gluten-free Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving montage

I probably don't need to tell you just how soon Thanksgiving is, right?

Every time this year I see people coming to this site through urgent questions. "how do I make gluten-free stuffing? Is there such a thing as gluten-free pumpkin pie. gluten-free thanksgiving. help!"

Well of course, we're here to help.

Over the past few years, Danny and I have developed recipes for the foods we eat at our Thanksgiving table. In fact, my entire family (and Danny's family one year) eats an entire Thanksgiving dinner without a stitch of gluten. No one misses it. (At least that I know about.) In this house, a gluten-free Thanksgiving is no big deal.

So we'd like to share some of the recipes that will be on our table.

Brussels Sprouts Salad 

Cranberry Cocktail

Dinner Rolls 

How to Make Gluten-Free Gravy

Our Best Gluten-Free Pie Crust

Pumpkin Mash

Roast Turkey for Everyone

Thanksgiving Stuffing

Wild Rice Salad with Chanterelles and Cashew Sour Cream


As well, we'd like to share a few posts with you that we developed to help you flourish through this holiday: 


How to have a gluten-free Thanksgiving

How to cook for someone gluten-free


That last one is for those of you who can eat gluten but are feeding people who cannot.

And on that note, we want to share something spectacular with you....



We're not the only ones who have developed gluten-free recipes for you this year.

A few weeks ago, I asked some of our favorite bloggers and bakers if they would make something gluten-free this year.

As we wrote to these good folks:

"As you know, Thanksgiving (in the US) is quickly approaching. As you might guess, this is a particularly anxious time for gluten-free folks, since the traditional meal is SO starchy and glutenous. Imagine what it might be like to show up at Thanksgiving and not feel welcomed at the table. You watch everyone else eat stuffing and pie and nibble on mashed potatoes and salad, hoping there wasn't any cross-contamination in the cooking.

Everyone here? We cook. We bake. We do this to share the warmth of the kitchen and the table with the people we love. Even the gluten-free folks.

So here's what we're proposing.

Cook or bake something wonderful — mincemeat pie, crusty stuffing, dinner rolls — and make it gluten-free."

Danny and I both have been amazed at the enthusiasm and final dishes that these fine people have made for you. Keep in mind that most of these people can eat gluten.

No one gluten-free needs to go hungry at the Thanksgiving table this year.

Andrea Meyers of Andrea's Recipes made gluten-free pumpkin scones.

Ashley Rodriguez of Not Without Salt made gluten-free chocolate biscotti.

Carrie Vitt of Deliciously Organic made gluten-free pumpkin-banana tart (and tells a story you must read).

Charissa Fleischer of Zest Bakery made warm pumpkin polenta with goat cheese.

Deanna Schneider of The Mommy Bowl made gluten-free bread.

Debra Smith of Smith Bites made gluten-free celery root soup with cashew cream.

Diane and Todd of White on Rice Couple made Turkey Sloppy Joes on Rosemary Rolls.

Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking made gluten-free molasses cookies.

Gudrun of Kitchen Gadget Girl made a gluten-free pumpkin strata.

Heather Flett of Rookie Moms made chocolate peanut butter brownies.

Heena Punwani of Tiffin Tales made glorious gluten-free Thanksgiving torte.

Heidi Kelly of Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom made crescent rolls and cinnamon rolls, gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg free.

Irvin Lin of Eat the Love made Gluten Free Maple Sweet Potato Cheesecake with Gingerbread Bottom and Sour Cream Marshmallow Topping.

Jean Layton of Gluten-Free Doctor Recipes made gluten-free sourdough rosemary rolls and gluten-free mincemeat cookies.

Jeanne of The Art of Gluten-Free Baking made gluten-free pumpkin pie.

Kamran Siddiqi of Sophisticated Gourmet made cranberry-almond-coconut macaroons topped with chocolate.

Karen Schuppert of Cook 4 Seasons made gluten-free pumpkin mousse.

Kim Maes of Cook It Allergy Free made Cornbread and (Shauna's) Crusty Bread Stuffing with Apples, Sausage, Pine Nuts, and... a special ingredient.

Lexie of Lexie's Kitchen made dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, no-bake pumpkin pie filling.

Lori of Recipe Girl made an entire Thanksgiving menu, gluten-free.

Maria Lichty of Two Peas and Their Pod made gluten-free apple cranberry crisp

Melissa McLean Jory of Gluten-Free for Good made gluten-free cherry cobbler

Michelle Stern of What's Cooking with Kids made gluten-free apple crisp.

Molly Birnbaum of My Madeleine made butternut squash soup.

Nancy Kohler of The Sensitive Pantry made gluten-free brown sugar hand pies.

Nikki Gardner of Art and Lemons made gluten-free rustic squash tarts.

Paula Jones of Bellalimento made Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll with Mascarpone and Nutella Filling

Serene of Mom Food Project made an entire Thanksgiving, gluten-free.

Shaina Olmanson of Food for My Family made a gluten-free apple pie cheesecake.

Shirley Braden of Gluten-Free Easily made candy carrot coins.

Silvana Nardone of Dish Towel Diaries made kale caesar slaw.

Tara Barker of A Baking Life made gluten-free gingerbread cake with vanilla-bourbon Bavarian cream and cinnamon-brown sugar caramel.

Tia Hain of Glugle Gluten-Free made gluten-free pumpkin muffins.

Wendy Houndroulis of Wenderly made sweet and savory prosciutto cups.

Just look at the list of recipes. These sound and look and (I'm sure) taste stunning. If anyone you know, including you, is feeling a little down about a gluten-free Thanksgiving this year, just send them this post and tell them to start cooking.

Thank you, all you wonderful people.

* * *

You'd think that would be enough, right?

Not for us.

Danny and I have been so moved by everyone's generosity here, as well as all the generous questions and insights on Twitter and Facebook, that we want to give you more.

So, we are giving away:

3 copies of our cookbook.

a collection of gluten-free flours, including all the flours needed to bake from our cookbook

a care package of spices and ingredients you might need to make some of the recipes in our cookbook.

a collection of useful baking tools, such as a Silpat, jelly roll pans, a peltex spatula, and a tart pan to make the tarts from our cookbook.

and... wait for it:

a Kitchen Aid stand mixer.

There are seven prizes here, in total. And to be honest, Danny and I are paying for these ourselves. We want you to start baking, gluten-free.

Could you spread the word for us? Tell people about this post and our cookbook?


Now, all you have to do to be eligible for the giveaway is this:

-- make something gluten-free for Thanksgiving. It could be something like your favorite mashed potatoes. You could tackle pie dough without wheat. Just make something.

-- write a post about it, with recipe, and share your experience.

-- leave the url of that post in the comments section here. I'll add all the links to this post, eventually, so that we'll have a firestorm of great food for gluten-free folks.

-- or, if you don't have a blog or time to create something this week, just leave a comment here, telling us about your favorite food for Thanksgiving.

Winners will be chosen at random next Monday, November 22nd. I'll announce the winners by midnight.

So, get cooking and baking!


postscript from November 27th

Well, with our trip to Colorado, a two-day power outage covering the entire island, and Thanksgiving, it took me longer to choose these winners, using Random.org, than I had hoped. But here they are!

Megan, who wrote:

GF since August 15th, 2010, life changing experience. It hasn't been easy, but I'm loving cooking. I got Glutened (ate out,and they said it was GF) last Friday, and now so worried about Thanksgiving. Going to my B/F's relatives 6hour flight from home. My B/F is very supportive and plans to take me to the grocery store when we get there, the night before Thanksgiving. I plan to make myself (and others if they want) something I loved and made at home before. I hope the link works. - Sweet and red potatoes, raisins - cranberries, red onions , sea salt, ground pepper, dill

OMG. So amazing! I can't wait to dive in and read all the posts. As always, you and Danny are amazing. Lu too, but you know, that goes without saying.

Yay! I love Thanksgiving! I'm glad now that EVERYONE can love it!!!

Oh wow, what a beautiful sum of GF recipes you're offering us! Thank you!!! (except I'll want to try them all and we don't even celebrate Thanskgiving here in France!)

 
At 3:22 AM, Blogger nifferka said...

This year, I'm thankful for all the great recipes, stories, and ideas you've shared. There are 3 people in my life who live with celiac's, and one of them celebrates Thanksgiving with us every year--and this year, she's pregnant!

But...we are charity workers living in a poor country in Central Asia, so while we make everything from scratch and grind our own flours, we have to do without the miracle of xantham gum (unless some arrives in a care package from home). And as our choice of self-ground flours is limited to white rice, chickpea, buckwheat, corn, lentil, walnut, and apricot pits, we've been very creative. Thank you for all the inspiration you've given us, this year and every year. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for doing this! I have my menu up, and will be including recipes and pics as I go. This is my third completely gluten-free Thanksgiving, but I remember all too well that uncertainty of tackling a traditionally gluten-filled family meal & fearful that it would be dissapointing.

Thanks for doing this! Even though this is my third completely gluten-free Thanksgiving, I remember all too well the intimidation of tackling a traditional Thansgiving that wouldn't dissapoint my family.

Our Thanksgiving was last month, so this is a past blog post. I'm not sure if Bob Red Mill mixes are allowed, but I'd feel bad loading up mom's pantry with a bunch of flours she'd never use! haha

Yesterday I just posted on my blog about the new recipes I had just tried, and then I see this post! Amazing timing!

I had just tried out the spicy molasses cookies you have on your blog, and then I tried out some apple quinoa with date and walnut cookies from another blog. Both were AMAZING successes. My family loved the molasses, so for our first ever GF Thanksgiving, we'll be enjoying my GF apple pie (crust recipe from here!) and the spicy molasses cookes (recipe from here!) I don't know what I'd do without you two!

I love your cookbook, I love your story. I am trying hard to get gluten out of our lives (my son has autism). I have an mommy/autism blog not a cooking blog. I am thankful for many things - my sons, my husband, a roof over our heads. Thank you for your generous giveaway.

 
At 8:41 AM, Blogger Kim Love said...

Brussel sprout salad, yes please! Sounds so simple, so delicious. I can already imagine myself falling in love with this salad. Have you ever eaten a traditional Burmese salad? I almost want to incorporate those flavors with the Brussel sprouts and get real crazy. ;)

 
At 8:41 AM, Blogger Nancy Newcomer said...

Here's my Gluten Free Persimmon Pomegranate Salad for Thanksgiving. The colors are gorgeous & the flavors are fab: sweet & tangy with a spicey kick! It looks lovely on your festive table. After playing around with it, I've found that using Walnut Oil makes it a "stand out" in flavor. Enjoy!

This is my 2nd Thanksgiving gluten free and my first time trying to make something GF I can eat. I'm going to attempt to make GF stuffing in the crock pot using brown rice bread. I wish my family would choose to go GF for the holidays, but they have no interest. My mom is a type 1 diabetic so we are going to have an interesting array of foods for sure!

i wish i had time to make something this week but unfortunately i am working full time and moving this week. i will be dreaming over all of these delicious recipes and planning for my GF Thanksgiving!

my favorite GF Thanksgiving food is homemade dressing. i use the recipe that my grandma has used my whole life and just substitute the bread with either homemade gf bread or even store bought bread. i've had good luck substituting any kind of GF bread and it tastes just like grandma's. i love the combo of sage and poultry seasonings and butter. YUM.

happy Thanksgiving!!! XO

I don't have a blog to post a recipe to. My favorite Thanksgiving food was always stuffing. Finally last year (after 12 years without) I decided to try it. It was good but not great. This year I'll be trying your recipe, which is sure to be better. Thanks for all you do for us.

At 8:47 AM, Blogger laurelvb said...

Holy crow, could you be more generous? I don't think so. Anyway since I don't have a blog I'll just tell you about my favorite food for Thanksgiving. My husband actually came up with this for me last year. Mashed potatoes and gravy. Both the mashed potatoes and gravy are made with "MimicCreme" and he thickens the gravy with either tapioca or potato starch, whichever is in reach. We fed this to the entire family at both Thanksgiving and Christmas and didn't let on. It was all scarfed down with many compliments. That's definitely a win in my book.

 
At 8:49 AM, Blogger Elizabeth said...

I just want to have yummy g/f stuffing. That's all I ask. I can live without everything else or it already is g/f. Thank you for the treasury of recipes to pour through!

 
At 8:51 AM, Blogger Megan C. Sullivan said...

Those are some great recipes.

That being said, Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday because my mom does all the cooking . But in the past year I have taken on the challenge of going Gluten-Free. I am going to work with my mom this Thanksgiving on making some of these recipes. You never know they could become family favorites.

I am a 24 year old college grad that never learned how to cook. But my favorite gluten free meal that I have been making lately is buckwheat pumpkin pancakes. I make them at least once a week.

I am certain your cook books will help me on my journey to living a better and healthy life. Thank you for your inspiration and making it look so easy.

I'm very, very new to gluten-free cooking, which I started doing because of some good friends of mine. You're a big inspiration and teacher for me, when it comes to all things gluten-free. My first go-to resource! Thanks!!

 
At 9:00 AM, Blogger Meg said...

Living in the land of pioneer-women (Laura Ingalls Wilder, Maud Hart Lovelace, Mary Tyler Moore)I live for autumn. The height of harvesting, preparing for winter, and cooking up all the sumptuous foods of fall is in my blood. So last year when I was diagnosed and told no more gluten, I immediately thought of Thanksgiving. How could I survive? Quickly, my husband assured me that mashed potatoes and yams need not be of concern, nor the bird, or the roasted root vegetables. But what about green bean casserole? Stuffing? And the PIE?!?

But thanks to you and the Chef, I pulled it off. You see, I'm from the midwestern stock of family that doesn't kindly take to deviating from tradition. When my older sister heard that the pie crust was "gluten-free" she immediately conjured up this idea that it would be totally inedible.

OOOOOH-EEEE was she surprised! Your pie crust (use this one) recipe fooled everybody!

This year, I'm fearlessly tackling the classics and our entire feast will be gluten-free.

Thank you for everything. Seriously. As a gastronome, I thought my life would be over without gluten. You've helped me and my palette start living again.

 
At 9:02 AM, Blogger Anne said...

Thank you, Shauna. I eat gluten, but my mom doesn't. It was tough for her at first, but now she makes a delicious Thanksgiving, completely gluten-free. You're right--we don't miss it! The pumpkin cheesecake is the best part.

 
At 9:06 AM, Blogger Megan said...

Wow! These recipes are amazing! So many great ones to try- I don't know how I'll ever choose! This is my first GF Thanksgiving and I have been thinking of stuffing for weeks- can't wait to try this recipe, Shauna. My favorite Thanksgiving food would prob be the stuffing- or a close 2nd would be my Mom's mashed potato casserole with sour cream and cream cheese! YUM! Thank you- thank you- thank you!

 
At 9:13 AM, Blogger Karen said...

Wow, you found alot of great recipes! I will have to try some of them out.
We make a stuffing each year using quinoa instead of bread. It is so quick and easy, and instead of finishing thanksgiving with that need to sleep for a year feeling, we walk away from the table actually feeling energetic.
The other dish we have every year with dinner is a spinach,egg,and cheese casserole, a recipe my mom cut out of a magazine in the 70's. We lost the original clipping and have changed it over the years, (we are dairy free too so use Daiya cheese)but it has to be on our thanksgiving table...

At 9:21 AM, Blogger LFP said...

what a mouthwatering selection of recipes/meals! I make a GF/dairy free pumpkin bread every year, I adapted the Joy of Cooking recipe. have been using the GF mix by GF Pantry I found at Whole Foods, plus I sub in some buckwheat to give it more oomph. Use Earthbalance sticks instead of butter, rice milk instead of cows.

And I'm going to use the Whole Foods gluten free piecrust which is delicious & buttery & so not dairy free! for pumpkin pie.

have a great time in Colorado! fingers crossed for a cookbook or something!

After reading some of these posts and realizing that you don't like the taste of fava bean flour either...I'm definitely putting your cookbook at the top of my Christmas wish list! I get so disappointed when I see ads for GF bakery items only to find they have fava bean flour in them. I refuse to eat it and so does my niece.

Thank you for so many amazing recipes for gluten-free eaters. I've sent many people to your blog when they come to me for info on going gluten-free.

You have made me and my 3-yr old celiac niece very, very happy!

GF since August 15th, 2010, life changing experience. It hasn't been easy, but I'm loving cooking. I got Glutened (ate out,and they said it was GF) last Friday, and now so worried about Thanksgiving. Going to my B/F's relatives 6hour flight from home. My B/F is very supportive and plans to take me to the grocery store when we get there, the night before Thanksgiving. I plan to make myself (and others if they want) something I loved and made at home before. I hope the link works. - Sweet and red potatoes, raisins - cranberries, red onions , sea salt, ground pepper, dill

Wow, those recipes look amazing. I'm Canadian, so we celebrated Thanksgiving last month. I don't have a blog at the moment, but I can share my favourite recipe: cranberry sauce.

I'm sure you already know that it's as easy as dumping a bag of cranberries in a saucepan, adding some sugar, and zesting and juicing one orange. I like to add some booze too, but that's just a preference. Then, simmer it until the craberries burst, and it magically gels as it cools! And of course, it's naturally gluten-free (and delicious).

Thanks for the generous contest, and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving! (And, when are you bringing your book tour to Canada? Vancouver isn't that far away from you, no? ;) )

I can eat gluten, but I have a dear friend who cannot, so I am familiar with the challenges that this dietary restriction causes... I'd like to offer up my 70 minute roast turkey recipe. Obviously turkey is easy to cook gluten-free but this one cooks quickly and will leave you with more time to tackle all your gluten-free stuffings, gravies, desserts etc :) You can also make the turkey stock I give a recipe for and simply thicken that with a bit of cornstarch for a good gravy.
Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been g-free for the past four and a half years and can honestly say that this blog has totally changed my attitude toward baking. Before I was g-free, I baked religiously and even took cake decorating classes. After becoming g-free I totally gave up baking and was very bitter about not being able to make my favorite treats. I stumbled upon your website and cannot even explain how excited I am to start my g-free baking journey!

When I get home from college next week I am going to make a coconut cream pie with a homemade pie crust. My mom's favorite. She is also g-free and couldn't be more excited about me wanting to take up baking again. I am also planning on tackling a marbled pumpkin cheesecake.

I can't thank you enough for making fall back in love with baking in time for the holiday season!!!!

Interestingly enough, most of the food at my family's Thanksgiving has always been gluten free, minus the stuffing, rolls, and pie.

My absolute favorite Thanksgiving dish is cranberry sauce WITH gravy on top. I know, sounds weird, right? Wrong. There is just something about the slimey tartness of the jelly with the savory thickness of the gravy that just makes this combination work. It's really not that weird, if you think about it. I mean, Thanksgiving gravy has a way of going over absolutely EVERYTHING on your plate, so it must be meant to be there. Trust me. Try it.

At 3:13 PM, OpenID omgyummy said...

I have a blog but I probably won't have time to recipe test and post something gluten-free so I'm going to leave a couple of ideas as a comment.

Since learning about celiac's disease and the art of cooking gluten-free, I've thought a lot more about what I do cook that is or what would qualify. I suppose it's similar to the effort I've always put in to be certain that a dear friend with severe peanut allergies can always eat comfortably in my home.

A couple of years ago I found a recipe for cranberry surprise muffins -- you make cornbread muffins but put a dollop of cranberry sauce in the center so when you bite into them you get a burst of cranberry. I know there are many gluten-free cornbread recipes to use as well as great traditional or citrus-flavored cranberry sauces that would all marry up. But the best part of this is that it's fun for kids to get involved with. I make them as mini-muffins and my daughter loves to be in charge of putting the mix and cranberry in the mini tins.

The other thought I had this morning came from our dietary issue in our house which is lactose intolerance. One of our favorite cuisines is anything Asian, especially Japanese because there is almost never any dairy involved. One of our favorite treats when my husband travels to the Far East on business is when he brings back mochi (sticky rice desserts) that were fresh made the day he departs. It occurred to me that mochi are most likely gluten-free and after a quick search this morning, it seems that they are generally gluten-free by nature. My thought was to make a pumpkin filling for them or even flavor the rice with pumpkin to make them seasonally appropriate. Unfortunately, I don't have time to experiment, at least not right now. But maybe this will spark some creativity in someone else's kitchen.

I made gluten-free red velvet cupcakes with no food coloring (I used beet powder). Red velvet is not a traditional Thanksgiving dish, but you can't really go wrong with red velvet at any meal!

Just found your site, so I've done nothing to deserve a present, but I'm happy to talk about food anyway. I'm Canadian, so we've done Thanksgiving a month ago already. The meal wasn't particularly gluten-free, but we did do our favourite garlic and parmesan mashed potatoes, a roasted beet and feta salad, the Martha Stewart turkey, and a curried squash soup for starters. It was fabulous. Enjoy yours!

6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 pounds (~1 kilo) frozen spinach, thawed and well drained (or 3 pounds/1.5 kilos fresh spinach, washed, stemmed and finely chopped)
sea salt
fresh ground black pepper
2 cups (480 ml) heavy cream
8 ounces (227 g) sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Preparation
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F/175° C.

3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the spinach and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Saute for 3 or 4 minutes. Add the cream. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cream thickens.
4. Remove from heat and transfer into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle the top with cheese and place in the oven. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is slightly brown and bubbly.

We've been exploring a gluten sensitivity after dh's Crohn's flared up at the end of summer. We started by going grain-free completely, which healed him up nicely, and are still experimenting with gluten, whether he can handle it sprouted, sourdoughed, any way in moderation or not at all.

My grain-free life FAQ post includes at least 6 homemade desserts and snacks that are 100% grain free and delicious: http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2010/10/05/faqs-on-the-grain-free-lifestyle/

Call me crazy, but I really just want the flours and spices to play with your recipes (and the book, of course), even though I'm hoping we can still eat gluten most of the time. We've already decided we'll do at least a once yearly grain/gluten cleanse for a month or so.

Wow -- what a fabulous idea! Although we've done our Thanksgiving last month I'm still baking autumnal GF goodies. tonight I made pumpkin scones using pumpkin that I bought at the farmers market. It's really exciting learning to bake gluten-free; I'm always thrilled when a recipe works out well, and now I'm becoming more confident to play with the ingredients and make changes to a recipe. I can't thank you enough for giving me the confidence, and the knowledge, to make the transition to gluten-free cooking and baking.

I was just diagnosed with a gluten intolerance this past year, so this will be my first Thanksgiving gluten-free. As you mentioned, it can all be a bit overwhelming. I know that our family’s Thanksgiving will not be completely gluten free this year, which means I will basically have to choose my favorite dishes to make ahead of time and bring with us to ensure that I’ll still get a great Thanksgiving meal. But on top of worrying about my gluten intolerance, I’ve also been given the daunting task of making sure these recipes are free of corn, soy and dairy for my sister, who recently found out she had allergies to all of these. (As well as allergies to several key ingredients in Thanksgiving dishes, such as turkey, cranberries and sweet potatoes!)

The best part of Thanksgiving that everyone looks forward to the most each year is my grandmother’s homemade apple pie. Utterly depressed that I wouldn’t be able to have any this year, this past weekend I decided to test my baking skills and convert the recipe to gluten free (No blog as of yet to post the recipe or pictures, but I’m definitely thinking of starting one). It turned out great as far as taste goes, although I would make some alterations to the recipe as the crust didn’t have the texture I was looking for. Perhaps next time I will try out the recipe you posted here!

Just wanted to say thank you for posting all these recipes! It’s been a tremendous help. It’s so great to see such a large selection of gluten-free recipes to choose from!

How fun to see all the ideas. I have a few things on my blog, like a spiced oat pie crust, a brown butter apple pie coming soon. But my favorite is my cranberry cream tart with a chocolate crust - gluten free of course!

I just discovered your site and I'm so excited!!! My daughter recently just got diagnosed with severe allergies so I'm in the learning process of cooking gluten-free. Thanks for all the great recipes for me to try out this Thanksgiving! =)

I love the idea of a communal Thanksgiving :)
I adapted GFE's Crustless Coconut Pie to be dairy free in addition to her gluten free version. I fell in love with this pie at first bite and know that it will be gracing our holiday table for years to come! I shared my adaptation and a photo at http://www.dairyfreediva.com/2010/11/dairy-and-gluten-free-crustless-coconut.html

I make a vegan mushroom gravy using potato flour as the thickener. My daughter's food allergies were fully diagnosed in January so this is our first allergen free thanksgiving. We were vegetarian already but she's allergic to wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg, corn, sesame, oats, grape and melon. Her grandma has perfected a biscuit recipe I adore. We only eat safe food in our house. I have not bought your book because of all our restrictions but enjoy this site.

What a great giveaway! While I am eagerly anticipating making lots of GF goodies for Thanksgiving, I am extremely excited to try out a new GF cornbread stuffing recipe, as well as a GF gingerbread and pumpkin trifle. (The latter being a dish that I feel confident even the most picky non-GF eaters will enjoy...)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

You are amazing people! I love to make rolls and bread and anything to do with baking and I would love to be able to learn how to bake gluten free for the celiacs in my life. My favorite part of Thanksgiving is not any one dish, for me it is being able to cook all day and make good food to share. I am going to be away from home for the first time this year, and don't know how much cooking I will get to do, but I will be with friends.

 
At 9:48 PM, Blogger Miracle said...

Wow - my husband & I were just complaining how expensive the flours are. What an amazing chance. I plan on making a gluten free stuffing this year for thanksgiving. My idea is to bake a few loaves of gf bread, and add many delicious veggies/herbs to it such as celery, onion, carrots,sage, roasted butternut squash, roasted parsnips, and other roasted veggies. I can't wait to try my first gluten free stuffing. Thanks again for the chance to win GF prizes! :)

You are a lifesaver!! I am a recent GF-er and I am challenged all the time with what to make. I have been so worried about this Thanksgiving, but I worry no more!! I won't be able to do much cooking this year because of travel, but I'll be keeping this post in my head for a future resource. My all time favorite two dishes (because I can't pick one) are chocolate meringue pie and classic dressing. And roasted brussel sprouts, yum yum! Here's my link to my blog where I reposted.

I don't have a blog, but I read yours religiously, and I want to say thank you for this Thanksgiving round up! It is so great to have a sense of solidarity on a holiday that can be very isolating for people eating gluten free.

My favorite thanksgiving dish is called corn bake, which is a corn casserole made with corn bread mix, creamed corn, green pepper, onion, sour cream and cheddar cheese. It is SO good. This year it will be made with Bob's Red Mill GF mix instead of our usual Jiffy, of course!

Thank you for the generous giveaway.

Awesome roundup of recipes! I'm so excited to read through them! I haven't had time to make anything new the last few weeks, but posted about a couple of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes on my blog. I plan on making the same thing I did last year -- if it ain't broke, don't fix it right? And I sure didn't feel deprived at my Thanksgiving feast :)

Thank you for all your support to our community, as well as such a fun giveaway! I'm so anxious to get my hands on your latest book!!!

Ever since my parents divorced, my mother and I have "taken back" Thanksgiving. To us, this means freedom! We deliberately don't cook traditional thanksgiving food, because we don't usually enjoy it and on a day when we give thanks for what we have, my mom always felt pressured to live up to her family's expectations. Now she and I spend much needed together time cooking up a storm, experimenting, chatting, and making delicious food for our family. We've experimented with fish, roast beef, and a number of different side dishes. My sisters join in now that they're older, my sister, who also is GF, is learning to make the most delicious pies, things that even her teenage girlfriends who can eat wheat gobble up. I don't know what we'll be cooking this year, though I'm sure we'll reference this wonderful blog for inspiration, but I know we'll be indulging in our sense of freedom to eat splendidly, something that us gluten free folks should feel more often.

This is my 3rd GFCF Thanksgiving. For the most part, each year's been a success. However, I am still looking for a decent roll / biscuit recipe (last year's tasted like metal. Old metal, at that!) ... I think the rosemary rolls may be the winner!

Thanks for your lovely blog, and the continued inspiration.

My ten year old son was just diagnosed with celiac a few weeks ago. He had no symptoms, he just wasn't growing very fast.
I have always been a pretty big baker but this change has been a bit overwhelming. I am so grateful to you and all of the other adventurous cooks who have taken the time and learned about baking and cooking this way and then have shared it with the world.
Thanksgiving was never a big deal for him, a picky-eating vegetarian (yikes!) but he loves the apple pie and rolls and muffins...so I will be making all of his favorites gluten free and hoping he'll try some of the veggies. Thank you!

Pick a favorite thanksgiving food? That's like picking a favorite child! I can't live without mashed potatoes, and this year we will be having them with gluten free gravy. I'm making Shauna's gluten free dinner rolls, and a gluten free cornbread stuffing. My husband has a gluten sensitivity and I don't want him sneezing and sniffling all evening!

This year I am in charge of cooking the entire Thanksgiving feast for my family for the first time...and I went gluten free a few months ago (I could not have gotten through without you guys!). So, I am totally terrified and thrilled at the same time to be making our very first GF Thanksgiving feast! So...I will definitely be posting after I make everything~

And in the meantime...favorite dish? Sweet Potato Casserole...hands down. And already gluten free!!! :)

What a great post...wish I had some of these recipes before our Thanksgiving last month. That being said, I am intrigued by your brussels sprout salad and will be making it shortly.

This was my first Thanksgiving being gluten free and I was afraid of not being able to eat stuffing and pumpkin pie. We were lucky enough to have great stuffing by just tweaking my Mom's recipe. And the pumpkin pie...well that became a pumpkin cheese cake with a gluten free gingersnap crust...YUM!

Thanks again for all your great recipes. Cheers!

Being Canadian, we had our thanksgiving last month, but what we make INSTEAD of stuffing is a garlic bread FREE of all my daughters allergens (gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, nuts, red meat, pork, chicken, msg, gmo, all additives, perservatives, chemicals and pesticides, nitrates....to name a FEW!) That went for the whole meal. Anyways, I made allergen friendly garlic bread. You slice the bread THICK or if your using thin pre sliced bread, I advise dipping in the sauce instead! Shred the garlic really really finely, add to a pot of olive oil...however much you need for however many your feeding. Toast the bread lightly under the broiler...dont use a toaster...on both sides, remove and add the garlic and olive oil mix, that should be just heated till the garlic is warm. Then spoon it lightly onto your bread, or pour into individual serve bowls to dip at the table! Dont heat the olive oil too much, just enough to warm it slightly!! I usually do about 1 clove of garlic per slice of bread, if its thick sliced....1/2 if your using thin sliced! So yummy!!! My family doesnt miss stuffing one bit! They prefer this!!!

Great recipes, it makes me want to stay all day in my kitchen.
I actually just mastered gluten free, egg free, soy free, sugar free (just a dollop of molasses)waffles. Only problem, I cannot remember the quantities..... I used cream of rice, rice flour, soy free margarine, rice milk, stevia, molasses, rice protein, baking powder and orange blossom extract.
It was yummy!

I'm making apple pie with your gluten free pie crust (which is delicious) and I made a practice one last weekend. It tasted fantastic... Although the top crust looked a bit like something from a tim Burton Halloween movie, it still tasted great!! I also got a lot of compliments from my friends that generously offered to be guinea pigs :)

I am so excited about Thanksgiving this year. It'll be my 3rd gluten-free Thanksgiving, and I think everyone around the house is well-used to my restrictions. To celebrate, I'm planning on bringing two dishes: sausage, apple, and cranberry stuffing and creamy garlic mashed potatoes. I may have to experiment with pie, too, as that's always something I want but can't have. Maybe chocolate pecan... :)

I am so thankful to have found your website! I immediately made my boyfriend run to the store with me to pick up a copy of your book. I love it!

My favorite thanksgiving gluten free recipe is "New and Improved Gluten Free New Jersey Pizza" New Jersey pizza is not pizza at all, actually. When my sister was younger my Nana made this amazing mashed squash casserole with lots of yummy cinnamon and sugar. She thought it she told my sister it was squash she wouldn't eat it, so she told her it was "New Jersey Pizza" (they live there and we live in California). Ever since then we have had it every year and still call it NJP despite knowing it is squash :) However, it was originally thickened with flour and when I was diagnosed I thought I had to say goodbye to a childhood favorite. My mom was determined to make it work so now we thicken it with all purpose gluten free flour.! Happy Thanksgiving!

Not really good at this gluten free stuff yet, nevermind coming up with my own recipes....but I'd just LOVE it if someone could recreate the green bean casserole....I tried last year, substituting crushed sour cream and onion potato chips for the french fried onions, but it was still missing 'something', so any advice is greatly appreciated and yes I could certainly use your cookbook because I use a lot of your recipes! and my kitchenaid 20 year old mixer just broke, so please have pity on me and put me into the drawing!!!

This is my first major holiday being Gluten free... I have to say I am extremely nervous and thankful for understanding family and friends as I make this transition. I will be making gluten free mashed potatoes with homemade stock and green bean casserole. I have yet to get the gluten free baking down but I am not in a huge rush. I will be making a pumpkin creme brulee since that is gluten free.

Oh My! You are generous!

So, I have always fancied myself a baker... When my husband said now wheat, I made it work! But then he said that he actually need gluten free... Well, I started with mixes... And I have progressed. I love making pies. Pumpkin pie, with real pumpkin, and of course, real crust. And this year, gluten free, not a mix. (So far, my attempts have been crumbly, but I'm getting there...)
Thanks!

Oh my goodness, this is so wonderful and generous of you guys to host this giveaway! We have recently realized we need to start living gluten-free, and I cried when I saw the cost of the flours and things required for baking.

This year, I'm grateful to finally be aware of what my body does and does not need to function properly. Ü

My favorite Thanksgiving food has always been pumpkin pie. Last year was the first year I was gluten free and I was heartbroken thinking that I wouldn't have any. My partner had other plans though and made the most AMAZING pumpkin pie with a pecan crust that I didn't even miss old pumpkin pie. Actually I preferred the new and improved recipe.

I've been gluten free a little over 5 years now. It's a constant learning experience and I love that people like you are making it easier and more approachable to the everyday cook. I am an experienced cook that can't get a job because all the restaurants are filled with gluten... so I recently started my own gluten free blog as well. I would love for you to check it out.
