Whether you see stuffing as a Thanksgiving treasure or year-round staple of life, there’s no need to give up the seasoned side dish just because you’re on a gluten-free diet. You can substitute wheat-based bread crumbs with a number of allergen-free alternatives in order to produce a yummy feast the whole family will be able to enjoy. Nowadays, you really can have your stuffing and eat it, too.
Thanksgiving is a fantastic tradition and it has a special place in the hearts of most Americans. It is also a holiday that strongly emphasizes the food – and that creates a lot of challenges for anyone who cannot eat gluten. Avoiding gluten at Thanksgiving can be difficult, especially for people who are relatively new to a gluten free diet. There are so many foods that can trip you up, like the stuffing in a turkey or any creamy dishes, as these are sometimes thickened with flour. That doesn’t mean you can’t share though! So there’s even more reason to prepare enough for everyone. And now that the gluten-free fad is in full swing, there are loads of delicious recipes, amazing-looking recipes that can be found online.
If you thought that cooking Thanksgiving dinner was tough enough, try making a vegan Thanksgiving dinner. Traditional approaches to Thanksgiving certainly aren’t vegan friendly, but that doesn’t mean that you’ll get left out this year! In fact, with a little bit of hunting you can find vegan alternatives to pretty much any item on the Thanksgiving menu. This is especially great if you are entertaining or cooking for mixed company, because it means that you can prepare vegan alternatives to many dishes without people ever noticing.
