Some of the most exciting dishes at your Thanksgiving table are the sides! They’re a chance to show your creativity and they’re likely to bring everyone back for seconds.
Cook up something new – and surprisingly simple to prepare – this holiday with our 5 ideas for Thanksgiving side dishes that won’t be leftover at the end of the night:
Brussels Sprouts with Dried Cranberries & Hazelnuts
Our new recipe for Brussels sprouts yields a side dish that is tangy, sweet and nutty. And with only five ingredients, you won’t believe how easy it is to make!
Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Chipotle
Spice up your usual sweet potatoes by mashing them with butter and canned chipotle pepper! It’s a balance of sweet and spicy that’s sure to impress.
Roasted Cauliflower with Red Onions and Thyme
Caramelized red onions and fresh thyme bring out the flavor of cauliflower when roasted together. Slice a large red onion into rings and a head of cauliflower into florets. Coat the vegetables with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle on leaves of fresh thyme and roast.
Butternut Squash with Spinach & Walnuts
Sweet, earthy and crunchy, this side dish combines a wide array of colors and textures, making it a great choice for Turkey Day. Sauté minced garlic and chopped onions in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add equal parts cubed butternut squash and vegetable broth and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer until the squash is tender. Stir in spinach and top with toasted walnuts.
Roasted Chestnut, Mushroom & Fennel Stuffing
No Thanksgiving dinner is complete without stuffing. With earthy-sweet roasted chestnuts, firm, rich cremini mushrooms and the light anise flavor of fennel, our new stuffing recipe will steal the show at your holiday table.
