They were both so delicious, it was hard to put down the fork! Thanks of much for your time Pete and Elijah!!
Watermelon Radish and Arugula Salad with Pumpkin
Pie pumpkin (and seeds!)
Salt, pepper, optional other seasonings
Thinly slice watermelon radish and let sit a bit in lemon and oil; toss arugula and other greens in lemon and oil. Gut and roast the pie pumpkin, blending with water as needed to puree. Roast pumpkin seeds and season as desired. Arrange radish and top with arugula and other salad greens. Top with a small amount of pumpkin and pumpkin seeds.
Sweet Potato Kale Hash
Chopped onions, peppers, and garlic first in a pan with oil. Next is the grated sweet potato. When everything is looking almost done add the kale leaves, shredded to bite sized pieces. Season with salt and pepper.

Savoy Cabbage Kimchi (See video below)
There are many varieties of kimchi. Napa cabbage is the most traditional. The traditional kimchi recipe typically calls for gochugaru, (Korean chile powder). I could not find it at Valu-Market or the Highlands Kroger. I used Sambal Oelek, a ground fresh chili paste.
1 head savoy cabbage, cored, into 2-inch dice
¼ c kosher salt
1 medium pepper, 2-inch dice
2 large cherry radishes, small dice
3 green onions, sliced
1 t grated ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 T, fresh chili paste
Don't need pre-made pumpkin puree to make this amazing pumpkin pudding! Grab your pie pumpkin, scoop out the seeds (save those to make baked pumpkin seeds!) and use fresh pumpkin for a fresh pudding! Thank you for your veganized, and gluten free version of an awesome Thanksgiving dish!
