Pork and Broken Rice Cabbage Rolls

Louis has found cabbage rolls across several cuisines, however, and adopts a Far East approach here. Savoy cabbage leaves have distinct curly edges and a bumpy, web-like texture that make them perfect for stretching over the pork filling.

Garlic-Caper Roasted Mushrooms Traditional recipes

Garlic-Caper Roasted Mushrooms

Roasted mushrooms are a revelation—intensely savory yet still tender and juicy. The mushrooms transform again once tossed with garlic butter, briny capers, and fresh lemon. Use cremini or baby bella mushrooms here—white button mushrooms are too mild. Dress the mushrooms right after roasting so the mixture stays vibrant.

Fresh ginger, red Fresno chile, and pomegranate don’t usually appear on the Thanksgiving table, but we love how they transform simply roasted squash into a dish with tingly heat and pops of color.

Creamed Greens with Farro Traditional recipes

Creamed Greens with Farro

This dish takes its cues from classic creamed spinach and raises the bar with braised mixed greens, whole-grain farro, and a crisp panko crust. Hearty yet not heavy, and gorgeous straight out of the oven, this is the kind of side that looks and feels holiday special. Swiss chard and dark, bumpy lacinato kale both wilt down fairly quickly; their texture and vibrancy will stand out once combined with the creamy three-cheese sauce.

In addition to getting the food into the oven in stages, you should also prep the food in stages to make most efficient use of your time.

To easily skin the drumsticks, use a paper towel to grab an edge of the skin on the fat end, then pull down.
