For many, the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is the side dishes. But butter-rich mashed potatoes and other traditional dishes are heavy, high-carb, and not particularly nutritious. No wonder you feel like you’re in a “food coma” after dinner.
In next month’s Thrive Kitchen class, Creative Thanksgiving Sides, we will learn to put some new twists on traditional favorites and create more interesting side dishes that are lighter and healthier too.
Class will be held on Wednesday, November 7th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the Thrive Kitchen at Kaiser Permanente Mission Bay Medical Office Building, 1600 Owens Street in San Francisco. At the Thrive Kitchen, we emphasize having fun while getting a hands-on introduction to healthy cooking techniques.
These are the nutritious, crowd-pleasing side dishes we’ll be learning to cook:
- Chipotle Cranberry Sauce
- Thanksgiving Kale Salad with Roasted Root Vegetables
- Parsnip-Pear Bisque
- Mashed Cauliflower with Umami Gravy
- Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts
Cost is $30 for Kaiser Permanente members and $40 for non-members and includes the meal we cook together. Registration is open and advance sign-ups are required. To reserve a space, email SFHealthEd@kp.org or call (415) 833-3450.
