Thanksgiving Made Simple

We love nothing better than being surrounded by family, love, and our favorite, comfort food. Turkey may be the star of the Thanksgiving show, but great side dishes can make you a superstar to guests and family. We are shifting the focus to our favorite fall vegetables and the perfect recipes for making them shine!


Before the meal, relax with great appetizers and a comforting glass of wine. We suggest you go with something light, such as these beautiful, crisp Endive Bites with goat cheese, figs, and honey from Clean Eating magazine.


For our first side dish, enjoy one of the tastiest holiday vegetables—asparagus. This versatile veg is super easy to cook and compliments many foods. We really enjoyed this recipe by Wallflower Kitchen. It is a quick and easy way of enjoying this awesome vegetable that everyone will love!


Since roasting is a popular cooking method for a majority of these side and main dishes, why not mix it up with some fresher ingredients? Brussels sprouts are perfect for this because shaving them down minimizes their rather potent flavor and adds great texture! Check out this warm Brussels sprouts salad recipe by Sweet & Savory.


This simple and strikingly beautiful recipe by Wholehearted Eats convinced us that we needed to include it in this guide! Berries are very popular amongst most palettes and offer a beautiful balance between tart and sweet. We loved these recipes and we know you will too!
