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!
Green bean casserole is an amazingly nostalgic holiday side dish for many of us. With its creamy mushroom soup-based sauce, mouth-watering aroma, and crunchy fried onion toppings, the green bean casserole is a beloved Thanksgiving dish for many.
One would think it would be difficult to create a paleo version of this dairy and wheat-filled traditional side dish, but it actually isn't too complicated. The trick is to make a quick paleo mushroom soup with almond milk instead of cream. Using earthy chopped portabella mushrooms will punch up the elegance factor and flavor. Homemade mushroom soup is infinitely better than the canned variety.
Cranberry sauce is that Thanksgiving side dish that has a bit of a rebellious streak. With its tangy-tart flavor, it serves as a palate cleanser or wake-up-call between savory bites of turkey, potatoes and stuffing. Not everyone is a fan of cranberry sauce, but we're here to make the argument that this paleo cranberry sauce should have a seat at the table.
Ah, mashed potatoes. That starchy, white comfort food that we long for from our pre-paleo days. While some paleo foodies include the white potato in their daily diets, many of us shy away from the humble potato due to its high starch content.
But what to do when you want to serve a mashed potato-like side dish at your next holiday gathering? What would be as delicious next to a succulent beef roast with paleo gravy?
Never fear, paleo community, we've got you covered with this easy recipe.
Bring on the gravy train! Just because you follow a healthy paleo lifestyle doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy gravy once in a while every day. This gravy recipe is perfect for a Thanksgiving or Christmas menu, because it can be made with the drippings from a turkey or any roasted meat of your choosing.And it's easy to make! Just make sure that shallots and fresh tarragon are on your pre-event grocery list and you're all set. Most of us paleo-ites (paleoans?) have extra bone broth or chicken stock and tapioca starch in the pantry. Making this gravy a paleo holiday meal staple is a no brainer.
Traditional stuffing recipes have always been a hallmark of American Thanksgiving meals. Full of savory herbs, crunchy vegetables and comforting breadcrumbs, stuffing adds a lot to jazz up the flavor of a turkey dinner. Most stuffing recipes make use of bread as a filler to soak up chicken broth and savory spices, so how could this recipe possibly be paleo?
Well, one option is to substitute carb for carb. Paleo stuffings can use delicious squash and root vegetables to replace wheat-laden bread. Cubed butternut squash, sweet potatoes, parsnips, turnips, and more. These are all excellent alternatives to gluten.
