For a great appetizer, try this type of Rustic Turkish Style Hummus.
Yogurt Spread with Pomegranate, Hazelnut, Pistachios
Creamy Cauliflower Soup
Creamy Potato Soup
Oven Roasted Baby Potatoes
French Beans. This recipe includes cumin and sesame but you can use exactly the same method and make what I deem to be the best side for Thanksgiving, which are roasted almonds, no cumin.
