Michelle Dudash, chef & Registered Dietitian joined us today with her favorite way to pre-dinner on Thanksgiving, plus she has a make-ahead dessert that nearly everyone can enjoy.

Thanksgiving Bruschetta Board

Keep the Thanksgiving pre-dinner simple, but satisfying and crave-worthy for all eating preferences.

Start with a centerpiece with height, like grape clusters, orange halves, and sliced figs.

Serve three spreads:

Crunchy things for topping:

For the base:

Embellish the board with cured meats, if you wish, like smoked salmon, prosciutto, salami, and mortadella.

Cheese Board Hacks:

Vegan Chocolate Mousse “Shots” with Aquafaba:

This is an eggless chocolate mousse made fluffy with aquafaba.

You will not believe your eyes as you watch aquafaba, the cooking liquid from chickpeas, whip up into a light, puffy cloud, taking the place of eggs in this mousse. When you are craving a deep, dark chocolaty taste that you can lick off a spoon, this dessert is it!



Recipe Note: Portion into ¼ cup (45 g) shot glasses for extra portion control.
