With Turkey (or Tofurkey?) Day right around the corner, we thought we’d share three braces-friendly side dish recipes that can be easily incorporated into your holiday menu. Scroll down to view the recipes in the order written, or use the links below to skip to the recipe of your choosing:
If you’re wanting to add some pizzazz to an otherwise traditional (read: predictable) Thanksgiving meal, this butternut squash with fragrant Indian spices is sure to fit the bill. Best part? It can be made a day ahead and then reheated in the microwave before serving.
Next up on our list is a quick and easy roasted mushroom recipe that would be right at home on the holiday table. The photo alone has our mouths watering—we may not be able to wait until next Thursday to make this one ourselves.
The final braces friendly recipe we have for you today is a fresh cranberry sauce that is not only delicious, but is so easy to make that you won’t even consider going back to the canned stuff. This is another time saver that can be made ahead and either served at room temperature or heated over medium heat in a saucepan before serving. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days and 2 months in the freezer (if freezing, thaw overnight in the fridge).
Whether you add these dishes to your holiday menu or stick with your own family’s traditional recipes, all of us here at Vancouver Orthodontic Specialists, PLLC would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
