Last-Minute Healthy Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, but are you prepared for a full day of cooking and entertaining?! To help you, we rounded up five simple and speedy, healthy side dishes to go with your main dishes.

Quinoa Broccoli Slaw with Honey Mustard Dressing 

Cookie + Kate’s healthy broccoli slaw recipe is made with quinoa, toasted almonds and basil tossed in a tangy honey-mustard dressing! This gluten-free slaw will be a hit at potlucks and holiday feasts. For best flavor, plan on letting the slaw rest for 20 minutes or more before serving. 




Spiced Red Lentil & Carrot Soup with Crispy Chickpeas 

Start your Thanksgiving feast with Clementine Daily’s healthy take on comforting home made soup. A quick, easy and delicious recipe for spiced red lentil and carrot soup with crispy chickpeas. 


Gingered Cranberry-Raspberry Relish

Unlike cranberry sauce, a relish involves no cooking. EatingWell’s edition of the holiday classic includes plump raspberries which add a juicy freshness, and crystallized ginger provides sweetness and warmth. It is best served cold. Holiday Tip: Hold the mayo on your post-holiday sandwiches—use this relish instead for a real treat. 


Clean Green Bean Casserole

Ditch the canned mushroom soup and make green bean casserole from scratch. Using whole foods, Clean Cuisine transforms this Thanksgiving classic into a nutritious meal which includes superfoods like pumpkin seeds. 




Arugula, Sweet Potato, and Walnut Salad With Dashi “Vinaigrette” Recipe

 In this salad, Serious Eat’s creates a “vinaigrette” with shoyu-dashi (soy sauce) mixed with dashi—for an easy, deeply flavorful and healthy dish.
