So I'll admit upfront I didn't follow this recipe to a T - basically I found lovely baby turnips at the farmer's market and was looking for a way to prepare them. So using the sauce (although I used agave nectar instead of sorghum), I used a different mix of winter veggies: turnips, butternut squash, brussel sprouts. The flavor combination was quite nice - sweet but not too sweet. The only thing I'd do different would be is to cook the turnips first and longer - they took longer than the squash or the sprouts.

Sorghum—also known as sorghum molasses—is the distinctive, syrupy by-product of sorghum grain. Look for it in specialty stores and gourmet grocers, or substitute molasses.
