When you’re looking for Thai food in MA, you’re always welcome at White Coconut Restaurant. But when you’re looking to cook some new recipes at home, we’re here to help inspire! Thanksgiving dinner traditions bring many together over the holidays. And sometimes it’s a great idea to incorporate new recipes for the dinner table! We think this is a great way to spend time with loved ones while learning about and creating new dishes.
Whether you’d like to add or swap out these recipes for your usual dinner options, that’s up to you. But in the meantime, White Coconut is here to provide some delicious Thai dishes you can make this holiday season!
If you don’t feel like cooking a whole turkey this year, we recommend trying Pla Chon Pao. This dish is made from snakehead fish stuffed with kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass. It’s also rolled in salt before cooking it on the grill. You can learn more about how to make this dish from Eating Thai Food!
If you’re looking to substitute for cranberry sauce this year, try Gaew Mongkon! It’s a purple dragonfruit that has a neon-pinkish color when cut open. Another benefit is that it has significantly less sugar than cranberry sauce. If you plan to have turkey this year, it will pair nicely with this main dish!
Pumpkin pie is a dessert many love and look forward to every holiday season. But have you ever tried Fuktong Sangkaya? This dessert is made from a hollowed and steamed pumpkin. It’s then filled with a creamy custard made from eggs, sugar, and coconut.
The best way to describe the taste of this dessert is similar to a sweet potato with a chilled creme brulee texture and flavor. Another great thing about this dessert is that it’s both dairy and gluten-free! You can check out how to make this recipe from Cooking With Lane.
We hope you enjoyed these authentic Thai recipes that you can incorporate into your Thanksgiving dinner. If you’re not cooking at home this holiday season, we encourage you to come in and dine with us! If you’re not in the mood for a sit-down meal, no worries, we also have the option to order online. Until then, we look forward to seeing you!
