Sides. Heaven or hell depending on your point of view. As a Brit I was bought up to the idea of ‘meat and 2 veg’ one of which was usually potatoes of some sort and the other some kind of overcooked soggy greens. Hell. Then I lived in France for 12 years and travelled extensively in Italy and got a completely different worldview of lightly cooked, wonderfully spiced and herbed green vegetable sides. Heaven! We’ve put together some of those heavenly vegetable sides for you here. Many are cruciferous cancer fighters and so delicious, it’s possible to think of meat as merely and accent to your plate. Enjoy!
