Get ready to master your holiday meal with these healthy vegetable side dishes, perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and all your family dinners!
I’m a self-professed side-o-holic.
It’s my FAVORITE part of any holiday meal!
I’ll often breeze right by the turkey or ham in favor of loading my plate with the veggie side dishes. In fact, I rarely save room on the plate for turkey. Everything else is the star in my eyes!
Baked potatoes, green beans, sweet potato fries, hot corn, mashed potatoes side salads and even a plate of sauteed mushrooms… give me a few of those on a plate and I’m a happy camper!
For those of you that are side-centric like I am or for anyone that just needs something to sit pretty next to your main dish this Thanksgiving, here are some deeeelish options from my kitchen to yours! <3
Remember: nothing says “I love you” like a veggie platter!
Though the same goes for chocolate.
Healthy Vegetable Side Dishes for Thanksgiving + Holidays
Looking to get a little indulgent with one of your vegetable side dishes?
My Broccoli Cauliflower Brussels Sprout Gratin is probably the most epic casserole of my life and I’m also super partial to my Spicy Southern Hot Corn which doubles as a dip AND a side dish! We make it every Thanksgiving and all Winter long pretty much, as our friends and family request it over and over again!
I hope this tasty round-up of vegetable side dishes helps you find a few new dishes for your holiday spread this year!
