Here is a list of some delicious side dishes for your AG friendly turkey day meal:
1. Kahlua Glazed Carrots
This is by far one of the most popular posts on the blog, and with good reason. These are so decadent and easily made dairy-free using a butter substitute. If you are trying to impress your in-laws, make sure these are on your menu! Easy to make on a weeknight, but elegant enough for company.
2. Roasted Winter Veggies
I just LOVE this combination of winter veggies! The parsnips add a little kick and the flavors blend beautifully here. This recipe could be prepped completely the day before by peeling and chopping everything. Toss and roast as directed and keep warm until ready to serve. How’s that for making the big day easier?
3. Parsley Potatoes
Here’s an excellent alternative to mashed potatoes that can be made dairy free by using Earth Balance or other butter substitute.
4. Roasted Winter Veggie Soup
If you serve soup as an appetizer or accompaniment with your turkey, this should be on your menu! It’s so delicious and will be loved by all of your guests. Feel free to make this a day or 2 in advance to make the day a breeze.
5. Apple and Pecan Acorn Squash
This would be an ideal side if you were serving a small meal, for say 4-6 people in all. You would need 2-3 squash, assuming each had one half. My family says this tastes like apple pie in a squash bowl, so why not have pie for dinner and dessert? (Click HERE for our actual Apple Pie recipe)
6. Cranberry-Apple Sweet Potatoes
This can definitely be made to serve a crowd and don’t you just love all the color here? Baking in a large foil packet makes clean up a cinch and this could easily be made in the morning and kept warm until serving time.
Wishing you and yours a happy, safe, and blessed Thanksgiving!
