12 Starchy Sides

Starchy Sides
For many people, many nights, dinner consists of a basic pattern of a protein, a veggie and a starch. And, if you're stuck in rut as far as starchy sides go, you might start feeling like you're having the same meal, night after night. One more night of seasoned-rice-from-a-box can just look discouraging after a while!

Not to mention, with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other Feast Days coming up, you might want an additional option or two for that Holiday Table. 

Adding a little variety to your starchy sides selection can make all the difference.

Nearly all of these are Gluten Free, or can easily be made so by substituting GF ingredients like Pasta or Soy Sauce.

Here are 12 to choose from - many of these can also make great Vegan main dishes : )

Baked Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

Bulgur Pilaf ( Pourgouri )

Dijon Potatoes

Greek Inspired Oven Fries

Philippine Style Fried Rice

Rosemary Roast Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet & Sour Sweet Potatoes

Indian Lemon Rice with Peas  

Orzo Pilaf

Savory One Pot Mushroom Noodles 

Confetti Spaghetti

  1. Starches are the ultimate comfort food! What a pleasure it will be to make many of these family favorites from my childhood. I am so delighted that you shared your healthy and delicious starchy sides with us at the Plant-based Potluck Party. I'm Pinning and sharing this!

  2. I tried the Rosemary Roasted Potatoes this weekend. So easy and so good. I'll be using the recipe again when I have company later this month.


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
