5 Five-Ingredient Holiday Recipes

  |     |   Life at Country Club Vista

If you're into cooking, you know that the holiday season is the time of year when you have a cornucopia of vast varieties of in-season foods at your fingertips. Take advantage of that abundance by preparing these five recipes, each of which only requires five ingredients.

Holiday Turkey

You will probably be serving turkey at your holiday gathering, but it need not be a cumbersome task. In your recipe use just five ingredients, which are: a whole or boneless turkey, thyme, rosemary, sea salt and freshly ground pepper. If you enjoy other spices, you can add them too. Season your turkey with these ingredients and pop it in the oven!

Cranberry Sauce

This side dish that's commonly served alongside turkey doesn't need to come from a can. In just a few minutes you can make it homemade, using fresh cranberries, apple juice, orange zest, honey and a dash of cinnamon.

Brussels Sprouts

If you haven't tried fresh Brussels sprouts, you're missing out on an unbelievably great taste. Wash the Brussels sprouts, then cut them in half. Sauté them face down in olive oil with a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Add a bit of spice such as rosemary. Drizzle oil over them and place them in the oven for cooking.

Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

Nothing provides more comfort than sweet potatoes or yams. Create a healthy and satisfying dish by peeling then slicing fresh sweet potatoes. Arrange the pieces in a glass baking dish. Add coconut oil, ghee, sea salt and cinnamon. Bake until the potatoes are soft.

Apple Crisp

So many types of apples are readily available in the winter. Buy whatever variety you enjoy, such as granny smith, Fuji, honeycrisp, jonagold or braeburn. Slice or cube the apples, then place them in a pie dish. Add coconut oil, cinnamon, walnut pieces and almond flour.

You'll need a cozy kitchen where you can prepare and serve these seasonal recipes. If you're looking for apartments in Flagstaff, call our office today to see which floor plans are still available.
