Thanksgiving vegetable ideas other than green beans

  • l

I am not a big fan of green beans in general and my family detests the "tradtional" green bean casserole. What else would be good and relatively easy? Spinach? Broccoli?

The rest of the sides are mashed russet and sweet potatoes, and cornbread dressing with turkey sausage.

  1. How about roasted asparagus, broccoli or brussels sprouts?

    1. I would do roasted brussel sprouts.

      1. Brussels sprouts sauteed with chestnuts is a standard on my Thankgiving table.

        1. What about this creamy carrot casserole?

          I don't think we should try to pretend that the meal has a ounce of healthiness in it :)

          1. NYT posts a wild rice salad with celery and walnut as a side for Thanksgiving dinner:

            Even if you stick with green bean, you can make a new version. I have had this sesame tempura green beans in a restaurant and that's pretty much the only way that I will eat green beans:
