1 – Roasted Vegetables

Alright, let’s get cozy with roasted vegetables. Carrots, zucchini, and bell peppers crisp up nicely with just a bit of olive oil and salt.

The caramelization adds a sweet, earthy flavor that’s hard to beat. We think it’s the perfect side for our socca. We have them all the time!

2 – Tomato and Basil Salad

We love this combo. Tomato and basil salad is fresh and light. Juicy tomatoes with fragrant basil really pop. A touch of balsamic vinegar ties it all together.

It’s a simple, refreshing side for socca. We often make it for summer picnics. The flavors are clean and vibrant. Perfect for a quick fix!

3 – Lentil Soup

Let’s talk lentil soup. Lentils are hearty and loaded with protein. We love how filling and earthy it is. The flavors meld wonderfully with socca.

Add spices like cumin or coriander. The soup gets warmth and depth. Perfect for cold nights.

We often make a big pot, and it lasts for days. A true comfort food!

4 – Grilled Zucchini

Grilled zucchini hits the mark every time. We slice the zucchini thin and slap it on the grill. The taste is smoky, with a hint of sweetness.

Perfectly charred edges give it a crisp texture. It’s a light and healthy side. We can’t get enough. Make it a go-to with socca, trust us!

5 – Herbed Couscous

Who knew couscous could be this tasty? We load ours with fresh parsley, cilantro, and mint. The flavors are bright and zesty.

It’s light but satisfying. Perfect for balancing the rich socca taste. The individual grains are fluffy and tender.

We love a squeeze of lemon juice on top for extra zing. This side dish never disappoints!

6 – Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Baked sweet potato fries have a natural sweetness. We love their crispy edges and tender insides. Add a sprinkle of sea salt for contrast.

The sweetness balances perfectly with socca’s earthiness. Throw in a dash of paprika for some heat. We can’t get enough. They’re our go-to snack. Crisp, delicious, and oh-so-satisfying!

7 – Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

Oh, boy, we love this one! Chickpeas mixed with diced cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onions. It’s tossed in a lemon-olive oil dressing. Crunchy and refreshing. Full of bright flavors.

Perfectly balances with socca. The tangy dressing lifts everything. We always add a bit of feta for creaminess. Must-try for any socca lover!

8 – Garlic Sautéed Spinach

Garlic sautéed spinach is our must-have. It’s quick and easy. We sauté spinach with garlic until it’s tender and delicious.

The flavors are bold. Spinach has a slight earthiness. Garlic adds a kick. It’s healthy and tasty.

We love how versatile it is. Serve it with any main dish. Perfect for busy weeknights!

9 – Quinoa Tabbouleh

Alright, let’s talk quinoa tabbouleh. It’s packed with flavor and nutrients. Fresh parsley, mint, and a zesty lemon dressing give it a tangy kick.

We love how the crunchy veggies mix with the fluffy quinoa. It’s light and satisfying. We often make this for potlucks, and it’s always a hit. Perfect balance with socca.

10 – Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Holy moly, baked eggplant parmesan is the real deal! The crispy coating contrasts perfectly with the tender, juicy eggplant slices. We love the layers of marinara sauce and melted cheese, creating a rich, flavourful bite each time.

The balance of savoury and sweet in this dish is unmatched. Trust us, one slice is never enough. We often make it for family dinners, and it’s always a hit. This dish adds a comforting touch to any meal, especially with socca.
