These Cider Glazed Vegetables are a great addition for a side item for either nightly dinner or dinner parties! They are one of my favorite easy vegetable recipes. This post is written in partnership with The Produce Gathering, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Glazing beautiful vegetables may be one of my favorite ways to serve them. I love the sweetness paired with the vegetables, it gives a wonderful flavor and taste to them. In the past I always make Cider Glazed Carrots but I really had not tried adding additional vegetables to them.
This past week, I decided to mix this recipe up a bit and add fresh green beans that I had picked up at The Produce Gathering. A little bit of green beans, carrots, and sweet onion mixed with cider was a little heavenly combination. My husband loves the sweetness of it. I guess it makes the vegetables taste like candy but in a better for you way.
My kids even love them this way and that’s a bonus for my anti-veggie kids.
These items are frequently in the basket at The Produce Gathering, our local co-op, so it is fabulous to be able to use them easily in a meal for dinner. Of course, I typically go back and forth between cooking them this way and roasting them in the oven with a little bit of olive oil and garlic salt.
Which method do you prefer? Have you tried them with cider? These rank at the top of my list right along with roasted vegetable recipes.
Be sure to head over now and order your produce basket with The Produce Gathering. I typically pick up the family basket along with lots of meat! I love to stock the freezer with meat so that I always have it on hand during the week.
