The most common addition I serve to meat and fish dishes are undoubtedly all kinds of slaws, but they are closely followed by stewed and boiled vegetables. One of the simple vegetarian dishes that perfectly complements the taste of fried fish and meat are cooked vegetables in cream sauce. This dish can be prepared with any vegetables of your choice. I use peppers, mushrooms and carrots, and I also add a bit of onion and garlic. I cut some of the vegetables into pieces, grate some of them, and when ready, I fry them all in olive oil. Next, I add the spices, thicken with potato flour combined with cream and water and cook together for a few minutes until the vegetables soften.
What dishes should vegetables in cream sauce be served with? Below are some suggestions for dishes that go deliciously with this vegetable addition.
- traditional pork cutlet
- roasted chicken
- roasted spicy chicken legs
- chicken de volaille with butter
- potato fritters with ham
- baked pork neck
