A Vegetarian Thanksgiving {side dishes}

To continue on with our Thanksgiving recipes, I'm posting my favorite side dishes today.

Taralynn has one of my favorite blogs & posts awesome food all the time.  She's really health conscious, but still loves comfort food.  One recipe that I plan on making as a side dish for Thanksgiving is her {healthy cornbread}.  Okay, it looks so moist and fantastic.  It would go perfectly with turkey or ham.  It's only 65 calories per serving!

Next up is my all-time favorite-- {light green bean casserole}!! It's a healthier alternative to the regular casserole, which is very calorie-dense. 

Another really great idea for a wonderful side dish is a {pecan-topped sweet potato} is to wrap up some sweet potatoes in foil & throw them in the crockpot, allowing them to cook while you're using the oven for all your other goodies.  After cooking on high for about 4 hours, they'll be soft and ready to go.  Put a little butter in a saucepan on the stove & brown pecans or almonds to top your sweet potatoes. Easy!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the main event-- the main dishes!
