Recipe of the Month: Healthy Holiday Dishes

November 28, 2018 Outdoor Celebrations, Outdoor Cooking

Thanksgiving came and went, it did its damage and we have the extra pounds to prove it.  The average person gains between 7 and 10 pounds between turkey day and New Year’s Eve, so we thought we would serve up healthy holiday dishes for this month’s featured recipes!  These are dishes that you can indulge in without the guilt.

Mulled Wine Granita 

Low-fat Eggnog 

Sweet Potato Skins 

Avocado-Feta Dip 

Greek Layered Dip and Pita Chips (or you could substitute for cucumber slices and it’s even healthier)

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate and Hazelnut 

Warm Spinach Salad

Winter Fruit Salad

Mushroom Stuffed Pork Tenderloin  

Curried Sweet Potato Puree 

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey and Cinnamon 

Chocolate Avocado Pudding (we saved the best for last, trust us, it’s a gift in itself)

We know it’s a lot, but you need options, right?

Cheers and happy holidays!

Our Customers Love Us

We had very high expectations when Texas Custom Patios began construction on our back patio space. Because our roofline has a steep pitch and the odd location of our chimney, we were concerned about whether the addition would flow seamlessly with the rest of the roofline. Steven and his crews far exceeded our expectations. Professional and attentive to our concerns, Texas Custom Patios created the outdoor space we’ve always wanted – only better.
