Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up

It’s almost time for Thanksgiving, which is, in our opinion, the best food day of the year. It can also be one of the most tenuous, depending on whether your family adheres strictly to classic recipes or likes to experiment with trendier options. 

And while straightforward traditionalists might balk at the idea of getting creative, at Gardenuity, we are always looking to innovate. For those who are on the same wavelength–this round-up is for you. 

We tried to keep some of the classics–mashed potatoes will never go out style–but stepped them up with home-grown ingredients, fresh herbs, and even vegan options. We also compiled some guides on the history of the holiday, creating an unforgettable tablescape and traditions of gratitude to give you some talking points before the big meal.  

So go ahead and gobble up this content–we hope it leads to your best Thanksgiving yet. 


Traditional Fare

These herby mashed potatoes are the best ones we’ve ever made. We guarantee that even your stodgiest relative will want to make these a new Thanksgiving tradition. 

For those who want something a little greener than green bean casserole, this festive salad adds a pop of brightness without messing up your classic vibe.

Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of it all, we forget what is really important: gratitude. Our CEO and co-founder Donna Letier’s favorite tradition this time of year is her gratitude tree, which puts thankfulness front and center.
