If your Super Bowl party requires a gluten-free menu safe for celiac disease, there are many options. From chili to cornbread, the food you serve can be healthy and delicious. These ideas will help you put together a menu which leaves guests begging for more.


Chili is one of the traditional items seen at many Super Bowl parties, and it is not difficult to adjust recipes to make it gluten-free and healthier. A hot bowl of chili served with soft cornbread will help your guests stay warm as they watch the football game. The Green Diva has recipes for turkey chili and vegan chili, so the vegetarians at your party will not be left out. She also shares her gluten-free cornbread recipe on the same page which requires cornmeal, millet and rice flour.

Chips and dip are some of the most popular snacks during Super Bowl parties. You can find gluten-free chips from multiple brands at grocery stores including Frito-Lay, POPchips, Kettle and others. However, you should read each package carefully because some flavors may contain gluten. You can also purchase gluten-free dips, but if you are interested in making your own try the game day guacamole recipe from Primal Plate which is gluten-free and dairy-free. The cheese dip recipe from the Plant-powered kitchen is also gluten-free and dairy-free while being safe for vegans and people with celiac disease.

Your guests will probably expect to see some type of wings at your gathering, and Yummly has multiple gluten-free buffalo wing recipes. If you are looking for more ideas to fill your Super Bowl party table, then consider adding gluten-free stuffed mushrooms or modify the recipe by substituting zucchini, eggplant, artichokes, cabbage or bell peppers. You can also serve the traditional platters of cut fruit, vegetables and cheese, but you may want to experiment with serving these items on skewers for easier snacking or consider taking it to the extreme by constructing a food football stadium for the Super Bowl. If all else fails, then you can order a gluten-free pizza from Pizza Hut, Papa Murphy’s, Domino’s, Donatos or another location as long as you check on cross-contamination and shared kitchen facilities.
