I know that I really only do sporadic WIAW posts…however sometimes I end up with a bunch of pictures of food on my phone that I feel the need to awkwardly take…so might as well do something with them! If you haven’t checked out Jen’s blog yet- go now! I don’t really have a full day of food to share, but looking through my pictures got me thinking about easy dinner sides that I frequently make.
Generally for dinner, I have a central “meat” and unless it’s a stir fry or curry, 2-3 sides I make to go along with it. I have a semi-picky husband…who so far I’ve really had to train in order to eat some veggies…but there are still some that he won’t eat. So therefore I generally have to make three sides for a dinner: one crossover one we’ll both eat and then another one for me and him respectively (not the most convenient thing but I love to cook so I don’t mind). It’s generally white potatoes or boxed mac and cheese I make for him and another veggie for me I make. Other sides include:
Sautéed or roasted cabbage
Roasted cauliflower with cocoa and chili powder
Green beans with onions and garlic
Carrot Fries **we have these weekly!
Sweet potato rounds (or fries)
Roasted or steamed Brussels sprouts
Really the possibilities are endless. I never understand why people say they don’t like vegetables….obviously they’re doing it wrong! It never occurred to me to put recipes up for any of these since a lot are pretty simple but I guess looking at them now I will. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the sides until then!
What are your go-to dinner sides?
What creative ways do you like to cook vegetables? I put cinnamon on everything!!
