My Favorite Gluten Free Thanksgiving Recipes

Over the next week and a half I'll be sharing some of my best Thanksgiving recipes. I have some new vegetarian versions of my old favorites coming along... as well as some new holiday menus... I look forward to hearing your comments and questions as we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas this year!

I challenge you to make your recipes healthier this holiday season. While it is a special season with lots of wonderful foods to choose from, I don't think the season has to be unhealthy.

I've followed a mostly vegan diet the past 3 months and I feel so much better. While I haven't lost the weight I was hoping for, my body just feels healthy and happy. I'd like to keep it that way, especially over the holidays!

The holidays are definitely not the time to feel lousy! So let's eat well and enjoy it!

  • Easy Gluten Free Cream Soup -- THE recipe for perfect gravy, cream soup, base for casseroles such as green bean casserole, etc... need cream soup, gravy, or a base for mac & cheese... this is it!

What's your best gluten free Thanksgiving Recipe?

  1. I can't participate, but wow, what a list! I'm so impressed by your ability to stick to your decisions. (And I can never lose weight by changing my diet. I have to exercise, exercise, exercise. And I hate it. Ha.)

  2. My favorite GF recipe is for Stuffing with Pancetta Sage Sausage. www.thewholegang.org check it today.

    I shared it as part of the Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dinner Party. It's a virtual event with 8 bloggers sharing their recipes. I hope you'll check out all their good food too.

  3. Just love your site: the recipes, the tips, and even your struggles with weight (so like mine!).
    I made a Gluten-free pumpkin cheesecake this year, adapted from a recipe I clipped from Better Homes & Gardens magazine ... used gluten-free ginger snaps for the crust, and all purpose gluten-free flour in the filling.

    I also made a great corn casserole with yellow rice, corn & pepper jack cheese - omitted the cream of mushroom soup the recipe called for and added hemp milk until the consistency suited me.
