You'll still have beautiful Thanksgiving sides, just without the chopping and peeling. 

  1. Cauliflower-Cream Green Bean Casserole

    Not only is this green bean casserole healthier than most, it takes advantage of Hy-Vee Short Cuts Cauliflower Rice to make a rich-tasting cream sauce. 

  2. Sweet Potato Bites

    Some people really enjoy peeling and cubing potatoes, but for those that don't, look for the Hy-Vee Short Cuts Sweet Potato Cubes in the produce department. Then use them to make these adorable bites.

  3. Veggie Stuffed Mac 'N' Cheese

    It's not uncommon to wanna load up on more mac 'n' cheese than veggies... so we stuffed this cheesy dish with Hy-Vee Short Cut broccoli, cauliflower, and butternut squash, and now we feel good about it. 

  4. Oven-Fried Broccoli and Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce

    Instead of raw florets on the veggie tray, check out this clever oven-fried twist. Because we used Hy-Vee Short Cuts chopped and pre-washed florets, it doesn't take nearly as much time as you'd think. 

  5. Candied Pineapple Sweet Potates

    Preheat the oven and skip to step 2. You don't have to peel and chop anything if you use Hy-Vee Short Cuts Sweet Potato Cubes.

  6. Mini Cauliflower Bites

    If you're as crazy about cauliflower as we are, then you probably already know how fantastic riced cauliflower is for cooking ... especially when you don't have to rice it yourself.
