Side Dishes

Cauliflower Colcannon

This cauliflower colcannon recipe is a low carb version of the Irish side dish, but uses cauliflower in place of the traditional mashed potato. As well as a side dish, colcannon is also an Irish song. Colcannon is an Irish recipe of mashed potatoes with kale […]

Baked Cabbage Wedges

Cabbage wedges are covered with a cheese sauce and baked in the oven for a delicious cheesy cabbage casserole.   An easy side dish recipe that is delicious and tasty. I wanted to liven up some cabbage and do something different with them rather than roasting […]

Cauliflower Cheese & Onion Croquettes

Cauliflower croquettes are a low carb alternative to potato croquettes and here I’ve added cheese and onion.  With no breadcrumb coating they are also gluten free. It was time that I should revise the old cauliflower croquette recipe as I keep seeing croquettes everywhere in […]

Blackened Cauliflower

A blackened cauliflower recipe that makes a great side dish but is equally as delicious by itself.  I could (and did) happily eat a bowl of it by itself.  Roasting a cauliflower brings out a nutty taste and to add these spices makes it a […]

Jerk Cauliflower

A spicy jerk cauliflower recipe to give you a taste of the Caribbean.  It is for spice lovers only as it packs a punch almost as hard as the local rum! The most shocking thing about this recipe is that I have lived in the […]

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Broccoli

A roasted broccoli dish with garlic and Parmesan cheese that is delicious as a side dish or even just by itself. I enjoy roasting vegetables as it seems to enhance the flavour and beats a plateful of boiled vegetables any day! The flavours of garlic, […]

Cauliflower Jollof Rice

My cauliflower rice dish based on the West African jollof rice dish. You could add fish or chicken to this, but I am keeping it vegetarian and vegan. I was introduced to jollof by my husband’s family who are from Ghana.  Jollof is a West African […]

Roasted Cabbage

If in doubt about cooking a vegetable, roast it!  I find that many of my childhood vegetables that were boiled to an inch of their lives, are so much better roasted.   Cauliflower and broccoli in particular.  So I tried roasting cabbage.   So simple […]

Roasted Pumpkin & Broccoli with Feta

A great tasting combination of roasted broccoli and pumpkin that has the addition of feta and chilli to lift your taste buds. I initially made this as a main dish but I think this would be lovely as a side dish too.   Once we […]

Brussel Sprout & Cauliflower Gratin

Brussel sprouts to me are normally something that is served to me during the festive season, and usually either boiled to an inch of it’s life or hard enough to chip a tooth.   This is a nicer way of eating them and is a […]
