(Hey guys, this is me coming out as gluten-free. My stomach feels a lot better now. I miss bread. Anyway.)

Let's talk about gluten-free Thanksgiving dishes! I need an entree and a dessert and I need them to be awesome. There is a loaf on the Fat Free Vegan blog that I was considering...any other suggestions?

Welcome to the club! Last year was my first gluten-free Thanksgiving. I made this chickpea pot pie and it was great:

You can use whichever vegetables you like, and it freezes well, too. I made a stuffing out of wild rice, leeks, apples, and pecans instead of bread cubes:

For dessert, I made a pecan pie and used Namaste brand gluten-free pie crust mix. It was a little more crumbly than a gluten crust, but it tasted good.

Other ideas for a main dish: tempeh or lentil shepherd's pie, broiled marinated tofu and chickpea gravy, winter squash halved, roasted, and stuffed with rice or quinoa or vegetables.

For dessert, you could always just do pie fillings a la mode in individual cups, without the crust. Pudding or mousse would be elegant.

I am sort of annoyed that I have never tasted seitan or most fake turkeys but they look kinda gross anyhow...

We like to have stuffed squash as an entree. Don't have a recipe up my sleeve. It's not thanksgiving to me without pie, so I will usually make one of those. Since I'm a part-time raw foodie, I'll make a raw one most likely.

If it makes you feel better, I don't think you're missing anything. :)

I'm sorry I missed it too, but this will also probably be the menu for Christmas:
GF Chickpea Cutlets
Brown Rice Bread Stuffing
Cranberry Sauce
Kale Salad
Gravy
Corn
Green Beans
Carrots
Sweet Potato Pear Tzimmes
Pumpkin Pie
Biscuits

The biscuits were so-so. The rest was really good!

Here's what I made for my Thanksgiving-inspired meal: chickpea tar, mushroom spinach stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts and pumpkin pie.
