Default Low Carb Side Dishes

Looking for some simple and convenient side dishes/recipes to serve with dinner. Something that doesn't scare the kids. My wife hates mushrooms so that's out of the picture.

Anything that can be served on a plate with protein

I have a couple Paleo books but the side dishes/veggie dishes aren't that great. Many are mushroom-based.

Nice! That's exactly the type of thing I'm looking for.

As much as most people don't like bb.com, the recipes are still applicable.

For times I craved sugar, they helped with keto brownies at 1g of carbs.
Check the recipe section. It was helpful for my keto diet.

Rutabaga French Fries

1 Rutabaga, sliced into fries.
Salt, pepper, chili powder, cayan pepper to taste
Some oil

Coat the fries in oil, sprinkle spices on, and bake at 400F for about 40 minutes. Oven temps and fry size vary, so keep an eye on them towards the end, they burn quick once they get close to being done.

Not 100% french fry, but very flavorful, fewer carbs than sweet potato fries, and liven up hamburger night quite a bit.
