We’re sharing our much-loved Thanksgiving side dish recipes for the upcoming holiday. Vegetarian, make ahead, under 30 minutes, traditional, non traditional – lots to choose from. And all delish!
In our home, we celebrate two Thanksgivings – Canadian and American. Luckily, it’s one of our favorite holidays.
I’ve been hosting Thanksgiving dinners for family and friends for over 30 years. We tend to keep things fairly traditional with tried-and-true recipes. But, from time to time, we change it up a bit to keep things interesting. Especially with two holidays to celebrate a month apart.
This year, for obvious reasons, we’ll be having a smaller affair. I’m determined, though, to keep the tradition going. We still have to eat! I will be making a succulent sous vide turkey breast as the center piece. With all the sides of course. Stuffing is my absolute fave.
So here’s what you’ll find among our best Thanksgiving side dish recipes below.
All are vegetarian side dishes (except the turkey gravy).
Most are make ahead Thanksgiving side dishes
Many are easy and take 30 minutes or less to make.
This oven roasted vegetables recipe is simple comfort food. Sweet potatoes, peppers, eggplant, apples and rosemary create a delicious side dish. Not to mention healthy and colorful. And never mind that an apple is not a vegetable. It works perfectly.
This vegetable strudel recipe wraps a savory medley of sweet potatoes, onion, peppers, apple, spinach & goat cheese in a flaky buttery puff pastry. It's a wonderful make-ahead main or side dish for a special occasion. And easy with a great shortcut.
This rich, creamy, flavor-packed Instant Pot Pumpkin Risotto recipe is pure comfort food that tastes amazing. It's a knockout vegetarian dinner for Fall or Winter. Substitute butternut squash if you can't find pumpkin.
