Last Minute Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas from the Sustainable Cook

November 18, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Thanksgiving is less than a week a way.  Many of us have ideas of what to make; others have a vague sense that the meal will contain turkey and something.  What that something will be, they are not quite sure.  Over the years, for the Local Beet, I’ve provided many recipes suitable for this time of year.  I’ve collected many of my recipes for Thanksgiving below.  All the recipes consist of items available NOW from you CSA box, at area farmer’s markets, or at places like Green Grocer Chicago.   Have a happy, sustainable, local holiday again this year.



  1. I don’t think I’ve ever found a Thanksgiving recipe I didn’t love!
