Simple Healthy Thanksgiving Side Dishes
Are you still looking for some simple healthy Thanksgiving side dishes? I’ve got you covered…
There are two types of Thanksgiving cooks. One type plans and plans and plans the menu and relishes in this planning. Then there’s the type who kind of wings it. Which type are you? I’m the planner… but I also end up winging a few recipes at the last minute because I almost always think of something else that will make the meal “just perfect”.
I’ve included recipes here for both types. Pick a few of these recipes that resonate with you. They are all simple and healthy and delicious. They are all crowd pleasers, and they all make for great leftovers.
Here Are The Best Simple Healthy Thanksgiving Side Dishes
Sesame Green Beans
Sesame Green Beans are the perfect side dish. They are easy, can be made in advance, and are great at room temperature.
Raspberry Lavender Cranberry Sauce
This Raspberry Lavender Cranberry Sauce is traditional with a little twist. It can be made in advance, served at room temperature, and it’s great on sandwiches during the week following Thanksgiving.
Paleo Brussels Sprouts Gratin
This Paleo Brussels Sprouts Gratin is a comforting casserole. I make it Paleo friendly by using vegan cheese, but feel free to use whatever cheese you like.
Kale With Tomatoes And White Beans
Kale and white beans are the perfect combination. Adding in tomatoes gives us this silky and comforting Kale With Tomatoes And White Beans.
Roasted Carrots With Lime Zest
Roasted Carrots With Lime Zest is the easiest side dish. It has the great taste of traditional roasted carrots, but the lime zest gives it a little something special.
Crispy Smashed Potatoes With Pesto
I like to put these Crispy Smashed Potatoes With Pesto in the oven when the turkey comes out. The pesto can be made a few days beforehand.
Creamy Broccoli And Mushroom Casserole
This Creamy Broccoli And Mushroom Casserole has no cream, but nobody will know it. It’s comforting, warming, and it can be prepared in advance.
Pomegranate Glazed Beets
Sometimes I make a tray of roasted root vegetables and sometimes I make these Pomegranate Glazed Beets… yum!
Simple Roasted Butternut Squash
And then there’s this Simple Roasted Butternut Squash. The name says it all.
Whatever you make, make it with love and remember all of the things you are grateful for. I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
