When it comes to meal planning, side dishes can often be overlooked. But when done right, side dishes can add a delicious and unique flavor to any meal. Whether you’re looking for something to serve at a dinner party or just a simple side dish for your family’s weeknight dinner, there are plenty of delicious options to choose from. Here are some of our favorite side dish recipes for any occasion.
Vegetable dishes are always a great option for any meal. Roasted vegetables are easy to make and can be customized with your favorite seasonings and spices. Try roasting a mix of peppers, onions, and mushrooms with some olive oil and garlic powder for a flavorful side dish that pairs well with any main course. If you’re looking for something a bit more creative, try making roasted cauliflower with Parmesan cheese and herbs.
Starchy sides are always a crowd pleaser. Mashed potatoes are always a classic choice, but if you’re looking to switch things up try making mashed sweet potatoes instead. For an even healthier option, try mashed cauliflower or mashed turnips. Both of these options have fewer carbs than traditional mashed potatoes but still provide the same creamy texture and flavor.
Fruit dishes are great for adding some sweetness to your meal. Try making a fruit salad with your favorite seasonal fruits like apples, pears, and oranges. For something more indulgent, try baking an apple crisp or peach cobbler topped with cinnamon and sugar. If you’re looking for something even simpler, just serve fresh berries or melon slices on the side.
No matter what type of meal you’re serving up, there is sure to be the perfect side dish recipe out there for you. With these recipes in your arsenal, you can easily create delicious meals that everyone will love.
