Healthy Side Dish Recipes

Find the Perfect Partner to an Amazing Meal

There are days when a certain meal just doesn’t feel right without a side dish to go with it. Side dishes may usually take the backseat to make way for the main dishes or the stars of your dinner table, but that doesn’t mean they’re not as important… or as delicious!

You can use different ingredients for side dishes, but my favorites involve fresh and organic vegetables because a lot of them really complement big and meaty cuts of protein or other savory vegetables as well. At the same time, they remain light and entice your appetite with their flavors, while offering numerous vitamins and minerals that can benefit your body.

When whipping up side dishes, there is so much room for creativity to flow. You can pair these with your family’s favorite dishes, or even serve them during special occasions. If you’re going for a guilt-free meal, you can prepare healthy Grilled Eggplants or flavorful Collard Greens. If you’re craving Asian cuisine, make Korean Kimchi or Ginger Baby Bok Choy. I encourage you to not restrict yourself to what is in here, but experiment with these recipes as well to suit your family’s preferences.

Whether you like your side dishes grilled, roasted, sautéed, or even raw, you’re bound to find one that can impress your family and friends and make a significant impact on your health goals. Who knows, one of these recipes might be your next favorite.
