Our Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

November 20, 2019



Primal-Style Roasted Turkey

It's that time of year when we practice gratitude, verbally attest to what we're thankful for in front of a dining table of witnesses, visit with friends and family we may not see any other time of year, and queue in long lines at the airport or inch forward in gridlock traffic for the opportunity to see those loved ones and declare those gracious words. If you're hosting a Thanksgiving feast at your home, it can also be an anxiety-riddled time when you're dashing about the house, dusting surfaces you may have never noticed before, defrosting an obnoxiously large bird that doesn't fit in any container you own, racing to the store for last-minute ingredients, and crafting a make-ahead plan that gets thwarted by last-minute deadlines at work, the kids' end-of-the-season soccer game, and those oh-so-tempting holiday happy hour invites.

Be the hostess with the mostest by simplifying thing a bit. Thanksgiving recipes can seem long and involved because a lot of it is from-scratch cooking—the meal only happens once a year after all. In our minds, taking a little help from some ready-made dressings, marinades, sauces, and condiments made with high-quality ingredients can make all the difference between you feeling frenzied or collected. The recipes below offer Thanksgiving recipes that strike that balance of homemade with a little help.

Easy, Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey

Easy, Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey

But first... the bird. No more turkey terrors when you follow this easy method for delivering a juicy and bronzed turkey to the feasting table. We injected our Avocado Oil & Vinegar Vinaigrette into the bird, let it marinate in the refrigerator overnight, then roasted it to perfecting the next day. This method means no messy, germ-infested turkey brining water to discard, and no fiddling with adjusting oven temperatures.

Primal-Style Roasted Turkey

Primal-Style Roasted Turkey

A “dry brining” process the day before and a creamy herb mix applied to the bird right before cooking offer a simple way to achieve the ultimate roasted look and juicy meat everyone will appreciate. Bonus: The baking powder causes the skin to puff up and crisp—like turkey chicharrones!

Recipe uses Primal Kitchen Mayo.

Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

This one takes a little extra time, but you'll be rewarded with a dish of snappy green beans, luscious garlic-studded creamy sauce (with no dairy!), fresh sauteed mushrooms, and home-fried onion strings. This is not at all like your aunt's casserole-from-a-can creation. Be sure to serve yourself a large portion before anyone else notices.

Recipe uses Primal Kitchen No-Dairy Garlic Alfredo and Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil.

Spicy Squash and Sausage Stuffing 

Sausage and Squash Stuffing

An essential side to every Thanksgiving table, stuffing combines oven-toasted bread cubes with herb-studded, butter-sliced veggies, and often a protein like crumbly, sage-flavored sausage. Make this savory, seasonal recipe using grain-free, gluten-free Simple Mills Artisan Bread Mix and Primal Kitchen® Avocado Oil.

Cheesy Keto Biscuits

Cheesy Keto Biscuits

Unless your grandma decides to bust out the big guns and make her from-scratch rolls, the bread served alongside the meal is often a store-bought afterthought that's never worth the carbs and gluten. This cheesy keto-friendly biscuit recipe can put an end to any anguish you might feel about indulging, and you might have to fend off any non-keto eaters to get one.

Maple Roasted Butternut Squash

Maple Roasted Butternut Squash

Roasting vegetables is a simple and simply delicious side-dish method. Instead of a cloying sweet potato casserole dotted with tanned marshmallows, why not simplify and roast some naturally sweet autumn squash? Scoop out the seeds and serve entire halves to your vegetarian guests, or dice into cubes to feed the entire table.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Many avoid the obligatory Brussels sprouts dish around the holidays, but it can often be the preparation method that goes wrong and enhances the bitterness and gaseous qualities of the baby cabbage. Roasting well-seasoned sprouts with plenty of olive oil or avocado oil is a fool-proof way to make them more flavorful, as is shaving them extra fine and serving them raw with goodies like bacon, pecans, and gorgonzola cheese.

Recipe uses Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil and Primal Kitchen Spicy Brown Mustard.

Spicy Turmeric Pumpkin Fries

Spicy Pumpkin Fries

If you're a fan of the sweet-savory-spicy combo, you're going to love this one. Instead of the usual potatoes, why not use seasonal pumpkin to create a unique and fun-to-pop fry that's a more upscale stand-in for cheese and crackers or overlooked dip and crudite served during cocktail hour.

Recipe uses Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil and Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo.

Pumpkin Spice Keto Donuts

Pumpkin Spice Keto Donuts

We crafted this sweet, cinnamon spiced keto-friendly treat to remind everyone that they can partake in the pleasures of autumn flavors without ditching their keto, Primal, or other clean eating habits.

Recipe uses Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray

Ultimate Primal Pumpkin Pie

Ultimate Primal Pumpkin Pie

Love it or hate it, pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving tradition. This version puts a Primal/paleo spin on the pie that's infinitely better. From the sweetened nutty crust to the silken, slightly sweet pumpkin interior, this recipe offers a maple caramel topping that even non-Primal eaters will love.
