Recipe: Paleo Thanksgiving

It’s the time of the year again when families all around North America reunite and celebrate the autumn harvesting season with Thanksgiving. If you’re hosting this year, it’s the perfect time to show your guests what Paleo is all about and that healthy food is in fact also really tasty.

The stars around Thanksgiving are the meat and vegetables usually seen in North-America at this time of the year. Turkey, beef, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, cranberries, mushrooms and apples are all standard fare.

What I’ve decided to do here is create a complete menu including the main Thanksgiving turkey with the sauce, stuffing and cranberry sauce as well as juicy rib roast, appetizers, vegetable sides and even a classic dessert, the pumpkin pie, all in Paleo fashion. Click Here For Recipes…

Recipe: Paleo Sweet Potato Casserole

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Make it your goal to make one new paleo dish for the holiday!

Makes a ton (i.e., 12 servings-ish)

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • juice of half an orange
Pecan topping
  • 3/4 cup chopped raw pecans
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp melted coconut oil
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. While water comes to a boil, peel and dice sweet potatoes into large chunks.
2. Add sweet potato chunks to water. Boil until fork tender–about 10 minutes.
3. Drain potatoes, then dump them back in the large pot with all the other ingredients. Using a hand mixer, blend until potatoes reach desired consistency and flavor. (You may like to add a little more coconut milk, spices, or syrup based on your taste.)
4. In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients until pecans are well coated.
5. Dump sweet potatoes into an oven safe dish and top with pecans.
6. Bake in preheated oven until topping is browned–about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
