Big meal, little time—it’s Thanksgiving again. And as we all know, the big meal is really about the sides. Here we feature side dishes that are doable, don’t require a kitchen redesign and won’t take you the entire month or culinary classes to prepare.

They can be done with just one oven, and a lot of them can be made ahead. They won’t scare the kids or the adults expecting a traditional spread. Butternut squash and tomatoes meld their flavors in a creamy bisque, roasted beets and walnuts star in a pungent salad, mascarpone and celery root spruce up mashed potatoes, and broccoli rabe provides a nice bitter contrast to its rich surroundings.
