Eli and Max Sussman's Sauteed Kale

The brothers share a favorite Thanksgiving side

Don’t get us wrong: We love melted butter and gravy mixed with a spoonful of mashed potatoes and toasted marshmallows garnished with a bit of yams as much as the next American.

But this Thanksgiving we have healthier options, thanks to brothers Eli and Max Sussman, New York-based chefs and authors of the recently published This Is a Cookbook.

In today’s videos, they show us two easy, inexpensive, no-stretchy-pants-necessary recipes: sauteed kale with almonds and raisins (above) and roasted cauliflower with caramelized onions.

It’s possible we ate enough of the vegan-friendly dishes during the shoot to constitute three meals.

But that still beats French’s fried onion rings plus or minus the green beans.

This Is a Cookbook is available at amazon.com or itunes.com (iPad version), $13.
