What do you do for your Thanksgiving re: green things or health considerations?
Some people are all balance every day and some are more just casseroles is fine, thanks. We fall somewhere in the middle with a lot of “we do this every year” and me trying to shove new things into the mix. One thing that is normal for us is that my dad always does a “plain” green veg. Something free of bacon or cheese or condensed xx of yy soup, and it works so well with some of the heavier flavors we have on Thanksgiving.
This is that! A super simple, mostly pure veg. Lemon juice and olive oil and salt go so well with asparagus, and you can broil this right at the end of your meal prep right after you carve the turkey – seriously last minute stuff, even after the casseroles are reheated. The result is a charred lemon flavor that adds a ton to the asparagus without overpowering it, and the health benefits of, you know, anything green.
