Cranberry side dishes

I've been put in charge of a cranberry side dish for Thanksgiving this year, but normal cranberry sauce isn't very popular with my family. I was hoping to make something a little healthier, since our table already has butter-heavy dishes that would make Paula Deen proud and everyone else's arteries seize up upon glancing at them. We already have a salad, and my aunt usually brings a baked sweet potato and apple dish. I thought about a baked cranberries and squash dish, but I'm afraid that's too close to my aunt's recipe. I also considered a cranberry risotto, but that's the only other thing coming to mind. Any ideas? Thanks so much!
