Happy Thanksgiving from our families to yours! This is a wonderful time of year filled with gatherings of loved ones around the dinner table. Why not pick the healthiest options for your holiday spread? We wanted to take this opportunity to share some of our family favorite recipes that we love to make for Thanksgiving. These dishes are healthy, delicious, and are sure to delight the whole family.
Jules, as a vegetarian, finds holiday meals frustrating since they are so frequently centered around a meat dish. So she’s come up with a hearty salad featuring roasted beets. It works well as both a main dish or side dish, perfect for the veggie lovers in your life!

Roasted Beets and Arugula
Yield: 4 servings
8 golden beets (you can also use red beets if preferred)
5 TB. olive oil (reserve 1 TB. for drizzling)
½ cup red wine vinegar
1 shallot, thinly sliced
¼ cup parsley, chopped
2 cups fresh arugula
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place golden beets in a baking dish and drizzle with a little olive oil. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake for about 25 minutes or until soft. In a small bowl, combine remaining olive oil and the red wine vinegar. Remove beets from the oven and toss with sea salt and black pepper. Place cooked golden beets, shallot, and parsley in a large salad bowl, and toss with oil and vinegar mix. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to 3 days. Serve beets over arugula and garnish with additional fresh parsley.
