I served these with last Thanksgiving's dinner, and while the veggies play a decidedly minor role in the feast, we really enjoyed them. I have made them several times since, and make plenty so as to have leftovers for a snack the next day! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Wow, you sure can taste the bourbon. But that's great! This is quick, easy and delicious. I did cut the recipe down to serve 2. And they really do brighten up your plate. I served them with Moroccan Chicken Kebabs / Skewers and Rice Pilaf for a wonderful dinner packed full of flavor. Thanks Lvs2Cook for posting.
