Recipe Round-up: Thanksgiving Sides

Turkey day is only a couple of weeks away! And we all know that the turkey is supposed to be the star of the meal, but honestly for me? It’s the sides. And yeah, we can always make green bean casserole and mac & cheese any time of the year. But there’s some a little more magical when it’s served crowded around the table with family and friends. I’ve scoured the web to bring you some fresh takes on those sides we all know and love. Read on the check out this Recipe Round-up: Thanksgiving Sides!

You wanna look fancy? Plate up some of these gorgeous carrots this Thanksgiving. There is something so extra about having perfectly peeled carrots with the little green nub on top. Ditch (or at least make a smaller dish) those traditional marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes and bring the holiday orange hue with these garlicky sticks of goodness!

Carrots not really doing it for you? Bring the flavor with this dish featuring goat cheese and pomegranate seeds. You’ve got a crunchiness of the pomegranate, the creamy tartness of the goat cheese, and the sweetness of the squash all blended together in one bowl.

You all know I love Lexi’s recipes and this salad does not disappoint! Scrap the usual bagged boringness and kick the wilted spinach to the curb in favor of this crispy, creamy fall salad. Thinly sliced acorn squash lends the autumnal flair while not adding a ton of extra work.

As I said, I love Lexi’s recipes! And let’s face it, sometimes hours spent with family can be…trying. If you’re looking for a Thanksgiving-themed cocktail to serve up beyond the typical reds, whites, or whiskey, give this pumpkin-spiced drink a sip. Don’t feel basic about it, either!
