Ended up making the chicken, but had mashed sweet potatoes, TJ's stuffing, and cranberry sauce as sides. A random, quick, not quite Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving dinner.

Made this with cod instead of mushrooms. Yum! Not sure we needed the garbanzo beans in the veggie mix, but overall we can't go wrong with that naughty, tasty miso butter!
