Gluten Free Thanksgiving

Gluten Free Thanksgiving

For some, cutting gluten out is a health choice, and for some, it can be the difference between being healthy or VERY sick. Gluten free products have come a LONG way. I was curious to see what a gluten free thanksgiving might look like….and it looks pretty delicious! At Hofstedes we carry a large selection of gluten free pasta’s, sauces, bread, & bakery items to help support your gluten free diet. Here are a few gluten free recipes to try this Thanksgiving!

Butternut Squash and Quinoa Pilaf

“Quinoa, butternut squash, and almonds combine to make this hearty vegetarian side dish. It’s perfect for a family dinner or to delight your vegan friends on Thanksgiving.”

Three cheese whipped potatoes

“Give the usual mashed potatoes a rest and serve this side dish instead. The potatoes get creaminess and super flavor from ricotta, cottage and Gorgonzola cheeses.”

Spaghetti squash with feta

I am not a squash fan, but this year I grew spaghetti squash in my garden for the first time. I have been experimenting with different ways of using it. I am convinced it is the squash for people who hate squash. Its super versatile, easy to cook (I just microwave it) and this recipe makes a great unexpected side dish to your thanksgiving dinner.

Gluten free bean & mushroom casserole

Traditional bean casserole is normally not an option for those cutting the gluten, but this modified version keeps all the flavour and ditches the gluten. They sub out the breading on the onions for crushed rice cereal. Brilliant!

Gluten free stuffing (or you can also do the Keto friendly stuffing listed on the Keto friendly Thanksgiving post)

Or my favorite, this one from Jamie Oliver  (scroll down the page to the Gluten free version)

Some Dessert Options:

Crustless Apple Pie 

Gluten free pumpkin spice cream puffs 

Gluten free pie crust
