A Gluten and Dairy-Free Thanksgiving

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all are having a wonderful week so far! Is it just me, or does this week feel like it’s dragging on? I think we are all excited for some time off next week! I’ve always loved Thanksgiving but I’m pretty much all about any holiday that allows me to spend time with my family… they really are that amazing. This year though, I’m presented with a slight challenge in that I’m now gluten and dairy free. So those mashed potatoes and corn casserole of years past that are full of cream and butter will be no more! Luckily, I have an incredibly supportive family and everyone is jumping on board to create a Thanksgiving meal that will be just as delicious. I’ve been collecting recipes from countless blogs and Pinterest pins and here are some of the sides I’m considering… because let’s face it, Thanksgiving is ALL about the side dishes in my book.

I have to admit that I’ve been on a pinning spree of pumpkin and squash dishes lately but I’m trying to narrow it down for Thanksgiving. As my mom pointed out, not everything needs to be pumpkin. Oh well! I can’t wait to make these all and fill you in on how they go. To see some of the other items I’m considering check out my Pinterest. Oh and if you can eat dairy and gluten you should really make the stuff on my Food/Entertaining board- so much deliciousness!


-What are your favorite Thanksgiving foods?

  1. YES! This week is SO SLOW. I’m pretty sure I have felt (and said, maybe even screamed) how happy I am it’s Friday … but it’s only Thursday. Ekk.

    Mashed potatoes are my FAVE Thanksgiving dish. Love ’em!! But that pumpkin soup … yea, I need some!

  2. I have never liked Thanksgiving food (even when I wasn’t vegan many years ago), so the food thing has never been an issue for me. My mom used to make me spaghetti or pizza, haha. I will say, I’ve been wanting to try to make vegan mashed potatoes. Just looks too darn good. Good luck lady!

  3. Oh my goodness, I’m drooling! I probably shouldn’t have read this post before hitting the store for the BIG shop, because now I want to add these recipes to our already way-too-long list! 😉 The vanilla bean honey butter sweet potatoes sound AMAZING, and so does that pumpkin soup. I can totally relate to the winter squash obsession; half of the recipes I suggested to my mom contained either butternut squash, pumpkin, carrots, kabocha squash or sweet potatoes. She looked at me and said, “Sara, we’ll all turn orange five bites into dinner!” Let’s just say that only a few of my suggestions were accepted.;) That’s okay though; there are plenty of winter months ahead to make the others!

    My favorite Thanksgiving foods: sweet potato anything (however, I’m not a huge fan of marshmallows on top–those are saved for dessert), roasted Brussels sprouts, and my Grammy’s homemade rolls (although I can no longer eat them…but they’re out-of-this-world delicious).

    Happy early Thanksgiving! ❤ xoxo
