PCRM Thanksgiving Menu

Delicata Squash

PCRM – Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (Dr. Barnard’s group) – has a great whole food, plant-based and oil-free menu for Thanksgiving on their website. Everything from soup to dessert.

The menu is:

  • Creamy Mushroom Bisque
  • Crispy Sage Mashed Sweet Potatoes
  • Delicata Squash Stuffed with Holiday Rice
  • Save-Cash Quinoa Loaf
  • Apple Crisp

They also have pointers to other recipes – like Zesty Cranberry Sauce or Pumpkin Custard Pie. They both sound yummy.

This is an Apple Crisp recipe from Dr. McDougall that is great, but sweetened with maple syrup.

Preparation Time:  20 minutes
Cooking Time:  40-50 minutes
Servings:  9

4 large firm apples, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup raisins or currents
¾ cup Grape Nuts cereal
¾ cup rolled oats
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup maple syrup
2/3 cup apple juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the apple slices in a bowl and toss with the lemon juice and cinnamon.  Place in a non-stick square baking dish and sprinkle with the raisins or currents.

Mix the Grape nuts, rolled oats and cinnamon in a separate bowl.  Stir in the maple syrup.  Spread evenly over the apples.  Whisk the apple juice with the cornstarch until well mixed, then pour over the apples and topping.  Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until apples are tender.

Serve warm or cold.

Enjoy a whole food, plant-based and oil-free holiday this year. You’ll feel better.
