This is the time of year when I love to experiment with recipes. It’s fun making our traditional family recipes but it’s also nice to find a new recipe that may become a new traditional dish. I found this Roasted Vegetables with Walnut Vinaigrette recipe in Food and Wine magazine and couldn’t wait to try it.
This dish starts with the freshest vegetables!
I used carrots, brussels sprouts, and cauliflower to follow this recipe. But you can also use other veggies like broccoli or asparagus. I simply mixed each of these vegetables separately with olive oil and salt & pepper and roasted them for 20-30 minutes
While the veggies were roasted I mixed together the vinaigrette. This again uses fresh ingredients like walnuts, parsley, and orange zest.
Roasted brussels sprouts are one of my favorite veggies. These are even delicious just like this without the sauce. Or make this Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta recipe — it’s fabulous!
Add the Walnut Vinaigrette to the veggies for a delightful way to enjoy a side dish for Thanksgiving or any time of the year.
