I'm taking a meal to a friend today and need some help. I made BBQ pulled pork and will pick up some buns. I also made a side of roasted carrots and peas. What else can go with this? They are dairy free, btw
Sweet potato fries? Or mashed sweet potatoes with chipotle?
Also, coleslaw would be yummy. Or a mac salad or potato salad.
Aww you beat me to it. Sweet potato fries.
Alexia makes great frozen ones if you are pressed for time.
Green salad goes with anything.
I don't have any sweet potatoes or rehydrated beans right now. I need to find something in my pantry. I was actually going to make honey baked lentils but I'm out and didn't know it
I'm a vegetarian, but also I'm a Memphian, so I felt compelled to respond that the de riguer sides are cole slaw, potato salad, and/or baked beans. I think a pasta salad would work, too.
It's very kind of you to take your friend a meal.
Definitely cole slaw. But if you only bring what you mentioned already, it sounds like plenty.
I'm frying potatoes and onions in olive oil with sea salt and black pepper. Simple but one of my "Southern fried" favorites!
This is turning into a picnic meal! I should see if I can put together some fruit salad too for dessert.

My first thought was coleslaw too but I haven't tried it dairy free since my kids won't eat it anyways.
I think my recipe just calls for buttermilk, so I'd sub rice milk and lemon juice.
You can make a vinegar-based coleslaw -- kind of like with a vinaigrette. Google for recipes, I don't have a good one. Or I imagine you could use just mayo (leave out the buttermilk).
Will you share your fried-potato method/recipe? I cannot make good fried potatoes (unless I deep fry 'em) to save my life!
