What to serve with fried rice and stir fry

 

We’ve talked about the basics of choosing side dishes.  And last week we talked about side dish options for pot pies and other casseroles.

Today, we’re taking on fried rice and stir fry.

These dishes can be tough to pair with a side dish.  Honestly, I often skip other sides and just leave it with rice with the stir fry.  Or fried rice alone.

But there are times when you’d really like to have something else to round out the meal.  Here are a few ideas:

Vegetables

Try steamed or roasted broccoli, brussels sprouts, or green beans.  Or do a quick stir fry of zucchini, onions, mushrooms, carrots etc.  Season with garlic and soy sauce.

Fruit

Fresh cut oranges or pineapple can serve as a side/dessert.  The citrus sweet flavor is a nice opposite for the main dish.  Canteloupe in season is also really good with Asian main dishes.

Egg rolls, dumplings or spring rolls

This one is pretty obvious and not quite as high in nutrition either.  But they’re so good!

Salad

Green salad with Asian Vinaigrette, Asian Ginger Dressing, or Asian Sesame Dressing.  Asian Broccoli Salad, Hawaiian Cole Slaw or Tropical Salad would be good too.
