I got a new cookbook! It's called The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without and is pretty amazing. I read about it on a blog I read called Carrots N' Cake. The author of that blog LOVES this cookbook and inspired me to get it myself. I'm so glad I did! The cookbook is filled with vegetable dishes - mostly side dishes, but I've used a couple for entrees.
So far I've made 4 recipes from it:
- Mollie's Quite Surprising Mashed Parsnips
- Oven "Fried" Sweet Potatoes
- Dramatically Seared Green Beans
- Tarragon-Pecan Asparagus
My favorite recipe that I have made was the Tarragon-Pecan Asparagus. Making this recipe was my first time using balsamic vinegar. Really adds a lot of flavor, which I never knew. One mistake I made, though, was not stirring the nuts enough as I was sauteing them and they ended up a little burnt on one side. Still good, though!
Next up, I'm going to make Roasted Butternut Squash with Roasted Walnut Oil and Pomegranate Seeds. Yum!
