Side Dishes

Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts

These sprouts are anything but mushy – pan-fried in olive oil, the leaves become brown and crispy, while the center remains tender and juicy. Simmered in apple cider vinegar and topped with chopped walnuts, this side dish is a great accompaniment to Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing or Simple Roast Chicken.

 

 

Smashed Sweet Potatoes

This simple recipe showcases the unique flavor of these carrot colored tubers  – only adding a little butter and orange to attain a feathery consistency, plus a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg for fall zest.

 

 

Savory Sauteed Squash

Fresh zucchini, yellow squash, and sweet bell pepper are simply sautéed in olive oil and topped with salt, pepper, and savory to make it a rich, yet light side to your favorite meat… and potatoes.

 

 

Broccoli Bacon Salad

A perfect side dish for summer BBQs, this healthier broccoli bacon salad combines slightly steamed broccoli with smokey bacon, crunchy water chestnuts, dried cranberries, and a creamy low-fat mayo dressing.

 

 

 

Roasted spaghetti squash with asparagus, red onion, and feta

Great for all seasons: Serve with a light n’ flakey grilled halibut during the summer or maple-mustard pork tenderloin in the fall or winter. Sweet roasted spaghetti squash is mixed with slightly charred asparagus,  aromatic red onion, and tangy feta cheese.
