Quick Meals for Pre-Thanksgiving Eating

Quick Meals for Pre-Thanksgiving Eating

Between planning your Thanksgiving meal, grocery shopping, brining, and making dishes ahead of time, actual eating—as in dinner, tonight—gets lost in the shuffle. At least it does for us (we had sushi delivered last night). So, if you want something easy that won't take too much time away from your Thanksgiving preparations, we have some ideas... Thinking about all the turkey, stuffing, and pie we'll be having in a few days makes us crave healthy food right now. We want simple vegetables, maybe some seafood, possibly something Asian... And we'd like it to be fast and not create too many dirty dishes. Here are some ideas: Sesame-Garlic Soba Noodles with Fried Egg Ginger and Cilantro Baked Tilapia Halibut, Spinach, and Tomatoes in Foil Packets Tomato and White Bean Panade (above, right) Quick and Easy Black Bean Soup DIY Miso Soup Herbed Lentils with Bacon Orzo Salad with Rosemary Almonds and Sundried Tomatoes Goi Chay: Vietnamese Vegetarian Salad Warm Wheat Salad, or Reverse Tabbouleh Kale Salad with Pecorino and Lemon Avocado Toast from Cafe Gitane (above, left) Barely Cooked String Beans What are you eating leading in to Thanksgiving?
