The turkey may be the star of Thanksgiving, but everyone knows that the side dishes are where all the fun is. You have to pay homage to the staples (we see you and love you, sweet potato casserole), but that also doesn’t mean you can’t put some new life in your side dishes to serve at this year’s gathering. Luckily, we have six new side dishes to serve that will be refreshing and the delight of your picky aunt.
Is it delicious yes? Will your cousin who is going gluten-free be able to eat it? Yes. Just say yes these stuffed acorn squash, and you won’t regret it.
If you don’t have pumpkin in your arsenal of side dishes to serve, is it even Thanksgiving? The sage complements the flavor profile of this dish just as well as your meal is complemented with a nap.
All hail the cauliflower! Cauliflower is still going strong, and deserves a spot at your table. The chickpeas also provide a nice source of protein for all your non-meat eaters!
If you are looking for the most aesthetically pleasing Thanksgiving, this is definitely one of the side dishes to serve. Your taste buds will be poppin’ along with your likes, and we call that a win-win!
Brussel sprouts are definitely bacon’s more responsible BFF, and when you throw in cauliflower and a coconut milk cream, it’s a party!
To get some nice color on your plate full of brown food, this stuffed zucchini is a nice change of pace. It’s full of veggies and nutrients, so you can alleviate your guilt over that extra slice of pie (you deserve it, by the way, treat yourself!)
There you have it! Six side dishes to serve that won’t leave you yawning when you open the fridge for leftovers. Now, go ahead and get to the grocery store before the masses ascend. Happy feasting!
