Look at those colors! Roasted carrots are the perfect side dish to share with family and friends this Thanksgiving. Traditional Thanksgiving food may be packed full of flavor, but lacking in color. Vegan turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, everything is just so … beige (well with the exception of  cranberry sauce if thats what you are into). Every Thanksgiving dish needs a pop color. Try sprucing up your plate with roasted brussels sprouts, candied yams, and these Spicy Maple Roasted Carrots by Angelina Papanikolaou!

5. Cornbread
