Turkey day is almost here and lots of you already have come to our site searching for low-salt turkeys and low-salt stuffing recipes. We also have recipes for low-salt side dishes, but went looking for more and found some that sound tasty in a big Thanksgiving roundup done by Bon Appetit magazine.
Roasted carrots with red onions, fennel and mint is the first. I’m not usually a giant mint fan, but here I might make an exception…or I might just leave out the mint along with leaving out the added salt recommended here to make this a low-salt recipe.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 pounds small carrots (about 2 bunches), peeled, cut into 3-inch pieces
2 large red onions, each cut through root end into 8 wedges
1 fennel bulb, cut into ½-inch wedges
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper [leave out the salt]
2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon coriander seeds, coarsely chopped
½ teaspoon Aleppo pepper or a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon Hungarian hot paprika
2 tablespoons Sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons torn mint leaves

This website started to give people on restricted diets alternatives to eating nothing but bland, boring food. People told us back in 2012 that no one would care about salt, fat and sugar in their food. But those naysayers were wrong, apparently.
With a month and a half left in 2017, we just hit an all-time annual high for views on our site! As of this morning, we had 57,355 views in 2017, blowing past the 56,994 views we had in 2015, our previous high. Those views this year came from 30,213 visitors to the site, another record compared with the previous high of 28,596 we had in 2015.
We consistently rank at or near the top in search results for no salt, no fat and no sugar foods and recipes. Indeed, our recipe page is the most viewed place on our site with 12,513 views as of Nov. 14.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, searches for our low-salt side dishes and our discussion on how to find low-salt turkeys will likely draw even more views before the big turkey day arrives.
Most of our viewers are in the United States but we have visitors from all over the world, which is also most gratifying.
Medical issues this year have kept me from posting as often as I have in the past, but expect that to change in the coming year. I’ll be back, finding and trying recipes that are tasty yet also low-salt, low-fat and low-sugar for you.
