Top green cooks transform Thanksgiving dishes

November 7th, 2010

Myra Goodman is a founder of Earthbound Farm
What if we could reinvent Thanksgiving Day’s traditional dishes? Could we replace baked yams topped with melty marshmallows with something natural and organic? Could we convert Mom’s canned green bean casserole into a healthier, Earth-friendly dish – complete with crunchy onion bits on top? What if we asked some of the best-selling organic cookbook writers in the country to overhaul our Thanksgiving table?

Myra Goodman’s Easy Cranberry Sauce

November 18th, 2009

Look for organic cranberries for this T-day staple. They are among the fruits, which the Environmental Working Group recommends you should seek out as organic, because the conventionally grown berries can have pesticide residues. Homemade cranberry sauce is great any time of year with roast chicken, pork, turkey or a vegetarian meal. The tartness of the soft cranberries in this sauce is balanced by sweet orange juice.

When the dinner is for adults, a splash of port adds a special treat. Since fresh cranberries are not available year-round, buy an extra bag or two in the fall and stick them in the freezer. This recipe is easily doubled or even tripled. Makes about 2 cups. — Myra Goodman

Myra Goodman’s Flaky Whole-Grain Pie Crust

November 18th, 2009

The chefs at the Farm Stand use whole-wheat pastry flour and rolled oats in lieu of refined white flour whenever possible in our recipes. Creating a delicious-tasting, light and workable pastry crust was a challenge, but we think the result is spectacular.

Myra Goodman’s Pumpkin and Winter Squash Pie

November 18th, 2009

I look forward to seasonal food this time of year for many reasons, and the amazing flavor of winter squash is a big part of what I love about food in this season. I always choose organic winter squashes because they are grown in a way that protects the environment, but also because non-organic squashes are often treated with a petroleum-based fungicidal wax to extend shelf-life. These waxes are really difficult to remove and are absorbed into the squash’s otherwise delicious flesh — Myra Goodman

Myra Goodman’s Sweet Pie Crust

November 18th, 2009

This rich, buttery pastry crust is light and tender, perfect for fruit pies and tarts. I find the food processor technique the quickest and least messy method for making pie dough. It’s almost foolproof — just be sure not to overwork the dough in the machine or the pastry will be tough. — Myra Goodman

See directions below recipe on making pastry by hand. Makes enough for 2 single-crust pies or 1 double-crust pie, 9 to 10 inches in diameter.
