I love Thanksgiving food – the sides, the desserts – there are so many great flavors on the Thanksgiving table. I thought maybe you could use a little inspiration, so I’ve compiled this list of gluten free and vegan Thanksgiving recipes.
Just because you or your guests have special dietary needs, that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on flavor and variety at holiday meals.
There are many ways to make gluten free and dairy free versions of your favorite Thanksgiving recipes – from stuffing, to mashed potatoes, to green bean casserole. Using dairy substitutes makes it easy to modify recipes like gravy or creamed spinach.
If you have a favorite stuffing recipe, one way to modify it may be to use a gluten free and vegan bread, like Schar brand, or B Free. You could also substitute vegetable broth for turkey broth.
Take your time planning your menu, and be creative! There are many ways to have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal that is safe for everyone at your table.
Use my printable Thanksgiving planner to keep yourself organized for the big day.
