18 gluten-free Thanksgiving side dishes:

I wanted to compile all of my favorite gluten-free side dishes to make it easier to plan out your holiday menu. Because lets be honest, Thanksgiving is all about the side dishes.


These two stuffing options are both equally delicious. I made the cauliflower rice stuffing for anyone who is currently doing a Whole30. And for the one’s who are gluten-free, grain-free, paleo this grain-free stuffing is the one for you.

Meal prep ahead of time:

I like to prep as much as I can a few days prior to Thanksgiving. So, I first start off by chopping up all the vegetables I will need for my dishes. I will measure everything out, add everything to the dishes I plan on cooking them in, and store in the refrigerator. Because this leaves less dishes needing to be washed. Then the day of I add seasonings, dressings, oils, etc. and cook.

I hope this helps make planning your menu’s easier this Thanksgiving. And I can’t wait to see your creations over on Instagram.
