Try using the arrow keys

Thanksgiving side dishes tend to fall into one of two categories: The ridiculously excessive (think: sweet potatoes covered in butter, marshmallows and candied pecans) and the bland afterthoughts (canned corn dumped in a slow cooker for 6-hours anyone?). But there is a middle road. Whether your Thanksgiving main is turkey or tempeh loaf, flavorful sides can be easy when you use fresh, seasonal ingredients and lots of herbs and spices. Take inspiration from these recipes and your family and friends think may think you actually do make all those things on your Pinterest food boards.
