Hey Turkeys! Happy belated Thanksgiving! I have missed you and blogging so…and I have realized that I can no longer use being too busy as an excuse for my absence. We are all busy in our own ways. I simply NEED to make time for what I love doing- cooking, baking, blogging about nutrition and lifestyle, recipe development, and feeding you happy thoughts and ideas!
I am done with making empty promises of new recipes, mental health posts, grocery lists, etc. and not following through because of my time mismanagement. Reading “Girl, Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis has instilled in me this new sense of proactiveness in creating the life I want and deserve. And I, my friends, want to be a source of inspiration and fresh, innovative ways to evoke happiness for you.
I am going to start with the simplest of recipes, one that requires ONLY 3 ingredients! Whaaaaa???? Oh, yes yes yes. Cranberry-Orange Relish is one of my absolute favorite holiday side dishes. It is fresh, serves as a palette cleanser from dish to dish, and is the easiest recipe I’ve ever made- no exaggeration. I will allow the ingredient list and directions speak for themselves, along with the wonderfully bitter, sweet, and sour combo of taste. I am incorporating this guy in my fall harvest veggie bowl tonight (of which I will be posting about tomorrow). You can eat it by itself as a snack, serve it as a side or top it on a dish or as a spread in a sandwich *drool*. Please share how you have or will enjoy this recipe when you make it! Enjoy!
Prep time: 2 minutes
Time to make: 3 minutes + (allow to sit 1 hour-overnight)
Serving size: 1/2 cup
- 1 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries
- 1/2 large orange or 2-3 Tbsp orange peel, grated
- 1 Tbsp honey (may add more to taste)
- Rinse cranberries. Dry and add to food processor. Lightly process.
- Grate 2-3 Tbsp or 1/2 of a large orange peel over the cranberries.
- Add 1 Tbsp of honey (or more to taste). Process for 15 seconds or until the pieces look similar to the relish pictured above. Allow to sit for at least an hour i the refrigerator. The best flavor when you allow the relish to sit overnight.
- Orange you glad you made this crantastic side?! Sorry, not sorry for the dad joke. Enjoy!
