Low-FODMAP Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Low-FODMAP Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup  /  Delicious as it Looks

I thought I would round up all of my favorite low-FODMAP Thanksgiving recipes in one post to make them easy to find. Let's not waste another moment - let's start feasting!

Low-FODMAP Cranberry Spiced Pumpkin Muffins  /  Delicious as it Looks

Cranberry Spiced Pumpkin Muffins
Start off the morning of the big day with one of these tasty muffins. These muffins are low in FODMAPs, gluten-free, gum-free and go perfectly with a cup of coffee. Or you can do like my family and serve them instead of rolls for dinner!

Low-FODMAP BLT Bites Appetizer  /  Delicious as it Looks

BLT Bites
Whet your appetite with these cute little hors d'ouevres. Also consider serving some cheese, gluten-free crackers and nuts (such as pecans, walnuts and a few almonds) for additional low-FODMAP appetizers.

Low-FODMAP Green Bean Casserole  /  Delicious as it Looks
Green Bean Casserole
Thanksgiving isn't complete without green bean casserole, especially if you live in the Midwest. It's the dish that will never die. It's so delicious, there's no reason for it to go away and I look forward to eating it every year. This version omits the fried onions, but retains the flavor and texture with scallions and a crunchy topping.

Low-FODMAP Turkey Gravy  /  Delicious as it Looks

Turkey Gravy
The most important component of the Thanksgiving meal, according to my husband. He drizzles it over everything on his plate!

Low-FODMAP "Buttermilk" and Chive Mashed Potatoes  /  Delicious as it Looks

"Buttermilk" and Chive Mashed Potatoes
A flavorful and unique twist to traditional mashed potatoes, using kefir as a buttermilk substitute, giving it a nice tangy flavor.

Low-FODMAP Turkey Stuffing  /  Delicious as it Looks

Turkey Stuffing
No Thanksgiving would be complete without a delicious stuffing (or dressing as it's also known as).

Roast Turkey  /  Delicious as it Looks

I don't have a turkey recipe on my blog, but the most recent turkey I made was this one from It was fun to make, if only to see the skin shrink up when the hot water is poured over top. Skip the garlic powder to keep it low-FODMAP.

Low-FODMAP Cranberry Sauce  /  Delicious as it Looks

Cranberry Sauce
I highly recommend this recipe from Use fresh orange juice and some orange zest for even more flavor. Or if you are fan of the canned stuff (in this case, boxed) I recommend Pacific Organic Jellied Cranberry Sauce. Just cranberries, sugar and water (no HFCS!). Note: Monash University has not tested fresh or frozen cranberries yet, so eat only if you know you can tolerate them.

Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Pie  /  Delicious as it Looks

Pumpkin Pie
No Thanksgiving would be complete without pumpkin pie (unless you are my dad and have to have mincemeat pie). My low-FODMAP pumpkin pie recipe tastes just like the real thing!
