Thanksgiving can be a challenging time. In a few weeks, you'll find yourself elbow deep in relatives, trapped in your fancy-pants clothes, and having a staring contest with a potential fourth piece of pumpkin pie. It's a delicious holiday, but it's not the easiest. Making it all the more difficult is the weighty task of navigating a table full of food, half of which you cannot eat. And, for those with gluten allergies or sensitivities, Thanksgiving can be an absolute minefield.
Luckily, there are some fantastic alternatives out there. With the expansion of gluten-free diets in the past few years, chefs and home cooks alike have developed some innovative recipes that get around the gluten without feeling like a meal made of "substitutes." With fall comes some great seasonal produce that perfectly complements this dietary issue and the Thanksgiving theme. We rounded up some of our favorite recipes on the web that anyone would be thrilled to dig into. Whether you're looking for a savory side, indulgent dessert, or a perfectly roasted turkey (oh, yes, we found THE one), we've got you covered. Click through, and dig in.
