Side dish recipes

  • Wild rice grows truly wild in Wisconsin, not just cultivated as in other states. Nutty, filling, and flavorful, this pilaf is a wonderful everyday dinner addition, but would also be welcome at the Thanksgiving table.

  • Winter root vegetables turn sweet and packed with flavor when roasted, and when lightly coated in maple syrup, they turn into a stand-out side dish.

  • This flavorful and hearty side dish is a perennial favorite at the Willy Street Co-op, and is perfect for the Thanksgiving table!

  • Winter vegetables can often seem heavy, but this root vegetable and apple salad is crisp and refreshing, a great antidote to filling holiday foods.

  • This stuffing is delicious: made with rich challah bread and loaded with sweet chestnuts, tart apples, and fresh herbs.

  • The key to light, fluffy mashed potatoes is a potato ricer: it gently turns the potatoes into tiny flakes, leaving you with perfect mashed potatoes. 

  • Nutty toasted pecans are a nice complement to Brussels sprouts.

  • Eggplant doesn't need a lot of preparation to taste great. Specialty varieties like Lilac Bride often lack the astringent flavor and big seeds that Italian Globe eggplant sometimes has.

  • This fresh and crunchy potato salad is accented with spring and summer vegetables, a great dish for upcoming picnics and potlucks.

  • This is certainly an unexpected treatment for turnips, but you won’t be disappointed! Crisp and tender bunched turnips are coated in spicy sauce and mellowed with tangy blue cheese. This is a great substitute for wings, perfect for vegetarians and adventurous eaters alike.
