If you’re looking for the appeal of a deep-fried appetizer without any frying at all, these just might become your go-to option. Panko makes the exotic vegetable fries deliciously crunchy, while the cool, creamy, cashew-based dip adds a fresh, bright note.
Corn and zucchini are sweet partners in golden fritters with a salty edge from tangy feta cheese. They’re great for nibbling with cocktails or for kicking off a family-style brunch. Remember that the more liquid you squeeze out of the grated zucchini, the crispier the fritters will be, so don’t skip that step.
If you’re a cheesecake fan, this goat cheese tart will make you fall in love all over again. The tangy filling is topped with a simple but elegant compote featuring fresh blackberries and figs.
Normally, gratins are layered horizontally so that the sliced vegetables lie flat in the dish. This recipe literally turns that on its side — the potatoes and artichokes are standing on their edges, so you get lots of crispy bits on top and a really fancy look that’s impressive on your holiday table.
Shishitos are usually mild, but every once in a while you get a firecracker. That’s what makes this dish really fun! Blistering the beans and peppers in a skillet gives them a nice charred taste without having to toss them on the grill or under the broiler. If you can’t find shishito peppers, try multicolored mini bell peppers instead.
Indulge — just make it mini. These teeny buns have all the sweet, cinnamon-laced appeal of their bigger cousins, but sub in a less- rich Greek yogurt drizzle for the traditional cream cheese frosting. They’re also gluten-free!
Flatbreads have the same broad appeal as pizza but are ideal for dolling up with sophisticated flavors. Here, a tasty homemade dough gets topped with caramelized onions, sweet squash, zesty sausage and creamy goat cheese for an appetizer that’s definitely not every day.
It's important to have healthy snack options in your arsenal during the holidays. This combo of spices and mixed nuts is the perfect good-for-you nibble to have on hand.

This dreamy dessert uses the magic of cashews to replicate the taste and richness of cream cheese. You’ll end up with extra Date Caramel Sauce to serve on the side, or keep for another use (such as with pancakes the next day).
It might seem strange at first, but wrapping your turkey in cheesecloth as it roasts locks in the moisture for extra-juicy meat. A simple glaze made from orange marmalade and a jus made with arrowroot round out the dish without any wheat flour, which most gravies would use.
This showstopping cauliflower dish is smothered in a crowd-pleasing tahini sauce. Crunchy nuts, sweet raisins and fresh herbs lend even more taste and texture to this incredibly delicious side or vegetarian main.
There's no fruit that screams holiday like cranberries. A classic clafoutis gets a holiday spin with cranberries and orange which lend just the right amount of sweetness and acidity.
Yes, this three-tier holiday showstopper is actually called a naked cake thanks to its sheer, stripped-down frosting. Your guests might blush at the name, but you’ll gain points for creating the most epic dessert at your holiday table.
