TCM Classics — This recipe originally ran on the site back in 2013, but we love it so much we decided to share it again, just in time for this year’s Thanksgiving festivities.

We’re grateful that the holidays are finally here. We hope you’ve enjoyed pulling a few of your favorite healthful Thanksgiving recipes from the site, whether two Michelin-starred Chef Josiah Citrin’s roasted sprouts or Eyeswoon’s baked delicata squash.
