Winter Vegetable Wreath

Winter Vegetable Wreath

This is a beautiful and healthy side dish for the holidays. YOU CAN PICK WHICH VEGETABLES YOU WANT TO INCLUDE. Just pick a variety of colors. Prepare the vegetables ahead of time and assemble just before serving.

  • Yield: 12 servings ( Serving Size: 1 cup )
  • Cook time: 1 Hour


  • 1 head(s) Cauliflower
  • 1 head(s) Broccoli
  • 1/2 pound(s) Brussel Sprouts
  • 1/2 pound(s) Green Beans, fresh
  • 12 ounce(s) Carrots, baby
  • 4 Beets, small
  • 3/4 cup(s) Butter, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup(s) Wine, white
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) Pepper


Trim the cauliflower, leaving only enough of the core to keep the florets intact. Separate the broccoli florets from the stalk.

In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the vegetables one at a time. Remove, run under cold water and drain.

1. Cauliflower - 10 min

2. Brussel sprouts - 5 min

3. Broccoli - 2-3 min

4. Green Beans - 5 min

5. Carrots - 12 min

6. Beets - 25 min (Slip skins off beets and slice)

Refrigerate each vegetable in a separate container until 1 hour before serving. Let vegetables return to room temperature before proceeding. Place cauliflower in the center of a heatproof platter and arrange others around, like a wreath. Melt butter, add wine, tarragon and salt and pepper. Simmer 1 min.

Moisten vegetables with 1/4 of butter. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes or until warm.
