Thanksgiving tip: if you’re looking for a flour substitute to thicken your gravy, try kuzu or arrowroot powder as a flour substitute to thicken a gluten-free gravy.

From: Liz Tigani, DishingWell

Her expertise: My passion is culinary nutrition – I love cooking and health-ifying classic recipes – with a focus on gluten-free (I’ve been gluten-free since 2010).

Recipe: After trying several recipes, my favorite gluten-free stuffing to date is from Tulu’s Bakery in NYC; not surprising since their bread (and just about everything else they offer) is fantastic. Just call in to order the mix, which includes all the spices pre-measured and ready to go. Simply add stock and butter and you’re done. I also add sausage and granny smith apples. Believe it or not, this stuffing usually goes faster than the non gluten-free version at our family Thanksgiving.
