Gluten-Free Essentials for a Killer Charcuterie Board

gluten free charcuterie board

If we’re being honest, most of the people on this team are full of gluten. But we all know loved ones (friends, family, followers!) that refrain for one reason or another—either serious health concerns like Celiac’s disease, or others because they just notice a general improvement in their wellbeing. It’s so easy to add a baguette to any situation, but less simple to find tasty gluten-free carbs, so we’re honoring our GF friends with these two charcuterie spreads (for kids and adults!).

Vermont Smoke and Cure Smoked Sausage and Uncured Pepperoni

Here are our top 3 gluten-free-charcuterie cracker picks that you can pick up right from Trader Joe’s!

3 Seed Sweet Potato Crackers
Step aside sad-excuse-for-a-gluten-substitute crackers, these are seriously SO GOOD and naturally gluten free! With just a few simple ingredients (corn, oil, sweet potato, flax seeds, black sesame seeds, chia seeds, and sea salt) you can feel good about sharing these with your fam and even better about the fact that you’ll probably eat the whole box in one sitting!

Quinoa and Black Bean infused Tortilla Chips
Trader Joe’s Quinoa and Black Bean infused Tortilla Chips are next level! These chips are salty, thick, crunchy and a surprisingly good addition to any charcuterie board. Drizzle one of these chips with honey, top with brie and our Smoked Pepperoni, for a perfectly savory, sweet, salty, smoky, flavor-packed snack.

Crunchy Black & White Rice Rolls
It can be really, really difficult to say no when your gluten-sensitive kids are throwing a temper tantrum about not being able to eat the same snacks as their friends (cue crippling stomach ache 20 minutes later.) Trader Joe’s Crunchy Black & White Rice Rolls are a great option for adding a bit of sweetness to their savory charcuterie board and an awesome replacement for sugary snacks (like Rice Krispie Treats.)

Vermont Smoke and Cure Mini Meat sticks platter

In addition to these cracker and bread substitutes, don’t forget other gluten-free adds like nut mixes, fruits (like grapes and figs), cornichons, honey, CHEESE, and of course – our Smoked Pepperoni, Summer Sausage, and Meat Sticks!
