Savour a vibrant and nourishing platter of spring vegetables with our delectable side dishes, which include such like beets, fennel, and cabbage. In order to promote a robust and healthy heart, these meals are also minimal in sodium and saturated fat. Taking care of your heart can be made tasty and fulfilling with these side dishes, which range from crisp salads like our Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad to roasted vegetables like our Roasted Cabbage Salad with Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette.

1.”Very Tasty” is how to describe this roasted cabbage salad with lemon-garlic vinaigrette.

This lemon-garlic vinaigrette adds a vibrant, delicious dressing to the roasted cabbage. It pairs well with everything, including tofu, grain bowls, and steak and chicken. You may also grill the cabbage wedges, which would provide a delicious smoky flavour, if you already have your grill going. You can use napa or Savoy cabbage, as well as red or green cabbage!

2. Crunchy Beets with Goat Cheese Smashed

For an outside crust that is crispy and blackened, cooked beets are pan-fried after being gently squeezed, much like smashed potatoes. This is a tasty and healthful appetiser or side dish that’s made much better by the herbed goat cheese dip.

3. Caramelised Brussels Sprout Salad

Before they dry out, cooking the Brussels on the hob gives them a head start on becoming crispy and brown. The savoury profile of Caesar salad is created by the combination of the roasted flavour of the Brussels sprouts, Parmesan cheese, and Worcestershire sauce in the dressing.

4. Warm Carrots with Honey Parmesan

This sweet side dish adds a savoury note with heaps of crispy Parmesan cheese chips and a kick of hot honey. In a small skillet over medium heat, combine honey and crushed red pepper to produce your own hot honey; bring to a gentle simmer. Take off from the heat and allow to cool fully. Add apple cider vinegar and stir to taste. Try this simple recipe with Brussels sprouts, turnips, or beets as well.

5. Roasted Beets in Gold

Similar to red beets, golden beets are earthy and delicious, but because of their softer golden hue, preparation is a little less messy. Although roasting beets brings out their sweetness, we use a tiny bit of honey to enhance their flavour. This side of golden beets pairs wonderfully with pork or roasted chicken. A simple way to liven things up is to garnish them with chopped fresh herbs and crumbled blue or goat cheese.

6. Grapefruit and Fennel Salad

This colourful and easy side salad goes well with fish, chicken, or hog. Don’t throw away the fennel fronds when slicing! The thin green tips add a vibrant, anise-flavored garnish and resemble fresh dill.

7. Ikura-topped Crispy Potato Latkes

These crispy latkes taste great topped any way you wish, but Maya Ono prefers to serve them with ikura (salmon roe) and nori furikake, sour cream, and scallions as an homage to her Japanese roots. The best kind of potatoes to use for this recipe are russets since they have more starch than other varieties, which keeps the latkes together.

8. An Easy Side Dish for Any Occasion Is Carrot Casserole

Carrot casserole is a delicious side dish for holidays that combines savoury and creamy flavours with a hint of sweetness from the carrots. Lovely undertones of coriander and dry mustard are added to the cream sauce. Carrots get a head start on the cooking process and are guaranteed to be cooked all the way through when they are microwaved. To ensure that the carrots cook evenly, cut them all into thin slices. A decent sharp knife will work just as well, but if you have a mandoline, it can make rapid work of the slicing.

9. 3. Substance Crispy Potato Peel Crackers

When you have potatoes to peel, these 3-ingredient potato peel chips are the ideal snack to create! They’re kind of like a cross between a potato chip and a french fry! You may eat these chips plain or spice them up with flavour. Just take the cooked potato peel chips out of the oven and mix them with some seasoning. (Spices may burn if seasoned before baking.) The main trick is to season them as soon as possible because the seasonings won’t stick as well once the chips cool.

10. Stir-fried Peppers, Corn and Carrots

A vibrant blend of carrot, red bell pepper, corn, and romaine lettuce make up this unusual stir-fry. This recipe is a great example of stir-frying various textures of veggies. Stir-fry the “hard vegetable,” carrots, for a minute, and then add the “medium-hard” vegetables (peppers and corn), which take a little less time to cook. To guarantee that every vegetable is cooked to the same degree, add “soft or leafy vegetables” in the final 30 seconds. When adding the lettuce to the pan, make sure it is dry; otherwise, the stir-fry will become a braise.

11. Roasted Brussels sprouts topped with pomegranate and goat cheese

Perfect for any winter meal, this stunning warm salad features creamy goat cheese, sweet-tart pomegranate seeds, and nutty roasted Brussels sprouts. It may be served for Christmas dinner or any other holiday event. If you are hosting a large gathering, you can simply double the recipe; just make sure to spread the sprouts out, using two pans if needed, so they roast rather than steam.

12. Feta and Dill with Beet Salad

Placeholder forThis simple beet salad with Greek influences highlights the earthy, sweet taste of beets with a hint of zesty feta and fresh dill. Check the fresh produce section for precooked beets if you don’t have time to roast them yourself. paragraph block

13. Broccoli with Honey-Chipotle Roasting

This is a sweet and smokey side dish made with roasted broccoli coated in honey and chipotle peppers. Serve with roasted chicken, pork, or any other main meal that needs a little kick.

14. Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Lemon and Parmesan

Smashing parboiled potatoes increases their surface area and produces crispier jagged edges when baked at a high temperature.

15. Roasted Fennel and Squash with Thyme

For this recipe, we just need one word: miraculous. The summer squash absorbs the flavours of the garlic as it roasts in the oven, and the fennel takes on sweet, caramelised flavours. Accompany it with grilled chicken or pork chops.

16. Glazed with Brown Sugar Beets

To counterbalance the earthy flavour of beets or other root vegetables, try coating them with a sweet glaze. You may also use this simple recipe with cooked turnips, carrots or rutabaga.

17. Loaded Crispy Mashed Potato Balls

Make your mashed potatoes more interesting by forming them into balls, adding cheese and bacon, then baking them until they get crispy. These would be a tasty appetiser or side dish for your upcoming holiday meal.

18. Roasted Carrots with Parmesan and Garlic

Carrots have a natural sweetness that is enhanced by roasting in the oven; garlic and Parmesan add a tasty savoury note to this simple side dish.

19. Caramelised White Beans with Broccolini

This flavorful side dish of broccolini gets a smokey char from the cast-iron pan before it’s mixed with aromatics and white beans. The dish’s fresh and nutty flavour is completed with a vivid hazelnut and parsley sauce.

20. Vegetables Roasted on a Sheet Pan

A rainbow of vibrant root veggies may be your main course. Butternut squash that has already been peeled and diced saves time, but the pieces are sometimes uneven and small; we much rather peel and cube the squash ourselves.

21. Simple Bacon Rutabaga Puree

The main ingredient in this creamy side dish is swede. Bacon adds a smokey flavour, and a spoonful of sugar balances the slightly bitter taste of the vegetable. This is a simple Thanksgiving side dish to serve. Learn more about this recipe by reading on.
