If you are one of the millions of Americans who have to stick to a gluten-free diet, there’s never been a better time for finding delicious gluten-free alternatives.

There are more gluten-free cookbooks available than ever before. The latest, “The Cooking Light Gluten-Free Cookbook” (Oxmoor House, $21.95), contains more than 150 recipes, including those comfort foods that everyone hates to give up – pizza, cake, meatloaf and lasagna.

The book includes advice on how to stock a gluten-free kitchen and how to read food labels. Store-bought ingredients that could potentially contain gluten (soy sauce and chicken broth, for example) are written in red and marked with the phrase “Check for gluten.”

But most of the book consists of recipes that look as delicious as those you’d find in any other cookbook. The grilled plum and prosciutto-stuffed pork chops, the roasted vegetable pasta and the spicy Asian noodles with chicken would tempt any diner.
