When I'm creating a gathering I love to nurture each person a little bit. And a big part of that is cooking food they can eat without having to worry about what's in it. Lot's of us have paleo or gluten free people in our life. It's easy to focus on what they can't eat and our feelings about that. If we're not careful it can build up into a feeling of rejection.
Much of the meal we create (veggies, salad, turkey, etc.) is gluten or grain free except the stuffing! So let's talk stuffing.
You can make stuffing from almost anything and it's a lot easier than you think. If you start with butter, sage, onions, and celery anything will taste like stuffing. For dairy free and gluten free use olive or grape seed oil instead of butter. Some of my favorite gluten-less alternatives are cauliflower and mushrooms. They make a fabulous stuffing. You could trick them out with nuts and dried berries, even oysters, or you could keep it simple and just enjoy them as is. Check out my stuffing recipe here in Janelle's Holiday Recipe Collection. Which by the way I'm giving to everyone for FREE!
Preparing foods that are worry free for my guests is only one way to nurture I them. Ultimately what nurtures them nurtures me too. I love that. It meets my triple bottom line. Win win win. Lot's of ways jump to mind.
Ease breeds ease.
