roasted vegetables in balsamic butter sauce
A long time ago, when Trader Joe’s was close to me, I tried a sample of their Roasted Vegetables in Balsamic Butter Sauce with a dollop of creme fraiche. I loved it. Ever since then, when I would visit the store, I would always get a few bags to put in my freezer. But, you know, sometimes you’re at the store, not Trader Joe’s, and you really want those vegetables with no time to go and get them. That’s when you get the stuff you need and make your own. Now, I’m going to share with you my take on these wonderful roasted vegetables with balsamic butter sauce.

This is actually a great way to use up vegetables that are sitting in your produce drawer that might not be the freshest in the world. If you don’t like the vegetables in this mix, you can surely leave out the ones you don’t like, or add more that you do. If you like green beans, add a whole bunch of them – if you like mushrooms, then add a whole bunch of those. The variety is endless.

I will say, however, that butter is really important here. Please don’t use margarine because it does not have the same mouthfeel that butter does. Please use unsalted butter. Don’t forget, the sauce has soy sauce, so it already has salt – no need to have more from salted butter.

You can get pearl onions in your grocer’s frozen vegetable section, and I suggest you do. In my opinion, getting the skin off of pearl onions is a pain. Do yourself a favor and just get the frozen ones.

    Just had to come back and say how good this was. I’ve put it in my regular routine. So sad about Trader Joe’s not having these anymore, but these come super close.

    When was the last time you bought this at a Trader Joe’s store? Last time I went I was told it was discontinued. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

      The last time I bought it had to be about two or more years ago. I’ve tried to be very true to the original, so if you like it, please let me know.
