Tasty Tuesday: Side Dishes

Many of our Tasty Tuesday recipes focus on one-dish meals.... but sometimes you need a new side dish to jazz up your meal! Here are a few side dishes recommended by Anderson MOPS mamas!

Roasted Corn on the Cob

... this is the easiest way to cook corn EVER. And it's delicious. Trust me. :)

The Ingredients:

  • 1-2 ears of corn for each person, still in their husks

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line ears of corn up on a baking sheet & put in oven for 30-40 minutes (when you smell it & the husks start to look crispy, it's done). Allow to cool & shuck... the husks & silks will peel off easily. Enjoy!

Sweet Baby Carrots

Easy & kids love 'em!

The Ingredients:

  • 1 lb baby carrots, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tsp canola oil or 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar (optional)
  • pinch of salt

The Directions:

Boil carrots in medium saucepan until tender. Drain. Pour orange juice over carrots & toss. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir in butter or oil, brown sugar & salt. Cook while stirring until salt & sugar are dissolved into a syrup.

Roasted Broccoli

... it's been called the best broccoli you'll ever eat! You be the judge :)

The Ingredients:

  • 1 large bunch of fresh broccoli (or more, if you have a big family)
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt (sea salt is preferred)
  • grated cheese (optional)

The Directions:

Cut broccoli into bite-size florets. Put broccoli & olive oil in a gallon-size ziplock bag & shake it until thoroughly coated (or you can put it in a large bowl & toss). Spread on a baking sheet & sprinkle with salt. Put in oven for 25-30 minutes, or until broccoli is slightly crispy. Sprinkle with cheese (if preferred) &  serve immediately.
