Scrumptious Sides

When you first start to eat more vegetables and less meat, it’s great to be creative with your usual side dishes and turn them into a healthy, yet hearty, satisfying and delicious meal.

Let your imagination take over!

To simulate your creative gourmet, try:

*Steamed green beans with homemade olive tapenade and dukkha.
Top and tail beans, place in 1cm of water in pot, bring to boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Pitt and chop 10 Kalamata olives, mix with 1 clove crushed garlic, squeeze fresh lemon and 1tbsp olive oil. Dress beans with tapenade and dukkha. Make up a dukkha of any chopped nuts, sesame seeds, ground cumin ground coriander & seasoning.

*BBQ Corn with Jalapeño Coriander Coconut Oil.
Barbecue or roast 1 cob of corn per person. Mix 2-3 tbsp coconut oil with 1 fresh jalapeño chilli, 1 tsp chilli flakes, sea salt, pepper & fresh coriander. Dress cooked corn with flavoured oil.

*Roasted Potato Wedges with Caper ‘Mayonnaise’.
Cut potatoes (1-2 per person) into wedges, par boil until just soft, then crisp in oven with a coating of coconut or olive oil & seasoning. Chop 1-2 tbsp capers and mix into 1 cup Greek yoghurt and 1 tsp Dijon mustard. Dress potatoes with the caper mayo.

Serve on a board and dig in!
