6 5-Ingredient Mediterranen Diet Side Dishe

Quinoa with Peas & Lemon 

Green peas add a pop of color to this bright whole-grain side dish. Plus, choosing frozen saves you time—no shelling required! Want to save even more time? Use a pouch of precooked quinoa. 

Quick & Easy Sautéed Broccolini 

The long, thin stems and small florets of broccoli are a hybrid between broccoli and gai lan, or Chinese broccoli. Lemon and garlic add zest to this soft sautéed broccolini with a dash of crushed red pepper. Serve with roasted chicken, fish, or steak. 

Turmeric-Roasted Cauliflower 

Roasting cauliflower makes it soft and crunchy. Cauliflower absorbs any spice mix or marinade, like this warm and toasty turmeric, cumin, and garlic blend. Use it as a side dish or to add plant power to salads or grain bowls.

Smashed Cucumber Salad with Lemon & Cumin 

In this quick cucumber salad recipe, salting the cucumbers for 10 minutes concentrates the taste and keeps the salad from getting washed down. Serve this smashed cucumber salad with burgers and hot dogs at a summer barbecue.

Balsamic-Parmesan Sautéed Spinach 

Tender spinach with a hint of garlic, Parmesan cheese and sweet balsamic vinegar makes a quick and flavorful side dish. The sturdy leaves of mature spinach hold up best during cooking.

Kalettes, a cross between kale and Brussels sprouts, cook quickly in a hot oven in this easy vegetable side dish recipe.
