Reviews for Maple-Gingerroot Vegetables
"Excellent recipe! The chopping takes awhile but the results were worth it. Both my kids loved it. I wish I had added garlic and I also skipped the sweet onion, which I wish I had included. I used 2 turnips, 4 parsnips, one rutaga, most of a red onion, and sliced baby carrots. So good! The maple really brought out the flavor and any recipe without potatoes is one my husband loves! A keeper."
"Delicious! I made this exactly as written for a family dinner."
"These tasted great! I served them with a turkey dinner ... added the leftover veggies (cut in small pieces) to the turkey soup the next day ... they added great flavour to the soup."
"Yum! Made almost as directed except substituted gold potatoes for the turnips and rutabaga. Also left out the red onion and added several cloves of minced garlic. Paired this with a venison roast and it stole the show! The vegetables had just the right hint of sweet and absolutely melted in your mouth. Will be enjoying this all winter long!"
