Comforting side dish of Autumn Vegetables with sweet balsamic glaze, perfect for the holidays!Inspired by True Food Kitchen in Scottsdale, Arizona


  • 1 small head cauliflower - cut into florets (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cups brussel sprouts - trimmed, ends cut off, and halved (I love the Trader Joe's 16 oz. bags)
  • 4-5 carrots - peeled and sliced into 1 inch pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 can - 15 ounce white beans (cannelloni or navy), rinsed and drained
  • .5 cup golden raisins

Balsamic Glaze:

  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots - about 1 large shallot
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar - or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Toss the cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and carrots in a large bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and layer the vegetables evenly over the paper. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning a couple times during baking so the vegetables don't burn. *Test one of each vegetable to make sure they're soft.
  • While the veggies are cooking, make the balsamic glaze. In a small saucepan, melt the vegan butter over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until shallots are soft, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low, let shallots cook for 1 more minute, then add the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, vegetable stock, agave and lemon juice. Bring to a slow boil on low heat and cook until the glaze is reduced by half, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and let the sauce sit for 5 minutes.
  • Return the cooked vegetables to the large bowl. Add the can of white beans and golden raisins to the vegetable mix and stir. Set aside.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the vegetable mix and stir to coat. Best served immediately.
