Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C and contains iron. Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower have been shown to protect against some forms of cancer. Adding some potato to cauliflower helps it mash to a nicer consistency.
Mashed Cauliflower with Goat Cheese
Habanero Black Bean Mango Salad
Sure to be the summer’s favourite salad, this is great alongside burgers, ribs, chicken and steak.
Sweet Potato Aloo Gobi
Instead of the usual potato, we’ve used sweet potato for added colour, sweetness and nutrients. Aloo gobi is a side dish, but you can serve it over rice for a vegetarian main course.
Italian-Inspired Vegetable Medley
Jazz up everyday mixed vegetables with Italian flavours of Parmesan and tomato.
Lightened Up Creamy Coleslaw
We’ve made a low fat creamy coleslaw by substituting plain yogurt for the usual full fat mayonnaise. Prepackaged coleslaw mix is a great time-saver; look for it in the produce section.
Hearty Mushroom Barley Pilaf
Barley is high in fibre and low on the glycemic index, making it a great substitute for the usual white rice used in pilaf. Try this side dish with a roast instead of potatoes or rice.
Garlic-Braised Kale and Corn
If the kale leaves are particularly large or seem tougher than usual, remove the centre rib of the kale leaves, as well as the stems.
Herb Roasted Minis
The flavours in our roast chicken spice grinder make this side dish the perfect accompaniment to a roast chicken or turkey. Pop the potatoes in the oven while your bird rests and while you carve it.
Best Ever Mashed Potatoes
Russet potatoes’ starch content makes them cook up light, fluffy and smooth- perfect for mashed potatoes. If you cannot find russet potatoes, substitute baking potatoes.
Butternut Squash Couscous
Whole wheat couscous has a lovely nutty flavour, accentuated in this fast, healthy side dish by slivered almonds. Dark orange vegetables such as butternut squash are full of beta-carotene.
