This will be my first gluten free Thanksgiving, since being diagnosed, “Gluten Intolerant” back in March of this year. What is a Wife and Mom to do for the bounty of food I will have to make for Thanksgiving??? Yikes! I have been on the Internet searching for some easy to follow GF recipes based off some product that I already have in my Pantry like, Pamela’s Gluten free Bread mix, and Mama’s Coconut Flour Mix. Plus, I am also Lactose Intolerant, and it is nice to know that I can use Almond Milk for a great way to thicken cream based soups like cream of mushroom instead of heavy cream. Here it is, my Thanksgiving Compiled Link List. I also included some links on tips for Freezing methods to help you have a more relaxed Gluten Free Thanksgiving by Freezing some of these goodies ahead of time!
Gluten Free Gravy
1. Green Bean Casserole (I will use dairy free Almond Milk!!)
Or…Use this Cream of Broccoli soup, and substitute broccoli with mushrooms, Plus learn how to make easy chicken stock!
Gluten free Pie Crust
2. Gluten Free Crust
3. Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie Using Almond Breeze
Since all I have right now in my cupboard is Pamela’s Bread flour mix, I would assume that if I just add the 1t. baking soda to the 1lb loaf mix, since it does not list that as an ingredient, and then just follow the rest of the instructions….it should come out as a dinner roll, right? I will let you all know how it works, but it should!
(Update: Nov. 21,2013 Pamela’s Bread Flour did NOT work. It was too think, and a bit tasteless. Here is the Video to make your own flour blend: http://youtu.be/EGsUBr1FISc
To Help make it a easy Gluten Free Thanksgiving, try freezing ahead of time your Gravy, Green Bean Casserole without your the fried onions, chicken stock, Stuffing and even your dinner rolls!! Here are some great techniques to do that!
Happy Thanksgiving You all, and always Happy Sewing!!
