Roasting thin slices of Brussels sprouts makes them deliciously caramelized, while Jerusalem artichokes and green olives add buttery flavor to this unique side dish. The sprouts can be cut up to 4 days in advance, but the cooked dish is best right out of the oven.
Sweet potato wedges glazed with maple and vanilla are a healthier take on the traditional sticky-sweet marshmallow-topped casseroles. The sweet potatoes can be roasted up to a day in advance and reheated with the glaze just before serving. Spice-roasted pecans add crunch, but they are optional.
You can par-roast the cauliflower for this sweet-savory dish up to 3 days in advance and simply reheat before tossing the florets with the vinaigrette, cranberries and pine nuts before serving. It’s an ideal do-ahead side dish for everything from pork to turkey.
