Ask the Chef - Healthy Thanksgiving Dishes

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Nov 24, 2014 6:41:22 AM

Q: What are some good healthy dishes for Thanksgiving?

A: What better time of year to show off your superfood prowess than one of the years' most ultimate foodie festivities! Here at Navitas, we have so many delicious options all ready for your kitchen endeavors in our recipe bank, that frankly, choosing a list might just be the most daunting task of all! Nevertheless, here are some of my personal favorite Thanksgiving recipes, each boosted with the finest in nutrient-dense foods:

Yacon Roasted Yams
Yacon syrup's apple-like caramel flavor is a shoe-in for the holiday table … it pairs exceptionally well with roots, tubers, fruits and spices, and is a wonderful way to cut sugar without losing sweetness! By creating a simple yacon glaze for perfectly cooked yams in this recipe, you can pretty much guarantee you'll be met with clean plates at the end of the meal.

Incan Pilaf
With a quinoa and corn base (that's boosted with chia seeds), this protein-rich side says “harvest†like no other. Bonus: it goes spectacularly with the Yacon Roasted Yams.

Superfood Stuffing
Oh yeah! What's normally the enemy dish of the calorie-conscious, is turned here into a brag-worthy nutritious paradise! Packed with dried fruits like goji's and apricots, and healthy seeds like hemp and chia, this stuffing is loaded with flavor and is a real crowd-pleaser.

Chia Cranberry Sauce
You've got enough to do in the kitchen already, so take advantage of this quick “cheat†for flavorful superfood cranberry sauce, that uses chia seeds to “gel†the ingredients together in the refrigerator, instead of the stove! Extra bonus: dried goji berries are plumped up with cranberry juice to act like flavorful antioxidant-rich treats that pair fantastically with other Thanksgiving dishes.

Baby Spinach & Mulberry Salad with Maple Vinaigrette
With all the amazing fall dishes to make, it's easy to forget about getting in some greens on the table! Create a big bowl of gorgeous autumn salad that's tossed with pears, sweet mulberries, and a maple-mustard dressing to help balance out some of the richer dishes.

Black Lentils with Gojis & Brussels
Doing a plant-based Thanksgiving? (Or have a vegetarian guest on the invite list?) Leave the fake turkey at the store, and make this savory, satisfying entrée instead. A medley of textural black lentils, roasted Brussels sprouts, softened goji berries, walnuts and more - vegan or not - everyone will want some of this epic dish.

Pumpkin Mousse Cake
A modern riff on Pumpkin Pie, this exceptionally creamy dessert is a swoon-worthy way to end a holiday meal, that also secretly keeps excess sugars at bay. Plus, you don't need any of your valuable oven real estate to make this dessert, which can also be assembled a day ahead of time.

Happy Thanksgiving!
