1 – Garlic Knots

Alright, garlic knots are like little clouds of garlicky goodness. We can’t resist their soft, chewy texture and bold, garlicky flavor. They make a perfect companion to cauliflower soup.

We use basic pizza dough, garlic, olive oil, and parsley. Brushed with melted butter and garlic, they pack a flavorful punch. Our favorite trick? A sprinkle of parmesan on top before baking. It’s a game-changer.

2 – Tomato Basil Salad

We totally love tomato basil salad. It’s light and refreshing with the perfect crunch. Juicy tomatoes and fresh basil leave a burst of flavor in every bite. This side dish pairs great with cauliflower soup.

Ingredients are simple: ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, mozzarella, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. We like to throw in some red onions for an extra kick. It’s fresh, it’s easy, and it’s delish!

3 – Roasted Beet Salad

Roasted beet salad is one of those feel-good dishes. Earthy beets roasted to caramelized perfection.

We toss them with goat cheese, walnuts, and arugula. The flavors blend in a sweet and tangy way. We’re talking about a beautiful mix of textures.

Ingredients couldn’t be simpler: beets, goat cheese, walnuts, arugula, balsamic vinaigrette. It’s a beet party.

4 – Parmesan Crisps

Parmesan crisps are crunchy discs of cheesy goodness. We seriously can’t get enough! They’re made with just grated parmesan cheese. Throw it in the oven until golden and crispy. Perfect for a quick bite with our soup.

These crisps are savoury with a hint of nuttiness. We love how they snap with each bite. They’re great solo or dipped in our soup. Simple, yet so satisfying.

5 – Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

This dish is a serious crowd-pleaser. We take the freshest asparagus and wrap it in crispy, salty bacon. The result? A perfect bite that’s savory and slightly sweet.

Ingredients: asparagus, bacon, olive oil, garlic powder.

Here’s our tip: roast them until the bacon is golden and crispy. We love the crunch of the asparagus with the rich flavor of bacon. It’s an easy side that always impresses.

6 – Lemon Dill Salmon

We all love a good lemon dill salmon. It’s fresh, light, and oh-so-zesty.

Ingredients: salmon fillets, fresh dill, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.

We rub the salmon with garlic and dill, then drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. Roast until flaky.

Flavors: bright lemon, fragrant dill, and tender salmon.

We often make it when craving something refreshing yet substantial.

7 – Butternut Squash Fritters

These fritters are a crispy treat with a hint of sweetness. We adore their golden crunch. They are an ideal side for cauliflower soup, adding a bit of heartiness to the meal.

Ingredients: butternut squash, flour, eggs, garlic, and a dash of cinnamon.

Cook them until golden brown. We prefer them with a dollop of sour cream. The flavors totally complement each other, giving a subtle yet satisfying taste.

8 – Pesto Chicken Skewers

Gotta love pesto chicken skewers, right? They’re fresh, herby, and pop with flavor. We marinate chicken in basil pesto for a zingy bite. Thread them on skewers, grill till they’re juicy.

The fresh basil and garlic flavor makes them irresistible. Ingredients: chicken breast, basil pesto, olive oil, and lemon juice. Our tip: make extra because these disappear fast. Perfectly balanced and always a hit.

9 – Caprese Skewers

Caprese skewers are our go-to summer snack. Tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. With a drizzle of balsamic glaze, they burst with flavor.

Bold, fresh tomatoes pop with juiciness. Mozzarella is creamy and mild. Basil gives a fragrant punch. All these elements come together perfectly.

Ingredients: cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, balsamic glaze. For best results, use fresh, quality ingredients.

10 – Baked Feta Dip

We love baking feta till it’s bubbly and creamy. The tangy feta melts into a silky smooth dip. Perfect for scooping with veggies or bread.

Ingredients needed: block of feta, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, and oregano. Sprinkle some chili flakes if you like heat.

We add a squeeze of lemon for brightness. This dip is savory and oh-so-satisfying.

11 – Prosciutto Wrapped Melon

We’re all about fresh prosciutto-wrapped melon. The sweet melon paired with the salty prosciutto creates an absolute flavour bomb. It’s a top-tier combo.

Ingredients? Super simple: ripe cantaloupe and quality prosciutto. Cut the melon, wrap it in prosciutto, and you’re golden.

Our tip? Try adding a touch of balsamic glaze. The contrast is amazing.

It’s straightforward but packs a burst of flavor. We always reach for more.

12 – Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are a flavour powerhouse. We love the earthy taste and hearty texture. They have a filling that’s cheesy, herby, and oh-so-satisfying. Ingredients? Mushrooms, cream cheese, garlic, parsley, parmesan. We’ve tried adding breadcrumbs and it makes them even better.

We bake them until golden and bubbly. The combination of soft mushroom cap and rich filling is irresistible. Once you start, you can’t stop.
