In my opinion, Thanksgiving should offer the classics of turkey (smoked), stuffing, gravy and mashed potatoes. And, I don't let anyone mess with my homemade green bean casserole. To me, it's not Thanksgiving without it. But, I do like to play around with Thanksgiving appetizers, sides and desserts. There's no reason you can't serve something new for one of these dinner supporting roles. Here are a few options for you to consider this Thanksgiving!
Crunchy filo cups stuffed with traditional creamed spinach.
All the traditional elements of chickpea hummus but with a fall twist.
Flaky, easy to prepare, and impressive for guests. Try subbing ground turkey for pork and it's Thanksgiving ready.
These garlicky bundles of asparagus are deliciously wrapped in bacon.
The perfect make-ahead dish, this nutty farro gets crunch from bell pepper and a creamy dressing.
This delicious roasted cauliflower dish holds well, so you can make it ahead of time and serve it room temperature or reheat it right before serving.
A vegan dessert for your guests, apples are baked with a crunchy sweet brown betty topping.
I LOVE individual desserts. These darling blueberry tarlets would be perfect for your dessert buffet.
Full of lemon flavor, these light desserts will provide a sweet ending to your Thanksgiving meal.
