1. Mini Chicken and Beef Tacos

Pulled breast meat makes these teeny-tiny tacos surprisingly filling. If chicken isn't your thing, go for the mini beef tacos instead, made with tender pulled beef and roasted tomatillo salsa. (Both are fried in soybean oil for extra crunch.)

3. Gochujang Paste

If you don't have this pantry staple on hand 24/7, you're missing out. Dating back to at least 17th-century Korea, the paste is a mix of fermented soybeans, rice, barley and spicy red peppers. Use it in soups, marinades, glazes, dips and so much more.

Every wheat-free eater should have one of these versatile crusts in their freezer. Made in Italy with cauliflower, rice flour and chickpea flour, the dough has been folded to create crispy, thin layers when baked, just like standard pizza crust.

8. Turkeyless Ground

Meatless Monday just got a whole lot more exciting. This blend of pea protein and wheat protein simulates the texture of turkey, but don't let the plant-based mix fool you. It's still decidedly satisfying at 21 grams of protein per serving.
