    So sometime I end up with too many veggies and rather than let them go bad I try to cook them and preserve them.

    This time I had too much cauliflower and carrots. So I did two different things. Made mexican pickled veggies and balsamic roasted veggies.

    Same veggies two different tastes

    Balsamic Roasted Veggies
    Any veggie. This is cauliflower, carrot, garlic, onion
    2 T balsamic vinegar
    2 T dijon mustard
    2 T olive oil
    Salt & pepper to taste
    Whip it till creamy toss with veggies, cook 30-40 min @ 475. Turn veggies over half way thru.

    Mexican Pickled Veggies
    Same vegetables
    1C vinegar
    1 C water
    2T coriander
    10 peppercorns
    2T oregano
    5 Bay leaves
    2 fresh jalapeño
    3 cloves garlic
    Bring water, vinegar spices to boil, add veggies onion, cauliflower, jalapenos, carrots... use whatever you have on hand.
    Reduce heat, simmer for 15 min.
    Remove from heat let cool to room temp. Put in jar and refrigerate. Ready to eat after it sits for 3 hours. 24 hours is better tasting.

    Those Balsamic Roasted Veggies will cure whatever ails you with all that garlic. It looks amazing. Great recipes.

    I really was just trying to show that same veggies with differ condiments can make different meals.
