The Best Sides For Thanksgiving: might I say that sides are the star?
Sometimes I even find myself grabbing more sides over the mains because they are THAT good. See below a quick list of our favorite sides and apps! What are you making for the holidays? Some of my highlights and favorites have to be my Vegetarian French Onion Soup, Burrata and Steak Crostini’s & Pear & Prosciutto Crostini with Gorgonzola
See below for the full list!
*Be sure to check out our Thanksgiving main dishes that aren’t turkey recipes as well!
Let’s make: steamed mussels in white wine and lemon juice! Seriously on heavy rotation as an appetizer for dinner on the weeknights for us. It’s super easy to make and v impressive, too!
THIS Pan Con Tomate with Jamón Serrano is the dreamiest, most delicious and special tapas I ever did see. Toasty sourdough (or bread of your choice) with rubbed garlic, a lovely and fresh pan con tomate, topped with one of my favorites: Jamón Serrano. Just heavenly.
Lemon chicken orzo soup! This soup is cozy, hearty and SO delicious. Made with homemade chicken stock and loads of vegetables like carrots & celery, this is a spin on a traditional classic (might I add some of the best chicken soup I’ve ever made or tasted).
Okay, this creamy potato leek soup might be the best soup ever? And it is so simple to make, I am OBSESSED.
I am absolutely obsessed with this pear and prosciutto crostini with gorgonzola! It has so many flavors going on and is a great balance with sweet, tangy and salty.
ay hello to this beautiful kale caesar salad, with a homemade horseradish caesar dressing. It is crispy, creamy and made fully homemade straight down to the croutons, and dressing with yolks.
The most epic, and simple parmesan roasted garlic bread. It is cheesy, garlicky, and just all around SO good.
I am literally obsessed with these prosciutto, Mt. Tam & Fig Jam crostini’s; they are perfect. It comes together so simply, it is SO quick to whip up and it’s definitely an appetizer pleaser for the holidays.
This post is all about these 4 cheese ravioli toasted in breadcrumbs served with a tomato vodka dipping sauce. Think an easy, quick & crunchy holiday appetizer.
I am absolutely swooning over this crunchy, refreshing, tangy, delicious little gem wedge salad with a gorgonzola dressing. Think traditional wedge but amped up using little gems, a creamy gorgonzola dressing and a herby-breadcrumb mixture. Basically, you HAVE to try this.
I LOVE this roasted red pepper and tomato soup. It’s blended up with roasted tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, shallots, chili flakes, oregano + basil. It’s creamy, dreamy and delicious.
This vegetarian french onion soup is absolutely perfect! Deep flavors, butter, hours of caramelized onions, melted cheese and bread – my DREAM meal and hands down my favorite soup.
Fall has begun and I’m just dreaming of this roasted sweet potato + pumpkin hummus! Roasted sweet potatoes blended with spices, tahini, pumpkin & lemon juice.
This: burrata and steak crostini is the ultimate appetizer. (I would have a whole platter for dinner as well, though). Creamy burrata on top of garlicky sourdough toasts, and perfectly cooked hanger steak topped with pepper flakes, chives and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar – name me a better appetizer? I’m waiting…
Fully loaded crispy parmesan sweet potato fries! The easiest snack to whip up and crisp in the oven – have it as a snack or a side with a main protein dish or eat a bunch as your main/in a salad. Epic.
Change things up a bit with this brussels sprout caesar salad! so yum. This caesar dressing is my go-to and is super easy to make – no blender needed = less dishes.
Switch up your usual deviled eggs with these kimchi deviled eggs! I love the spicy from the gochujang and zing from the kimchi. I def ate all of these.
This is the easiest – most delicious creamy corn soup EVER! And you need it.
Super easy, dairy-free tequila tomato pasta, creamy and so delicious! The sauce can be made in one skillet, in under 30 minutes total – so much yes.
I am LIVING for this amazing combo. Think charcuterie platter but on a open-faced toast.
I am absolutely obsessed with this cream of mushroom soup – that is completely cream-free, and dairy-free – it is just DIVINE, a dream, I can eat it over and over. I would also toss it with pasta and make a creamy mushroom sauce pasta, SO much YES.
Helllo creamy, dreamy goodness of 4 cheese mac n’ cheese! what I love about this recipe is that there is no roux, no flour and its just a simple recipe that is cheesy and delicious
