If you're searching for Thanksgiving meals to go with your guests' diverse appetites, you're not alone. Thanksgiving Day, also known as turkey dinner, brings millions of families together. In fact, 10 countries celebrate the holiday.1 Airports, highways and dining rooms fill with people eager to arrive at the sweetest location, a home filled with warmth, care, thanksgiving snacks, vegan stuffing and, of course, thanksgiving desserts.
Organic Thanksgiving Recipes
Thanks to restaurants, you could save time, effort and lots of dirty dishes by going with Thanksgiving catering. But, you won't be able to treat your guests to your delicious homemade vegan stuffing, turkey dinner, sweet potatoes, veggies, gravy, cranberry sauce and Thanksgiving desserts that way.
You also won't know exactly what ingredients are going into the food. For instance, you won't know if Thanksgiving dinner catering has the healthy antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that you'll find in Herbal Goodness non-GMO herbs and natural fruit products.
So, pull out your apron and get ready to try these three organic Thanksgiving recipes that can leave your holiday guests showering you with compliments. First up, is the centerpiece of your turkey dinner.
- Sage Roasted Turkey2
Get a medium sized turkey (about 15 pounds). Two teaspoons of Herbal Goodness Papaya Leaves (the dried bulk kind), 20 fresh sage leaves, 1 Granny Smith apple, 1 onion, 1/4 cup of olive oil, half a stick of margarine, fresh ground pepper, seasoned salt and 1 cup chicken broth.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Get your thawed turkey. Then, remove the turkey's insides. Season the turkey with salt and pepper. Using your glove covered hands, rub the margarine over the turkey's entire outer surface. Stuff the inside of the turkey with the Herbal Goodness Papaya Leaves, evenly disbursed sage leaves and sliced apple and onion.
Cover the turkey in a large roaster. You can also use a baking pan. If you use a baking pan, cover the turkey with aluminum foil. Cook for three hours or until the skin is golden brown and the turkey is done. As a tip, it generally takes 15 minutes of baking or each pound of turkey.
Among the best Thanksgiving desserts is this apple, cranberry and raisin pie. Ingredients to make this delicious pie are:
- 2 pounds of Granny Smith apples
- 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup of raisins
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of Herbal Goodness Guayusa Leaves
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 cup cane sugar
- 1/2 cup margarine
- 2 organic pie shells
After you preheat your oven to 350 degrees, slice the apples. Blend the sliced apples, sugar, raisins, cranberries, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Add in ground Herbal Goodness Guayusa Leaves. Lightly grease the bottom of a baking pan with a nonstick grease. Layer with the first organic pie shell.
Fill the pan with the fruit mixture. Top with the second organic pie shell. Bake until the top pie shell is a golden brown. Remove, cool and serve.
Fig Pie Thanksgiving Desserts
As with the other Thanksgiving desserts, this fig pie is not only delicious but, also a beautiful table topper. It's pretty enough to be used as a centerpiece. Here's what you'll need for this pie:
- 2 organic pie shells

- 5 pounds of fresh figs that have been quartered and stemmed
- 2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 cup sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the figs and lemon juice in a bowl. In another bowl, stir the Herbal Goodness dried papaya leaves, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Blend in the figs and lemon juice mixture.
Place the figs mixture and Herbal Goodness dried papaya leaves mixture in a baking pan that's been layered with the first organic pie shell. Cover the figs mixture with the second organic pie shell.
