With a global mix of flavors, our menu is perfect for adventurous cooks looking to break away from tradition
Rockwell-esque Thanksgiving dinner, serving up the same old turkey and trimmings year after year can get seriously tedious-especially for the cook.
So if you feel ready to veer from the well-trodden path of holidays past, we've put together a Thanksgiving menu like none you've ever seen before. Our centerpiece is roasted turkey marinated in a complex Mexican mole sauce and richly stuffed with masa harina, similar to what's pressed inside the corn husk wrapper of a tamale.
A sprinkling of Native American ingredients make apropos appearances as well. Sweet jícama adds crunch to a sprightly watercress and orange salad. Pine nuts get sautéed with elegantly slim haricots verts. Cranberries and zucchini are baked into tender mini-muffins. And chiles grace the table in the mole, stuffing, gravy, and a juicy pineapple and poblano salsa (standing in for cranberry sauce).
