Looking for the perfect oven-roasted mixed vegetables recipe for Thanksgiving, or just for a healthy family dinner side dish? Try this one. It features winter vegetables in a lightly sweetened glaze made from maple syrup and butter or vegan margarine.

Heat up your oven and toss together a mix of sweet potatoes, cauliflowers, and Brussels sprouts into a healthy and simple vegetable side dish to accompany any meal. It's also the perfect light side dish for your Thanksgiving or Christmas meal. Kids don't like Brussels sprouts? Swap them out for carrots or just add more sweet potatoes and cauliflower. This is an extremely versatile dish that works well with just about any root vegetable. Any kind of potato or turnip would work well and you can even make this dish with daikon (Japanese radish). 

This vegetable side dish is completely vegetarian, and you can use vegan margarine instead of butter to make these oven-roasted vegetables vegan and a bit lighter, lower in fat, and cholesterol-free. And with nothing more than vegetables, butter, maple syrup and a bit of salt and pepper, this side dish is suitable for those on a gluten-free diet.

Ingredients

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

  3. In a small microwavable bowl, place the butter or vegan margarine, maple syrup, salt and pepper and microwave on low setting, just until the butter or vegan margarine is melted. Give it a quick stir to combine everything.

  4. Immediately (before it cools!) pour this maple glaze over vegetables and sweet potatoes and gently toss it all together to coat the vegetables and sweet potatoes as evenly as possible.
