Five New Holiday Side Dishes

//Five New Holiday Side Dishes

This week on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, we’re featuring five simple ways to give a fresh new twist to your favorite holiday side dishes, inspired by The 52 New Foods Challenge.

At Thanksgiving, there are a few family recipes that always show up on our table—Betty’s butternut squash soup, Gigi’s roasted Brussels sprouts, Gram’s pumpkin pie. But in honor of The 52 New Foods Challenge, we’re mixing it up and trying familiar favorites prepared in a new way.

Be sure to head over to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution for the full story. Here’s a taste:

Curried Butternut Squash Soup from The Naptime Chef
Kelsey takes our Easy Butternut Squash Soup and adds a secret ingredient: cumin.

Roasted Chai Butternut Squash with Pecans, Cranberries, and Maple Syrup from Granparents.com
Five of our favorite fall ingredients, all in one dish.

Candied Brussels Sprouts from The Fresh 20
No one will be missing the green bean casserole when this recipe shows up.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Chips from The 52 New Foods Challenge
Marla Meridith at Family Fresh Cooking is featuring our Roasted Brussels Sprouts Chips as a Thanksgiving appetizer. Dr. Dina Rose reports that her family dove in with “gusto and huge smiles.” They can double as a kid-friendly side dish (adults and kids alike love the crispy, crunchy chips) or as a healthy alternative on your holiday snack table.

Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes by Melissa Halas-Liang
Our Maple Roasted Mashed Sweet Potatoes are hard to top, but Melissa added coconut cream and discovered something new and delicious.

Spiced Pumpkin Rye Bread from Veggie Num Num
Trudy takes our Pumpkin Bread up a notch with coconut, pecans, and maple syrup. Even more to love.
