Sesame seeds and oil give this quick sauté a slightly Asian feel. Ideal served on the side of pork tenderloin, ribs or chicken. Greens are a great source of vitamin A.
Sautéed Mixed Greens
Garlicky Fingerling Potatoes & Rapini
Rapini is a green often used in Italian cooking. When choosing a bunch, look for a deep green colour with no yellowed bits, and tight buds. To prepare, cut off bottom inch or so of stalks. Bitter in taste, rapini can stand up to lots of garlic and hot pepper flakes as in this recipe.
Deluxe Roasted Parsnips and Carrots
A traditional part of holiday roast dinner, parsnips add a delightful sweetness to roasted vegetables.
Mediterranean Green Bean Toss
Tender-crisp green beans spiked with capers and olives make a quick and tasty side dish to turkey or whatever else may be roasting in the oven.
Chorizo Corn Bread Stuffing
Do not crumble corn bread too finely for this stuffing; 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks work best. If using to stuff a turkey, stuff loosely and roast until a thermometer inserted in centre of stuffing reads 165°F (74°C). You can bake any remaining stuffing in a separate dish.
Mushrooms, Broccoli and Snow Peas with Sesame Dressing
This Asian-inspired vegetable dish makes a great side to a chicken or beef stir-fry, or serve with rice for a vegetarian meal.
Broccoli and 5 Grain Salad
Arugula is the base for the dressing as well as the leafy green in this healthy grain salad. Substitute lime juice if you prefer for a different citrus kick.
Roast Potatoes and Olives
Infused with rich, peppery and fruity flavours of our Lucques extra virgin olive oil, this makes a superb side dish to serve alongside roast chicken, steak or fish. Preheating the baking sheet helps to crisp and brown the vegetables.
Spicy and Cool Roasted Cauliflower
A delicious contrast between the spicy cauliflower and the cooling yogurt makes this a fabulous vegetable side dish to serve with your favourite curry.
Mashed Cauliflower with Goat Cheese
Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C and contains iron. Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower have been shown to protect against some forms of cancer. Adding some potato to cauliflower helps it mash to a nicer consistency.
