I made this last week and they are yummy. I followed the directions exactly and the veggies were tender and scrumptious, not to mention very pretty. My only recommendation is don't throw away the beet greens, steam them and eat them on the side. That was my fave part.
sorry, I'm new to this group. How can I find the recipe?Thanks!
I added an onion to my veggies and thought they came out quite tasty. Perhaps they could have cooked a bit longer though because the brussel sprouts were still a bit hard (maybe thats just how brussel sprouts are though)??? This was my first attempt at cooking them!
I am all for supporting the publishing industry. So, I say go ahead and buy this awesome cookbook. The Food You Crave, by Ellie Krieger. However, I think that others have found some of the recipes on the Food Network website.
Eek! I haven't made mine yet. /Clara
For those who have made it already, when you roasted the veggies (carrots, sprouts and garlic)...did you cover it with aluminum foil too?
I didn't cover my other veggies with foil and I cooked them for the amount of time specified and they were tender.
MIne were really yummy, although I didn't add the brussels sprouts. My Todd was not feeling well and they always upset his tummy. I bet they were scrumptious with them added though.
To get your brussel sprouts roasting faster, make a little X on the stem side. It gets them nice and juicy in much less time. LOVE THEM.As for the recipe, if you don't have the book yet, definitely rent it from the library. It's worth the money ($32 or something), but I totally hear ya if you want to ask for it for Christmas. Ellie has a lot of food info besides recipes, which makes the book really worthwhile.
These were great, I love roasted anything. I used parsnips and turnips in place of the beets, since I didn't feel like messing with the "bloody" beets on a weeknight. :o)
