As an adult, Thanksgiving has taken on even more special meaning–my younger son was born on Thanksgiving Day–while we were living overseas in Japan. Well, the year he was born, Thanksgiving fell on his birthday. Although we no longer have big Thanksgiving get-togethers,Thanksgiving still holds a special place in my heart. However, with a recent Hashimoto’s flare up, I need to be mindful of what I put on my plate. That starts with cleaning up my act and going gluten-free. 

Since I’m not a food blogger, I reached out to the food blogging community in search of their favorite gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes. I hope you have a stress-free holiday despite these unusual times! I’ve organized these gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes by category.

Thanksgiving time brings back happy memories of my mom driving us from eastern Long Island to eastern Pennsylvania to spend time with my cousins. My aunt and my mom would pull together a delicious meal while my sister and I played with our cousins. One of my mom’s signature side dishes was cream of onions–those small, pearl onions as well as mashed turnips and homemade red cabbage. I might have been one of the rare kids to have actually enjoyed eating vegetables since my mom constantly exposed us to different recipes! I hope you and your family enjoy these gluten-free recipes!
