Steamed Vegetables and Roasted Potatoes: Not sure what to make as a side dish for the holidays? Or, can’t figure out how to please everyone? Or better yet, how to entice your friends and family to eat veggies during the holidays.
A simple and inexpensive way to serve side dishes during the holidays is to steam and roast.
Steamed Fancy Carrots cooked with butter, salt and pepper and a little bit of water under low heat for 10 to 15 minutes covered.
Roasted Potatoes made with salt, pepper, and a mixture of fresh thyme, fresh rosemary and chopped garlic. Roasted in the oven at 425 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes.
Steamed Green Beans made with butter, salt, pepper, fresh chopped garlic, and a few drops of lemon juice for that tangy taste and a little bit of water. Cook turning occasionaly on low heat for 15 – 20 minutes until tender but still crispy.
Instead of having the Steamed and Roasted Vegetables in their own platter or plate, use one big platter to save on space at the dinner table.
