Gluten Free Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

rice dish

Eating gluten free, or hosting a gluten free guest at your Thanksgiving dinner this year, does not mean you need to sacrifice flavor! Whether you are comfortable cooking gluten free or trying to accommodate someone else, these side dish recipes are all winners in my book.

If YOU are following a gluten free diet for one reason or another and are attending Thanksgiving dinner somewhere else, consider making one or two of these side dishes to bring with you. That way you’ll know there are at least a few options that are ‘safe’ for you to eat – and you can also introduce another dinner guest to gluten free food options.

I chose a wide variety of side dish options to choose from – vegetables, rich and hearty, and savory. Please let us know your favorites in the comments!
