From where I sit, you can never have enough side dish recipes in your pocket. Side dishes definitely help to spice up a meal, change things up and provide variety. Meal planning can become pretty monotonous and boring and I find that new side dishes can really help to liven things up!
This side dish really does the trick! We love mushrooms around here, but these are super delicious. Full of fat and flavor!
Roasted veggies are the best side dish! Roasting is an easy, great way to add major flavor and texture to any veggie. One major roasting staple at our house is broccoli, here I’ve added Brussels sprouts and onion. Mushrooms are another great item to add to the mix.
Easy, delicious, and great for you!
Fish is usually the easiest thing to defrost in a hurry at our house so we have salmon or flounder (wild caught of course!) at least once a week. Tonight was one of those nights, busy hanging out with friends and getting ready for the week so I got out two salmon fillets.
I like to steam these over a bunch of veggies and I find the tin foil method to be the easiest in both preparation and clean up! I use a pie plate instead of making envelopes out of the tin foil, I like to stuff these full of veggies and spices so this seems to be the safest method for me.
Check it out, super easy and fast meal!
We’re heading off to an End of The World Chili Cook-off today and I thought I’d share the recipe I concocted with you guys…it’s too late for my competition to cheat anyway!
As you probably know, if you’ve been following us for a while, we’re really big on chili in the Rogue House! What other dish is so hearty, meaty, delicious, and so incredibly easy to make in large quantities? Chili at our house usually has beans in it, like my Black Bean Chili, but this time I’ve omitted the legumes simply because I ran out of room in m crock pot! The absence of beans makes this recipe 100% low-carb and paleo friendly!
This recipe made a huge batch of chili and filled my 6 quart crock pot to the brim, so if you’ve got smaller appetites, no more room in the freezer, or you’re just not in the mood to eat chili every meal for a week you can cut the recipe down.
Here ya go! I also made corn bread…super famous recipe for the moistest of moist corn breads…but sharing that recipe would be illegal around here! I made it to knock the competitions’ socks off, wish me luck!
I love making hearty meals this time of year. When it starts to get cold and you see twinkly lights and articles about the mayhem of Black Friday it’s time to make something hearty and warm to share with your family or friends. I happened to have some thick center cut pork chops in the freezer and they looked like the perfect start to a hearty meal, perfect for stuffing!
I also follow Paleo Parents and caught a glimpse of their recipe for Bacon & Apple Stuffed Pork Chops which gave me inspiration to stuff more pork into these beauties along with some greens. I’m getting sick of apples and I’m not a big fan of them when they’re warm so spinach and sun-dried tomatoes would be my substitution!
Here’s what I ended up with, you’ll have to tell me what you think!
