Still looking for some delicious sides for your Thanksgiving spread? Here are two delicious recipes from Whole Foods Market that will be welcome by everyone! They're both healthy and easy to make, too.

Coconut Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Coconut oil helps transform these sweet potatoes into a wonderful side dish accented with a sprinkle of freshly grated lime zest.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil over medium heat. Toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper together in a large bowl until evenly coated. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 40 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss with lime zest.

Orange-Cranberry Sauce

As an alternative to serving this bright, tart condiment with roasted turkey or chicken, stir a spoonful of it into a cup of yogurt or a tall smoothie for breakfast. Makes about 2 1/4 cups

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 (12-ounce) package fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest or orange peel cut into very thin strips (no white part)

Directions

Combine sugar, 1/2 cup water and orange juice in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and add cranberries. Return to a boil. Reduce heat and boil gently 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in orange zest or peel, cover and cool completely at room temperature. Refrigerate until serving time
