A combination of Caribbean and non Caribbean recipes to carry you through this thanksgiving, a combination of sides, mains and dessert! (some are vegan friendly too).
As we are a few days shy of thanksgiving and the holiday season is just around the corner, I felt it was appropriate to drop this thanksgiving roundup.
This roundup covers a variety of recipes that I believe you will find beneficial for thanksgiving.
Many of my readers are Caribbean people living the United States who celebrate thanksgiving, this includes eating traditional American thanksgiving dishes but also want to mix elements of their own Caribbean culture into the celebration.
This roundup covers both elements, even if you're not from the islands, there something for everyone.
I've made sure to include vegan friendly options for my meatless audience.
Definitely a must try recipe for thanksgiving and a great way to wow your guests.
Just when you thought sweet potatoes (yams) couldn't taste more amazing, candied style sweet potatoes with the combination of additional sweetness, spices and made on the stovetop!
Here is another alternative to a whole turkey, ground turkey that is generously seasoned and slow cooked for several hours. A budget friendly recipe!
Completely vegan friendly sweet potato pudding, how do you like yours? with or without the custard top? However you prefer yours this recipes provides you with both options so it's a win win situation.
Don't like sweet potatoes? No problem! How about some mashed plantains instead?
Kick the store brought French fried onions to the kerb and instead try this recipe instead.
Homemade French fried onions that aren't deep fried...I repeat they ARE NOT deep fried, totally air fried, add them to any of your holiday dishes.
There would be no green bean casserole without the French fried onions, this one is so flavoursome, vegan friendly and a must have side dish for the whole family.
Hassle free stew turkey neck recipe, would you be willing to trade in your dutch pot for this slow cooker rendition?
No need to baby sit your dutch pot, the meat is browned, toss it in your slow cooker and the work is done! Just what you need for the busy holiday season.
The title says it all, you didn't think I would leave my meatless readers hanging, this nut roast is the perfect alternative to turkey, you won't feel leftout. It's so tasty that even your meat eating guests will want some too.
Yes, you read that right, sweet potato in mac and cheese? Don't knock it until you have tried it. Again, another steal for the vegans but nevertheless an equally delicious side dish.
Some people believe that cornbread has no business being sweetened, but I say there's room for both the sweetened and unsweetened version. This is definitely a cornbread for those of you who have a sweet tooth.
Who said you need a whole turkey for a perfect thanksgiving? Not me! Turkey steaks are the perfect budget friendly way forward. Caribbean style, tasty and much easier and less stressful than preparing a whole bird.
One of my most popular Caribbean holiday side dishes especially for my folks in the beautiful Virgin Islands. You love it, I love it even more!! Potato stuffing is a must have side dish, with so much positive feedback and happy tummies, you would be crazy not to make it!
You gotta have some green vegetables on the table right? Have about some Brussel sprouts, these are air fried to perfection or steamed vegetables.
The Caribbeans answer to collards greens, there's room for both on the dinner table but this popular island side dish is a readers favourite for a reason.
Don't be fooled by the appearance, while the cheese may not give off that aesthetically pleasing melted cheese look, ya girl went hard with the flavour and trust me good tasting vegan cheese is a dime in a dozen.
This macaroni pie tastes amazing, I'm not just saying that either. Another vegan side dish to try!
Who knew that adding a hint of nutmeg to your sweet potato mash would be such a game changer? Sweet potato mash is a side dish must have!!
Another soup for the vegans, this vegan friendly soup is becoming increasingly popular with my recipes and perfect for the meatless crowd during the holidays.
Who knew that sorrel could make the best sweet and spicy wings. All things sorrel is a must during the holidays, so go ahead and try these wings!
Got leftover turkey and don't know what to do with it? How about whipping up some turkey fried rice?
