Six Easy Gluten-Free Side Dishes for your Holiday Meal
I know most of you have had your main dish for Christmas planned for weeks, but how are you set on side dishes? These six recipes are holiday table worthy and easy to make. Yes, I said easy. Not every dish has to be a production. Keep some of your sides simple to save time in the kitchen on Christmas day. Even better, a few of these dishes can be prepped the day before and simply reheated before dinner.
We always enjoy these bundles of goodness, and not only as a holiday side dish. Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is simple to make, but tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen.
This casserole can be assembled the night before, then all you need to do is make the crumb topping and pop it in the oven the next day. Yes, Cheesy Cauliflower bake is a little indulgent, but that's allowed for holiday recipes.
I think most of us love Grandma's sweet potato casserole that tastes like dessert, but Savory Sweet Potato Mash dials down the sweetness with rosemary and sautéed leeks. This is one dish that you can prepare the day before, then simply heat before serving.
I really love roasting veggies to bring out their more complex flavors. Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Pearl Onions is no exception. Yes, could simply roast and serve, but the creamy garlic parmesan sauce adds wonderful flavor while still letting the veggies shine.
Cleaned Up Green Bean Casserole uses whole foods rather than packaged or processed food, and it's still so easy to make and definitely doesn't compromise on flavor.
The parsnips give these Parsnip Mashed Potatoes a delicious earthy flavor, and the nutritional yeast adds a hint of cheese without adding any dairy to these vegan, Whole30 friendly mashed potatoes. Why not try a unique take on the traditional mashed potatoes for your holiday table this year?
I sincerely hope your holiday is filled with love, family, and friends--oh, and of course, great food. Enjoy this wonderful time of the year, and embrace the time with your loved ones.
