Generally, side dishes with quiche will vary depending on the type of dish. You might like broccoli or mix vegetables to serve with a breakfast pastry, but if you’re serving it for dinner, more meal-like ingredients are usual. For example, french fries for lunch meetings; pasta salad at an outdoor picnic; or garlic bread or country cornbread alongside any of these before dinner.”
So again, what you serve will depend on whether you want to use it as more of a lunch food (with fresh fruit), an appetizer (with crackers and wine), part of the entrée course (served with potatoes or another starch) or dessert (desserts can also be elaborate).
Here are 8 delectables sides for you to add to your you menu next time you’re baking a quiche… quiche.
1. Curry CousCous Salad
Adding some spice to the proceedings is always a good idea, and this cousCous salad recipe does just that. If you’ve never tried couscous before, it’s basically tiny balls of semolina wheat pasta. It pairs perfectly with fresh vegetables like cucumber and lettuce, while adding flavor with parsley leaves too!
2. Potato Wedges With A Yogurt Dipping Sauce (pictured)
Potato wedges are almost an obvious choice when you serve quiche for dinner, but these ones come with a twist in the form of a dipping sauce made from Greek yogurt and curry powder. The spiced yogurt compliments the potato nicely!
3. Tomato Bake
If you’re looking for something with a bit more pizzazz, this tomato bake recipe is ideal. The pretty pink sauce will look great on your plate with the colorful vegetables, and it’s simple to make too! Just fry some chopped onion, throw everything in an oven proof dish, sprinkle with breadcrumbs… oh, and there are eggs involved too!
4. Garden Salad (pictured)
For those days when you want a lighter option than potatoes or pasta dishes, have a go at making this garden salad. It comes served cold so makes for a nice change from all that heat! You can choose what veggies to include based on taste preference – maybe even use leftover veggies from the night before.
5. Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Now, I’m not sure if this counts as a side dish or an appetizer, but either way it’s crispy on the outside and soft in the middle just like you want fries to be! However, these ones are made with sweet potatoes so they’re actually healthy too… win win!
6. Sushi Salad Rolls
Why not go one step further with your dinner by making sushi rolls? It’s pretty easy to make them at home if you follow this recipe , and chop up some veggies to go with it for added crunch! Great for both kids and adults alike.
7. Stuffed Mushrooms
Stuffed mushrooms are a simple yet delicious side, and they’re one of my favorites! Just buy some good ol’ big button mushrooms, clean them up nice with a brush, fill with cheese, garlic butter… all sorts of goodness basically! Then pop in the oven until cooked through. Serve hot or cold these are great options for any occasion.
8. A Nice Salad
Last but not least is probably the most obvious choice – salad . It doesn’t have to be anything special though; just grab some lettuce leaves, throw on some tomatoes, cucumber or peppers… dress with olive oil and balsamic vinegar if you want to make it extra special!
Well, there you have it; 8 delicious options for what to serve with quiche. Whether you’re having it for dinner or just need a snack I’m sure you’ll find one to suit the occasion!
