Side Dishes

Page 2 of 2

You may find all kinds of recipes for side dishes on this page. Salads go well with barbecued vegetables or fish and the cold sauces are excellent with salads, nut burgers/cutlets and inside wraps. They are also perfect dipping sauces for raw vegetables. You may also find weird and wonderful recipes such as baked salmon skin (yup) and a Kenyan pineapple and beetroot salad. So many recipes to chose from!

I make this dish often in the autumn when root vegetables are at their best

Oven Baked Root Vegetables

There is nothing better than preparing this dish with your own vegetables from the garden.

This sauce is on the richer side so use sparingly

Peanut Sauce from Uganda

I remember tasting a very similar sauce in Uganda one time. It was served with potatoes and barbecued goat and beef.

A very colourful salad, with deep red beetroots and bright yellow pineapple

Pineapple and Beetroot Salad from Naivasha

I remember vividly when I saw this salad for the first time. I was in Naivasha, Kenya, at a small lodge just by Lake Naivasha.

A very healthy and delicious version of potato chips with no added fat

Potato Chips

These potato chips have absolutely no fat and are still delicious and crispy. Ok they might not be as juicy as your traditional potato chips but if you want a healthy alternative this is the one.

Rhubarb good with lots of stuff

Rhubarb Jam

I love rhubarb jam, I use it on waffles, on yoghurt, on toast and wherever I can because it is very, very good for you.

A colourful and tasty salad with a healthy dressing

Salad with Tahini Dressing

I am a big salad fan. I love salads and could eat them every day.

A lovely and healthy salsa, perfect for so many things

Salsa (Tomato Salsa)

I love tomato salsa. It is one of those healthy side dishes you can even order at a crap restaurant, serving disgusting food and it will still be mostly healthy and most often delicious.

250 grams carrots 1 garlic clove 1.5 teaspoon mustard seeds (black) 1 teaspoon g

Tanzanian Sambaro Carrots

These carrots I often call "carrots with a twist" and I love them served as a side dish of African or Indian food.

Jungle sounds are optional!

The Spinach and Onion Dish From the Mystical House in Nairobi's Forest

Oh boy...there is a long story behind this recipe and how I obtained it. It all started in Nairobi, September 2007.

A really light and tasty side dish

Yoghurt Almond Salad with Bananas and Raisins

This salad is a perfect side dish for various dishes although it teams up especially well with spicy food as the yoghurt acts as a fire extinguisher in the mouth!
