3 Easy Weekday Vegan Side Dishes that Require no Measuring!

3 Easy Weekday Vegan Side Dishes that Require no Measuring!

recipes Apr 10, 2018

There's this restaurant I love in Madrid where you basically get to assemble your own meal. Their kitchen is in the center of the restaurant and you get to see all the different sides and components they have, and you get to pick and choose like a kid in a candy store. 

I love to recreate this feeling whenever I can at home, making several smaller components, setting them out and having everybody pick the options they love and make their own combinations of flavors.

When I do this at home, I opt for simple sides that I know so well, I can practically make them in my sleep! That way there's no stress added, and I can focus on making a special recipe, or a delicious dessert, and all my components are taken care of. 

For today's quick fix I thought I'd give you a 3 for 1! Three of those simple and delicious vegan side dishes that make a frequent appearance at our house. Whether you're serving just one of these next to your favorite main dishes, or making veggie bowls with different components, they're so yummy and easy to make!

3 quick and easy vegan side dishes: Spiced up roasted sweet potatoes, garlicky almond green beans, Cajun and lime corn

As with all our quick fixes, these three require no measuring! It's a great opportunity to practice cooking by instinct, and with the video as a helping hand, you'll have no problems making this one. They're practically foolproof.

We're making vegan spiced roasted sweet potatoes, garlicky almond green beans and a Cajun and lime corn with leeks and lime! Let's do this shall we?!
