Easy BBQ Sides

Everyone loves a BBQ, but we all want to sit and relax outside with friends - not slave away inside making side dishes while everything cooks on the BBQ.


In this newsletter you’ll find a few ideas we regularly make that are easy, quick to whip up but super tasty! Just click on the images to take you to the recipe on my Instagram.


Next time I’ll be sharing a few easy ideas for summer nibbles, as well as quick and simple summer desserts.


Let’s just hope the sun comes out!

 Quinoa Salad


This multicoloured quinoa salad with an apricot dressing is easy to make and full of nutritious ingredients but also so delicious! 


Roasted Radishes


Roasted radishes with whipped yoghurt is a 4-ingredient, super-simple side dish that contains gut-healthy whipped kefir yogurt and takes minutes to make but will be sure to impress friends and family! 


Lemony Flat Beans 


These lovely lemony flat beans are cooked in nutritious stock and lemon juice to make them delicious but also nutritious.. and they couldn't be easier to make! 

I test recipes for Yotam Ottolenghi nearly everyday and so I have cooked every single recipe ever published. Here are some of our quick and tasty favourites!


Cucumber Salad a la Xi’an Impression (Flavour, page 113)


So simple and quick but beautiful and tasty. Kids always love cucumber but with this salty, creamy dressing it’s even better! 


Hot tomatoes with cold yoghurt

(Simple, page 70)


It’s easy to make the tomatoes ahead of time, then reheat them... before simply throwing them on a plate of cold yoghurt.


Amazing flavours, so pretty and always enjoyed by everyone…..


Baked rice with confit tomatoes and garlic (Simple, page 174)


This perfectly cooked fluffy rice is so easy to make and you can make everything ahead of time and simply add the rice and water and bake when you have guests.


Always beautiful and so tasty, everyone always adores it and wants to make it!



Two other super quick ideas for you:


I buy frozen green beans and frozen ratatouille/roasted vegetables.


Simply pan fry the green beans in butter and add some garlic and salt at the end.


For the ratatouille just roast in the oven with olive oil then serve!
