Thanksgiving is here! Thanksgiving is  a Western holiday, but many Asian families who immigrated have learned to love it. 

Growing up in an Asian-American household, my Thanksgivings were never traditional. We always had a hodgepodge of different foods, and we never stuck to one type of cuisine. 

During the Thanksgivings where we do include American dishes, we always incorporate some Asian dishes, just because they are staples in our household!

So I thought I would share with you a list of unorthodox Thanksgiving dishes of holidays past. Maybe you’ll be inspired to try something new this Thanksgiving!
