Sharing is the spirit of Thanksgiving, and that means making delicious dishes everyone can enjoy. Luckily, it’s never been easier to prepare gluten-free recipes for every course of your feast– with hearty fall flavors in the spotlight, these favorites are sure to please everyone at the table.
|Grilled Figs with Prosciutto and Gorgonzola|
This easy-to-assemble starter features salty prosciutto, assertive gorgonzola cheese and fresh figs, with a drizzle of tart-sweet balsamic vinegar.
|Endive Salad with Persimmon and Pomegranate|
Two colorful fall fruits create a beautiful presentation for this salad, which is balanced by pleasantly bitter endive leaves.
|Curried Butternut Squash Soup|
Roasting intensifies the flavors of squash, apples and leeks, giving this soup a rich character that is highlighted by Japanese curry.
|Herb-Butter Roast Turkey|
Happily, the star of the Thanksgiving meal is naturally free of gluten. This turkey gets a double dose of flavor: first it’s soaked in a seasoned saltwater brine, then the bird is brushed with an herb butter as it roasts.
|Gluten-Free Spoon Bread with Guanciale|
This hearty side is made with Blackberry Farm’s Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix. Michael Sullivan, the butcher at farm, adds guanciale, an unsmoked Italian bacon made from the pig’s jowl, to the batter before baking, although thick-cut bacon is a great stand-in.
|Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Sherry-Dijon Vinaigrette|
This dish offers a wonderful contrast of flavors: sweet caramelized brussels sprouts, tart green apples and salty bacon, all tossed with a tangy vinaigrette.
|Cranberry Compote with Riesling and Pears|
This delicious twist on cranberry relish includes fresh pears, Riesling and warm spices. It is more tart than sweet, though you can use a sweeter Riesling or add more brown sugar if you like.
|Pumpkin Crème Brûlée|
Forget the pie — this autumnal dessert is rich and creamy, with warm spices and plenty of pumpkin flavor.
