There's no shame in not eating turkey at Thanksgiving, or ham at Christmas-that is, when you have Butternut Squash Vegducken. This vegetable stunner of an entrée is an entirely meatless take on turducken, with butternut squash, eggplant, and zucchini filling in for the usual suspects. An added bonus: the cheesy mushroom stuffing makes use of leftover vegetable scraps, making the dish #wasteless
Feng Shui Tip– Autumn This time of year is represented by bringing in the harvest. It is the time when we decide what to keep and what to throw away. The Metal Element resonates with autumn. Help support and nourish this energy by strengthening and balancing the Metal Energy in your space.
One of the biggest challenges when cooking a turkey is the legs take longer than the breasts. The breasts dry out in the oven while you're waiting for the legs to cook. I like to push stuffing between the turkey's skin and breasts, increasing the thickness of the breasts so they take the same time to cook as the legs. The result? Juicy turkey all round!
