Weather you’re having a vegetarian or vegan holiday meal, or a traditional one I think it’s the side dishes that can make it an unforgettable experience. Here’s a few you might like.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Fried Sage: If you want a change from mashed these ones are delicious, and the fried sage adds that holiday taste.
Mashed Potatoes with Boursin Cheese: For those who want a more traditional potato dish. The addition of the Boursin cheese make what can be a boring dish quite exciting.
Maple Roasted Rutabaga & Brussels: No holiday meal would be complete for me without both rutabaga (turnip) and brussels.
Purple Cabbage with Honey Balsamic Glaze: Here’s another must have at my holiday table. I first got this recipe decades ago from a neighbours mother-in-law and have been making it ever since.
Carrot Salad with Honey Vinaigrette: Here’s an easy to make carrot recipe which you can get prepared in advance, saves some stress in the kitchen.
Beet Greens with Garlic: While one might think of beet green as a holiday dish, they add a nice brightness to a meal that can be a bit heavy.
Vegetarian (Vegan) Gravy: What holiday meal would be complete without gravy. This one can be made the day ahead.
