Smoky Maple Baked Beans; Roasted Broccoli Medley

The baked beans are not quite done yet, but I do not think I like this recipe.   For one, it’s got four different sweeteners in it (maple syrup, molasses, honey, and sugar), and I like my savory foods *savory*.  For another, I think I may have burned it.  We’ll see.

[Post-tasting notes: the beans were atrocious.  I have thrown them out.  What a waste of bacon!  For excellent baked beans, try Alton Brown’s Once And Future Beans.]

The Roasted Broccoli Medley is misnamed (broccoli medley implies several varieties of broccoli – this is a vegetable medley containing broccoli) but simple and good.

  • 1 head broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 each large red and green bell peppers, sliced
  • 4-5 large cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Italian herb blend

Toss everything together in a big bowl, then roast at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until veggies are slightly softened and well browned.

The veggies tonight are going onto open-faced sandwiches and topped with melted provolone.  Mmmmm, cheese!
