Dairy often permeates every inch of the Thanksgiving table, from buttermilk biscuits and milky mashed potatoes to cheesy casseroles and cream-laden desserts. This can often make it difficult for family and friends with food sensitivities to enjoy the meal. Those who follow a dairy-free diet know how frustrating it can be to try to cook without universal ingredients. Make the most of this holiday by catering to guests and getting creative in the kitchen with a dairy-free Thanksgiving menu. This year, make your show-stopping feast without butter, cream, or cheese, courtesy of our collection of diary-free Thanksgiving dishes that use fresh herbs, bacon, and oils so you can feast on the dishes you love without lactose or dairy.
Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables
Opt for simply roasted veggies in place of rich and creamy casseroles and loaded potato dishes brimming with fat and calories. This mix of colorful root vegetables may be your star side. Peeled, prechopped butternut squash saves time, but pieces tend to be irregular and small—we prefer peeling and cubing it yourself. A simple mixture of olive oil, whole-grain mustard, apple cider vinegar, thyme, salt, and pepper dresses these vegetables up for the occasion.
