Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday 23rd November with turkey, stuffing and plenty of pumpkin pie. But it’s not just our friends across the pond who will be marking the occasion. For anyone who loves good food, Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse to join your loved ones around the table for a delicious feast.
Stuffed Turkey Breasts with Butternut Squash and Figs
Sometimes getting hold of a whole fresh turkey for Thanksgiving can be a challenge here in the UK. So instead, why not try these delicious stuffed turkey breasts. The squash and fig filling keeps everything juicy, and means that you don’t have to worry about making any extra stuffing.

Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash

Sweet Potato Casserole
Sweet potato casserole is a Southern classic. But with its sickly mix of marshmallows, butter and cream, the traditional dish is hardly a health food. Enter this grain-free version. The caramelised nut topping and creamy sweet potatoes ensure it stays super rich, but without any refined sugar or dairy.

Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie
What would Thanksgiving be without a pumpkin pie? And this healthy dairy-free and grain-free version means that nobody has to miss out. Soaked cashews give the filling it’s creamy texture, while almond flour ensures a crispy crust. Top with a dollop of whipped coconut milk for even more decadence.
