My Go-To Healthy BBQ Side Dishes

I hope you are having a lovely long weekend. We opted to stay in town for the weekend and you know... get wild and do house projects.

We will probably head to the coast tomorrow and then on Monday we will be bbq'n with the fam, as I count down the seconds until The Bachelorette starts! Anyone else a super fan? I've never loved a show so much. It feels like an event! Ha!

Anyway, I've round up some of my favorite go-to healthy recipes that I like to make along side burgers or grilled chicken, etc. These are always a crowd pleaser and absolutely GREAT for you. Enjoy!

My go-to cookbooks for healthy sides:

True Roots
It's All Good
Giada's Feel Good Food
Everyday Super Food
Dishing Up Dirt

My go-to dishes:

1. Roasted Cauliflower + Chickpea Salad. Always a crowd pleaser and vegan friendly.

2. Giada's Brushetta. This never disappoints! I love bringing a gluten free baguette as well for those g-free folks!

3. Lemon Garlic Swiss Chard Salad. Andrea has so many incredible (and simple) recipes. I always love her salads and so does everyone else!

4. Smoky Eggplant Tahini Dip. Oh wait, Andrea also makes incredible appetizers too. ; )

5. Cheese plate. I like to fill this with vegan cheese options, nuts, healthier crackers (like Simple Mills) + load it with veggies.

6. Quinoa Salad. I run to our local New Seasons market and grab whichever seasonal quinoa salad they have at the deli. Perfect option if you don't have time to cook!

7. Spicy Stuffed Jalapenos. A little indulgent, and usually a bit hit!

8. Gwyenth's Peas + Greens Rissoto. This is great as is, but also lovely with cauliflower rice as well!

Happy bbq'n! xx
