Gluten Free Holiday Pinwheels Recipe

Christmas is less than a week away, and I expect you could use some festive recipe ideas! This Gluten Free Holiday Pinwheels recipe is just the thing you need. It fills all the necessary requirements for a go-to holiday recipe:

  • Easy
  • Tasty
  • Make-ahead
  • Travels well
  • Festive

Speckled with red and green, these vegetarian pinwheels are a pretty dish to take along to a holiday party or you can make them for your own celebration. The addition of goat cheese and pickled asparagus makes them just a bit more sophisticated than your typical cream cheese and deli meat pinwheels that you see so often. If you’ve never had pickled asparagus – try it! Tillen Farms makes great pickled asparagus and other pickled veggies that are all natural and perfectly crisp.

Gluten-Free Holiday Pinwheel Recipe

Gluten Free Holiday Pinwheels Recipe


1 (12-ounce) jar Tillen Farms pickled asparagus
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
8 ounces soft goat cheese, at room temperature
Juice and zest (finely grated) of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon minced chives (or other herb of choice)
Pinch kosher or fine sea salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
5 gluten free wraps
1 red bell pepper, seeded, deveined, and chopped


Drain the asparagus, dry with paper towels, and slice into ¼-inch pieces. Set aside.

Combine the cheeses, lemon juice and zest, chives, salt, and pepper, mixing until fully combined.

Divide the mixture equally among the wraps and spread into an even layer, covering the entire wrap.

Sprinkle on the sliced asparagus and chopped peppers. Roll tightly, then wrap each roll individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 1 day.

Before serving, slice into ¼-inch slices and serve on a platter.
