Gluten Free Side Dishes

Gluten Free Side Dishes

This is the season for pot luck dinners, family gatherings, parties, and get togethers. Whether you are hosting or are asked to bring something with you I am sure you have your go to dishes. Something you are famous for and everyone asks you to bring or make. But sometimes you want to make something different. Experiment without going crazy and ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy what you have created. Remember just because it is the holidays does not mean that everything on the menu has to be heavy, full of fat, and calorie dense. You can make lighter versions of things or throw in some summer favorites to keep things a little on the lighter side.

You can never go wrong when you bring Gluten Free Side Dishes. With enough yummy side dishes you can forgo the main item without missing out on enjoying the meal with everyone. Many traditional items can be made into gluten free side dishes just by changing out a single ingredient.

Go heavy on the vegetables. Vegetables offer a lot of color to your table and when not overcooked make for a really nice addition to either a full sit down meal or finger food. You can never go wrong with a few vegetable side dishes.

It is always important to make sure your guests leave satisfied. They don’t have to be overstuffed though which is where these sides come into play. Make sure you make enough for everyone to have a serving spoon full or two!

If you are making rolls make sure to keep the raw dough away from your dog. Raw dough will expand in their stomach so even a little bit can lead to big problems.

Several different finger food type items can make up an entire meal so don’t feel like you have to make a main course at all especially if this is not a sit down serve everyone affair. If people will be mixing and mingling it is easier to offer finger foods that allow them to continue the conversation and enjoy the company. Davinia’s first news Year’s Eve with me I invited over a bunch of friends and served mainly finger foods. Everyone loved having so many options and not feeling like they needed to be prim and proper. I can’t remember if Davinia hung out with everyone or if she went and sleep on my bed but I am sure she managed to have a bite or two without me knowing. Which brings up an important point especially if you will be having the party at your house make sure there are no onions, raw garlic, or grapes that your dog can sneak off with. If you serve chocolate for dessert make sure all of your guests know it can be dangerous to indulge your dog in any chocolate treat.

Sometimes all that is necessary is a fun salsa or relish to bring all of the different items together.
