Abbey has come up with 3 delicious new ways to transform your vegetables from boring to extraordinary using honey Dijon mustard.
As a dietitian Abbey spends a lot of her days talking about thing like fiber, mindful eating, and of course eating your vegetables. Most of you out there, including your kids, will be a lot more excited about eating your cake than you are about eating your vegetables. The root cause of this issue is that sometimes those vegetables just don’t taste that good. Abbey suggests that you stop boiling your vegetables to death and instead add in lots of flavors so you can get excited about eating them.
Abbey likes adding Maille Honey Dijon Mustard into her vegetables because it adds a huge flavor hit, is only 15 calories per tsp. and has virtually no fat. This is especially true when comparing it to some of the other vegetable vehicles out there like mayonnaise. It is far more versatile that many of the other condiments out there as well, like ketchup for instance. It has that little bit of sweetness to entice even the pickiest of palettes. She has come with 3 unique ways to incorporate honey Dijon mustard into your vegetable sides that will have you and your kids falling in love with spring vegetables.
Abbey’s first recipe is for a Honey Mustard Yogurt Dip. Take a bowl and fill it with plain Greek yogurt, add Maille Honey Dijon Mustard to it, and the juice of half a lemon. Mix that together well and serve it with you favorite vegetables for dipping.
Her next recipe is Honey Mustard Roasted Radishes. Spread your halved radishes out evenly onto a baking sheet and toss them with some extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast these for about 20 minutes stirring once to ensure they brown evenly. Remove them from the oven and toss them with honey Dijon mustard. After tossing your radishes return them to the oven for another 5 minutes to ensure they get sticky and caramelized. When those are properly browned transfer them to a serving platter and garnish them with hazelnuts.
Last but certainly not least is her recipe for a mouthwatering Honey Mustard Spring Pasta Salad. Start by cooking a box of whole grain pasta according to the box instructions. During the last 2 minutes of the pasta cooking time add in asparagus and peas to the pot. In a small bowl mix together some extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, honey Dijon mustard, and a pinch each of salt and pepper to taste. Mix that all together well until you reach a consistency as seen in the video. In a large bowl add your pasta, asparagus and peas with some spinach, cooked chicken breast, strawberries, watermelon radish, avocado, feta cheese, and finally top it all off with the dressing. Toss your salad well and enjoy.
We hope these vegetable side dish ideas will inspire you to liven up your vegetables this spring and as always thank you for watching.
