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.
Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Orange and Spice
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.
Hearty Mushroom Barley Pilaf
Barley is high in fibre and low on the glycemic index, making it a great substitute for the usual white rice used in pilaf. Try this side dish with a roast instead of potatoes or rice.
Best Ever Mashed Potatoes
Russet potatoes’ starch content makes them cook up light, fluffy and smooth- perfect for mashed potatoes. If you cannot find russet potatoes, substitute baking potatoes.
Butternut Squash Couscous
Whole wheat couscous has a lovely nutty flavour, accentuated in this fast, healthy side dish by slivered almonds. Dark orange vegetables such as butternut squash are full of beta-carotene.
Oven Roasted Vegetables
This is an “old favourite” PC recipe, which just keeps getting better and better every time we make it! In the summer we do a grilled version, but over the holidays, this oven version will accompany your turkey, tofu or roast beef equally well.

Our PC Bacon will make Brussels sprouts lovers out of the pickiest eater!

Golden, gooey, cheesy and rich- just like Mom used to make!
