New Traditions Thanksgiving Dinner
From roast turkey with sweet onion jam to a chili-chocolate torte, these fresh Thanksgiving dishes play on classic flavor pairings in fun, new ways.
Arugula and Roasted Cauliflower Salad
Aromatic Parsnips and Carrots
Roasting cauliflower to a golden brown brings out scrumptious flavors. Tossed with spicy arugula this salad is really a tremendous treat -- anytime.
Two Autumnal classics, carrots and parsnips, are made extra special with complementary flavors reminiscent of India -- fennel, cinnamon, coriander, and garlic.
Celery Root and Sweet Potato Cakes
Fingerling potatoes are fabulous simply roasted with oil, salt, and pepper. Add the garlic-infused dipping sauce and it's beyond fabulous.
Apple, Bacon, and Leek Bread Pudding
Sweet Potato and Celery Root Cakes are a fun twist on classic potato pancakes. The sweetness of the celery root and sweet potatoes are balanced by the spice from the cumin.
Apple, Bacon, and Leek Bread Pudding is a fabulous substitute for stuffing. Many of the same flavors are in the pudding - it's just not necessary to roast a whole bird to get the full delight from the recipe.
Roast Turkey with Sweet Onion Jam
Hints of the Mediterranean come through in this rosemary and olive-studded focaccia.
Walnut and Sage Pesto Turkey Breast
For a fresh twist on classic Thanksgiving turkey, try this unique recipe. A garlic-infused jam forms a flavorful crust as the turkey roasts.
BBQ Spice-Rubbed Turkey Breast
Pesto is such an incredible spread. This one takes it a step further to make it perfect for Thanksgiving. It stars the flavors of sage and walnuts, in place of the traditional basil and pine nuts.
Fresh Grape Chutney
The spices are hallmarks of southwestern cooking -- cumin, chili powder, garlic, and pepper. The recipe is highly flavorful, easy and, delicious. The recipe for cranberry barbecue sauce is a great match for this turkey.
Sweet and Spicy Nuts
This chutney marries perfectly with the olive focaccia but is versatile enough to go with pork and chicken as well.
These nuts are a little spicy, a little sweet, a lot delicious.
Chili Chocolate Torte and Cinnamon Whipped Cream
This delicious gravy goes great with all sorts of different turkey recipe variations.
Earl Grey Pound Cake with Lemon Curd
Chocolate and chili are a standard combination for things that are not sweet, but in this recipe for a Chili Chocolate Torte, the warm spices add to the depth of the flavors and give it a mysterious little kick.
A very clever pairing of lemon and tea. It's a classic flavor match deliciously served up in a different treatment.
