5. Easy Green Beans with Browned Butter Almondine

7. Brussels Sprout Sliders

While everyone's waiting for the big feast, casually bring these guys out. (And you might want to make a double batch. Don't say we didn't warn you.)

8. Vegan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Tell Grandma to leave her casserole at home this year. Dried cranberries add natural sweetness, so she’ll never even miss the marshmallows. (And don’t worry, there’s still a drizzle of maple syrup.)
