The side dishes are my favorite part of our Thanksgiving feast. Root vegetables and winter squash are so cozy and satisfying. Orange zest as well as earthy, savory herbs and spices have a tendency to slay me. I am honestly getting giddy just thinking about our holiday spread. Thanksgiving may be my favorite meal of the year. While I love tradition, I also enjoy introducing new flavors, grains and vegetables to our holidays so keep it interesting. So much so that I am cooking up a Moroccan Spiced Turkey this year which has me daydreaming of the aromatic scents that will fill my kitchen this time next week. If you’re not ready to give up those traditional sides, it could be fun to add something new to your spread and this post has all of the inspiration you need. Fire crackling, candles lit, Thanksgiving is about to kick off the cozy vibes that embody the cooler months of winter. Yes!
