Delicious Side Dishes

 

Not sure what side to add to your dinner tonight? We've made the choice a little easier with three super delicious sides that couldn't be easier to throw together. Pick your favorite one, but be warned: whichever one you choose could become a household institution.

Snap Peas with Lemon and Mint

This is a bright and zesty summer side that makes for a memorable potluck dish or just a mega-healthy addition to any meal. For best results, snag a bundle of sugar snap peas and a few sprigs of mint at your local farmers market.

To start, pop the rinsed sugar snap peas into a pot of boiling water. Boil them for just one to two minutes, then dunk them into a bowl of ice water to blanche them. Wait a few seconds—scratch your nose or dance a quick jig—then drain them. Transfer the cooled down peas to a medium bowl. Add some finely chopped and destemmed mint. Lightly season with some salt and pepper courtesy our Himalayan Pink Salt Grinder and Organic Black Pepper Grinder. Drizzle about a tablespoon or two of olive oil over the peas. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the peas. Mix it all to combine. 

Easy French Fries

These delicious and crispy little fries can be dunked in a fryer, but we like to go the slightly healthier route by baking them. Simply toss together a big pile of very thinly sliced Russet potatoes, olive oil, and a few good shakes of our Organic Garlic and Organic Onion (respectively). When your oven is nice and piping hot at 375 degrees, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook them until they turn crispy and golden brown.

Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts

If bright and fresh isn't what you're feeling but starch and carbs aren't quite it either, we'll meet you in the middle with some advice on pan-frying up brussels sprouts (not liking brussels sprouts is so passé anyway, don't you think?). 

Prep your sprouts by giving them a quick rinse in a colander. Pat them dry and slice them length-wise in half. Pop them into a bowl and toss them with some olive oil and a few good grinds of our trusty Seasoning Salt and Seasoning Pepper. Heat up a pan over medium-high heat. Once it's hot, add the brussels sprouts and cook them on each side until they start to brown. Don't let them burn!

Thai Lettuce Wraps

Thai Lettuce Wraps

These Thai lettuce wraps are one of those unicorn meals that is so easy, so healthy, and so delicious, we can't help but wolf down two or three servings before we even consider slowing down (and we can't even say with confidence that we know how to best eat a lettuce wrap. They're tricky).
