Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. Today on FOX Denver, I share better-for-you recipes.
Single-serve apple crumbles
First add Autumn Glory apples to a large mixing bowl. These are by 5th generation Superfresh Growers in the Pacific Northwest and have a sweet cinnamon, caramel and apple cider-like flavor toss with cinnamon and Nutiva’s Organic refined coconut oil, which is versatile vegan cooking and baking swap for butter that’s cholesterol and dairy free and has a neutral flavor so you get the benefits of coconut oil without the coconut flavor. Transfer to a cast iron skillet and top with your crumble or granola. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 F. And Instead of ice cream, I top mine with Chobani Complete vanilla which is a new advanced nutrition yogurt that has 17 gram of protein, no added sugar and is lactose-free so it’s easier to digest – a great way to improve the nutrition and elevate this dessert.
I shared my vegan stuffing made with mushrooms, celery and the Little Northern Bakehouse Wide Slice bread which is gluten-free, plant-based and allergy friendly but same taste and texture of standard bread. You can find it in the freezer aisle of Safeway and Sprouts. Mushrooms are a great plant-based meat swap thats completely plant-based.
Elevated Mac N’ Cheese
My elevated mac n’ cheese is made with pureed butternut squash and three types of Wisconsin Cheese. Wisconsin is the state of cheese, they win more awards for their cheese than anywhere else in the world. You can find this recipe and perfect cheese pairings at Wisconsincheese.com.
60 second appetizer
Finally I have 60 second appetizer for busy thanksgiving day. The NEW Honest Earth Mashed Sweet Potatoes by Idaohan are made with simple real ingredients nothing artificial including brown sugar, real butter and sweet potatoes so they are rich in vitamins, minerals antioxidants and fiber. You can find them at Costco and Idahoan.com.
