Plant-based butter can add a dairy-free edge to meals.

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.
