Side dish for shepherd's pie?

I have never been able to figure out a good side dish, since it has meat (well, meat substitute), mixed veggies and potatoes. Salad just doesn't seem like it would go well, and bread or pasta just seems like too many carbs for one meal lol. Any thoughts?

  • It's got it all...protien, veggies & don't really need anything extra.

    The last time i made it though, i also made some fried okra & they went well together.

  • You know I have never paired anything with mine for that very reason!

  • I would love a salad with it! Or maybe sliced tomatoes and cukes mixed with a little Italian dressing.

  • Corn on the cob, if you leave corn out of the pie..... Asparagus, Glazed baby carrots, just pick a veggie that's not in the pie...I think something firm with a crunch would compliment it best.

  • I would start with a small salad and then have the shepherd's pie served with a side of gravy as well as bread and butter. Trust me- it's amazing when you get to dip the bread into the now drowning with gravy shepherd's pie. I've seen restaurants do it a bunch of ways but this one is my ultimate favorite. Good luck!

  • Brussel Sprouts come to mind, but steamed cauliflower would be fantastic with it.
