These six favorite recipes are the second installment in a series of Thanksgiving recipe inspiration from the Farmgirl Fare archives. Part one was Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas for Appetizers and Snacks. Click on the 'read more' link below to see the other five, and just click on each title to go to the recipe. Enjoy!
Quick Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Lemon and Parmesan (or slightly gussied up with garbanzos and dijon—or if you're lucky enough to have any leftovers, tossed with bowtie pasta, bacon, and pan fried breadcrumbs)
Easy Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Onions, Apples, and a Hint of Orange (tastes great reheated)
Wondering what to do with kohlrabi? Purée it! Kohlrabi Purée is one of my favorite foods (no, really), and the only way I ever prepare kohlrabi. I personally wouldn't serve it for Thanksgiving because I'm selfish and don't like to share my kohlrabi purée, but it would be a fun and healthy addition to the holiday table. Warning: kohlrabi purée is not real pretty—hence this cute photo of Bear guarding some resprouted purple kohlrabi in the kitchen garden (newly discovered hiding in a bed of weeds) instead of the finished product.
Caramelized Beets with Garlic (I love these; sorry no photo again, just me and baby Cary thinning young beet greens back in spring 2007)
Swiss Chard Cabbage Salad with Garbanzos, Broccoli Stems, & Cottage Cheese (a fresh, lowfat twist on cole slaw that's colorful & crunchy)
Crunchy Napa Cabbage Broccoli Slaw with Brussels Sprouts, Radishes, and Creamy Dijon Dressing (a healthy helping of antioxidants—and a snap to make with a food processor)
© 2010 FarmgirlFare.com, the disorganized foodie farm blog where these recipe suggestions are coming a little late, but then again if you're like me, you eat this kind of stuff every other day of the year because on Thanksgiving it's all about the stuffing and the gravy—and dessert.
