Wild Rice Dressing

Wild rice (it’s actually a seed!) has a deeper flavor—as well as more protein, fiber, and antioxidants—than traditional rice. With grassy, smoky notes, it plays well with fall flavors like the dried cherries (full of potassium and beta-carotene) and pecans.

Brussels Sprouts with Apples & Honey-Mustard Vinaigrette

Deliciously earthy, nutty, and chewy, roasted Brussels sprouts have anticancer compounds as well as fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In this colorful side, they’re balanced by crispy sweet-yet-tart apples, with a vinaigrette that ties it all together.

Cauliflower-Potato Puree

Swapping half the potatoes for cauliflower gives this mash a lighter texture and slashes the calories and carbs. Whole-milk yogurt ensures it is silky smooth and adds a bright flavor hit, too.

Cranberry Mostarda

Juicy, tart cranberries are a stealth superfood, containing proantho cyanidins, which are antioxidant compounds that promote heart health and lower inflammation. In this Italian twist, they’re paired with mustard, ginger, and cinnamon.

Green Beans With Crispy Shallots & Mushrooms

The traditional fat- and sodium-laden casserole gets a health and flavor upgrade with fresh green beans and mushrooms, the latter rich in vitamins and minerals. Crispy shallots add satisfying crunch, while parsley, lemon, and Parm bring pops of freshness.

Carrot, Parsnip & Caramelized Onion Galette

A savory galette works as a side dish but could also be an impressive main option for vegetarians at the table. Mixing whole-wheat pastry flour into the dough gives this stunner a bit more heft, a satisfying texture, and extra fiber, too. And parsnips are a nutritional secret weapon, filled with folate, vitamin C, and vitamin K.

Butternut Squash Veggie Burgers

Mildly sweet and creamy, butternut squash is the perfect backdrop to the flavor of warm curry powder that shines through in these burgers. Chickpeas and oats make the patties hearty plus add plenty of fiber and protein to keep you satisfied.

Creamy Coconut–Acorn Squash Soup

Ginger and turmeric both have powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, and give a warm spiciness to this silky-smooth soup. Red lentils lend body to the broth along with protein, fiber, and iron; kale chips on top add crunch for contrast (and extra nutrients, too!).
