Pumpkin Tahini Hummus

Need a snack while watching the game or while the main course is still roasting in the oven? Get the party started with our Pumpkin Tahini Hummus! This dip is made with white cannellini beans instead of chickpeas to really bring out the seasonal pumpkin flavor. The smokiness is great for pairing with hearty root veggie chips or Honeycrisp apples. 

Think fall: hot drinks, spiced foods, cozy sweaters, and changing leaves. This (vegan) soup captures the essence of Thanksgiving with every spoonful. Packed with Vitamins A & C, potassium, and fiber, this squash soup makes a great start to the meal, making mouths water and taste buds sing! We recommend topping it with sesame or pumpkin seeds for a little seasonal fun. 

Tahini Cornbread Stuffing

Thanksgiving isn't complete without stuffing. Tahini Cornbread Stuffing is unique take on your run-of-the-mill stuffing. It’s filled with holiday classics like onion, celery, garlic, sage, thyme, and butter. However, the addition of tahini adds a  nuttiness we never knew we were missing!

Roasted Cauliflower With Harissa Tahini Sauce 

Spice up your Thanksgiving side dishes with this roasted cauliflower recipe. It’s simple enough for a weeknight, but fancy enough for guests, or your holiday table. The cauliflower gets roasted in a super hot oven until it’s deeply golden brown. And while that’s cooking, easily whip up the spicy tahini sauce in the food processor or blender! This vibrant, herb-filled sauce gets its kick from harissa – a warm, spicy, North African condiment filled with a blend of chiles, garlic, oil, and acid. It makes a great drizzle or dip, and pairs beautifully with the roasted cauliflower and a handful of fresh herbs and lemon wedges.

Then finish it off with a sprinkle of freshly toasted nuts and chopped herbs for a fall dish your family will be talking about until the next family get-together.

Seeking a fresh take for your Thanksgiving potato dishes? Look no further. With so many different ways to prepare, potatoes allow you to create your own adventure. Elevate your potato dish with a honey and tahini glaze for a flavorful and innovative side dish that pairs perfectly with any savory protein. We love this recipe because it’s quick and simple, allowing you to keep your focus on the more complex recipes.

Silan Pecan Pie

No holiday dessert spread is complete without a pecan pie. The melt-in-your-mouth chewy texture makes for a delectable finale to your Thanksgiving feast. Subbing our silan date syrup to the filling mixture creates a beautifully rich pecan pie that your guests will go nuts for. (pun intended!) This recipe is great for a quick and easy filling to a pre-made pie crust. However, if you’re feeling ambitious, make your own.
