During the upcoming holidays, you will be attending parties, dinners, and family gatherings. Each will have an abundance of delicious dishes, each indulgent and rich. While you want to enjoy those special occasions and those seasonal flavors, they do not all have to be rich and heavy. In fact, you can still satisfy your taste buds with your holiday favorites by opting to cook these light holiday recipes suggested by Brit + Co.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Green bean casserole always seems to make an appearance at Thanksgiving. Shake things up and substitute the green beans for asparagus. Instead of a casserole, however, try these Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus. The prosciutto brings plenty of salty flavor and complements the asparagus so well. You and your guests will love these so much that you may find yourself eating them as an appetizer rather than as a side dish.

Sweet Potato Rounds With Herbed Ricotta and Walnuts

In general, it seems that the Thanksgiving holiday menu is filled with casseroles. A classic favorite is sweet potato casserole. Whether you put it on your plate during the main meal or save it for later as dessert, there is no denying that it finds its way to your plate. You can still enjoy the sweet flavor of sweet potatoes with these Sweet Potato Rounds With Herbed Ricotta and Walnuts. With a delicious spread of ricotta, the sweet potatoes are topped with other holiday flavors, such as walnut and cranberry. The entire dish is topped off with a drizzle of honey. Your family will absolutely love these sweet potato rounds.

Roasted Garlic Sage Pesto Pumpkin Soup

Instead of making pumpkin pie again this holiday season, you can go savory with this Roasted Garlic Sage Pesto Pumpkin Soup. This soup packs a punch with flavor. You can sip on the delicate, aromatic flavor of the pumpkin. The fragrant pumpkin soup is complemented by a piquant sage pesto as well as spicy fried pumpkin seeds that have been seasoned with a blend of chipotle chili powder, brown sugar, and pepper.
