Ryan Littman, executive chef at JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas, shares these two side dishes, which pair well with grass-fed bison meatloaf with orange chipotle glaze (find his recipes in the November 2013 issue of Triathlete magazine).

Mashed Creamy Cauliflower

Ingredients
1 head of cau­li­flower florets
1 small, 8-ounce con­tainer of low-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 cloves gar­lic, chopped
1 shal­lot, chopped
Salt and white pep­per to taste

Directions
In a medium pot, bring salted water to boil. Add cau­li­flower to the boil­ing water and let cook until very tender, about 8–10 minutes. Strain florets in colander. Using a food proces­sor, com­bine the cau­li­flower with the Greek yogurt, gar­lic and shal­lots, and blend until a creamy con­sis­tency. Stir in by hand the shredded Parmesan cheese, and add salt and pep­per to taste.

Roasted Carrots

Wash carrots thoroughly under cold water. No need to peel them. Brush generously with olive oil, season with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Roast in 450-degree oven until browned and natural sugars are caramelized.
