(BPT) – While we love getting together with our loved ones, the thought of coming up with a meal that pleases everyone can be a bit intimidating. But with a little prep work, planning and new healthy takes on cooking and baking staples, making meals that satisfy everyone is now a lot easier.

Make everyone happy

The not-so-secret ingredient that brings a rich, creamy taste to any dish — is butter, of course. But when your not-eating-dairy-this-week cousin and more-butter-the-better sister are both coming to dinner, you need to come up with the one dish that makes them both happy. Try swapping out dairy butter for Country Crock® Plant Butter. It tastes like butter, but is dairy-free, plant-based and has less saturated fat than dairy butter. Now everyone’s happy — including you!

Twist-up a classic

Mashed potatoes without heaps of butter? Never! Create a dinner-time indulgence all your guests can enjoy by adding an extra dollop (or two) of dairy-free Plant Butter. To sneak in some extra veggies, try a twist on the classic, with garlic mashed cauliflower and potatoes.

Veggies are not just for vegans

Giving your grandmother’s timeless (but let’s be honest — sometimes tasteless) green bean casserole a dairy-free edge for your vegan guests is great, but who says veggies are for vegans only? Add more shine to your table with a veggie side dish such as roasted Brussels sprouts with a maple balsamic glaze.

Dairy-free dessert

Face it, desserts are the true stars of the table, and where there is a traditional cake, cookie or pie recipe, there’s butter. Sticks of Country Crock® Plant Butter taste, cook and bake like butter, meaning baking just got easier because you can swap it one-to-one for dairy butter in any recipe. Now you don’t need to give up that time-tested, family favorite recipe in search of a dairy-free dessert! A dairy-free apple cranberry crostata is great for everyone to enjoy after a delicious meal.

Whip up these delicious dishes to make meals that all your loved ones can enjoy. Whether keeping up time-honored traditions or starting new ones, with a little planning and preparation, it’s easy to manage the dietary needs and desires of everyone.
