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.
Broccoli and 5 Grain Salad
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.
Grilled Zucchini and Bean Medley
Grilling brings out the best flavour in zucchini. Tossed with beans and feta cheese, it makes a lovely side dish at a backyard barbecue. If you like a little spice, leave the seeds in the jalapenos before finely chopping.
Loaded Sweet Potato Wedges
Sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse, full of fibre and vitamins A and C. Serve our loaded version in place of fries, with chicken fingers, burgers or almost any other main.
Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Orange and Spice
Sweet potatoes are a traditional holiday side dish, but are great at any time of year. This big-batch, orangey sweet potato mash is perfect to make if the main course is in the oven so you need to make your side dish on the stove-top.
Mixed Veggie Grill Basket
You’ll need a grill basket for this easy vegetable side dish. You use the same bowl for all the prep so there is minimal clean up.
Quinoa Stuffed Zucchini
The table will be delighted when you serve these zucchini “boats” filled with a savoury stuffing. A mouth-watering change from your regular vegetable side dishes.
Cooked quinoa replaces rice in this twist on Chinese fried rice. The quinoa can be cooked well in advance and added at the last minute. This is a great way to use up left over vegetables. Don’t be afraid to add your favourites and make it your own!
Belle Riviere Cauliflower Gratin
Adding cheese sauce to cauliflower or broccoli is a sure-fire way to get the kids to eat it! A wonderful dish to serve alongside a roast. You can steam the cauliflower, if you prefer steaming to boiling.
