Unique Holiday Side Dishes
Five easy switches to the usual faire
Cooking at home and bored with your usual holiday side dishes? Try these five easy switch-ups so your holiday turkey is dressed to impress.
CRANTASTIC - Ditch the canned cranberry sauce and make your own. A bag of cranberries, orange zest, sugar, and grated ginger are all you need to wow your famiy and friends.
GET WILD - Skip the salty store-bought stuffing and get wild this year. Stuff your bird with a wild rice and quinoa salad or a squash and pancetta mash and await the compliments.
MAKE MAPLE A STAPLE - Save the marshmallows for summer cookouts. Roast sweet potatoes whole and serve with butter and a drizzle of real maple syrup.
GREEN BEAN MAKEOVER - Replace high-fat green bean casserole with garlic green beans. Toss boiled green beans with roasted garlic, butter, chili, and crunchy pecans for a flavorful new addition to your holiday spread.
VEGETARIAN OPTION - Welcoming vegetarians to your holiday table? For a delicious meat-free option, stuff bell peppers with couscous, herbs, and feta cheese for a delicious and nutritious meal. —Juliette Verlaque
