Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away! If you are like us, you have started thinking about what you should serve this year. That is why all of us at HHHunt Communities have put together our recommendations for the top five Thanksgiving side dishes for 2021. These are fun, healthy recipes that you will not only enjoy eating – but making as well!
Crispy Sweet Potato Bake
Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Studies have linked sweet potatoes to increased immunity, healthier vision and improved digestion. That is why we love this Crispy Sweet Potato Bake featured on the Today Show. This simple recipe includes sweet potatoes, olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Speaking of highly nutritious, cauliflower includes has made a huge comeback this year with its high levels of antioxidants and fiber. Like brussels sprouts, home cooks across the country are rediscovering this vegetable and new ways to prepare it. That is one of the big reasons we love this cauliflower stuffing recipe from Yummly. With ingredients like celery, thyme, pecans, and onions, you will get all the flavors you have come to love at Thanksgiving with only 90 calories per serving!
Persimmon and Pomegranate Salad with Maple Vinaigrette and Candied Walnuts
Including a salad on your Thanksgiving Day table is always a good idea. We especially love this Persimmon and Pomegranate Salad recipe from Wholefully. Persimmons are an overlooked fruit that is in season during the winter months. They are packed with flavor and also offer a lot of antioxidants. The same is true for pomegranates which means this salad packs a delicious, fruity punch that everyone will enjoy. The best part is that this recipe only takes about 15 minutes to make so you will be done in no time.
Fresh Cranberry-Orange Sauce
Thanksgiving isn’t really complete without cranberry sauce. Why not add some added freshness to the mix with this Fresh Cranberry-Orange Sauce recipe from All Recipes? This tasty addition includes cranberries, pears, orange zest and vanilla, making it the perfect combination of flavors that will have your guests asking for more. At only 94 calories per serving, this side is a healthy option for everyone!
Pull-Apart Bread with Pumpkin and Spinach
Bread is also another staple on the Thanksgiving Day table. Rather than buying traditional dinner rolls from the store, why not try this incredible Pull-Apart Bread With Pumpkin and Spinach from epicurious? Blending two rich flavors together, this bread looks as good as it tastes! Like with all bread, it does take some time to make so plan accordingly. Also, remember that you will need to dry the spinach correctly to stop water from seeping into the dough.
