It’s the time of
the year to give thanks for all the best things in our lives. We are certainly
grateful for the chance to gather again and we’re also looking forward to
cooking up delicious, homemade meals in our cozy kitchen
for family and friends. If you’re heading to a Thanksgiving gathering, don’t
show up empty handed. Instead, bring one of these tasty dishes.
and Cauliflower Au Gratin
Turn this traditional potato dish on its head by completely
flipping the script. Instead of the usual potatoes, cheese, and garlic, opt for
these cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli and cauliflower give this dish the bite
it deserves, while gooey, melted cheese offers all the comforts of this
treasured November holiday. Get the recipe here.
Chopped Chickpea Salad
This dish walks on the lighter side of things and offers
guests an easy and delicious way to get their greens. Crispy kale, roasted
chickpeas, and a tangy lemon dressing will help this side item disappear fast.
Finely chop each ingredient and garnish with pecans and pomegranate seeds for a
picture-perfect fall salad that complements any Thanksgiving spread. Here’s one
variation of this recipe.
Corn Salad with Bacon & Honey
While creamed corn is certainly a turkey day staple that
many look forward to, this corn salad with salty bacon and sweet honey should
totally replace the traditional menu item this year. Sweet, yellow corn mixes
with a tart vinaigrette to create a perfect side dish that also doubles as
delicious leftovers the day after. Here’s the recipe.
Zucchini Cornbread Muffins
No Thanksgiving Day meal is complete without the customary
basket of dinner rolls. However, traditional white or wheat rolls could use a
break. Break out the zucchini and your favorite cornbread recipe to create scrumptious
baked goods that may steal the spotlight. Get the recipe here.
Coconut Bourbon Sweet Potatoes
Take your sweet potatoes to new heights by introducing them
to Bourbon and coconut. These sweet ingredients mix and mingle in this
casserole. Top the bright orange creation with cinnamon-sugar coated pecans and
your guests will delight in the creamy, crunchy dish. Here is the recipe.
Fresh Herb Stuffing
Your guests won’t miss the Stove Top stuffing they’ve had in
years’ past once they taste this fresh herb stuffing. Use thyme, parsley, and
whatever other favorite herbs you harvested from your garden this year to
create an aromatic dish that will waft deliciously through the kitchen all
afternoon. Get the recipe here.
