There can really be tons of recipes you can make for a gluten-free appetizer before you main meal. A lot of them are lighter snacks and a lot of them are dips as well. Pumpkin Hummus is one that my mom has made a few times for Thanksgiving and is one that has been pretty popular each year. This recipe is both gluten-free and free of most allergies as well which makes it perfect. It's a great dip to have for Thanksgiving and is one that anyone with any allergies can enjoy. It's a little different from most dips you have tried but I would definitely recommend it.
