Don’t forget the veggies this Thanksgiving! So many people are looking for healthy foods at your Turkey Day celebration. Don’t disappoint them! Here are some of my favorite veggies you might like.
Raw Vegetable Platter and Dip
Everyone loves raw veggies and dip. Cut the veggies the Pday before and just arrange them on Thanksgiving. You can put them out in little bowls and plates, but a big platter is a crowd pleaser. It’s also an easy item to assign to someone if you are having a potluck. I found this clever veggie turkey at Living Locurto.

Hummus is a healthy dip that is extremely popular. Click here for the best hummus recipe! It only takes 10 minutes to make and works with any veggies or pita quarters. It’s also very good with pretzel chips. Any way you serve it, it just seems to disappear!
Butternut Baked Risotto
This gourmet side dish is made with rice and can also be the main dish for vegetarians. I like to add nuts and dried sweetened cranberries to this too. Yum! Bake this a day or two ahead of time and then serve it in a slow cooker to keep warm. Click here for this beautiful recipe.
Quick Garlic Green Beans
If you have to have Grandma’s green beans in the cream of mushroom soup, go for it. But if you want a cleaner healthier green bean dish that you can throw together at the last minute, try Quick Garlic Green Beans. We love them. Click here for the link.
Easy Sweet Potato Crowns
Each section of sweet potato has a yummy topping of pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. So good!
