Sides, Sides, Everywhere There's Sides - 10 Low Carb Side Dish Ideas

This morning I received an email from someone who is new to low carb, wheat free eating. They asked if I could give them some side dish suggestions other than "just plain vegetables" so I put together this quick collection of recipe suggestions. I promise that while there are veggies included in all of these recipes, that none of them are boring! Pair one of these sides with a simple piece of meat, chicken, or fish and you have a delicious meal that won't leave you feeling deprived. I've put together a little collage of 10 of my favorite side dishes. Below that you will find the larger individual photos of each. Click on the title below each photo that will take you to the recipe. Enjoy!

Easy Cauliflower Rice

Golden Cheddar Broccoli Pie

Easy Coleslaw

Yellow Cheddar Squash Casserole

Baked Cauli-roni & Cheese

White Cheddar Cauliflower Bake

Rich & Thick Parmesan Cauliflower Mash

Another lovely collage! You're right, a tasty side dish can really make a meal special! A number of these very dishes have become favorites of ours. I'll have to be sure to catch up with the rest of them now! There's never a dull moment with a yummy "side"! :-)

Hi CyberSis,

Thanks. I know I really enjoyed the Cheddar Squash Casserole I made Sunday (as did the rest of the family). It's amazing how you can transform a simple vegetable into something so special isn't it? :-)
