(Family Features) Following a gluten-free diet during the holiday season can be stressful and daunting. Almonds, in their various forms, are the ideal solution to elevate the flavor and texture in gluten-free recipes without sacrificing taste.
"Staying gluten-free during the holiday season can be challenging, but with almonds, navigating the dinner table is simple," says John Csukor, chef and CEO of KOR Food Innovation. "Almonds are a safe and delicious choice that enhances any sensory experience without limit."
Naturally gluten-free and versatile, almonds offer a wide range of gluten-free solutions that bring a balance of interesting flavors and unique texture to a whole host of recipes without the worry that those with gluten sensitivities face during the holidays.
While gluten-free living requires planning and preparation, it also encourages the exciting discovery of new foods and flavors. So rethink some of your favorite recipes - from entrees to desserts - and substitute ingredients with various almond forms to add flavor, crunch and sophistication to dishes.
For example, you can inspire guests this holiday season with an Almond Sacher Torte that will tempt them to begin dinner with dessert instead.
