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!
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!
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.
The most important component of the Thanksgiving meal, according to my husband. He drizzles it over everything on his plate!
"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.
No Thanksgiving would be complete without a delicious stuffing (or dressing as it's also known as).
I don't have a turkey recipe on my blog, but the most recent turkey I made was this one from Food.com. 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.
I highly recommend this recipe from Food.com. 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.
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!
