November 17, 2022 – The time-honored tradition of a turkey with all of the fall-harvest trimmings is about to get a delicious makeover with a taste of the tropics. Food blogger Relle Lum brings the exotic flavors of her native Hawai’i to the table with her suggestions for the ultimate Hawaiian Thanksgiving spread.
Lum’s Hawaiian Thanksgiving offers 21 recipes that bring the best of the Islands’ flavors to the mainland’s groaning boards. Although the flavors are far from the typical Holiday fare, the ingredients are easily accessible across the country. Cooks can bring a sunny vibe to the table with Hawaiian Stuffing, featuring the Islands’ famous sweet bread and Portuguese sausage. Those searching for a new twist on turkey can try guava glazed oven-baked pork tenderloin while Taro rolls, with their amethyst purple color, will be the showstopper at dinner, despite the recipe being incredibly easy.
“While Thanksgiving is not a traditional Hawaiian holiday, it is widely celebrated in the islands today,” Lum explains. “The foods of Hawai’i are a blend of many different cultures and come together to make some of the best foods in the world, in my humble opinion.”
She continues, “One year I decided to go against the grain of traditional Thanksgiving recipes and instead cook up a delicious Hawaiian spread that included traditional Hawaiian food, local favorites, and twists on classic Thanksgiving recipes. Needless to say, it was one of the best Thanksgiving meals I’ve ever had.”
Hawaiian Thanksgiving features 21 recipes perfect for Holiday dinner using ingredients found at grocery stores across the country, easily executed by home cooks of all experience levels. This free download is available at https://keepingitrelle.com/hawaiian-thanksgiving/
