Parmesan thyme truffle fries is the perfect side dish to go along with a tasty steak. Well, any meat dish really. Conversely, I prefer to eat them on their own with a robust glass of Chardonnay.
Parmesan thyme truffle fries are full of flavor. These salty, herbed thick cut potatoes with just a touch of cheese are the epitome of comfort food. One bite into these glorious fries will have you begging for more. They melt in your mouth, but only after a crunchy crispiness rivaled by very few side dishes.
I like carrots, but when they’re part of a holiday meal, I think they should have a little pizzazz. Hence the creation of escovitch carrots. It’s a sweet and sour side dish, which is so interesting alongside other holiday dishes.
Another addition to my 12 Recipes of Christmas, and today’s recipe is….. Leek and Potato Bake. A rich offering of melt in your mouth cheesy potatoes baked with leek and heavy cream. Then topped with salt and pepper, and finally a touch of nutmeg. Yum, right?
Purple cauliflower rice is a really cool side dish. It’s a smart alternative to regular rice. One cup of white rice has 5.6 times more carbs than the same amount of cauliflower rice. Cauliflower rice is packed with vitamin C too, and purple cauliflower rice is really pretty!
Replacing regular rice with cauliflower rice is a great idea, especially for those with chronic diseases such as diabetes.
It has a great bite, much lighter than conventional rice and doesn’t leave you conked out on the sofa veering to the food coma zone.
This is one of my tastebud crash dummies’ highly recommended side dishes – stewed sweet peppers. It’s a really simple dish. What you need most experience in, is waiting. Stewed sweet peppers take time to create, but the pay off is great. This side dish looks and tastes amazing.
Today’s recipe is lime laced brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts sautéd in grape seed oil, doused in lime juice and topped with lime scented ricotta – yum!
Brussels sprouts are all the rage right now. You will be hard pressed not to see them on a restaurant menu these days. My family and friends have caught the bug, and they have become mine and my niece’s alternative to fries. So I thought it time to post another brussels sprouts recipe.
