Maple-Sriracha Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberry Wild Rice

Maple-Sriracha Roasted Brussels Sproouts2 randy clemens

While I wish I could take all the credit for the unique blend of flavors here, the inspiration for the Brussels sprouts came from a restaurant in NYC called the Vanderbilt. I was going to rework their recipe as a side dish, but after taking my first bite of this new version, I realized that serving the Brussels sprouts atop my favorite wild rice dish would create a stunning entrée.

Easy Vegan Pumpkin or Squash Pie

Easy vegan pumpkin pie

I find that the smooth, sweet butternut puree tastes just as good as sugar pumpkin in the classic pumpkin pie (vegan style)—perhaps even better! Once you’ve got the squash or pumpkin baked, which I do ahead of time, making this nourishing pie is a snap. It contains no eggs or dairy, of course, but no one will notice the difference.

Walnut-Apple Stuffing

Walnut-Apple Stuffing recipe

If your Thanksgiving company includes eaters of mixed persuasions, vegetarians and vegan guests won’t want to eat stuffing that’s been cooked in the bird. Of course, you need not wait for special occasions to make this. Everyone loves stuffing! Of course, you can use a gluten-free bread if need be. The sweet apple and red onion contrast nicely with the herbal notes. more →
