Gluten free side dishes

funyunsWhat’s Thanksgiving without side-dishes? Just plain ol’ turnkey dinner, right? Fortunately, lots of side dishes are naturally gluten free, like mashed potatoes and most sweet potato recipes, and either canned or fresh cranberry sauce. Sadly, it’s our old favorites that are gluten-FULL. Read on for some GF tweaks to these classic recipes.

Green Bean Casserole

Don’t panic! You can still have your Green Bean Casserole, just substitute the cream of mushroom soup for this recipe from The Gluten Free Cooking School, or try Progresso’s Cream of Mushroom soup. Don’t use the usual French fried onions on top (they have gluten), but try Funyuns Onion Flavored Rings by Frito Lay. Yes, Funyuns, that very same snack you probably skip over in the chip aisle is gluten free and makes a great, crunchy topping.

Gravy

Don’t even think about opening up a GF gravy packet. According to Shauna James Ahern, Queen of Gluten Free blogging, in her absurdly awesome blog Gluten Free Girl, “it is absurdly easy to make gluten free gravy.” Try her recipe here.

Cranberries

For something new and exciting, try fellow Examiner Jen Cafferty’s Quinoa with Cranberries and Toasted pecans .

Rolls

Check out A Gluten Free Guide’s take on dinner rolls using Chebe bread mix. Super easy and it got rave reviews!

Next time we’re tackling pies, so get your rolling pins fired up!
