I know I said I’d have this recipe to you by Monday, but sometimes life gets in the way. This weekend it did so in the form of internet/phone access, or lack there of, and as such I could not successfully prepare this post for you.
I guess I could have just shared the recipe and said nothing to you, but that would’ve been rude. I love
rambling on and on about food chatting with you all about new recipes, especially ones as epic as this one. How on Earth could you get the full, dramatic effect of Roasted Root Vegetable Crostini with Cranberry Relish if I didn’t shout about it for a few paragraphs?
After all, it’s going to be your new favorite Thanksgiving appetizer!
Yes. I said it. Thanksgiving. I’m doing it, friends: I’m beginning the gauntlet of food Olympics we call Thanksgiving right now. I was going to wait until November hit, but if I don’t start right this minute
I will burst how will I provide you with enough recipes to plan and execute the best Thanksgiving ever?
For all I know, you may have begun planning for this feast weeks ago, in which case I am terribly behind and I apologize for being late to the planning party.
To kick things off, I thought I’d share with you this recipe for Roasted Root Vegetable Crostini, a hearty, vegetarian appetizer that even the carnivores in your family will devour!
Imagine bruschetta but better: toasted slices of French bread, roasted seasonal vegetables like mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, and butternut squash, all brought together with the crisp, clean flavors of a fresh cranberry relish.
This appetizer is flavorful without being overly rich or decadent, which means it will leave you with plenty of room to enjoy the main meal. If you simply chop the vegetables, slice the bread, and make the relish the night before, this appetizer comes together in no time on Thanksgiving!
Also, I think it might actually be vegan?
I don’t know if that’s ever happened here on the blog. I adore butter, and bacon, and cheese, but I think I may have just created an absolutely dynamite vegan Thanksgiving appetizer.
Thanksgiving Fest 2014 is off to a fabulous start, but just wait ’til you see what else I’ve got up my “Holiday Entertaining” sleeves.
I’ll give you a hint: cheesy mashed potatoes, green bean casserole sans condensed soup, and a bourbon-laced side dish.
