How to Top Your Turkey’s Best Allergy Free Side Dishes
Thanksgiving is just days away. The turkey is on order. Being allergy sensitive, you’ve already found a suitable gluten free/grain based stuffing. Now, you’re ready to add some side dishes to the menu. To get you started, we thought you’d appreciate having a few tried and true favorites for those loved ones dealing with special dietary restrictions.
Creamy Garlic Dairy Free Mashed Potatoes by Brooklyn Farm Girl (gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, soy-free, corn-free. This version uses vegetable broth instead of chicken so it’s also vegan friendly.)
Guilt-Free Garlic Mashed Potatoes by VegNews. (gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, soy-free, corn-free, vegan) This version sneaks in a cup of red lentils
Mushroom Gravy by the Splendid Table (gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, omit soy sauce for soy-free, sub arrowroot powder for cornstarch for corn-free, vegan). This gravy offers a delish combination of seasonal spices, mushrooms and vegetable stock as the liquid base. Personally, I prefer to use a turkey stock that originates from the turkey.
Maple Orange Masshed Sweet Potatoes by Hummusapien (gluten-free, sub vegan butter to make dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, soy-free, corn-free) Great traditional side dish that is sweetened with pure maple syrup and fresh orange juice.
Dairy-Free Sweet Potato Casserole by GoDairyFree ( dairy-free, non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan, vegetarian) This dish is topped with this 8 allergen-free rice crisp.
Maple Roasted Butternut Squash and Beets from the Roasted Root Another choice with my favorite sweeter of pure maple syrup.
Cranberry and Orange Glazed Green Beans by Cupcakes and Kale Chips. (gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, soy-free, corn-free, vegan). This tart, cranberry with a touch of orange marmalade, flavored version is a welcome departure from the heavy, creamy casserole variations. It will definitely be on my table this week.
Maple Glazed Carrots with Bacon by Confessions of an Overworked Mom (gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, soy-free, corn-free). This one has maple syrup (yes, it’s a continuing theme) and bacon. It’s such an easy dish to whip up.
