The holiday season can be a very divisive time among family. Whether it's differing political views or disagreements over family matters, it's easy to find things to argue about with your loved ones on Thanksgiving. But one thing you shouldn't have to compromise on is the food. Everyone should be able to enjoy the festive feast that typically accompanies this holiday, regardless of dietary restrictions. But unfortunately, not everything on the table is usually gluten-free. If you're gluten-free, you shouldn't have to give up stuffing on Thanksgiving because of your diet, and luckily, you don't have to. There are plenty of gluten-free dishes to make for Thanksgiving.
Even if you're not gluten-free, bringing food that lacks gluten to the holiday feast is a simple way of being accommodating of other people's needs. And if you're a vegetarian or vegan as well, you'll be happy to know that many of these recipes don't have meat or other animal products in them. So if you need a recipe that allows you to stuff your mouth with stuffing that passes your dietary tests or you just want to be a good host to your cousin who's gluten-free, these 15 gluten-free recipes are perfect additions to your Thanksgiving dinner.
