Thanksgiving Day 2023 Round Up: Indian-Inspired Recipes and Beyond

THIS THANKSGIVING I AM SO GRATEFUL. Mostly because I have more recipes to share. There are so many ways to bring a little bit of Indian to your table. Whether it's some garam masala sprinkled over your butternut squash before roasting or it's a fully Indian chaat made with sprouted dal and topped with our Tamarind Chutney. Our family grew up eventually making this holiday our own and we did so by incorporating Indian dishes into the Thanksgiving Day celebrations. We had to - most of us are vegetarian. With all my heart I believe that everyone should feel welcome to my table no matter how they eat. This stems from all of the ridicule I faced growing up being mostly vegetarian from my neighbors, but also from my own North Indian community - many of whom ate meat. Ironic, right? Enjoy this list of recipes and enjoy your family and friends during this delicious time of year.  Indulge, but then get back to your healthy eating like I will be doing.  

Easy Tandoori. In this recipe I use shrimp, but feel free to sub chicken or even use this as a base to marinade your turkey. Or do as my husband does - get some hens and use this base marinade for a punch of flavor. The spice blend you'll need is our Tandoori Masala. Feel free to pick up a jar of our Tikka Masala if you want some sauce after grilling. 

Oven Roasted Butternut Squash. This is hands down now my favorite recipe. Be sure to make a few batches because it will go fast. And, remember, just use a simple potato peeler to tackle the squash. The spice you'll need is our garam masala.

Sprouted Chaat with Tamarind Chutney. Make this salad and become the hero in your family. It's healthy, delicious, and unforgettable. Pair it with our tamarind chutney for a full Indian street food experience. 

Cranberry Chutney. The recipe that broke the internet. This is the only way you should be eating cranberries this Thanksgiving! 

Creamy Carrot, Ginger, Turmeric Soup: At once healing and delicious, put this on the list! 

And for dessert ... try our Chai Pie. You will need our chai masala for this one! 

Happy Thanksgiving, and happy cooking. I have so much in store for all of you! I cannot wait to unveil it all. For now, focus on that grocery list and let's get organized for the big day!
