Listen, I'm all for the classics when it comes to side dishes for Christmas. I'm super happy with a bowl of mashed potatoes brimming with butter, soft, pillow-y rolls, or a pile of broccoli casserole.
But sometimes, it's worth trying something new. I always find when I'm entertaining that guests love trying something they've never had before. So this round-up may do the trick for you!
While not strictly vegetarian, all of these sides are vegetable forward (and can be made without meat, if they have it.
Give them a try, and make sure you let me know in the comments if you liked them!
