Side dishes don't have to be complex to make your guests say "I must have this recipe!" You could even casually respond, "I made it up" and technically, it would be true. Your friends will side eye you for the rest of the evening, wondering when you had the time to secretly run off to Le Cordon Bleu. Your secret is safe with us.
Embark on a culinary adventure this Thanksgiving with our side dish Mix and Match concept, where the power is in your hands to create easy and customized side dishes that are foolproof and designed to impress.
Begin by selecting your favorite vegetables and deciding whether to roast or sauté them. Then, dive into the exciting world of fats, choosing from butter, olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, and more to elevate the flavors. Sweeten the deal by opting for date or pomegranate syrup, and then let the creativity flow as you pick your own finishing touches.
From a variety of nuts like hazelnuts, almonds, pecans, and walnuts to zesty choices like lemon, lime, orange zest, the possibilities are endless. Customize further by selecting alliums – garlic, onions, shallots, chives, or scallions – and prepare them fried, caramelized, or quick-pickled. Top it all off with your preferred fresh herbs, whether it's thyme, rosemary, cilantro, parsley, or tarragon. Get ready to turn Thanksgiving sides into a feast of your own making!
