The classic ‘meat and three veg’ meal has gained a bad wrap in the past, often labelled the go-to option for the uninspired housewife. But when it comes to nutrition, piling your plate with a serve of protein and lots of vegetables gets the big tick of approval.
So we’ve asked one of our favourite nutritionists, Lola Berry, to share a great side dish recipe that will reinvigorate a classic meat meal.
Whether you’re stuck for what to have with ‘chicken tonight’ or have been told to “just bring a side” to a social gathering, this healthy recipe is guaranteed to fire up your breakfast, lunch or dinner plate.
“This sweet potato mash is one of my staple recipes. I have it all the time and usually serve it with something meaty like steak. I always make enough for leftovers so I can use it as a dip the next day for lunch or as an afternoon snack with red capsicum and cucumber sticks!” says Lola Berry.
Tip: This sweet spud mash works well with any protein. Add some greens or a salad for an added health kick.
