Don’t wait till the New Year to get off to a great start. Even though the holidays are in full swing, there are alternative options to a holiday menu that are just as comforting and tasty.
Amira Azimi from Top 8 Free Eats shows you that good, real, wholesome food should not only be celebrated during the holidays, but everyday.
A bright and fresh salad should accompany any feast, big or small! This winter bowl of greens has dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds to add richness to it. Top it with a liberal drizzle of the sweet, tangy honey mustard dressing and dig right in! See the recipe.
Not all of us are in appropriate weather to light up the grill and slather BBQ sauce over a handsome slab of brisket. What to do with it? Amira suggests to slow cook it! You’ll come home to a tender, juicy, ready-to-pull brisket that will be tasty however which way you choose to serve it. See the recipe.
You have been invited to a holiday dinner. Is it a potluck? Why not switch up the side dish game by bringing a non-gooey, non-casserole deep dish of roasted roots. With earthy aromas and flavors, your vegetarian, vegan, lactose intolerant, nut/wheat/fish allergic friends will thank you. See the recipe.
At any holiday party, there is bound to be cakes, bundts, souffles, and other treats! Since there will be plenty to slice into, top off all the desserts with a beautiful, royally red cran-raspberry sauce. Each bite will make everything right in the world. See the recipe.
What’s Christmas without candy canes? These vegan and gluten-free double chococlate chip peppermint cookies are ones to set out for Santa! Don’t forget the optional glass of milk if he gets thirsty! See the recipe.
