Easy. Healthy. Everyday.
Side dishes to complete your healthy meal from February/March 2010 Healthy Cooking magazine
If you're looking for a flavorful mashed potato recipe to round out dinner tonight, we've got the one! Perfect for any cut of meat (we paired it with Whiskey Sirloin Steak on p. 51), Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes have everything you want in a hearty creamy side dish, but none of the fat. Try them tonight with your favorite main dish.
On p. 51 of our February/March issue of Healthy Cooking, we paired Simple Sesame Chicken with a fresh and fun side dish that perks up just about any meal. Give Two-Tomato Pasta a spot on your menu whenever you have baked chicken fish or pork chops. You could also stir in cooked chicken to make this a stand-alone winner.
Broccoli with Roasted Red Peppers went perfectly with Applesauce-Glazed Pork Chops on p. 53. Because it's healthy, low in fat and calories and has only five ingredients (not counting salt and pepper), this simple recipe might just have it all. Don't like broccoli? Try it with steamed green beans or Brussels sprouts.
