While turkey is arguably the center of attention at dinner, Thanksgiving side dishes are just as important. When your guests take a bite of these creamy mashed potatoes or melt-in-your-mouth dinner rolls, they’ll forget all about who burned the bird and who forgot that your second cousin’s girlfriend is vegan—again. (Speaking of which, just in case, here are some Thanksgiving vegetables ideas.) Sidesgiving, as it will henceforth be referred, is all about drool-worthy riffs on the classics. Like this lush kimchi and squash mac and cheese, flaky parathas layered with brown butter and sage, or spicy cauliflower studded with cashews and laced with fresh herbs. And for the traditionalists among us: Don’t fret. We’ve got oodles of Thanksgiving stuffing, sweet potatoes, green beans, and brussels sprouts too. Here you’ll find our best Thanksgiving side dishes. Read on—and don’t forget the party punch.
