THE EASIEST VEGETABLE SIDE DISH EVER
Now, this rice cooker vegetable recipe is a riff on one of the most iconic veggie recipes of all time: oven roasted root vegetables. It’s one of the best side dishes whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving or just sitting down to any plain-old weekday meal.
However, sometimes cranking the oven to broil (and heating up your kitchen in the process) just isn’t in the cards.
Therefore, we’ve got a kitchen hack that produces a savory, sweet and earthy vegetable side dish with the simple press of a button!
Sure, it’s easy to make from scratch… But the real takeaway from this rustic root vegetables recipe has got to be the flavor.
Root veggies like carrots and parsnips have a natural sweetness that is offset by earthy and mineral notes. Put those together with some peeled and chopped potatoes – some olive oil and savory chicken stock – and you’ve got a vegetable side dish worth putting on the table!
