All it takes is a sprinkling of salt and pepper to enhance the earthy flavors of the carrots in this simple side dish.
Fennel and Orange Salad
The classic flavor combination of fennel and orange makes a wonderful winter salad.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Grapes with Walnuts
The red grapes' sweetness brings out the nutty notes in the sprouts. Walnuts can be swapped for almonds or pecans.
Warm Fennel-and-Parmesan Dip
A warm, golden dip always tempts guests to dig in. This one uses Parmesan cheese to season caramelized fennel and garlic.
Shingled Roasted Potatoes
Shingling these potatoes is as easy as thinly slicing each (just not all the way through) before roasting them. The result is a beautiful display. Put them in the oven 30 minutes before the beef goes in so that everything is ready at the same time.
Take familiar techniques, like roasting, and apply them in new ways for this delicious side.
Sweet Potato Cannelloni
A twist on traditional cannelloni, this vegetarian and gluten-free dish is made with blanched sweet potato slices. They're filled with a cottage cheese, sweet potato, and apple filling, then topping with shaved Parmesan and toasted walnuts. The remarkably rich taste and vibrant appearance make it a worthy and healthy addition to any dinner.
Shaved Parsnip Salad
A surprisingly good source of vitamin C, the raw parsnips in this healthy holiday side have slightly more of the antioxidant than their cooked counterparts.
