Best Vegan Holiday Sides

As we all get ready for the holidays, I like to put all of my favorite recipes for the best vegan sides in the same place. Easy to find and reference. As the season progresses, I'll update here as a continual resource.

Great Fall & Winter Squash Dishes

Fall is the time when squash comes into its prime. The balance of their sweet and earthy flavors pair well with the savory umami dishes you find at the holidays. Aside from that, fall and winter squash dishes are part of my Best Vegan Holiday Sides list because they are the crowd-pleasers, sure to land on everyone's plate. Here are some of my favorites:

Best Vegan Potato Sides

Who doesn't love potatoes at the holidays? Warm and comforting, potatoes set the tone for the whole meal. That being said, it doesn't mean that our potatoes need to be boring. Here's a few dishes that will blow away everyone at the Potluck!

Awesome Vegetable Sides

The holidays are a time of indulgence. With the weather turning cold, it's no wonder we turn to these warming comfort dishes. Alternatively, we need some lighter vegetable sides to balance out our meals. I love that these awesome vegetable sides are able to stand on their own against the mainstays of the holiday table.
