Side dishes range from vegetable dishes to pastas, rice and other grains. Side dishes are usually served warm, though not always.

Side dishes are meant to compliment the entree, not fight it. If the entree is a heavier dish, something lighter is a better choice for the side. For example, a heavily sauced meat would do well with a side dish heavier on the vegetables than a pasta with yet another heavy sauce.

On the other hand, many side dishes can be uses as vegetarian meals.  I will try and make sure these are marked.  The Coconut Sweet Potatoes and Mustard Greens is a vegetarian dish with delightful flavors.  Even recipes not specifically vegetarian can easily be changed, sometimes as easily as substituting vegetable stock for the chicken stock in a recipe.  I do not eat meat every day, myself. Many of the dishes to come in this section are ones I often eat as my main course.

However you choose to use them, I hope you will find pleasure in the Harmony of Flavors to be had here!
