Low FODMAP Thanksgiving Recipes

Nov 16, 2019

This post was originally posted years ago, but the recipes are still great so it’s getting a refresh! Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving!

Woah, can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? I’m still not 100% used to the weather patterns here in Texas – it was 86 degrees a few days ago! – and while I absolutely love that, it has my brain still in summer / maaaaaybe fall mode, and I’m having trouble remembering that it is actually HOLIDAY SEASON. When did that happen?? We’ll be going up to the Great White North in a few days to celebrate with family though, so I have full confidence that I will be slapped with an icy-cold-blast-of-wind-to-the-face dose of reality that will remind me what time of year it is.


Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and wish a very happy Thanksgiving to everyone. This season, I’m doing my best to remember that, despite our differing views and the crazy/chaotic/sad things going on in the world, I have much to be thankful for.

And now for the food! I’ve never hosted a Thanksgiving, so I don’t have any miraculous turkey recipes to share (plus, if I ever did host, I’d do my best to get away with making pizza instead), but if you’re still looking for some low-FODMAP side dishes to bring, here are my favorites!


Be sure to read my tips for traveling and my tips for eating out, as well as my holiday survival guide! Nobody wants to feel miserable during this time of year.


Beef braise with mashed parsnips

Quick pumpkin soup

Sourdough pizza or Detroit style pizza (in case you have success convincing your family to have pizza instead of turkey. Invite me over?)


Gluten free cornbread (this is always a hit!)

Maple roasted beets

Roasted sweet potatoes

Kale + blueberry salad


Gluten free pumpkin pie – hands down the best gluten free pie crust. Ever.

Pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes

Wheat free cinnamon rolls

From around the web

Life changing gluten free biscuits – also from Alternative Baker, these look amazing!

Simple sweet potato fries – we usually do some roasted veggies, and I love that this recipe broils them at the end. Crispy sweet potatoes = heaven.

Kale cranberry walnut salad – this looks like a delicious way to add in some greens!

And, A Step-by-Step Guide to Drinking Wine at Thanksgiving because everyone gets along better with a glass of wine.

It’s the day after Labor Day, and I’m walking into Whole Foods. I look up and see… pumpkins. Rows upon rows of pumpkins. It literally looks like someone picked up an entire pumpkin patch and dropped it on Whole Food’s doorstep…

Oi. It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? A busy / stressful bit at work + my inability to take time off + doing wedding planning stuff during the time I usually spend writing blog posts = a lot of radio silence, it turns out…
