Thanksgiving isn’t just about the turkey. From green beans topped with a luscious tomato sauce to gorgeous, vibrant roasted beets, we’re celebrating side dishes and giving them the full attention they deserve.
Roasted Beets with Orange and Crème Fraîche
A cool and tangy crème fraîche dressing adorns roasted beets for a simple, colorful side dish. We like to use a combination of red and golden beets for presentation. [See the recipe for Roasted Beets with Orange Crème Fraîche »
Green Beans and Tomatoes
In so many green bean casseroles, the beans are cooked well past the point of mushy. In this recipe they keep some snap.
Braised Cavolo Nero
The leaves of cavolo nero (also known as Tuscan kale, Lacinato kale, or Dinosaur kale) cook slowly into a luscious heap when braised whole.
Olive Oil-Braised Vegetables
This flavorful mix of vegetables is braised in olive oil that’s been infused with rosemary, chile flakes, lemon, and anchovies.
