Thanksgiving Recipes for Everyone's Dietary Needs

This Thanksgiving, relieve some stress with these crowd pleasing recipes for everyone at your family table.

Dairy and L​actose Intolerance is very common these days. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the creamy goodness of Butternut Squash Soup. This recipe is so creamy and delicious, your guests won't even know the difference. I've made this soup many times and it is a true crowd pleaser.

G​luten Intolerance is a growing concern as well. This Crustless Apple Pie is not really a pie at all, but it is delicious! It will give you all the ‘feels’ of apple pie, but without the gluten. This may be a quick winter favorite for me all winter as it’s easy to reduce or increase the portion sizes without doing math.

The thought of having a V​egan at your Thanksgiving table probably starts with anxiety. What is vegan anyway?? The easy definition is: a diet without animal products. If an animal was involved, they don't eat it. Some hardcore vegans don't eat honey, some still eat honey and eggs... but to be safe, I'd say no animal products whatsoever. Eliminating butter or cheese and calling it Thanksgiving "comfort food" seems like an oxymoron, but there are really easy ways to substitute, and to satisfy the non-vegans at the table as well. This recipe, packed with lentils and mushrooms, gives meat eaters the richness of a meat dish. The ingredients are easy to find in any store and only takes 15-20 minutes to prepare. All of your guests will be thrilled with

K​eto is a popular diet and has some great recipes online. This recipe for Reuben Pickle Bites is a creative and simple appetizer. If you’re looking to get the kids involved in the cooking, this would be a great recipe to start with.

For guests with F​ood Allergies, this Allergy-Free Thanksgiving Stuffing is so good, it also makes a great weeknight dinner. It looks complicated and has a long list of ingredients, but it only takes about 15 minutes to put together. It’s hearty and bold and the definition of comfort food. These recipes will make your Thanksgiving dinner a meal to remember, and will make your guests with dietary needs feel special.
