Has to be roasted potatoes seasoned with garlic. One of my favorite foods. However, that probably is going to count as your starch, so I would have to say squash or brussal sprouts

Roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted butternut squash, roasted asparagus, okay I am not saying roasted any more ... the rest of these are roasted, too: parsnips, sweet potatoes, green beans. Just toss with a little olive oil and salt and roast for about 15 - 20 minutes at 425F. The vegetables turn out sweet and tender, delicious!

I typically eat raw veggies so one of my all time favorites that I can also make into a meal is spriral cut zucchini or squash. I also make a marinara or diablo sauce to put on top. I would almost say my little bit of lean protein I eat makes more of a side dish then my veggies.

Wondering what everyone's favorite vegetable side dishes are. Looking for inspiration and new ideas.

My favorites are:
- yellow & green squash with chopped sweet onions, fried up with a little oil
- steamed broccoli
- sauted mushrooms
- bell peppers in all colors diced and mixed with tomatoes, onions, corn, whatever
