Vegetarian Side Dishes

Side dishes are small dishes that complement a meal.

A salad is a common addition to most meals. As well as oven baked, boiled, steamed or grilled vegetables; that doesn't really need a recipe.  Potatoes, rice, grains or pasta suits most meals.

To complement a vegetarian meal, try to have some carbs or beans to "ground" the veggies, a small salad and some flavors that contrast the main dish.

Like for a creamy, cheesy dish that is more bland, perhaps add a halved grilled tomato for some acidity to spark it up.

Or add cooked broccoli with a dash of salt and pepper, olive oil and a little lemon juice. It doesn't have to be complicated.

Here are some more ideas:

Baked Potato Wedges Sometimes a recipe can be as simple as it goes. This recipe for baked potato wedges goes on my top ten recipes for easy, tasty, family friendly, simple and goes-with-anything recipe.

Mashed Potatoes Recipe The best mashed potatoes are also the simplest. Potatoes like it simple. They are the most humble of all vegetables, and still potatoes can be used in so many different types of dishes and be prepared in almost any imaginable way.
