Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the team here at Paleo Baking Company wanted to share our favorite paleo Thanksgiving recipes. We've created a list of all of the best side dishes and desserts for you to create and enjoy with your family and friends this holiday.
So, don't worry about what you're going to serve that one paleo niece or cousin. Paleo Baking Company has you covered this Thanksgiving!
Everyone in the paleo community recognizes that there's nothing paleo about cornbread. That's why we used our popular Hazelnut Cake and Muffin Mix and added butternut squash and sage to fancy it up. You'll be surprised at how much this tastes like real cornbread! Then, make your stuffing and finish it with hearty paleo "cornbread" breadcrumbs. Your guests will be amazed and awestruck.
This casserole is officially the most decadent paleo side dish you'll enjoy all year. You won't believe it, but we're willing to bet that this recipe would run circles around you're Great Aunt Edna's famous green bean casserole. Seriously. It's that good. It all starts with fresh green beans, crescendos with a homemade mushroom cream sauce, and climaxes with real crunchy fried onion topping. Just do it.
Every Thanksgiving table needs a tart cranberry sauce to cleanse the palate between savory bites of stuffing, potatoes, and turkey. We've put a twist on the traditional cranberry sauce by adding fragrant orange and zesty ginger to the mix. Ginger is a well known stomach soother, so this recipe is perfect for over indulging during the holidays.
Mashed potatoes are always a hit on Thanksgiving. Let's be honest, they are basically a carbohydrate vehicle for gravy. So, if you're trying to stick to your diet this holiday season and you don't want to OD on high-glycemic carbs, make this deliciously flavorful roasted vegetable "fauxtatoes." You won't miss the white spuds.
Why go to the effort of making a turkey and mashed fauxtatoes if you're not going to pretty much drown them in gravy? Most gravy recipes are thickened with wheat flour or corn starch, but we've made a fabulously decadent paleo gravy to please your guests. Make it super fancy by infusing the gravy with fresh tarragon and shallot, or omit these flavors and make a traditional turkey gravy - chef's choice!
This recipe is made with our famous Vanilla Cake and Muffin Mix so it's both quick and easy. Make this crust and fill it with your favorite pie flavors. Or, better yet, make two pie crusts and decorate the top of your holiday pie with beautiful latticework or cut out embellishments. You'll wow the entire family with your above average talent.
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie. There's just something magical about sweet pumpkin custard with nutmeg and cinnamon filling a flaky pie crust to the brim. This pumpkin pie recipe is super easy to make using an every day food processor. You'll have a fragrant Thanksgiving pie cooling on the counter in no time.
