Apple Molasses Roasted Vegetables

by zesty on September 22, 2009 · 12 comments

Last weekend I was playing around in the kitchen and created something unique with some root vegetables and fresh grape tomatoes.

Ever get tired of tasting the same old vegetables with your dinner? I do sometimes so I wanted to kick it up a notch with a funky glaze for some plain ole vegetables. The title pretty much sums it up but I did add a few more ingredients than just apple and molasses.

Have you guys noticed how few ingredients I have been using as of late? I have not even been trying to keep it to a minimum  – I guess I am just lazy!

Below is the low-down on the recipe that hopefully you will try. I realized as I was shooting this that a green vegetable would have been a nice addition. I will mention that in the zesty tip down below.

Ingredients

  • Carrots
  • Squash
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Turnip
  • 1/4 Cup Molasses
  • 1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Apple Juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • Black Pepper

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees
  2. Prepare all vegetables ( clean, peel and chop )
  3. raw_veggies

  4. Combine soy sauce, molasses and brown sugar into a bowl and mix well.
  5. raw_veggies

  6. Add apple juice and black pepper and pour over vegetables
  7. raw_veggies

  8. Cover and bake until fork tender – About 45 minutes.
  9. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Roasting Vegetables intensify the natural flavors.  Different from boiling, roasting actually will enhance the flavors you choose to match with the vegetables. Try to combine root vegetables with this dish as opposed to leafy vegetables due to the cooking time.  Green vegetables would work well in this dish as well.

I hope you have a great day and stay tuned for another house update in the near future as well as a super fun product review.  Talk to you tomorrow.

Take care
