Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free ‘Cheesy’ Couscous Bake

I totally forgot to tell you.

I’m obsessed with tossing a bunch of ingredients into a baking dish and creating a masterpiece.

It’s kinda fun and exciting but a bit nerve wracking when you’re not sure if the recipe is going to explode or come out a perfect meal.

In this case….it’s perfect.

I think baking is the best part about the winter season.

Creating warm, hearty casserole recipes and serving them to our families goes beyond a chilled salad or a smoothie.

Am I wrong?

Doesn’t it feel so good to eat something beautiful hot out of the oven?

I thought so.

Anyway, onto our couscous recipe we go.

This one is going to be a favorite of yours because it surely is one of mine.

I’ve made it a few times already and everyone loved it.

I think it’d be great for a potluck or a holiday party. Or a Friday night when you open a bag of tortilla chips and all you wanna do is find a hearty dip to dig ‘em into.

Yup. You can use this couscous bake for that, too.

Go ahead.

I have a feeling it’ll be popular with all you guys during the Superbowl.

But that’s a few months away so just bookmark this and you’ll be all set come February.

Now that Christmas is right around the corner you can serve this to your guests or whip this recipe up to bring to a holiday party. I bet no one else is bringing a dairy-free and gluten-free ‘cheesy’ couscous bake.

And don’t forget the chips.

The dunking part makes this recipe so fun!

Hi! This looks delicious! Would it be possible to add chicken to it somehow?


Amie December 16, 2013 at 11:59 am

Thank you so much Holly; yes of course. You can add 1 cup of shredded chicken to this! Enjoy. oxxx


Sarah W December 16, 2013 at 12:25 pm

What a delicious looking masterpiece!! I can’t wait to make it for my family!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful ideas that you offer, whether they are food or non-food related!!


Debra Lee December 16, 2013 at 12:39 pm

This is wonderful for all the dippers in the world!


Julia December 16, 2013 at 1:15 pm

Any way to make this egg free? :)


Amie December 16, 2013 at 1:21 pm

Julia, you can try the Energ egg replacement but I haven’t tried that! Enjoy.


Lori Williams December 16, 2013 at 1:35 pm

I don’t think I’ve ever had couscous before. This sounds really good. Is couscous different than quinoa? What about health benefits. I love to try gluten free recipes especially, because my son has celiac and has such a hard time not eating gluten. He loves Udi’s Sandwich bread, and that’s why I’m entering this giveaway for Udi’s Snacks! Thanks for all the great info and giveaways. You are so awesome! Sending hugs!


marlies December 16, 2013 at 1:56 pm

You’re so right! There’s something very comforting about pulling a warm casserole out of the oven in these cold wintery months. I’m looking forward to trying this!


Jessica December 16, 2013 at 2:07 pm

I love that you make your recipes GF!!! I hope I win the udi’s giveaway!!


Debbie (Accidently Delish) December 16, 2013 at 6:05 pm

That looks amazing! I am such a dipper and love that you included that in the post! I seriously dip/dunk everything. And I love UDI’s bread products so I’m sure their chips are amazing as well.

I’m making this bake regardless…


Todd Bliss December 16, 2013 at 6:31 pm

This looks really good! Going to make it for Christmas!


LLY December 16, 2013 at 9:48 pm

Hi Amie, a lot of your recipes have grains…I’ve been reading “Grain Brain”, “Wheat Belly” and anti-grain blogs and they make really valid points re: inflation. Can I ask where you stand on this and the links?


Amie December 16, 2013 at 9:52 pm

Thanks and great to hear from you Lly; grains can be part of a very healthy diet. You need to read everything with a grain of salt … there are vegan books that say that’s healthy and paleo books saying meat is healthy and everything else…you need to do what’s right for your body and what makes you feel good. If grains bother your stomach, then you can try to avoid them, but if they don’t then they are full of nutrients. Just make sure to buy organic good quality. Enjoy!!!


april December 16, 2013 at 10:43 pm

You had me had “cheesy”. :) Sounds like a perfect dish to bring to a holiday potluck or party!


Jeanette | Jeanette's Healthy Living December 16, 2013 at 11:26 pm

Love this cozy casserole! I’ve never seen brown rice couscous – going to have to keep an eye out for that next time I’m at the store.


Amie December 16, 2013 at 11:52 pm
