30 Days Gluten Free Quick & Easy Meals: Day 30 - Lauren's Zucchini, Hummus, and Turkey Plate

Welcome to 30 Days Gluten Free Quick & Easy Meals!


Thank you so much for participating and reading along during the last 30 Days! It's been quite a journey! I hope you have learned as much as I have about how to prepare quick, easy, tasty, and healthy gluten free meals. I think I've learned that really it just takes a willingness to do a tiny bit of preparation and a whole lot of imagination!


Gluten free meals don't have to be fancy, have tons of ingredients, or look like they came from a 5 star restaurant. Simple, delicious, and whole food is all it takes to be a great gluten free home cook!


Now on to our wonderful post today, our last post in 30 Days Gluten Free Quick & Easy Meals.
Today's post is written by the lovely Lauren author of the blog, The Celiac Diva.

Day 30 - Celiac Diva's Zucchini, Hummus, and Turkey Plate




Let's just put it out there, I'm a terrible cook! So learning from all of you has been such a joy. This quick meal is healthy, low sugar, low sodium, high protein, no cooking, veggy filled dish! Prep time- 8 minutes!



The Celiac Diva's Zucchini, Hummus, and Turkey Plate!

1 Zucchini
1 Squash
Boars Head Low Sodium Chicken (or your fav meat)
Hummus (original is great, also, roasted red pepper is delish!)
Spinach Leaf Lettuce
Mary's Gone Crackers
Mustard (optional)

Directions for the mini-sandwiches:

Step 1: Cut up zucchini and squash
Step 2 Lay out sandwich crackers on plate
Step 3: Spread hummus on the crackers (I made four mini-sandwiches)
Step 3: Layer zucchini slice on top the hummus
Step 4: Layer Chicken on top of zucchini slice
Step 5: Pull stem off Spinach leaf and layer on Chicken
Step 6: Spread hummus on top of the spinach leaf (if you want more flavor, add mustard too)
Step 7: Layer cracker on top, and ta-da! It's a health filled min-sandwich! =)
Step 8: Lay out the remaining zucchini, squash, and hummus on plate for dip time!
