One can quite easily craft a festive menu without nuts that will still be brimming with flavors that entice the entire family. Our holiday favorites include succulent roasted meats, vibrant veggie sides, and naturally, nut-free alternatives to classic dishes:

  • Roasted Turkey: A classic centerpiece, just skip the nut-laced stuffing for an herbed bread variation.
  • Nut-Free Stuffing: Opt for a recipe using apples, herbs, and toasted bread for the same satisfying crunch.
  • Roasted Vegetable Medley: Toss together Brussels sprouts, carrots, and parsnips with olive oil, salt, and rosemary for a simple yet delicious side.
  • Gravy: Go for a rich, nut-free gravy made from the turkey drippings, flour, and herbs.

Tips for Hosting Nut-Free Gatherings

Clear communication about dietary restrictions is paramount for hosting an inclusive holiday event. Start with the invitations—be upfront, and ask your guests to respect the nut-free requirement for the safety of those with allergies. Here are a few more tips:

  • Kitchen Prep: Clean your kitchen thoroughly to avoid cross-contamination.
  • Read Labels: Even if you think a product is safe, always read labels for hidden nut ingredients.
  • Nut-Free Brands: Opt for brands that guarantee nut-free products, ensuring extra safety for your guests.

Accommodating Other Dietary Restrictions

Crafting a menu that's not only nut-free but also mindful of other dietary requirements doesn't have to be daunting. The key is variety and consideration. Label dishes clearly, and if possible, provide alternatives:

  • Gluten-Free: Many guests may also avoid gluten, so consider gluten-free bread or dessert options.
  • Dairy-Free: Dairy-free variations of classic dishes can be as lavish and comforting as their traditional counterparts.

Our Lemon Creme bars are an example of a treat that's both nut-free and gluten-free, perfect for guests with multiple food sensitivities.
