Thanksgiving: Gluten Free Style!

Thanksgiving Gluten FreeSo, Canadian Thanksgiving just happened this past weekend. Even though we’re in Chicago, Ian and I celebrated by roasting a chicken, mashing potatoes, and preparing a large batch of stuffing: all free from gluten of course!

This was my first Thanksgiving being diagnosed as celiac, and I was unsure if I’d be able to find a good stuffing option (because it’s obviously one of the best parts of Thanksgiving dinner, am I right?!).

Luckily, Ian found a savory, awesome recipe online that we carefully recreated in our kitchen. It honestly made the apartment smell amazing!

We also prepared gluten free gravy and mashed potatoes with a twist. I added in a bit of low fat sour cream, a hint of cheese, and a handful of green onions to mix up this old favorite.

After a few hours of cooking, the chicken was finally ready to eat. Although miles away from our family back in Canada, we enjoyed a lovely, festive Thanksgiving together.
