Whether you've had a long day, a bad break up, or are just missing home, comfort food is the soul food that we all go for. It's rich in flavor, delectable to eat, and a well-deserved treat. Unfortunately, many comfort foods are breaded or contain white flour, meaning anyone who eats gluten-free can't enjoy these eats. Below are some of my favorite gluten-free comfort food recipes for anyone who's gluten intolerant. 

1. Burrata Jalapeño Poppers

vegetable, rice, sauce, meat, fish, herb, seafood, risotto, parsley

With three simple ingredients, you can have a gluten-free and vegan pizza crust ready for you to eat whenever you'd like. And no, this does not involve any cauliflower, in case you were worried. In this recipe, quinoa is the MVP. 

10. Buckwheat Crepe

This savory crepe recipe is definitely comforting but won't weigh you down like some of the other recipes on this list. If you cook the crepe on a well buttered pan, it'll taste even richer.
