My dinner table at Thanksgiving time is adorned with sweet and savory traditions that hold precious memories. They also hold excess calories, fat and salt that actually cover up the natural flavors. So, how do I hang on to the traditions and remove the unwanted calories? It's simple. Keep the primary ingredients and eliminate the added ones - such as, marshmallows, candied nuts, heavy cream (save that for the pie topping), sugar and more. Get back to basics. Honestly, the pilgrams did not add a can of cream of mushroom soup to their green beans and you know it.
My Roasted Roots recipe is actually not as much of a recipe as it is a method of preparring a Thanksgiving side dish that will delight your nostalgic fancy while staying true to your whole food lifestyle. The true taste and texture of each vegetable is highlighted by avoiding certain ingredients. And the fragrance of rosemary throughout your home with catapult you to every happy Thanksgiving memory you can muster and create new memories.
Now Go Cook is so grateful for you. We pray your holiday season is blessed and loaded with rich family time and wonderful memories.
