Happy Monday, everyone!
Okay, I know normally no one ever says that, because people don’t usually look forward to Mondays.
But this one is different… because it’s Christmas week! I’m sure most of you already have off, and are polishing off last minute shopping and getting your kitchen ready for some serious holiday cooking and baking.
And of course, that includes you gluten-free families out there too! There are a lot of fantastic recipe resources out there from seasoned gluten-free cooks and bloggers… but if you’re new to the gluten-free lifestyle, you might not have your arsenal of gluten-free Christmas recipes completely prepared yet. Or you may have so many to choose from that you’re not sure what to start with.
I’ve been putting my own gluten-free Christmas menu together, and this is what I’ve come up with for my family feast this year. So if you still need a few gluten-free Christmas recipe ideas, feel free to browse this list and pick out what you like!
Spiced Roast Beef With Red Wine Gravy
Roast beef is a definite Christmas dinner favorite of mine. Both the marinade and the gravy are gluten-free, so dig in!
Most of my family members don’t eat pork, so this isn’t generally something I get to enjoy during the holidays. This recipe doesn’t use any flour in their glaze, so it’s safe for celiacs. But if you’re part of a pork-friendly family, then this is right up your alley. This recipe doesn’t use any flour in the glaze, so it’s safe for Celiacs. Looks delish!
Celery Root Mash
Okay, so mashed potatoes aren’t really something that gluten-free foodies have to avoid. But this recipe just looks so fascinating that I just had to share it. A great side dish to try if you’re trying to go grain-free!
Spaghetti Squash Gratin With Chorizo and Kale
Don’t worry… I know the recipe says “spaghetti”, but it’s gluten-free. If you’ve never heard of spaghetti squash, you can check it out here, but that’s the main ingredient of this super-nutritious, gluten-free side.
There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked biscuits with butter, especially mixed with the other heavenly aromas of Christmas dinner. These gluten-free biscuits are just the thing to grace your dinner table at Christmas time.
Rustic Salad Dressing
This salad dressing is gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free, so it’s perfect for families with multiple allergies.
Finding a good gluten-free stuffing recipe can be tricky sometimes. But this recipe is made with apple, sweet potato and hazelnut, which makes for a really great medley if you’re roasting a turkey for your Christmas feast.
Coconut Cream Roulade
Doesn’t this look absolutely delicious? Even the name makes my mouth water. This isn’t what I’d call a quick and easy recipe, but if you’re up for it I think this would definitely be worth the work.
This fudge looks so festive and creamy, it automatically makes me think of Candy Land and gingerbread houses and Winter Wonderland. It’s gluten-free, and you can make a bunch to give out to friends and family or serve after Christmas dinner!
Maple Pecan Tart
I’m a big fan of pecan pie, and I love nearly anything that has maple syrup in it, so I had to snag this recipe. It’s also fairly simple to make, which is a big plus.
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! And if you do end up using any of these gluten-free Christmas recipes, please let us know how they turned out!
