Side dish recipes

  • This palate-cleansing salad balances out rich winter meals. The recipe calls for the vegetables to be thinly sliced, and a mandoline would come in handy here.

  • The addition of coconut milk and vanilla makes this sweet potato dish really special.

  • 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.
