Wild rice, chorizo and gluten-free bread stuffing

Gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes

Try this twist on sausage-rice stuffing by swapping out white rice for wild rice, and using flavor-packed chorizo.

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 container (13 ounce) Pillsbury Gluten Free refrigerated pizza crust dough
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound gluten-free chorizo sausage, diced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (from 32-ounce carton)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

  1. In a 2-quart saucepan, heat the water, rice and salt to boiling; stir. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, or until most of the liquid has evaporated and rice pops open.
  2. Drain the water, and set the rice aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, heat your oven to 400 degrees F. With your hands, grease a baking sheet with the 1 teaspoon olive oil. With oiled hands, press the pizza dough into a 6-inch circle on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the crust is dry and the bottom is golden brown.
  5. Remove from baking sheet and cool on a wire rack. When cool, cut the crust into bite-size cubes.
  6. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Grease a 2-quart casserole.
  7. In a 12-inch skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the chorizo, onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Stir in the parsley and sage and cook 1 minute longer.
  8. In a large bowl, stir together the wild rice, pizza crust cubes, chorizo mixture, chicken broth, salt and pepper.
  9. Spoon the mixture into a casserole dish and cover it with aluminum foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately.

Stewed green beans with crumb topping

Gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes

Green beans get even better when a generous amount of cheesy crumb topping soaks in the herb-infused tomato juices.

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 container (15.8 ounce) Pillsbury Gluten Free refrigerated pie and pastry dough
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled gluten-free feta cheese

Directions:

  1. Heat your oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet and set it aside.
  2. Crumble the dough and almonds with your hands until the dough is softened.

  4. Carefully turn the dough over to remove the second sheet of paper. Use the paper to carefully turn the dough over filling, then remove paper.
  5. Bake 6-8 minutes, or until the bottom of the crust begins to brown. Cool it on a wire rack.

  7. Stir in the undrained tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper and heat to boiling. Spoon the mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish.
  8. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, crumble the crust and cheese until combined. Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the bean mixture.
