Serve these crowd-pleasing sides to complete your dinner lineup.
With all the popular recipes being served at Thanksgiving dinner (hello pumpkin pie, turkey gravy, and cranberry sauce!) it wouldn't hurt to have some healthier options offered on the table. But don't worry—healthy doesn't have to mean bland. Not only are these vegetable side dishes packed with nutrients, but they're also absolutely delicious. When so much of your time is spent making sure the roasted turkey isn't dry, you want to make sure the rest of the side dishes are easy to prepare. And luckily for you, the majority of these plates are so simple to put together—especially salt-and-pepper charred green beans, corn cobettes with basil butter, and roasted Brussels sprouts.
Of course, the vegetable side dishes don't stop there. Some of the other crowd-pleasers on this list include roasted butternut squash with cider vinaigrette, marinated mushroom-and-charred broccolini salad, and creamy cauliflower gratin—perfect for any vegetarians at the table. And those are just a handful of tasty options offered on this list. No matter what kind of side you're in the mood for, you'll find it here. These recipes are so good, even the kids will be piling their plates with veggies. In fact, you'll have to remind your guests to save room for all of the Thanksgiving pies you've baked.
