What sides would you serve with duck a l'orange?

roasted beets go well with orange flavor, or just on their own (e.g. https://food52.com/recipes...), rice and/or chestnut dish (here combined in a risotto https://food52.com/recipes...), a simple dish of egg noodles or rice to set off and absorb rich sauces.

I would serve a very simple rice and a great bread to sop it all up. I suppose you need something green, so a simple garlic spinach will do.
Nancy and Susan W, thanks for the answers! Mmm, all of those sides sound delicious... Oh, to choose...
So combine them! I'd make a beet risotto by mixing in some puréed roasted beets towards the end. Maybe a splash of balsamic vinegar which goes well with beets and orange. That way you get the rice to soak up all your sauce and the beautiful beet flavour.
I would have mashed sweet potatoes. Just boíl The sweet potatoes, and mash them with some butter, milk, a pinch of salt and a pinch of nutmeg. It tastes similar to chestnut puree. I would serve a good green salad with it.
Very intriguing! I have some Japanese sweet potatoes in the pantry already--they're drier, lighter in color than the garnet/orange kind, and more reminiscent of chestnuts.
