The Perfect Vegetable Sides for Pork Loin Roast: Apple Onion Mash and Apple Sauteed Veggies

Apples and figs were made to compliment pork.  This is the pork loin roast that I made earlier, served with apple flavored vegetables that brought the perfect sweetness to the dish.  I especially love the dragon carrots that I found at the farmer’s market!  I’d never bought purple carrots before, and love the bright colors.  There are two vegetable parts to this dish – the apple onion mash, and then the sauteed veggies.  The mash was great, and a totally unique alternative to say, mashed potatoes.  It keeps the dish on the lighter side so it felt like it belonged more in the summer than in the dead of winter.

I love the idea of the apple-onion mash! I had roast pork 2 nights ago just with roasted veggies thrown in which was amazing, but that could have taken it over the top!

The Apple Onion Mash sounds great. I’ve never had anything like that. I’m def going to give that a try. Very creative.

I just made the sautéed green beans & carrots tonight came out awesome! Had it with a Chipolte lime pork roast. Any idea what the nutritional info is?
