Oven-Roasted Vegetable Mix
A vegetarian vegetable side dish of roasted wintery vegetables in a lightly sweetened sauce. This recipe combines sweet potatoes, cauliflowers and Brussels sprouts into a healthy and simple vegetable side dish to accompany any meal. Use vegan margarine instead of butter to make these vegetables vegan and a bit lighter. Suitable for those on a gluten-free diet. Recipe courtesy of North Carolina Sweet Potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/2-inch thick rounds
  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 2 cups florets)
  • 9 ounces Brussels sprouts, halved (about 2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or vegan margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400°F. On rimmed baking pan, evenly scatter sweet potatoes, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. In small microwavable bowl, place butter or vegan margarine, maple syrup, salt and pepper and microwave just until butter is melted.

Pour over vegetables; stir. Cook in oven until tender, about 40 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Makes about 5 1-cup servings.

This dish is really tasty and easy to make. The maple syrup glaze is really nice - subtle, but good. You can taste a hint of the pepper, too. I doubled the recipe and it worked out well as a Thanksgiving side dish. My only adjustment was to the cooking time. When I went to stir at 20 minutes, they were almost overdone already and the vegetables on top were getting a little burnt. I'd say cook for 20 minutes, stirring half way through. And possibly cover them with tin foil for the final 10 minutes to avoid burning on top. I like slightly overcooked vegetables, so it worked out fine for me. (Unfortunately my husband doesn't like any of the vegetables in the recipe, so next time I'm going to try carrots and regular potatoes.)
