The Biggest Gathering of Dairy-Free Thanksgiving Recipes

Posted on by Alisa Fleming in Nutrition Headlines with 12 Comments

Alisa Fleming ~ Thanksgiving can be a tricky time of year for dairy-free living. The typical menu includes potatoes mashed with milk, creamy beans, buttermilk biscuits, and of course, butter added to just about everything on the table. Fortunately, there are many, many wonderful dairy-free Thanksgiving recipes, and I’ve gathered a huge selection of them for you right here. These recipes are from here on Go Dairy Free and from around the blogosphere (thanks to all of the talented contributors!), and they are all dairy-free (yes, that means lactose-free, casein-free, milk-free, and whey-free!).

Each year, this enormous list continues to grow as more dairy-free Thanksgiving recipes are posted. In keeping with demands, you will find a ton of recipes below that are not only dairy-free, but also vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, egg-free, and even nut-free. Poke around and see which ones fit your dietary needs and cravings.

The BIG list below (now at over 200 dairy-free Thanksgiving recipes and growing for milk-free mavens) includes a plethora of sides and main dishes, appropriate to serve to all guests, special diet or not. However, the list of pie recipes has grown so extensively that it now requires a Dairy-Free Pie Recipe Round-Up of its own.

If you prefer to modify some family favorites of your own, see Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook. Within you will find all of the staples you need, including easy recipes for a spot-on condensed creme of mushroom soup (low fat to boot!), sweetened condensed coconut milk (amazing taste and texture), 5-minute “buttermilk,” homemade chocolate chunks, and two simple and nutritious sour creams. Go Dairy Free also contains some of the recipes that appear on my Thanksgiving table, including the Tender Squash Dinner Rolls, Traditional Green Bean Casserole, and the Cheese-Free Scalloped Potatoes. For last minute emergencies, Go Dairy Free is also available as an e-book in PDF format and for your Kindle, iPad, or e-Reader.

    Thank you! Last year for Thanksgiving at my sisters, my son (with many allergies) wasn’t able to eat one thing made for the feast. Even the turkey was cooked in butter! He ate romen noodles. :o( Thank you thank you so much!
