Herbed Roasted Turkey
This traditional holiday bird brings much more to the table than just great taste. Our version, which is packed with protein, is rubbed with a blend of parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, and garlic.
All it takes is a sprinkling of salt and pepper to enhance the earthy flavors of the carrots in this simple side dish.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Grapes with Walnuts
The red grapes' sweetness brings out the nutty notes in the sprouts. Walnuts can be swapped for almonds or pecans.
Skip the canned variety and whip up this naturally delicious chunky cranberry sauce instead. Pears and dried cherries give it an extra touch of natural sweetness, allowing you to cut down on added sugar.
Fennel and Orange Salad
The classic flavor combination of fennel and orange makes a wonderful winter salad.
Warm Fennel-and-Parmesan Dip
A warm, golden dip always tempts guests to dig in. This one uses Parmesan cheese to season caramelized fennel and garlic.
Mixed Chicories with Persimmons
Winter lettuces are heartier than most everyday salad greens and have a pleasantly bitter flavor. They stand up well to crunchy walnuts and sweet-tart winter fruits.
Green Beans with Creamy Mushrooms and Shallots
This twist on a standard green bean casserole is elevated to creamy, delicious heights, thanks to thick low-fat Greek yogurt.
Wild Rice with Dried Fruit and Nuts
This wild rice side dish goes well with roasted chicken, turkey, or braised pork shoulder.
