Nut-Free, Gluten-Free Stuffing
download (5)

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’m gearing up to cook an epic feast that’s nut-free, gluten-free, and also includes dairy-free and vegan options! One of the trickiest items is stuffing, a dish usually full of gluten..and nuts. Today is also National Stuffing Day, which felt like the perfect time for me to share a few of my favorite recipes and pre-made allergen-free (nut-free and gluten-free specifically) stuffing mixtures.

After transitioning to a gluten-free diet a few years ago a cuisine that has been largely off limits for me has been Chinese food. While I love egg rolls and dumplings, there are very few restaurants that offer a gluten-free variation on the typical gluten-filled recipes. I was excited to learn about Feel Good Foods, which was started by food-loving celiac Vanessa Phillips and accomplished chef Tryg Siverson. Now offering frozen gluten-free egg rolls, dumplings, empanadas, taquitos, and full Asian meals. I was lucky enough to speak with Vanessa and learn a bit more about Feel Good Goods.

Summertime is synonymous with sunshine, backyards, beaches, and BBQ. Given that National Hot Dog Day happens this month I felt inspired to create my own Allergy Free Wife spin on the typical hot dog meal, replacing the hot dog with a fire-roasted fuji apple chicken sausage, trading in a traditional wheat bun for a gluten-free variety made with whole grains, and swapping out fries for baked lentil chips.

Of the 550 pizza places in NYC, only 25 offer gluten-free pizza. In the mood for just a slice instead of the whole pie? You’re now limited to about 5 spots. Options for those wanting gluten-free pizza by the slice in NYC are pretty dismal, which is why when I heard that Vinnie’s Pizzeria in Brooklyn was creating made from scratch gluten-free pizza by the slice, I wanted to learn more!

Today we’re talking all about KUGEL! The combo of sweet and savory really speaks to me..which is why when I moved towards a gluten-free, nut-free diet, Kugel seemed like a dish I’d have to say goodbye to. With Passover right around the corner, I went on a search for my favorite gluten-free, nut-free, kugel recipes. Even if you don’t celebrate Passover, I highly recommend trying kugel, it will change your life!

As a child, one of my favorite indulgent meals was orange chicken from Panda Express. I’m now aware how bad this dish is for you (gluten! fried! full of fat!). My challenge this week was to re-create the Allergy Free Wife version. It would need to be healthy, and free of gluten, nuts, and dairy. The verdict? Success!
