I'm still looking into it. Don't know yet.

I do roasted Brussels sprouts with a balsamic vinegar glaze and cranberries, it is delicious and pretty. Roasting the veggies makes them sweeter, if your kids won't eat brussel sprouts then you can do pretty much the same thing with asparagus, broccoli or cauliflower.

I also like to do mashed sweet potatoes. you just peel and cut the sweet potatoes, put them in a heavy sauce pan with a tiny amount (about 1/2 a cup of cream (you can use vegan substitutes like soy milk) and butter or olive oil. Just a table spoon or two. Then you cook them over low heat for about 20 or 30 minutes, I just test them until done and mash them up. You can add maple syrup or brown sugar, there are a lot of things you can do with this recipe. Just plain old baked sweet potatoes are really good too and so healthy.

I hope you find some great dishes to fix! I used to be a vegan. It was hard to find good places to eat! But the ones we found were good! :)

As a vegetarian, non-vegetarians say, "Oh, just bring the salad." LOL... As if eating healthy means eat only salads. So, I've been experimenting with more live/raw food dishes and vegan dishes. With two children at home, the food's got to taste great, look great and be child friendly. So, what's your Healthful, good tasting dish for this Thanksgiving?
