One thing we've noticed while looking through our monthly stats here at Food24 is that loads of you search for scrumptious side dishes. And we can understand why; often it's not easy thinking of something to make on the spot (like when a friend asks you to recommend a good restaurant and your mind suddenly just goes blank!)

We've rounded up 5 retro and nostalgic sort of side dishes to enhance your plate - take a look!

1. Lemony mustard green beans

2. Pumpkin, sweet potato and pear bake

3. Leek and mushroom potato bake

4. Buttered baby carrots

5. Creamed spinach
