Tips for a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving and Safe Holiday Season

Celiac.com 10/25/2008 - With a bit of planning and knowledge anyone with celiac disease can enjoy a safe, gluten-free Thanksgiving and holiday season without the concern of accidental gluten ingestion.  If you plan to prepare your own gluten-free turkey dinner, here are some ideas that may be helpful:

  • Don’t risk gluten-based stuffing in your turkey.  Instead, try my favorite gluten-free stuffing recipe.
  • Gravy is easy: Use a gluten-free gravy mix, or a gluten-free gravy recipe.  Remember, bouillon cubes can often be a source of hidden gluten in holiday meals so be sure to use gluten-free bouillon cubes.  To thicken your homemade gravy you can use corn starch or arrowroot flour.
  • Gluten-free holiday side dishes are easy: Browse our extensive listing of gluten-free recipes to find side dishes that will impress anyone—celiac disease or not.
