There was a lot of internet advice that mentioned dining as a gluten-free vegetarian in Disney is so easy, and Disney is so accommodating. I was dubious, but guess what — The internet can be right sometimes! Here are just some of the vegetarian and gluten-free Disney yummies I got to enjoy on the trip…

Megan-simple, winter-friendly Chana Saag (chickpeas with spinach)

This Megan-simple recipe from our menu turns out to also be super fast, vegan, gluten free, inexpensive, winter-friendly (frozen and canned ingredients totally fine) and yummy! This simplified recipe relies on ingredients that are easily available in a fairly well-stocked pantry, or everyday grocery store. Don't be frightened by the long list — this is actually very easy to make.
