Nice side dish
These Veggies in Apricot and Thyme Sauce would make a great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner: earthy and rich while being filled with veggie goodness.
The pretty colors of the baked veggies are just remarkable.
The sauce itself is full of flavor and complexity: sweet apricots, earthy thyme, full flavored balsamic vinegar, luscious sticky honey, and garlic.
And, it smells awesome while it bakes.
I served this for dinner the other day with a nice peppercorn rubbed barramundi. Simple. Nice. Basic. Tasty!
It would also be wonderful with a salt and pepper seared tofu steak.
Make it a meal by serving these veggies with Smokehouse Style Slow Cooker Beef and Some Air Fryer Green Beans.
I love making a fun and delicious side dish that knocks it out of the park. This one is just that.
Potatoes and carrots baked up in a complex rich sauce. It’s perfect to serve with a nice Sunday family dinner. And the whole family will love it.
