We are all getting ready to host family events and gather around the table for this holiday we call, “Thanksgiving”. With this in mind, what better time to share a great recipe? Of course, all of us are health-conscious (or at least trying to be) and the holidays present a number of challenges for maintaining healthy eating habits. I mean, who in their right mind would choose the steamed vegetable medley instead of the sweet potato casserole or say, “no thanks” to Aunt Suzy’s awesome cinnamon sweet rolls? Anyone? Bueller?? Of course, these things are super-yummy and we try to justify our decision by telling ourselves, “It is the holidays” or “I will get back on track in January”. While this sounds (and tastes) good at the time, derailing your journey to better health with over-indulgence will only bring you heartache, heartburn and guilt.
With that in mind, the recipe I am sharing today is a potato-substitute and a great savory side dish.
Do not look at me that way. I know this sounds iffy but give it a try. You will be pleasantly surprised.
