Easy and Delicious Holiday Sides
Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or an omnivore, it’s always essential to have a few quick-and-easy veggie side dishes in your repertoire — like these yummy Sautéed Carrots and Parsnips. Your busy holiday cooking can be more easeful with quick sides at the ready.
Seasoned simply yet creatively, this colorful side dish will be compatible with almost any menu. When you taste this dish, you may first recognize the characteristic rosemary or thyme, both synonymous with autumn seasoning. To make it a little more interesting, I didn’t stop there. I also added some cinnamon and a hint of cumin and coriander to create a subtly richer flavor. So easy yet so delicious!
If you’re creating a large banquet of food, you may want to take advantage of your food processor when making this dish, even though I love the task of slicing veggies with a good knife. You can also use this dish as a stuffing for a butternut or acorn squash.
As another holiday season begins, I will close by thanking each of you for your enthusiastic support of the Sacred & Delicious blog. Your commitment inspires me to continue sharing the wisdom of Ayurveda and its timeless principles of health, wellness, and delicious food.
As we gather around holiday tables with so much abundance, may we all remember to pause and give thanks. May everyone, everywhere, have enough nourishing food to eat—and may there be peace and harmony within and among nations. Happy Thanksgiving!
