Give me ideas!

We eat a lot of vegetarian meals and are in dire need of side dishes to go with them.

Here's a couple from next month -

*pasta with red sauce garbanzo beans & zucchini
*honey baked lentils
*chicken enchiladas
*hamburger
* bread spread with pureed acorn squash topped with mozzarella
*baked winter squash
*soup

give me ideas - I have none!

We eat a lot of rice, brocolli, green & wax beans, and salads. I'm not sure what your looking for. With soup, I'd serve salad and garlic bread. Baked squash: brocolli & rice pilaf. Chicken Enchilladas: spanish rice, black beans, and guacamole. Etc...

I would think about serving some sort of cheese to go along with it. You could use your red sauce to top this: Fried Cheese Sticks with Tomato Sauce
or some variation of mozzarella sticks. Something a little crunchy, you know? Bruschetta maybe?

French or whole wheat bread and creamed spinach?

The Mexican restaurant we frequent always serves theirs with a side of Mexican rice and peas (just mix some diced tomatoes and peas with a little taco seasoning with your rice).


Hope that gets you started

Our current favorites are:

- sweet potato "fries" spiced and baked in the oven
- Brussels sprouts halved and caramelized in olive oil
- toasted kale
- risotto
- sauteed potato cubes and garlic cloves
