Side dishes can rule the world because they complete our meals. This one packs some protein along with the carbs that are typical in sides, so serve this one on it's own or it goes really well with any grilled or pan-cooked protein. If you're looking for a well-balanced and super tasty meal, pair it with our Thyme and Garlic Pork Chop.
