Maple syrup vegies

Judging by the weather forecast I think its pretty safe to say that is no longer salad for dinner weather so its time to get back into some cooked vegies.  I thought I would share a quick easy alternative to roast/baked veg.

Simply par boil (or fully boil if you forget you have a pot on the stove!!) whatever veg you would normally bake.  I usually do potato, sweet potato, carrot, parsnip etc.  Mix together a crushed clove of garlic, a tablespoon or 2 of whole grain mustard and about 3 tablespoons of maple syrup in a big bowl.  Add in the cooked veg and mix around.  Pop into a baking dish and bake in the oven on about 180 for about half an hour.  Easy!!

Don't be put off by the weird ingredients, when it is cooked it is really yummy!!  I think this may be a Weight Watchers recipe but I got it off a family member so I am no too sure!!

On Saturday I did a little post about having to go for the 2 hour fasting glucose test for gestational diabetes this coming Saturday and I am asking everyone who pops in this week to send me some positive vibes for a negative outcome this time around!!

Have a great week Open Slatherers!! 

Linking up with One Mother Hen for some Monday fun!!

  2. All the best with your blood test, don't do what I did and have a big Milo one hour before - one way to get a false positive on gestational diabetes ;-)

  3. Sounds like a great change for veggies - will have to give it a try except use honey instead of syrup.
    Have a great day !

  7. I usually roast those veggies too, but I hadn't thought about par boiling them first. I think I'll try that. And good luck with the test! I'll be sending you good vibes across an ocean or two...
