Fennel and Orange Salad
The classic flavor combination of fennel and orange makes a wonderful winter salad.
Steamed Brussels Sprouts
These steamed brussels sprouts are glossed with butter and flecked with chives.
The canned sardines are coated in cornmeal and fried up in minutes for a delicious appetizer.
This cornbread strikes the right balance between tender and crumbly. To use it in a Thanksgiving stuffing, reduce the sugar to 2 tablespoons.
Crisp Brussels Sprout Leaves
In this simple Thanksgiving side dish, roasting brussels sprouts brings out their nuttiness. Tangy Pecorino Romano cheese adds extra depth.
Green Beans with Vinaigrette
These fresh green beans help balance out the richness of the rest of the Thanksgiving meal.
Steamed Littleneck Clams
These Southern-style steamed clams are great starters for your a seafood dinner.
No white potatoes here! Just sweet potatoes and cauliflower mashed until silky and amped up with milk, butter, and a touch of nutmeg and cayenne.
Glazed Pearl Onions
The longer those cook, the sweeter and more caramelized they will become. A little balsamic vinegar is a nice touch to add.
