Gluten Free Thanksgiving Recipes

A Gluten Free Thanksgiving is very easy to have in your own home.  But if you are going to be a guest, think about bringing a few slices of your own GF turkey if your host stuffs theirs.  I usually bring along a Pumpkin Flan as well.  Below is an easy Green Beans recipe as an alternative for green bean casserole.  Also included is a wonderful recipe for Popovers.  The Popovers are one of the few recipes I make that are not naturally gluten free and require special ingredients.

For Pumpkin Flan go to this recipe.

*******************************************

Green Beans with Toasted Hazelnut-Lemon Butter

1 1/2 tablespoons soften butter

3 tablespoons finely chopped hazelnuts, toasted

1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon rind

2 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided

8 cups of water

1 1/2 pounds of trimmed green beans  These can be found bagged (like salad) in the fresh vegetable isle.

Combine butter, hazelnuts, lemon rind and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and blend well.  Butter can be made up a week in advance and refrigerated.

Boil water with 1 3/4 teaspoons of salt.  Add green beans and cook 3 minutes.  Drain and return pan to medium heat.  Add butter mixture and beans.  Cook about 3 minutes until beans are well coated and tender.

These gluten free Popovers are straight from the box of King Arthur Flour Gluten Free  multi-purpose flour mix.  The Popovers bake up light and hollow in the center.  Just a caution when planning your meal, they take 45 minutes to bake and rest.

4 large eggs

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 1/4 cups of lukewarm milk

1 cup of King Arthur multi-purpose flour  Grocery stores are carrying this now or  can be ordered from  their website as well.

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum Can be found in health food stores.

1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease 12 cup muffin tin. I like to use cooking spray.

2. Whisk together the eggs, butter, and milk in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, xanthan gum, and salt.  Gradually whisk dry ingredients into the liquid, whisking until the batter is smooth.

3. Pour batter into muffin tin filling each cup 2/3 full.

4. Bake for 25 minutes.

5. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 15 more minutes until Popovers are deep brown.

6.  Remove from oven and let them rest for 5 minutes.  Remove from tin and serve immediately.
