Who said that raw foodists don’t eat turkey and stuffing for Thanksgiving? Surely they do. Here’s what you get when you don’t have expectations: the stuffing that won’t cause a post-Thanksgiving meal nap, and the turkey that will make every guest, big and little, smile.

DIRECTIONS

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 ½ cup zucchini, grated, and excess juice drained
  • 1 cup yams, peeled and grated (can use carrots)
  • ½ cup hemp seeds
  • 3 pears, peeled and cut into cubes
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • ½ tsp. Celtic sea salt or to taste
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2-3 Tbs. olive oil (optional)

Ingredients for the turkey:

  • 1 Pear
  • a few spinach leaves
  • 3-4 small carrots
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 2 peppercorns

In a big bowl place hemp seeds and cubed pears and stir together until pears are coated with the seeds. Add the rest of the ingredients, and gently stir together with a spoon. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds on top. Assemble the pear turkey (see photo) and land it on top of the stuffing or in a separate little bowl next to it.
