Leek and Corn Stuffed Peppers

Corn and Leek Stuffed Peppers

For these festive leek and corn stuffed peppers, try to use fresh corn if you can. In the late fall or early winter, organic frozen corn will do just fine.  This dish makes an attractive centerpiece for special occasion dinners like Thanksgiving and Christmas.

“Three Sisters” Stew

Three sisters stew recipe

Here’s a great main dish option for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s somewhat like chili, though more about the squash than beans. In Native American mythology, squash, corn, and beans are known as of the “three sisters” — the very crops that the harvest festival of Thanksgiving is meant to celebrate! If you bake your pumpkin or squash a day ahead, the stew will come together in a snap. And if you’re not accustomed to dealing with winter squash, or don’t have the time, see the shortcut following the recipe. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky.

They’re a perfect companion to hearty vegetable or bean stews, and a nice addition to Thanksgiving or Christmas menus. Or, just enjoy them for breakfast or as a not-too-sweet companion to a cup of coffee or tea. This makes about a dozen; or more if making smaller biscuits. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→
