Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes
Rosemary Maple Glazed Turkey Breast
What’s a Thanksgiving meal without a turkey?! If your turkey needs a little more flavor, try this turkey glaze recipe from $5 Dinners. Made with flavorful real foods, it’s sure to kick your turkey up a notch!
Gluten Free Stuffing
Wild Rice Stuffing
Have you ever tried using wild rice instead of bread for stuffing? This recipe sounds great as a gluten free stuffing alternative to those traditional bread stuffings. The Wild Rice Stuffing can be found at Super Healthy Kids.

Gluten Free Side Dishes
Roasted Apple-Butternut Squash with Maple Cardamom Glaze
Fall is a great time to try different types of squash! This Butternut Squash dish from Mom Foodie looks yummy and easy to make.
Roasted Acorn Squash with Dates, Pumpkin Seeds, and Goat Cheese
This looked interesting and like something I typically wouldn’t eat. However, I’ve been eating more squash this year, so this sounds like a compelling dish. Check it out at Deliciously Organic
Gluten Free Potatoes
Garlic and Herb Mashed Cauliflower
This recipe goes even further than being just gluten free. If you follow an Autoimmune Paleo diet, white potatoes are out. Cauliflower is a great, healthy option to use instead. This mashed cauliflower recipe from Primal Palate is a great substitute for white potatoes!
There are many recipes for sweet potatoes; however, many have marshmallow toppings. Since marshmallows are not the healthiest of “processed” foods, I would opt for baking the sweet potatoes and topping them with coconut oil and cinnamon as this Healthy Holiday Ingredient Swap suggests.
Gluten Free Fruit and Vegetables
Candied Brussel Sprouts
This is a dish that you can get even the pickiest of eaters to try while disguising something healthy in it. Try these candied brussel sprouts from Shelby at Fit as a Mama Bear and see how quickly they are devoured.
Healthy Green Bean Casserole
Green bean casserole is a traditional Thanksgiving dish, but the typical green bean casserole is usually filled with fried onions and processed cans of creamed soups. Try the Wellness Mama’s healthy version of green bean casserole instead.
In addition to this recipe, here are 24 more recipe options for gluten free green bean casserole!
Melissa at My Whole Food Life has a yummy applesauce recipe that’s made in the crock pot. Imagine the smell of it cooking all day long!
Gluten & Dairy Free Dinner Rolls
Megan at Allergy Free Alaska always has great gluten free recipes. This recipe is for some gluten free dinner rolls, and as she mentions, you can make different varieties, whatever you’re guests would like.
Gluten Free Thanksgiving Desserts
I love cheesecake! And who doesn’t like more pumpkin at Thanksgiving?! This dessert uses a pecan crust which is great for those of us who eat gluten free. Try this Pumpkin Cheesecake from Lisa at 100 Days of Real Food.
Crustless Gluten Free Cranberry Pie
Take advantage of the healthy benefits of cranberries with this pie recipe from Dr. Eric Z. This gluten-free recipe (which is actually more like a gooey cake) seems like it would go great with that pumpkin cheesecake!
Amazing Gluten Free Apple Pie
Megan at Allergy Free Alaska is always sharing great recipes! This Gluten Free Vegan Apple Pie looks like a perfect ending to a great Thanksgiving dinner!
