Roasted Fall Veggie Platter with Black Truffle Aioli

This Roasted Veggie Platter with fall veggies like purple sweet potatoes, rainbow carrots, Dr. Praeger's brussels sprouts cakes, and golden beets are served with two dipping sauces: first, a black truffle aioli (Oh My Goodness... sooooo dang good!), and second, a pumpkin mustard. This platter makes the perfect party appetizer or mid-day snack. 

OK. First, a confession. 

I never had a brussels sprout, like not even one bite... until I was 30. 

My parents just never made me. 

I also never had a real cherry until I was 30. Can you tell 30 was a big  year for me / a turning point in my life?!?!

So ironically, the first time I DO remember having a brussels sprout was with my parents. I was in my 30s they were in their 50s/60s. And we were at one of their favorite restaurants, for a quick weekday lunch, having a glass of red wine... and they ordered the balsamic roasted brussel sprouts with truffle aioli dipping sauce. I thought I'd hate them (the brussels, not my parents LOL)... but seriously, it was like heaven on a plate.

The crispy edges of the brussels.

The soft creamy texture of the aioli.

The wine.

The view from the patio. 

The conversation.

So when I first heard about Dr. Praeger's new Brussels Sprouts Cakes, I knew I had to recreate that aioli and flavor combination from the restaurant!

You know me... I love celebrating colorful, delicious food --- and I love fall. So I threw together a full fall veggie platter along with the brussels sprouts cakes. 

On this platter:

  • Golden Beets
  • Purple Sweet Potatoes
  • Rainbow Carrots
  • Yellow Bell Peppers
  • Asiago Cheese Sticks
  • Brussels Sprouts Cakes

Plus two dipping sauces: the black truffle aioli and a pumpkin mustard.

The flavors are intense. And satisfying. And full bodied. And delish. And I hope you love them as much as we do.

Tell me... 

Did you eat brussels sprouts as a kid?

Do you eat them now?

Description

Roasted Fall Veggie Platter with Black Truffle Aioli

Ingredients

3  
Dr. Praeger's Brussels Sprouts Cakes
1  
yellow bell pepper
1  
small purple sweet potato (peeled and sliced into rounds)
2  
rainbow carrots (peeled and sliced into rounds)
1  
Golden beet (peeled and sliced into rounds)
1  
small piece of a shallot (outer paper-y layers removed)
1 tablespoon
extra virgin olive oil
   
salt and pepper
3⁄4 cups
avocado oil mayo ((for the aioli))
1 tablespoon
black truffle oil ((or sub white truffle oil--- for the aioli))
2 teaspoons
balsamic glaze ((for the aioli))
1 tablespoon
chopped roasted shallot ((for the aioli))
2 tablespoons
pumpkin butter ((for the mustard sauce))
1 tablespoon
grainy mustard ((for the mustard sauce))
6  
asiago cheese sticks (or other cracker you want to serve)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. On a parchment lined baking sheet, lay out the bell pepper, sweet potatoes, carrots, shallot, and beet rounds in a single layer. Brush with olive oil then sprinkle with a little bit of sea salt and pepper.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until softened and slightly browned. 
  4. Meanwhile, make the aioli dipping sauce by whisking together the avocado oil mayo, truffle oil, and balsamic glaze. When the veggies are finished roasting, dice the cooked shallot and add 1 tbsp of the dices into the aioli. 
  5. Make the pumpkin mustard by combining the pumpkin butter and grainy mustard in a small bowl. 
  6. Cook the Dr. Praeger's brussels sprouts cakes according to the package --- I prefer the stovetop method with a bit of olive oil. Heat, then cut them in half for serving on the platter. 
  7. Serve the roasted veggies with the cakes and cheese sticks on a platter with both dipping sauces. 
  8. Enjoy!
