From mac & cheese to pesto, these kits provide a practical way to prepare restaurant-worthy side dishes in just a few minutes. Every kit is easy to prepare, even for the most novice of home cooks. And did we mention they’re delicious? 

Whether you need shortcuts for your busy weeknights or an easy gourmet side to pair with your fancy main course, there’s something for all tastes. Get to know each kit more below.

The Taylor Farms Cauliflower Mac ‘n Cheese Roast Kit package, showing raw cauliflower florets and an image of the prepared dish with cauliflower florets covered in a cheesy sauce.

Long enshrined in the (unofficial) comfort foods hall of fame, mac & cheese can come in many forms and styles — including mac and cheese without the mac. Case in point: our rich, creamy, entirely comforting Cauliflower Mac ‘n Cheese Roast Kit that swaps out traditional macaroni for perfectly-sized cauliflower florets. You may be well aware of the low-carb versatility cauliflower provides as a substitute in classic recipes, but this may be its biggest win yet. This kit has everything you need to quickly assemble an irresistible dish made with roasted Taylor Farms cauliflower florets and a decadently cheesy sauce that’s about to become your new favorite mac & cheese.

For those who prefer their mac & cheese loaded up with more favorite ingredients (i.e., bacon) check out this Loaded Cauliflower Mac N Cheese recipe featuring this kit. 

The Taylor Farms package showing raw broccoli florets and an image of a prepared version of this dish with toasted breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and Caesar sauce.

Caesar dressing has been a beloved companion to leafy greens like romaine for decades, but it also happens to pair perfectly with another green veggie: broccoli. Our Broccoli Caesar Roast Kit showcases the rich, savory flavors of our creamy Caesar dressing over freshly roasted Taylor Farms broccoli florets, all topped with just the right amount of parmesan cheese and toasted breadcrumbs that provide a satisfying bit of crunch. Think of it as the warm and inviting comfort food version of a Caesar salad — and it goes with a wide range of main dishes and sides.

The Taylor Farms French Onion Green Beans Roast Kit package, showing whole green beans, French onion sauce, and crispy fried onions.

It doesn’t get much easier than this! Our French Onion Green Beans Roast Kit combines fresh, roasted green beans with a delectable French onion sauce and crispy fried onions for a quick, foolproof side dish that could easily steal the spotlight away from its fellow co-stars on the table. Simply roast the green beans in the oven, toss them with the French onion sauce, throw some fried onions on top, and you’ve got a modern version of a classic seasonal dish you can actually serve outside of holidays. 

Did we mention how well it goes with steak? We’ve got the recipe to prove it — bookmark this French Onion Style Green Beans and Steak recipe for later.

The Taylor Farms Air Fry Spicy Maple Brussels package, showing halved Brussels sprouts and spicy maple sauce.

Brussels sprouts may not be one of the first foods to pop into your head when you think about maple (or an air fryer!), but this kit will definitely change that. First, you’ll use your air fryer to get a nice char on the Brussels sprouts to bring out the natural sugars and caramelize the edges while staying tender inside. Then you’ll toss them with the included sweet, savory, and slightly spicy maple sauce that’s kissed with a bit of cayenne pepper for just the right amount of kick. The only step left? That would be the most important one: enjoying your Spicy Maple Brussels Sprouts that took you only 10 minutes to prepare. 

These Brussels sprouts can complement a ton of different courses, but we love it with salmon. Try out this Air Fryer Spicy Maple Brussels Sprouts and Salmon recipe to taste for yourself. 

Taylor Farms Cheesy Pesto Riced Cauliflower & Broccoli Sauté Kit featured image

Offering a plant-based twist on traditional pesto dishes with a fraction of the carbs, this flavorful blend of riced cauliflower and broccoli is generously coated in parmesan cheese and our vibrant Cheesy Lemon Pesto Sauce. Plus, it’s ready in under 10 minutes, so the agonizing wait is a rather short one. Simply sauté the veggies, add in the parmesan and sauce, and voila — a rich, creamy side dish bursting with familiar Italian-inspired flavors, all joined together in cheesy harmony. 

This kit also offers an easy way to make easy pancetta cracker hors d’oeuvres. Simply prepare the Cheesy Pesto Riced Cauliflower and Broccoli Kit and place a spoonful on top of your desired brand of cracker rounds. Top with diced tomato, roasted bits of pancetta, basil leaves, and grated parmesan, and you’re left with a quaint, bite-sized appetizer packed with flavor that’s perfect for parties or any other get-together.
