Our Thanksgiving Menu

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’m already planning my menu. I’ll be making some of these recipes for my family, many of which are already traditions.
For super easy side dishes we love these Cauliflower (mock) Mashed Potatoes. They are so creamy and good, without any dairy or white potato.
This Butternut Squash with Ginger & Orange Marmelade is as fast and simple as it gets. Think of it like building a sundae. A scoop of butternut, a pinch of spice, a spoonful of warm marmalade, a handful of cashews. The kids can each get a little bowl and make their own! And when you see that nearly zero effort goes into actually cooking the squash, this one’s really a winner.
I never feel deprived from dairy when I have Asparagus with Raw Cashew Cream Dill Sauce. This older recipe is still one of my favorites. Creamy, tangy dill sauce is perfect for asparagus, or even as dip for carrots and cucumbers!
My laziness is starting to become a theme here :-) My favorite No-Bake Pumpkin Pie is so yummy, and keeps the oven free for other things, like turkey or this cake below.
Apple Spice Cake with Maple Candy Glaze may not be a Thanksgiving classic (yet 😉 but the spices and maple candy fit right in. And as you can see, this cake makes a great presentation.
Of course I also have all kinds of Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes in my cookbooks (on the right-hand side of my blog), and here are some recipes by my friends that look amazing too:

Meat Lovers’ Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Pumpkin Spice Chicken Cacciatore

Pumpkin Butter

    The asparagus looks very good and I just love how nice your pictures show the texture of the foods – the sauce and the pie are so creamy I would just extend my spoon through the screen!
