I invited two of my good friends over for dinner in the next few weeks but he's celiac.

Any ideas for a gluten-free dinner? :)

Thanks!

There's plenty of information online; I do not know anyone who is gluten free so I cannot offer anything from a personal standpoint.

I got super excited that I received a reply!

I was thinking about Chinese food but couldn't find any gluten-free ones.

I will check them out. Thanks!

Be careful of Chinese food, as well.
Most soy sauce for example is made from wheat (How they get soy from wheat I don't know) check the labels of every thing you will use....you can get gluten free soy, but you need to look for it.
Another thing to watch out for is cross contamination.
Neither my wife nor I are celiac, but her cuz is.
When she comes over, we use a new tub of marge, a new everything in fact. She is so sensitive to gluten that even a crumb of ordinary bread will put her in hospital.

As an aside, gluten free cake mixes are yuk. I found that substituting sufficient eggs to replace water (400g mls or so) beating the eggs til fluffy and folding into dry ingredients makes a rather nice sponge out of the affair.

A vegetable stir fry with brown rice should be good. Can use fresh veggies, gluten free soy sauce, and gluten free meat. May have to ask if they can have brown rice, and what type of oil to use. Olive oil is gluten-free, i believe.
