mouthwatering gluten-free side dish

Looking for a side dish which is tasty, interesting and healthy? Don’t need to look further 😉 Here comes an unusual recipe, one of my winter-favorites.

When I started eating gluten-free, one of the most challenging tasks were to find side dishes which didn’t feel like boring right away. I hated rice, the glycemic index of potato and corn-based variants were too high – I wasn’t easy to please, I know. Fortunately I found a lot of tasty alternatives in the end, and I’m going to share these recipes with you one by one. Today it’s time for a filling, sweet and spicy side dish.

It’s colorful, free from gluten and milk, low carb and contains a lot of fiber and vitamins. I just love it!

You will need:

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 carrots
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 2 red onions
  • 1/4 pumpkin
  • 1 beetroot
  • sauce:
    • 4 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 tbsp lemon juice
    • 1 tbsp honey (optional)
    • salt, pepper
    • spices: nutmeg, thyme

Serves: 4

Time: 40-50 minutes


  1. Preheat oven to 200 °C.
  2. Wash and chop everything.
  3. Put the vegetables in a heat-resistant bowl.
  4. Prepare the sauce, pour it on the vegetables.
  5. Cover the bowl with aluminium foil and put it into the oven.
  6. Check it after 35-40 minutes, if it’s almost ready, uncover the bowl and put it back for another 4-5 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!

I don’t know what it could be called… Maybe ‘Winter colors salad a’la The Puur’? 🙂
