Anyone have good thanksgiving recipes they can share? Especially TF versions of Thanksgiving classics?

Cranberry Chutney?
Pumpkin soup?
Pumpkin pie?
Sweet potato pie?
stuffing?

Those are just the first things that come to mind...

Recipes that non-TF family members will like or won't know they are TF?

please share!

I use sourdough bread for my stuffing, frying it, soaked walnuts, apples and dried cranberries in bacon fat mixing it with marjoram, thyme and parsley and chicken or turkey stock.

I also make a fantastic pecan pie with soaked pecans, sprouted spelt crust and maple syrup.

I blog traditional foods and Weston A Price at Nourished Kitchen. See my healthy recipes.

I am hoping to do a few pies this year w/ nut crusts- likely pumpkin. I want to try a stuff recipe this year w/ some homemade grainfree bread, but havn't done any experiementing yet. I just modify the traditional pumpkin pie recipe to use good ingredients- except it has to be dairy free for us.

I am subbed to entirely too many threads, but I have to jump on this one. Since I managed to get knocked up in time to be hugely pregnant for Thanksgiving, I get to skip out on the big celebration with the in-laws. This makes me EXTREMELY HAPPY!!!! LOL No two-day (each way) drive for a stupid two-day visit that involves be starving half to death.

ANYway, I get to cook the feaste for a small group. Not sure how small yet. Hubby is still going to fly to the family shindig. Dd might go with him, she's not sure yet. My mom will be here, and maybe one or two of her friends. So, maybe 4 adults and 2 kids. I *think* I still want to do a whole turkey. It's the one time of year I ever eat turkey. Mainly because I'm not a big fan... which makes me wonder why on earth I'd bother. I dunno. I certainly will NOT be buying a good turkey. $100 for something I probably won't even like that much... it's just not in the budget this year.

Anyway, I want to keep it very traditional... both in our meaning of TF and also in just the types of dishes served. Turkey, dressing, pumpkin pie... not sure what else. I *love* sweet potatoes in all forms... except the marshmallowy kind. But with pumpkin pie, too, that's a lot of orange. I could do a different pie, like a cranberry walnut something, but... I'm a sucker for pumpkin pie. I like simple garlicky greens or green beans, and those are easy. I want a lot of easy. This will only be my second time hostessing a Thanksgiving Feaste. (I love adding the "e"... makes it seem fancier, LOL) I went totally overboard last time, and had a larger crowd. It's going to be REALLY hard to reign myself in.

This is thanksgiving weekend for Canadians. I'm currently thawing our homegrown turkey (this is the first year we've grown our own!) and finalizing a rather last-minute menu. Luckily it's just dh & the kids and I for dinner this year, so we'll keep it pretty simple. One of my favorite TF-friendly yet slightly indulgent things to make is a pumpkin pie cheesecake with a nut crust. The filler is just pureed pumpkin mixed with cream cheese and honey to sweeten, plus your favorite pumpkin pie spice. Nice with whipped cream or ice cream.

This is one of our favorite Thanksgiving and general fall-season soups: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...routons-102511 I use homemade chicken broth instead of canned.

Here's another recipe we really like: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...ses-Glaze-2768 Instead of "white bread crumbs" I use homemade sourdough bread crumbs. I suppose it would be best with homemade beef broth, too, but otherwise I think it's pretty TF.

Oooh, I love sausage-stuffed acorn squash. I made something like that for a Yule Feaste a few years ago. Once again, it ended up being entirely too much food... because they were a sidedish, but had all that meat...

Really tasty, though. I need to rustle up a bigger group to cook for. LOL

I just finished cooking my first grain free Thanksgiving!

I was given the greatest tip for grain free gravy by a gf friend. Take the drippings and plenty of bone stock. Add to a large pot that has some cream boiling in it and allow to boil until reduced and thickened. Take off the heat and add some egg yolks or butter to further thicken if desired. Salt and pepper to taste.

I made:

Shrimp salad served in half and avacado, garnished with baby heirloom tomatoes.

Mascarpone peas that were loved by all.

Roasted garlic root veggies (I used potatoes, turnip, celery root and jicama and 8 heads of garlic, 1/2 a cup of melted butter and 1/2 cup of white wine. Cover with foil and roast at 375 for 45 min, uncover and continue roasting for 15 min or until golden brown. Pull out and remove garlic heads. Hold them with a cloth covering your hand (or gloves) and squeeze out the cloves. Mix into veg and place in serving bowl. Don't forget the buttery garlicy delicious oil in the pan.) These were the best.

Brined and buttered turkey stuffed with apple, fennel, garlic and onion and sausage. This was my first time eating bread free stuffing and I really enjoyed it.

Baked ham with garlic mustard dipping sauce. (Um... I'm starting to see a garlic trend! )

Pumpkin brulee. (torched top and everything.)

Vegan offerings (My future SIL is vegan! I'm always trying to make her healthier food as she doesn't eat very well imo)

Quinoa coconut cream curry stuffed peppers (These were scarfed down by EVERYONE. The flavor was so good and the richness of the coconut cream curry really satisfied!)

Dilly potato salad with coconut cream dressing. I mixed coconut cream into an italian style CO vinegrette and then added fresh dill.

Chai Apple crisp (The crisp was maple glazed pecans and almonds)

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :

Ok I'll try because I don't use recipes, I just throw...

For the stuffed peppers, I started by simmering coconut milk with a bunch of hot curry powder and a couple shakes of garam masala. Then I rinsed the quinoa in cold water and heated a large pot. I added a cup of white wine, and after a minute water. (the ratio for the quinoa is 1 cup of quinoa to 1.5 cups of water, but I find it sometimes needs more.) Boil the quinoa, stirring often. Once the liquid is gone, taste and if still crunchy, add another slosh of wine and then add the coconut milk. Stir until the coconut milk is absorbed by the quinoa. Once quinoa is desired consistancy and flavor (at this point I added a bit more garam masala, some garlic powder and salt and pepper.) use a ladle to fill the peppers (just cut the tops off and remove seeds) and place the peppers into muffin tins so they don't tip over. Stick in the oven or on the grill (dh did the grilling!) until the peppers are a bit soft but still firm enough to hold their shape.

For the apple crisp, I sliced the apples and squeezed a couple limes over them so they wouldn't brown. I greased a glass baking dish generously with CO. I then mixed into my morter 1/2 tbsp cardamom seeds, 1/2 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, 4 star anise, 3 peppercorn, and 1 tsp cloves. I ground it up (coffee grinder would work too, or pre ground!) grated some nutmeg over it and tossed it into the apples, stirring to coat the apples.

Then I put some butter into a frying pan, poured a couple tbsps of maple syrup and the almonds and pecans. Once the almonds and pecans had cooked I poured them over the apples and baked the whole thing at 350 for 30-45 min.

Allowed to cool and served with whipped cream!

If I wasn't grain free I would have added some flour or cornstarch so it wasn't so erm. soupy. This dessert is definitely a work in progress.

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :

The buscuits I made are from Everyday grain-free gourmet and my family really seemed to like them.. although they taste pretty "almondy" to me.
The chutney:
3 c. cranberries
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. nuts (pecans)
1/2 c. rapadura
2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. whey
1/2 c. prune juice or other juice
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
juice from 1 orange
juice from 1 lemon

pulse first 10 ingredients in food processor
stir in raisins
ferment for 48 hours
refridgerate

YUM! I wonder if you could replace the rapadura with a date paste or something? What do you all think?

Does anyone know if conventional cranberries are grown with much pesticides and what not? Will you be buying organic cranberries or regular? (I know ferments especially are supposed to be organic... but I'm not even sure if the health food store will have them or not. I assume so, but don't really know.)

mmmm, I need to make those stuffed peppers!! We are dairy free for now (well, DD is, I am trying to be and my hubby is not haha)- so I'm trying to cook with more coconut milk than raw cows milk now. And no butter! Ack!

I need to dig out my grandma's awesome cranberry relish recipe. It's actually very TF.

I have some pie pumpkins ready for me to make NTs pumpkin pie

Mascarpone peas:

Cook peas. Drain. Take one third of peas and throw into food processor with a pkg of mascarpone cheese, 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, 3/4 cloves of garlic, 1/2 a purple onion, salt and pepper. Process until smooth and creamy, then add to remaining peas and top with snipped chives. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

BTW the stuffed peppers where a hit with the littles. All of them even the pickier ones ate the quinoa.

I made a cider/maple/marjoram turkey last year that rocked the house, it made the gravy so rich and amazing and everyone flipped for it.

I make cornbread stuffing from scratch, fermented cranberry sauce(for the first time last year) and oyster soup (usually, but not this year as we are in COlorado, not NOLa.!)

this thread is making my nouth water with all the ideas and yumminess!

Of course, let's see....

I had a small turkey but of course you could use any size and adjust....I am a throw it in the pot kind of cook so this will all be estimated, but it will work just fine.

I used a couple of cups of cider
Maybe a 1/4 cup maple syrup
dried marjoram and poultry seasoning
a bay leaf
butter salt and pepper
an onion, celery stalk and carrot
homemade turkey stock(I make turkeys more than just on thanksgiving, but chicken would be just fine as would boxed broth)

*So I jammed butter up under the skin of the turkey and sprinkled salt, pepper and poultry seasoning onto the skin of the turkey.
*Then I put the veg. inside the cavity, I think I also seasoned the inside of the turkey with salt and pepper and herbs as well.
*Then I put the turkey in the roaster and seared the outside by setting the oven high like 425 at first and then once it was seared I turned it down to slow cook.
*At that point I poured in the cider, stock and maple syrup and basted the turkey with the liquids about every 20mins.
*Once the turkey was made I made gravy the reg. way, but I like the pp idea of using heavy cream to thicken intstead, it would be yummy this way I think!

I served this with cornbread stuffing but it would be good with other kinds, maybe even one with some nuts or fruit in it.

Ok, that's it. I have put in an order for a heritage breed local turkey.

I was surprised to FIND a heritage breed local turkey... doubly surprised to find a small one that would be the right size for our tiny gathering, and triply (is that a word?) surprised to find that it cost about the same as last year's disappointing organic turkey.

Now I'm going to do my best to make it a Local Thanksgiving. Luckily for me, being in south Texas, that's pretty easy to do. I won't go 100%, cuz I like salt and there's no local butter and... I seriously doubt anyone grows cranberries down here.

Anyway, that cider/maple/marjoram turkey recipe sounds like a real possibility. I've been gathering recipe ideas... I need to finalize my menu soon so I can start shopping and not leave it all to one big, expensive trip.

Does anyone have a good recipe for cranberry chutney/ fermented cranberry something?

In regards to using cream to thicken gravy - has anyone tried this with coconut milk? Was it successful?

How funny! We're due on the same day. I would LOVE to cook a TF style thanksgiving this year but my MIL is flying out for the birth and she is one of those take over the kitchen kinda people. Plus, hubby will defend his mom and what he wants to eat. Not worth the fight. Although I probably will make a couple TF friendly sides (like the stuffing for sure). Helping her sub boxed crap for some homemade stuff.
