I had been wanting to make stuffed vegan, gluten-free shells for a long time now but I could never find gluten-free shells in stores and I didn't want to order them online. As I was looking for a replacement, I found gluten-free brown rice manicotti pasta tubes and decided to use them instead and I am so glad I did! I made these to bring dinner over to our friends who just had a baby. Everyone loved it and didn't know it was gluten-free or vegan! This could also be made with dairy or meat if you wanted, of course. I want to make this again but maybe with some Italian sausage or prosciutto! These look fancy (well - my pictures could use a little work, I recommend saving a little sauce to pour over the top at the very end) and are impressive yet so easy to make! I can't wait for you to try them!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
