Recipes: Gluten-Free Thanksgiving

Celiac disease is on the rise in the U.S.—up to four times more common today than it was 50 years ago. An autoimmune response triggered by a sensitivity to gluten protein (found in wheat, rye, barley and many packaged foods), celiac disease can be crippling. It can also make holidays like Thanksgiving difficult, as seemingly everything on the table—from gravy to pumpkin pie—contains flour, and therefore gluten.

But with the rise of celiac disease comes a rise in awareness, and subsequently an increase in products and recipes to make gluten-free cooking and baking easier and tastier.

All around the web we found stories and recipes for gluten-free Thanksgiving foods, including that holy grail of Turkey Day traditions: pie.

Here’s a quick round-up: In “A Gluten Free Thanksgiving,” food writer Stephanie Stiavetti recounts the story of her first Thanksgiving as a gluten-sensitive gal, and shares recipes (and photos) of jalapeno cornbread, stuffing, and butternut squash pie—all gluten free. The Times‘ Well blog talks to baker and food editor Silvana Nardone, whose son was diagnosed with gluten intolerance three weeks before Thanksgiving. Check out her recipes for gluten-free pumpkin dumplings, apple-pecan cornbread stuffing, and pumpkin muffins with crumble topping.
