Delicious gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes

By: Canadian Living
Canadian Living has a TON of delicious recipes for the holidays—see here for how to have the best Thanksgiving ever. But we're always hungry for new recipe ideas so when healthy food retailer Whole Foods approached us with some of their Thanksgiving recipes we decided to share. Whole Foods COCONUT-MARSHMALLOW SPICED SWEET POTATOES Whole Foods Coconut-Marshmallow Spiced Sweet Potatoes Ingredients: 
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, more for the baking dish
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 cup all-natural marshmallows, cut into small pieces
  Instructions: Butter a 2-quart baking dish or four 1-cup ramekins and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Scrub the sweet potatoes and boil or steam until very tender. Remove from heat and let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel the sweet potatoes. 

Put them in a bowl and mash with salt, brown sugar, butter, ginger, coriander and coconut milk until very smooth. Spoon sweet potatoes into baking dish or ramekins. Top with coconut and marshmallows. Bake until marshmallows and coconut are lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. For more delicious Canadian Living sweet potato recipes click here. Whole Foods spiced cranberry sauce Whole Foods Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Chardonnay and Orange Zest Ingredients:
