Thanksgiving Healthy Options

I will be back to game day healthy eating after Thanksgiving.  I thought a couple of healthier recipes for Thanksgiving Day dinner would be better for the next couple of weeks.

Healthier Stuffing


1 yellow onion, finely chopped,  1 red bell pepper, finely chopped,  2 stalks celery, chopped,  1 package mushrooms, roughly chopped,  1 head cauliflower, pulsed  in food processor to make pellets,  1 apple, finely chopped,  2 tbls. minced fresh thyme,  2 tbls. minced fresh sage,  1 tsp. salt,  3/4 pound turkey sausage, cooked and chopped or sliced,  1-2 tbls. Smart Balance,  1 egg. beaten


  • Preheat  oven to 350 degrees
  • Coat a large pot with oil spray
  • Add onion, pepper, and celery and sauté for 6 minutes.  Add mushrooms and sauté another 3 minutes.  Add cauliflower, apple, thyme, sage, salt, and sausage.  Mix well to combine everything and cook for 3 more minutes.  Turn off heat.
  • Add Smart balance and mix.  Add egg and mix.
  • Transfer to baking pan that has been misted with oil spray and bake  in  oven for 40 minutes until top is brown.
