When Hetty of @arthurstreetkitchen brought this dish to our #feedfeed Friendsgiving last week in NYC, we were blown away by the incredible flavor profile! Do yourself a favor and put this dish on your Thanksgiving menu as an appetizer, snack or healthy side dish.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes are a great alternative to classic Mashed Potatoes, but add Tahini & a Maple Coffee Balsamic Glaze and you hit the jackpot.

Instead of a traditional green bean casserole, bring some green to your table with these roasted brussels sprouts. They're easy to prepare in a pinch, and the balsamic adds a touch of sweetness for perfect caramelization.

We love that this vibrant dish utilizes the entire carrot, stem and all. Homemade pesto makes a flavorful addition to any roasted vegetable dish you have planned for your menu.

We can't get enough of stuffed acorn squash this fall. Utilize your fresh, seasonal produce in this vegan side dish that can also be eaten as a main course for those that don't eat meat.

Try this lightened take on classic collard greens for an easy, healthy side dish. The greens are cooked with a bit of apple cider vinegar and a dash of red pepper flakes.

Ditch your traditional potato gratin recipe this year and try hasselbacking - a technique that gets your potatoes perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

This soup will lighten up your main course without sacrificing flavor, i.e. enter Miso, Tahini, and Garlic! The sweet & creamy dairy-free soup can also be served as an appetizer.
