Make a fun twist on your traditional mashed potatoes by adding in some mustard.

Some pro tips…
Use Yukon potatoes if you want an extra creamy mash. And for a richer tasting mash, add some cream cheese to the mix.

Southern cabbage is a healthy veggie side that goes wonderfully with pork wellington.
And it’s super easy to make – you only need five ingredients! Although you can use more if you want to customize it a bit.
Carrots, green pepper, and thinly sliced onions all make great additions.
And if you want some heat, sprinkle a few red pepper flakes in.
Mustard cream sauce
Spruce up your pork wellington with this smooth mustard cream sauce (every roast dish needs a sauce, right?!).

Creamy snap peas
These snap peas are light and crispy – making them perfect for a hot summer’s day when you don’t want anything too heavy.
They’re dressed in a creamy dressing, but with some added tang from lemon juice and dill.
Plus they have bacon bits in the mix, which adds some smokiness.
You can get these creamy snap peas on the table in less than 30 minutes.
Cauliflower gratin is a great make-ahead side that you can prep for busy days.
It’s indulgent – but so is pork wellington!
And it’s packed with cheesy goodness.
Here’s a basic recipe, but don’t be afraid to experiment a bit.
Add some caramelized onions for a little sweetness, or roast the broccoli first instead of boiling it.
Go crazy with the cheeses too! I’m partial to a sprinkling of blue cheese.
Wild rice pilaf
You might think rice is too simple for a stand-out pork wellington, but sometimes a simple side is what you need to let the main shine.
And this wild rice is actually packed with flavor from the vegetable broth it’s cooked in.
Psst… add chopped pecans and dried cranberries to give it a holiday twist.

Garlic green beans
Green beans are a quick and easy dish that you can get done in 20 minutes.
They’ll add a lovely pop of color next to your pork wellington, as well as plenty of yummy garlic (that smells SO irresistible)
The dish also features freshly grated parmesan and a spritz of lemon to add some acidity.
You can’t go wrong with a healthy veggie side like garlic green beans.
Spring vegetable salad
After making a pork wellington, you may well be all cooked out.
So an easy no-cook salad can look mighty appealing!
This spring vegetable salad is full of fresh, healthy ingredients like asparagus, radish, and spinach.
And the bright lemon vinaigrette will balance out the savory notes from the pork.

An easy applesauce is a fantastic side for pork wellington.

Roasted baby potatoes
A sophisticated dish like pork wellington needs an equally elegant side.
And these roasted baby potatoes are the perfect mini delights!
They’re crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, and incredibly buttery.
They’ll soak up any gravy you have on the plate too. YUM!
Raw beet salad
A 15-minute raw beet salad is an excellent side to whip up when you want to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen.
The vibrant colors look really appetizing, and the earthy flavor of the beetroot matches well with the mushroom in your wellington.

Grilled baby bok choy
Another simple entry, this one is a little unusual because you normally see bok choy served with Chinese dishes.
But it’s got a lot going for it.
It’s crisp, light, cooks in just a few minutes, and looks pretty impressive.
It’s also got a nice kick of heat to it because of the red pepper flakes in the marinade.

You can’t serve a classic British main like pork wellington without having an apple crumble for dessert.
