Sides, Sides, Sides!


Just going to make one massive topic for all my favorite side dishes! Some of these are straight out of my brain, so you're not going to get many exact measurements when it comes to seasoning. Just go with what your heart says! Garlic, butter, salt and pepper are always about heart, not amount! ;)


Roasted Carrots: 3 Ways

Main Ingredients
- Carrots— I like to get the ones pre-cut into sticks, but you could use any cut of carrot you like, cut them yourself or use baby carrots
- Paprika
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Salt & Pepper
- Olive Oil

Main Ingredients + Maple Syrup + Brown Sugar = Way One, sweet & smokey

Main Ingredients + Teriyaki Sauce + Brown Sugar + a lil bit of Soy Sauce + Extra Paprika = Way Two, stiry fry

Main Ingredients + Your Favorite All Purpose Seasoning for a lil extra + Panko Bread Crumbs + Shredded Parmesan = Way Three, crispy

I didn't put any measurements on this one because it's 100% based on vibes and how much carrot you have & the way they're cut. Basically, you want them to be well and coated.

Preheat your oven to 400

Bake carrots spread out on a pan until they're tender when pierced with a fork— again will depend on how your carrots are cut!
if you are making Crispy Carrots, you probably want to add the panko + parm after they've baked for a little, so nothing burns! halfway through is usally perfect

**If you have an airfryer, try frying the carrots either fully or partially!

Enjoy! xoxo
