My Six Gluten-Free, Vegan, Festive Side Dish Ideas are going to make any last-minute, festive planning super easy. All of these recipes are quick, easy and made from ingredients that are seasonal and easy to get hold of. There is a fabulous mixture of comfort food and healthy food, hot food and cold food. Something for everyone and every occasion.
Why are Side Dishes so Important???
Side dishes, for me, complete the meal. They compliment and improve the meal as well as being super dishes on their own. Great side dishes are easy to prepare and require minimal ‘worrying about’. Forget about soufflé and dishes that require pin-point accuracy of baking. These gluten free, vegan side dishes will only compliment your meal, they will improve it and make your life easier.

All totally Gluten-Free | Vegan | Allergy-Friendly | Seasonal …and… onion-free, garlic-free and coconut-free.
Gluten-Free, Vegan Cauliflower Cheese
One of my alltime favourite side-dishes is Gluten-Free, Vegan Cauliflower Cheese. Not only great for the festive season as a side also perfect as a supper dish (just add a crunchy, green salad). Rich, warming and delicious Gluten-Free, Vegan Cauliflower Cheese goes with EVERYTHING!
Christmas Root Vegetable Salad
If you are serving a buffet with lots of leftovers Christmas Root Vegetable Salad is perfect. Very, quick and easy to make! Fresh, crunchy, light, refreshing and just plain, old delicious. I adore Christmas Root Vegetable Salad with everything from Gluten-Free, Vegan Haggis Wellington to Gluten Free, Vegan Quiche and all the options in between.
Warm Pear Salad
Warm Pear Salad is not only a great side but also a wonderful starter. The side dish (or starter) for any occasion. Pears are still just about seasonal (when stored well) and impart a wonderful flavour to the salad. One of my favourite sides that matches any main for flavour and texture.
Potato and Butternut Squash Rosti
Now, Potato and Butternut Squash Rosti might look a little bit fancy but it is very easy. Don’t be intimidated by these little beauties. Make little ones for canapes and big ones to share. Potato and Butternut Squash Rosti is the perfect, indulgent side. Add a crisp salad and you have supper too!
Fondant Butternut Squash
If you want to impress your friends and family Fondant Butternut Squash is the way to go. Really, really easy and really, really impressive. And, of course, tastes amazing. The perfect fancy, indulgent side (that you know is really, quick and easy).
Crispy Roast Potatoes
What meal in complete without Crispy Roast Potatoes? Every festive (or if I’m taking the effort to make a Sunday roast) has to have Crispy Roast Potatoes. The ultimate side dish! I adore Crispy Roast Potatoes (hot and cold). If you have leftovers (rare, I know) they are great dipped in Houmous – Garlic Free! Really, really great. I cannot tell you how much I love Crispy Roast Potatoes. Very, easy and limited fuss!
