Mashed potatoes with chives would be perfect.
Axoa is a typical Basque stew. The word axoa means “minced”: as expected, the dish is therefore made from minced meat. Traditionally, it is eaten on special occasions, however you also find it served throughout the year. The meat (normally veal but sometimes beef) is served with steamed potatoes or rice.
This recipe is more of a summer dish because it features peppers.
It is high in protein. A side of mashed potatoes is an excellent choice. You can also opt for rice or bulgur, or a small mixed salad.
