This recipe first appeared in Chef's Tips in our October 2019 issue of Culinaire courtesy Chef J.P. Gerritsen.
Keep dishes simple, and aim for ones that can be made a day or two in advance. Beets, cabbage, potatoes, and Brussels sprouts are all root veggies Alberta is known for come fall, and Chef Gerritsen says they'll all work great simply roasted with herbs.
"Try roasting veggies with things coming up in the garden, like sage and rosemary, using beautiful cold-pressed canola oil from Alberta," he says. "We don't have a fantastic growing season, so enjoy the bounty of what you have and use up anything you can from the garden."
For a twist on traditional stuffing (and the best leftover turkey sandwich you'll ever have, says Gerritsen), try his recipe for Thanksgiving stuffing waffles.
