Thanksgiving Time!

In honor of the fact that Thanksgiving is one week away I thought I would share some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. I have made Thanksgiving dinner for my family the past couple of years and it is one of my favorite things. I love trying out a bunch of new recipes and giving my Mom a little break from cooking (although my Mom and Dad make the turkey together).

The first recipe I want to share is one of my favorite mashed potato recipes. I originally got it from Vegetarian Times Magazine.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large onion, diced (2 cups)
  • 5 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup unflavored rice milk (I use skim milk)
  • 2 Tbs. minced fresh thyme (I usually end up using dried thyme)

Directions:

1. Boil potatoes in enough water to cover 25 minutes, or until soft.

2. Meanwhile, sautè onion, oil, cumin, salt, and cayenne in skillet over low heat 30 minutes, or until browned. Stir in milk and thyme.

3. Drain potatoes, and mash. Whisk onion mixture into potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

I like this recipe a lot because it tastes so different than normal mashed potatoes. If anyone tries it out let me know if you liked it!
