Nowadays, being vegan is quite simple (and SO worth it.) But add on other dietary restrictions and it may get a bit more complicated. Gluten-free nut-free vegan recipes may seem rare, but there are actually so many of them. You can make so many different kinds of foods from pizzas to cakes to ice cream —  the options are endless. Being a gluten-free nut-free vegan doesn’t have to be boring. It’s all about creativity! Some great staples to get started are gluten-free oats, potatoes, veggies, fruits, beans, and gluten-free flours. This list just scratches the surface of gluten-free nut-free vegan recipes!
