Green Bean Casserole (Dairy free, Egg free, Soy free, Gluten free, Vegan)

Thanksgiving is just one week away!  I love Thanksgiving and all of the family time with traditional favorite dishes crowding the table.  Something I haven’t yet made for Superman was Green Bean Casserole, so this year I’m adding it to my list of allergy-friendly holiday favorites!  This dish usually has cream of mushroom soup as it’s base, but making an easy “gravy” is a great substitute for the soup (and much healthier!)  If you’ve never made a gravy before, don’t sweat it.  Just follow the directions and you should be good to go.

I topped this recipe with pan toasted onions and crackers to make it easily gluten free.  If you’re not following a wheat & gluten free diet, then store bought french fried onions may work for your family.  Please read labels carefully to assure that they are safe.

My family really enjoyed taste testing this recipe, and I hope it finds a place on your holiday table.

SunButter Apple Cider (Dairy, Egg, Soy, Gluten, Peanut, & Tree Nut Free; Vegan)

It’s fall ya’ll, and pumpkins and apples are in abundance!  Everyone is screaming “Pumpkin Spice!”, but Superman has a pumpkin allergy, so we’re enjoying apple cider and other fall yummies.  I was really craving apple cider last weekend, and I broke down and bought some.  One of my friends told me to top my cider with mini marshmallows, and well….she’s genius!  It was so good!

If you have been following me long at all, you know I’m a huge fan of SunButter and I try to incorporate it into pretty much anything I can.  I love SunButter with apple slices, so why not mix it with apple cider?!  With a hint of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon, you’re sure to enjoy this hot apple cider blended with SunButter in your favorite mug.  It’s naturally an allergy-friendly beverage that is dairy free, egg free, peanut free, tree nut free, soy free, and gluten free!
