With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, I thought you might be looking for a few reliable and easy recipes! Whether you are hosting or are an invited guest, you are sure to find a tasty recipe. I have compiled a list of some of my Paleo Thanksgiving Favorites! These are the recipes that I will be having this holiday season.
This Herb Roasted Boneless Turkey Breast always receives rave reviews. All that is required is a few ingredients and some fresh herbs. The prep time for this dish is a few minutes. The big bonus is that while the turkey is roasting, you can prepare other dishes for your meal.
The days of canned jellied cranberry sauce are gone. Fun fact: I never liked cranberry sauce and always avoided it completely. That is until I had this recipe. It is so different and fresh tasting! With this Cranberry Orange Sauce recipe, you can make the freshest, tastiest side dish which will be absolutely irresistible! By the way, do you remember the jello molds? I do love the cranberry orange combination and make these scones often.
For many, Thanksgiving would not be complete without a sweet potato dish. This Sweet Potato Casserole with Candied Pecans is tasty and so pretty all at the same time! It may seem that I have spent an awful lot of time recently perfecting sweet potato recipes (here, here here and here). This is true and I continue this endeavor.
Looking for a side dish that is a little different, but has the typical holiday veggies? May I suggest Orange Ginger Glazed Carrot and Parsnips? The carrots and parsnips soften slightly and soak up the delicious sauce. Yum! I really prefer a cast iron skillet for this recipe.
Save Room For Dessert-
A fall favorite, this Paleo Apple and Cranberry Crisp works very nicely on Thanksgiving as well. This recipe uses fresh or dried cranberries. This scrumptious recipe can be made ahead and is delicious served with coconut whipped cream or your favorite ice cream. I love using my Kitchen aid electric mixer with the whip attachment for coconut whipped cream.
Some Tips For Preparing Paleo Thanksgiving Favorites –
- Do as much chopping and prep ahead as possible. I chop vegetables, nuts, fruits, etc.. and place in labeled containers in the refrigerator. This makes assembling recipes for cooking and baking so much easier.
- Outline your meal, make lists of necessary ingredients, and do shopping ahead.
- Set your holiday table the morning of your feast.
- Make your holiday morning breakfast simple (e.g. smoothie).
- Encourage others to help. This makes the day, meal, holiday more fun and enjoyable for all
Hope you have a wonderful holiday. I would love to hear your favorite holiday meals and/or traditions. Let me know in the comments. 🙂
