A wonderfully moist turkey is definitely the star on Thanksgiving, but its cast of scrumptious side dishes raises the meal review from merely fine to wow!

So here's a fabulous array of lightened-up vegetable and starch sides to make your meal the envy of cooks everywhere.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almonds
Brussels sprouts are a holiday favorite. Ours are roasted and tossed with crunchy almonds.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Yogurt adds wonderful creaminess to these mashed spuds. Leave the peels on for a different taste and texture.

Roasted Acorn Squash with Cumin and Pumpkin Seeds
Thanksgiving side dishes don’t get any easier. Just season and bake the squash, and then garnish with freshly toasted pumpkin seeds.

Green Beans with Caramelized Shallots and Gremolata
Crisp green beans are sautéed with shallots and then topped with a fresh combination of fresh parsley, lemon zest and minced garlic.

San Francisco Sourdough Stuffing
Full of tasty ingredients like turkey sausage, dried fruit and nuts. Plus, lots of fresh herbs and butter-sautéed vegetables.
