Vegan Side Dishes Top Row

1. Miso-Glazed Brussels Sprouts

An Asian twist of miso, ginger and sesame glaze add a flavor of fun for your next brussels sprouts side dish.

2. Easy Garlic Snap Peas

This dish requires three simple ingredients and you’ll have delicious garlic snap peas in no time.

3. Asian-Style Shiitake Mushrooms and Baby Bok Choy

Shiitake mushrooms are full of enzymes and vitamins that can help boost the immune system and bok choy is part of the cancer fighting cabbage family. You’ll make your body a little healthier with this side dish.

4. Easy Roasted Vegetables

Because sometimes simple roasted vegetables are all you really need.

5. Hasselback Potatoes with Garlic, Lemon & Rosemary

Substitute the butter in this recipe with an oil of your choice or a vegan butter and you’ll have garlic, lemon and rosemary potato deliciousness in no time.

6. Garlic and Chili Mushrooms

I can’t say no to mushrooms and garlic. They’re two of my favorite foods and adding a little spice would make them even more delectable.

7. Mexican Quinoa

I love one pan dishes and this Mexican quinoa looks amazing. I would probably not add the corn to it (personal preference). I bet this would make taco night a little more exciting!

8. Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar & Honey

I’m always looking for fun ways to make brussels sprouts exciting. I like the thought of making the sweet and tangy with this combination of honey and balsamic vinegar.

9. Moroccan Carrots

Carrots can always use a little twist, right? My kids love carrots, but not cooked ones. Maybe this fun little spicy twist may win them over.

10. Garlic Mushroom Quinoa

This garlic mushroom quinoa is another one pan treat from Damn Delicious. I eat mushroom quinoa at least once a week. This is one of my favorites!

Third Row

11. Quinoa Salad With Roasted Squash

Wasabi lime dressing makes this quinoa salad amazing! Kelly says this a great detox salad and may be just what your body needs after feasting on Thanksgiving treats for days.

12. Oriental Cabbage and Cranberry Salad

I eat cabbage salad every week, but the fun addition of cranberries makes this a great side dish for your holiday parties.

13. Za’atar Roasted Carrots and Green Beans

Za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend gives simple green beans and carrots an exciting new taste to enjoy.

14. Spinach Pesto Quinoa Bowl

We are pesto fans at my house. We make all kinds of concoctions with it. I love the healthy power punch with this basil pesto, spinach and quinoa bowl.

15. Balsamic Roasted Baby Carrots

The tanginess of the balsamic vinegar tames the sweetness of carrots in this fun roasted carrot recipe.

Bottom Row

16. Tomato and Basil Bake

I eat grape tomatoes like candy. I like the creativity of making a tomato and basil baked side dish.

17. Asian Garlic Green Beans

We eat a lot of green beans and I’m always looking for way to make them exciting. A little Asian twist may be what my green beans need.

18. Eggplant Bake

This eggplant bake utilizes any of your favorite herbs and offers cilantro as an option. I like to grill eggplant to give it different texture, but I bet baking it would be yummy too.

19. Broccoli with Asian Garlic Sauce

Gracie says she doesn’t like broccoli, but I wonder with the addition of an Asian garlic sauce I could get her to like them?

20. Tropical Kale Salad with Pineapple Honey Lime Dressing

Kelly is one of my bloggy friends and I love her recipes. This recipe is perfect for Floridians. We always have delicious pineapple and pears are one of my favorites fruits. This salad is perfect for enjoying a light and refreshing side dish instead of all of the heavy side dishes offered during the holidays.

Do you follow a strict diet? Does someone in your family?
