Eggless Pumpkin Pie With Good Day Biscuit Crust

Yeah you read it right –  pumpkin pie with good day biscuits crust. Kiddo is a big time pumpkin fan. He loves it in the pie, in the soup and even in sambhar. I have posted more than 10 pumpkin recipes so far (more than Brinjal) but pie is something that I have always missed. It’s because the pie never got a chance to come in front of the camera. Finally this time I had to prep the kiddo and clicked the pictures. Usually we need to let the pie sit for at least 2 to 3 hours after baking so that it gets firm. I prepare it in the night and leave it overnight. This time it didn’t go as planned and I baked in the evening and kiddo was behind me wanted it right away and I let it sit for only half an hour so that I can take pictures and serve it.

Thanksgiving Veggie Gravy

Thanksgiving Veggie Gravy

As I mentioned yesterday, today’s recipe is a side for the mashed potato – the Thanksgiving gravy. The vegetarian version is pretty much similar to soup except for the herbs that we add. I usually add Italian herbs for most of my soups but for this one you can use fresh or dried thyme, oregano or sage. For these winter days the mashed potato with the gravy is a perfect choice. These are easy to prepare recipes.

Mashed Potato


Green bean casserole is one among the popular recipes that is prepared for Thanksgiving. But as I posted a casserole recipe yesterday, I thought I will reserve this for later and today posting a kid’s friendly recipe – mashed potatoes. I love this recipe too. The way we cook potatoes and also how we are consuming it makes a huge difference. It’s a starchy vegetable loaded with carbs. When you have it along with protein filled diet it provides you the sufficient carbs. But when we have it with rice it adds up to our calories. As everyone say – balanced meal is the key for our health.
