The Gobbler is a great way to use your Thanksgiving leftovers. You can substitute cranberry sauce for the tapenade and day-old green bean casserole for the fried shallots and green beans. But what makes this recipe great is that it gives you the opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving year-round.
Chris Prosperi’s Spicy Chicken Quesadilla
Faith and Chris are big believers in loading your quesadilla up with all the veggies you love, so make these your own. Serve with your favorite salsas (homemade or store-bought, we don’t care). The idea is just to have fun together.
Masala-Crusted Salmon (Blackened Fillets with Cumin, Coriander, and Paprika)
Cumin and coriander provide deeply earthy flavors, while paprika and red chilli powder combine to give heat and a beautiful brick color to the fillets. Drizzled with mint chutney, the buttery salmon flakes easily with a fork and melts in your mouth. The best thing about this recipe is that it’s remarkably simple to make. Open up a bottle of wine, get a nice sear on the salmon, and dinner will be ready in half an hour.
Faith’s Hearty Curried Lentil Vegetable Soup
This is one of Faith’s favorite go-to soup-as-a-meal recipes. She prefers red lentils, simply because she finds them beautiful, but you could use brown lentils if that’s what you have or what you like. As a last step, she uses an immersion blender to thicken the soup, but you don’t have to if you like the texture of the plump cooked lentils as they are.
Hickory-Smoked Beer Can Chicken
Put a classic on the grill for Father’s Day: Beer can chicken. In this recipe, the beer steams while the chicken roasts and absorbs aromatic smoke.
