttony: Our Fave Gluten Free Starters

Look, gluttony may well be one of the "seven deadly sins", but we think it's a bigger sin not to indulge from time to time. For some of us, eating gluten can be bad enough in itself, but that's no reason not to eat out.

Up and down the country, people with special dietary requirements are feeling more and more welcome in restaurants. From vegetarian takeaways up North in Leeds, through to vegan pizzas in London, there's no reason that anyone has to feel left out at home, or worse still, not enjoy incredible food at all.

If you can't have gluten - or you simply prefer not to - there are still plenty of delicious dishes you can try. And if you don't want to cook? Obviously, you can simply order in!

1. Manna Dew: Butternut Squash Salad

Manna Dew just doesn't "do" gluten. Like, at all. As the first 100% gluten-free patisserie of its kind in London, the bakery is proud to offer an array of tasty treats home made in its very own state-of-the-art kitchen. This Butternut Squash Salad is the perfect starter before any kind of main event, and it's vegetarian, too.

2. Leggero: Chickpeas Polpette

This completely gluten-free, healthy Italian restaurant has something for everyone. Leggero tries its best to cater to as many needs as possible, from meat-eaters to vegetarians, vegans and more. One of the more popular starters is Chickpeas Polpette. It's entirely vegan and packed full of protein. Oh, and the best bit? It tastes amazing, too.

3. Pizza Express: Buffalo Mozzarella & Tomato Salad

Pizza Express is a chain that everyone knows and loves, and it can be found in practically every town centre. Still too far? You can have anything you want delivered these days! This Buffalo Mozzarella & Tomato Salad doesn't have any gluten in it, but it does come absolutely bursting with flavour. Pesto, basil and extra virgin olive oil really help bring it to life.


4. Asha's: Scottish Salmon Tikka Salad

There are many different types of cuisine that cater to gluten-free diets, and one of them is Indian. Asha's in Manchester offers all the different kinds of Indian dishes that you might imagine, but many of them don't have gluten in at all. As a Michelin star restaurant, you already know it's good. But this salmon salad goes that one step further, by being more accessible for more diners. Containing salmon tikka cooked in a tandoori oven, served over a bed of salad and drizzled with coriander and olive oil, it doesn't need anything else, either.


Gluten free doesn't mean "fussy", "picky", or anything else. You deserve choices, too. Fortunately, you don't have to look far in order to find them right here on Deliveroo.
