As winter rolls around, everyone loves curling up with a blanket – and some hearty comfort food.

For all of you gluten-free folks out there, fear not. While it may seem like the meals that provide the most comfort also contain the most wheat, it doesn’t have to be that way.

If you offered to bring a dish to an upcoming holiday party, try this Creamy Gluten-Free and Vegan White Bean Pasta. The ingredients in this dish avoid all the most common food intolerances – without falling short on flavor.

The holidays are also the perfect time to try new takes on old favorites, especially where family parties are concerned. This Gluten-Free Kale Pesto Salad will sit perfectly alongside servings of your loved one’s more traditional dishes.

Pasta salads like my Gluten-Free Sweat Pea Pasta Salad and Gluten-Free Goat Cheese and Parsley Salad provide the perfect marriage of savory and sweet—and no one will notice there’s no wheat.

And sometimes there’s nothing better than a big bowl of Savory Marjoram Mac and Cheese to lift your spirits on a snowy, winter day.

With a little inspiration and improvisation, you can make winter staples fulfill any dietary restrictions, without losing their essence.
