I am trying to give my vegetables some pizaz (that's a fun word to say..kinda sounds like pizza) instead of simply steaming them or covering them in cheese (mmm...cheese) I feel like a owe them more then that, hence this recipe was born! At first I was scared of vinegar, in my mind vinegar = those nasty salt and vinegar chips...my tongue hurts just thinking about those things...I found though that by combining it with a tad bit of sugar and baking it, it transforms into a magical savory sweet sauce! By adding the sriracha, it gives it a little kick or a lot of kick depending on your spice preference. The oil should keep the vegetable from burning and by brushing them again halfway through, you prevent them from drying out (and you build up flava, yes, flava). This would make a wonderful tasty side to any meal.
