Root Vegetable Pave
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours + standing
As I have a guest coming for Thanksgiving who is allergic to potatoes I made a test recipe substituting two medium kolirabi and a smallish rutabaga for the potatoes and slightly increased the amount of cheese (personal taste). It came out wonderful. Will try again as written for a vegetarian dinner soon.
Rating 4 for the beauty and ingredient list ... I have made veggie pressed like this in a springform pan, and its simple and always beautifully presented. All comments are great and will make a day ahead and love turnips and have a mandolin --- Thanksgiving 2020! Will update after it made, and have huge expectations (btw, it probably didn't work well as a pie!)
i followed everything it said, and it was just poorly randomly baked veggies in a pie tin. it didnt not look like the pie at all. everyone laughed at me :(
This is as tasty as it is beautiful. I loved it as is, but I grew up eating raw fennel so I have an acquired taste for it. As for assembly, it can be time consuming if you don't have a mandoline. They are inexpensive these days and are a great addition to your kitchen equipment.
We did not make a Thanksgiving Dinner due to construction. I wanted to cook a Turkey Breast and a Side Dish on Saturday. I saw this and tried it. I thought it was amazing. While you must have a Mandoline to make this (slice thin), it is a fairly easy recipe. The prep time and cooking time are accurate. I believe it is even better the second day, so you might make a day ahead, refrigerate, slice and they warm in the oven so that the top remains “crunchy”.
Au contraire, just as a contrast to the Nov. 11th comment, these recipes are right up to Taste of Homes standards and great for getting away from boring ordinary fare. My recipe file is filled with TOH scrumptious dishes like these.
These 35 recipes, with the possible exception of the spinach salad, are the WORST collection I've ever seen. There would be something else to be grateful for if I were served these awful dishes--that Thanksgiving comes but once a year!
I haven't made this yet. I just have a question...you serve this dish cold without re-heating?
