Roasted Veggies with Horseradish Cream

This recipe was written and created by The Yummy Vegan

I love all kinds of Roasted Vegetables all year round. They tend to be more popular to serve during the Holidays. Why not jazz them up this year with a deliciously sharp but slightly sweet Cream Sauce? It’s so easy to make, and it really adds great flavor to the Veggies. The best part is, it can and actually should be made ahead so it’ll be one less thing to do on the big day. This recipe calls for Brussels Sprouts, Parsnips, and Golden Beets, but Sweet or Regular Potatoes would make a good addition or substitute.

Ingredients
• 2 Medium Parsnips
• 16 oz of Brussels Sprouts
• 2 medium Golden Beets
• 1 Tbsp of dried Thyme
• 1 Tbsp of grape Seed Oil
• Salt & Pepper
Horseradish Cream Sauce
• 1 cup of Vegan Sour Cream ( I love Tofutti brand)
• 2 tsp of Dijon Mustard
• 4 Tbsp of Bubbies prepared Horseradish
• 1-2 tsp of Beefree Honee or Agave Syrup
• Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions
1. The day before serving: Mix the Sour Cream, Horseradish, Dijon Mustard, Beefree Honee, Salt & Pepper together well and refrigerate for 24 hrs. This will give the flavors time to come together.
2. Wash, trim and cut the Brussels Sprouts in half and peel the Parsnips and Beets and cut them into smallish cubes (about the same size as the halved Brussels).
3. Toss the Veggies with a bit of OIl, Dried Thyme, Salt & Pepper, and Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until all the veggies are tender.
4. Serve warm with the Horseradish Cream.

Do you remember when fried pickles first became a “thing”?

Most of my friends were grossed out by them, but I was obsessed. When they started to pop up at local bars or chain restaurants, I was usually the only person in the group who wanted to order them.

I think fried pickles are very much a love them or hate them kind of food. And I’m definitely on the love ’em team.

I’ve always been a huge lover of pickles. I love pickled anything, and can’t get enough of the briny and acidic flavor. And fried pickles? Now that’s just next-level. They’re the perfect finger food or bar snack. Crunchy, salty, savory, and tangy all in one bite.

There is one caveat to my pickle loving ways, though. I only like dill pickles.

And Bubbies are my favorite. Bubbies makes the absolute best naturally fermented dill pickles. They contain no sugar, vinegar, or preservatives and they have the perfect blend of spices.

I think you can really taste the difference with Bubbies’ pickles. I’m a huge fan of all of their products, actually, including Bubbies sauerkraut, horseradish, and spicy pickles.

And Bubbies kosher dill pickles make the very best fried pickles!

Fried pickles are fairly easy to make. The batter is everything you likely have in your pantry — flour, salt, spices — and a few fridge staples. 

The perfect dip to these pickles is a cool and creamy homemade ranch dip. This dip comes together in just minutes and is complemented by a kick of heat from Sriracha.

No matter who you put this plate of fried pickles in front of, it’s impossible to resist. Serve these pickles at your next game night, backyard shindig, or your version of weekday happy hour!
