What’s on your Thanksgiving menu this year? Here are some favorites that are being considered at our place (keeping in mind that GRAVY is a must!)
Soup: Sweet Potato and White Bean Curry Soup – with roasted broccoli – one of my personal faves.
Berry Apple Relish – a wonderful side dish! The combo of green apples, cranberries, frozen raspberries and apricot jam is a winner.
Garlicky Green Beans is on the radar as a possibility, as well as
Tossed green salad with all the trimmings, topped with any of these oil-free dressings.
Chef AJ’s Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts – YUMMY.
Rolls – try the whole-wheat Artisan rolls found in the freezer at Whole Foods. Or a healthy whole-grain, oil-free bread can be found in many grocery stores.
Impossible Pumpkin Pie – a tried and true favorite for my hubby, who LOVES pumpkin pie. (I used canned pure pumpkin and it works fine).
Vanilla Cream Sauce – to top that pumpkin pie!
Mary McDougall’s Chocolate Cream Pie (tried this at the Study Weekend – VERY good).
Baked Stuffed Apples – Although I haven’t tried this version, it looks similar to many others that have proven to be delicious.
These are just a few suggestions to consider. Of course there are HUNDREDS (probably thousands) of other whole-food, plant-based, no-oil recipes that are equally as scrumptious, including “Sweet Potato Bakes” and “Stuffed Squash” recipes that would certainly fit the occasion.
Give thanks to God this year for our bountiful harvest of delicious foods which nourish and promote health in our bodies. What a gift!
