Vegetable Side Dish Combinations

Bigmouth | Feb 18, 2003 01:45 PM

What vegetable side dishes taste best served in the same meal, and with what? Few recipes go beyond suggesting one vegetable side dish or salad, but as a family that now follows the half-your-plate-should-be-cooked-vegetables law (excluding starches like potatoes, peas, corn), I need to come up with two and sometimes a salad, besides.

Some of our faves:

With black beans & rice: carrots in sour cream/cilantro sauce; sauteed cabbage.

With chicken in mustard sauce: steamed cauliflower; matchstick-cut zucchini & yellow squash sauteed in garlic and oil.

With lamb: sweated leeks; asparagus; salad w/blue cheese.

With garlicky, oregano-ey chicken: garlicky green beans; steamed broccoli, greek salad.

Thanks!
