Any type of meat roast lunch or dinner, as a pièce de résistance of the meal, requires a nice selection of side dishes, which will surely complement it to the fullest.
In most countries there are two staples: roasted vegetables (usually potatoes) and a type of salad (mixed vegetables, laef salad ...) So here are our top three side dishes, which go inredibly well with the La Caja China pig roast.
Get your selection of root vegetables, usually potatoes, carrots, parsnips, celery root, toss them with good olive oil, salt and pepper and throw them in a pan at 200 degrees Celsius to roast them. After like 20 minutes of cooking you can add softer vegetables, like onions, garlic, peppers, zuccini and roast them togather until done for not more then 20-30 minutes. Vegetables cooked this way is already incredibly tasty on its own but this is one of the perfect complements for a roast pork.
"The secret of a good ratatouille is to cook the vegetables separately so each will taste truly of itself." Joël Robuchon
This famous french dish is also very popular. Remember that here the key ingredient is tomato, to which you add sliced onions, garlic, zuccinis, bell peppers, eggplants, fennel and add herbs like marjoram, bay leaf, basil, and thyme.
The traditional way is to just saute all in a pan, but a much prettier way of preparing requires layering all sliced vegetables in a casserole dish and then roast it in the oven to perfection.
Spanish Style Rice
This is a spanish classic and goes very well with any pig roast. First rule is to saute the rice in sizzling oil until they are a little roastd and golden brown. That will help them to keep the texture of grains even when they are cooked. Then throw in chopped onions, chicken stock, tomatoe puree and simmer gently. Squize in a lime, throw a bunch of cilantro and mix. That is all - you just made your first spanish style rice!
