The meaning of Thanksgiving is more than just a long a weekend and a delicious turkey dinner. Since I arrived in this country I've learned a lot about this important holiday. It marks a monumental moment in American history. I celebrate every year with my family and give thanks for our many blessings. As always, I like to make sure my menu satisfies all appetites without straying too far from the traditional. I like adding a few of our delicious Latin flavors to a few dishes. The turkey is the star; we also need plenty of veggies like Brussels sprouts, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and sweet potato.
Like a good Latina, I like there to be leftover so if anyone wants seconds, they can have it. I never worry about leftover because there are plenty of ways to use them. I like preparing a big turkey for Thanksgiving so that there are plenty of leftovers for us to continue enjoying the next day. In searching for nutritious ways to enjoy these leftovers, I found a way to use leftover turkey and vegetables to prepare a delicious guilt-free pizza. The foundation is made with cauliflower instead of flour topped with turkey, broccoli and other vegetables.
