One of the reasons many restaurant and cafe owners go into business is to share their passion for culinary masterpieces with their customers. Having a menu that speaks from the heart of your eatery is essential, but sometimes choosing popular, healthy side dishes for your restaurant can be a challenge. However, you’re in luck! We have some easy and healthy side dish options that will compliment almost any menu.
Fluffy quinoa mixed in with diced cucumbers and a zesty lemon dressing or vinaigrette is the perfect way to dress up your side dish game with a healthy and light option that your customers won’t be able to pass up.
Mediterranean Farro Salad
The Farro grains in this classic salad form a hearty complement to a cornucopia of other Grecian delights including, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and of course, a healthy serving of feta cheese.
Superfoods are all the rage in modern kitchens and provide an excellent side dish when whipped up together in a healthy salad. Include ingredients like kale, nuts, seeds, raspberries, and make it your own!
Roasted Beets with Warm Fennel
The combination of roasted beets and fennel makes for a beautifully bittersweet and utterly healthy side dish that bursts with flavor when doused in the vinegar of your choosing — sherry, apple cider, or red wine vinegar are all excellent ingredients.
Perhaps the most elegant solutions are the simplest. A side dish of roasted carrots isn’t to be underestimated. Salt, pepper, thyme leaves, and oregano can transform sliced carrots into a solid gold side dish.
