Let’s face it: Turkey has always been the leading lady of Thanksgiving dinner. She’s big, she’s bold and she requires every last inch of oven space. But that doesn’t mean it’s OK to serve soggy green beans, mushy sweet potatoes and lumpy gravy to back her up (we’re looking at you, Aunt Mildred—we’ll never forget the Thanksgiving of 1993). At the same time, you don’t want to monopolize the oven or stove all for a single bowl of whipped potatoes. This year, up the ante with one of these 60 Thanksgiving vegetable side dishes—like cacio e pepe cauliflower and maple-glazed Brussels sprouts—that are just as fabulous as the big bird (and easy to make, too).
