Your Thanksgiving Line-Up Could Use More Greens
At Bowery, we’re all about experimenting with trending recipes, especially those that feature an ingredient we’ve never cooked with before. But when it comes to Thanksgiving, the classics take precedence. (We’re sorry, but baking a trendy sweet potato miso pie just isn’t the same thing as a traditional pumpkin or pecan. Your grandparents will definitely agree with us on that one.)
However, there is an area in which the Thanksgiving classics could use some help. Greens are missing in action at the dinner table. The most logical explanation? Finding fresh produce this time of year wasn’t an option until recently.
But times have changed, and in an effort to honor the classics, we’ve created a few recipes that infuse fresh produce into your holiday line-up.
Kick off a holiday party with stuffed mushrooms, enlivened with a vibrant arugula pesto. Bowery’s peppery arugula leaves give the pesto its kick, and toasted pecans bring balance with their sweet, nutty note.
Sausage and apple dressing gets extra depth from Bowery’s Kale Mix. Unlike the tough, mature-leaf variety, our tender kale leaves wilt quickly, so there’s no need for blanching or lengthy cooking. There’s a prep bonus too: the small leaves are recipe ready, with no fat stalks to wrestle off.
A festive citrus, pomegranate, and fennel salad showcases some of the season’s best produce. Bowery’s crisp and mild butterhead frames the sweet, tart and aromatic flavors perfectly. Although the salad is ideal for holiday dinners, it could also be your recovery dish after indulging in rich holiday foods.
