coraa: (more food love)
This time I know what we're having for the main dish. We're having lemony herbed lamb chops! Yay! But my side dish plans were contingent on a particular shop being open that was not open, and so I need to figure out what to have as a side dish (or dishes, I might make a couple things; I like to have one starch and one non-starchy vegetable where possible) out of the ingredients I have at home.

Unfortunately, I haven't shopped for veggies recently, so what I have is basically the following: frozen spinach, frozen corn, frozen edamame, canned tomatoes, fresh celery, fresh carrots, fresh lemons, onions (yellow onions and shallots), Yukon Gold potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, wild rice, couscous, quinoa, emmer farro, sandwich bread, fresh herbs (cilantro, parsley, mint and sage), sweet/hot peppers both brined and oil-cured, pickles of many types, plus a wide variety of spices, oils, vinegars, and condiments. What would you make of those?

My immediate thoughts are a) sauteed spinach, probably with garlic, possibly with tomatoes; b) corn and edamame salad, probably with garlic and lemon, possibly with spinach; c) some combination of roasted carrots, sweet potaotes, regular potatoes, and shallots, probably also with garlic; d) pilaf of some sort. But I am open to suggestions.

EDIT: Thanks to all who suggested things! I'm making a tabbouleh-style rice salad.
