Supplement With Sides

During the week I don’t usually have time to patchke in the kitchen, so I have a list of side dishes that I choose from when those last-minute guests appear. These side dishes are great supplements to your KOAMC freezer meals.

Roasted Veggies– basically you just cut, sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper, put in a pan and then into the oven. Some ideas include:

  • Acorn squash
  • Butternut squash
  • Asparagus
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Zucchini

Steamed Veggies– fresh or frozen, steamed in microwave. Some already come in the steamer bags, making this super easy without any prep. Some ideas include:

  • Cauliflower
  • Green beans
  • Broccoli
  • Edamame
  • Any medly that comes in a bag

Kugels– throw all ingredients into a bowl, mix and put into oven. Some of my go-to kugels include:

  • Broccoli corn kugel
  • Broccoli kugel
  • Butternut squash kugel
  • Cauliflower kugel
  • Sweet Noodle kugel- two steps, since you have to boil the noodles first, but still pretty easy.
  • Spinach kugel
  • Spinach Noodle Kugel- also two steps.
  • Zucchini kugel

Other Easy Ideas

  • Corn on the cob (or just a can of corn if it’s not in season)
  • Couscous (try the 5-minute Near East varities)
  • Kasha- takes a little more time, but the results are worth it!
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Rice
  • Sesame noodles
