Make Thanksgiving GLUTEN FREE with These Tips & Tricks

RSS

Thanksgiving can be a stressful time for those with gluten sensitivities whether its the one cooking or the one eating gluten free. There are many considerations that need to be taken to ensure a safe meal. 

However, many typical Thanksgiving staple foods can be easily made gluten free without a lot of fuss and worry. Here are a few tips and trips on how to make the typical thanksgiving foods gluten free. 

 

Turkey –  Make sure the turkey you purchase says gluten free on package or call manufacture to be sure its gluten free (sometimes companies add broth or spices that may contain gluten). No need to worry, it's relatively easy to find a gluten free turkey. If your host is using glutenous stuffing, urge them not to stuff the turkey, but rather cook the stuffing in a casserole dish.

Rolls- Don't fuss with flour blends or cross-contact.. Buy a Gluten Free Roll mix! Use parchment paper on your baking sheet and your good to go! 

Stuffing – There are gluten free stuffing mixes you can buy, but you may need to search online to find one. You can also find gluten free bread crumbs in stores or online if you want to make one from scratch. Just make sure any ingredients or spices you add are gluten free.

Gravy- Use corn starch (make sure its gluten free) to thicken instead of wheat flour. Make sure to use a gluten free broth too. Or purchase a gluten free gravy mix.

Cranberries - Naturally gluten free so depending on how you prep, make sure to use ingredients that are gluten free and have not been cross-contacted with gluten. (e.g. open a new bag of sugar)

Mashed Potatoes – Potatoes are naturally gluten free, so make sure any ingredients you add are gluten free and avoid cross contact (e.g. use new package of butter).

Green Bean Casserole – Green beans are naturally gluten free, so be sure to use a gluten free cream of mushroom soup. Or just go basic - green beans with butter and salt and pepper.

Butternut Squash- Naturally gluten free, so just make sure any ingredients you add are gluten free (spices, etc.) and to avoid cross contact. (e.g. use new package of butter, etc.)

Sweet Potatoes- Naturally gluten free. Depending on how you prepare, make sure your ingredients are gluten free and avoid cross contact with gluten (e.g. use a new butter, brown sugar, etc. )

Corn Bread- Go hassle free and delicious - Use a Corn Muffin Mix (ALF customers have reported these muffins to taste like Boston Market's)

Happy Thanksgiving!
