We all have our favorite holiday foods, the once-a-year treats we look forward to every holiday season. Maybe it’s your aunt’s sweet potato casserole, your mother’s feast of the seven fishes or your sister’s death by chocolate. This month we revisit these three holiday classics and offer up newer versions that are decidedly delicious and happily nutritious.
Every family seems to have their own version of a sweet potato casserole and it usually involves brown sugar and a cloyingly sweet topping of marshmallows. Here we present two versions, both very much geared to the adult palate, but with flavors so yummy kids will go for them too. Both feature a spiral arrangement of thinly sliced sweet potatoes and turnips which looks pretty, and the addition of the turnips cuts some of the overwhelming sweetness. To this ribbon of festive color we add two distinctly different, but equally delicious flavor profiles.
With its nutty flavor and creamy texture, Jerusalem Artichoke Soup feels like an indulgence, but it disguises myriad health benefits in each velvety spoonful. This unusual fall tuber doesn’t turn many heads at the farmer’s market – it looks something like a gnarly potato – and while it won’t win a beauty contest, it does make an irresistible fall soup.
