Even though I never knowingly cheat on my gluten-free diet (the memory of how miserable I was before my celiac disease was diagnosed makes cheating a very unappealing option), I find that the fastest (and most economical) foods I can make a meal of are often those without any or with few gluten-free labels because they are naturally gluten free foods. See below:

12 Minute Minestrone: Vegan & Gluten-Free

1 cup uncooked gluten-free rice pasta
15 oz can tomato soup (no gluten-containing ingredients)
3 cups diced frozen butternut squash
15 oz can kidney beans
2 cups cooked frozen haricots verts (not shown)
1T dried oregano
1 tsp salt

boil salted water in medium saucepan
add pasta and cook until slightly underdone (approximately 8 minutes)
mix rest of ingredients in 2 qt casserole or microwaveable bowl.
add pasta and stir.
cook in microwave until all is heated through (approximately 4 minutes).

2 generous or 4 smaller servings
