Here are 25 of our most popular Vegan & Vegetarian Side dishes to help incorporate more vegetables into our diet. Whether you are whole foods, plant-based or simply wanting to try new or different veggies, you’ll find a delicious selection of healthy vegetable sides to nourish body and soul.

If you’ve been here a while, you’ll know we cook a lot of veggies in this house! To me, there is something really comforting about a big bowl of whipped sweet potatoes simply topped with sauteed veggies or a piece of salmon.

Most of these healthy side dish recipes are quick and easy, lean and healthy, vegan-adaptable, and full of healing nutrients our bodies crave -perfect for everyday meals and meal-prepping. And some are a little more decadent, intended for special occasions, or “once a year” dinners – perfect for Thanksgiving side dishes. 🙂
