No meal is complete without a tasty side dish or two. Traditional side dishes like potatoes and rice may be off the menu but this leaves room for so many new options. Cauliflower and broccoli have become staples, but so have mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, green beans and cabbage.

Our side dishes are made to compliment any main dish, and are tested in our kitchens with our families to make sure they meet the standard of “regular” food!

Korean Bean Sprout Salad

OK, this is an incredibly simple salad that I have been craving since a friend and I went out for Korean food at the Bul Go Gi House a couple weeks ago. I inhaled this light salad when it came to our table, and then ordered another one! This bean sprout salad is as tasty as the Bul Go Gi House version. So easy to make and your taste buds will thank you.

Sister-in-law Slaw

Thinking of summer? This coleslaw is just what you need.

Coleslaw is a summer favourite and this recipe has the full flavour of summer with fresh mint and lemon juice. My sister-in-law always made this salad when she came to visit, in 2008 she sent me the recipe and I have been making it ever since. The original recipe calls for peanut oil, but it is just as amazing by swapping out the peanut oil for avocado oil.

Cheesy Cheese Sauce

Never serve naked veggies again!

Very flexible recipe, if you like your cheese sauce more runny just add more cream. If you like a thicker sauce to use for as a dip, reduce the cream by half.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

That sweet and tangy delight from our childhood memories of family dinners out. A dish I once thought unattainable in the Keto diet. Remove the processed carbs and you get a wonderful food experience back again. This along with the egg roll in a bowl makes a great dinner combination. All that’s missing is the fortune cookie. That may be the next challenge on the list.

Teriyaki Chicken

Can’t quite face yet another chicken dinner.

Sauteed chicken thighs in a simple but tasty teriyaki sauce with a few garden veggies to brighten the plate and your dinner.

Baked Cauliflower

Tired of steamed veggies, bake ’em instead!

Baked cauliflower, sautéed onions and garlic make an aromatic and tasty side dish. If you want to break out of the usual steamed veggies with cheese sauce, try this baked dish it has cheese too!

Salmon Cakes

Fish is on the Menu!

Dave posted a fantastic fresh Sockeye Salmon recipe a while back. Today I cheaped out and am posting a canned salmon recipe. If you are routing around in your pantry and find a can of salmon (like I did today) this is the recipe for you. Instead of breadcrumbs use pork rinds, they add just the right texture without a strong pork flavour. The tabasco and paprika give the cakes a slight spicy bite.
