Easy Side Dishes To Pair With Dinner

Looking for some side dishes to serve alongside dinner? We've got you — here are two quick and easy recipes that you can prepare in 30 minutes or less.


Roasted butternut pumpkin with burrata and prosciutto ham


  • Butternut pumpkin
  • Burrata cheese
  • Prosciutto ham
  • Cashew nuts
  • Butter
  • Sage
  • Olive oil
  • Toasted chili flakes (optional)



  • Roast the butternut pumpkin at 220°C in an oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Once cooked, you can either char the pumpkin over a grill or use a flame gun to lightly torch the cooked pumpkin.
  • Melt 2 tbsp of butter on a sauce pan. Once it starts bubbling, add in some sage. Fry over medium heat until crispy.



  • Put the butternut pumpkin onto a serving dish of your choice (we picked the Casato Long Casserole Tray). 
  • Place the burrata cheese on the pumpkin, and drizzle the sage butter mix on top. 
  • Sprinkle some cashew nuts over the dish. 
  • Add in some prosciutto ham, and drizzle with olive oil. 
  • Last but certainly not least, if you're a spice lover, feel free to add in some toasted chili flakes! 


Smashed potatoes with scallions


  • Potatoes
  • Scallions
  • Butter



  • This one is so easy but so good. First, cut the potatoes in half, and boil them in salted water.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked (poke them with a fork to gauge if they are done), remove them from the water and pat them dry.
  • Once the potatoes are more or less dry, use a spoon to gently flatten them before adding salt. 
  • Butter a pan and fry the flattened potatoes over medium heat.
  • Once the flattened potatoes are crispy, take them out and garnish with scallions.
  • And voilà! Serve on a dish of your choice (we chose the Wabi-sabi Ecru Double Handled Dish).
