vegetable recipes that use prepared horseradish, but don't call for mayo?

Do you have any favourite vegetable recipes that call for prepared horseradish?

Have been looking at some beet & horseradish combinations online- but would love to hear about others.

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. not a vegetable recipe, but this sounds sooo good..

    are you just trying to use it up? you can stir it into mashed potatoes (or other root vegetables), or combine with panko & herbs to make a crust for baked fish fillets.

      I bought a new bottle- but wanted to use it. My cousin was raving about a carrot recipe- but it involved a lot of mayo, and I'm not a fan of cooking with mayo ;-)

      Thanks for the grits recipe- that looks delish. Will have to give that a try, soon!

      Hadn't thought of using it with fish before- usually it's just served with beef at my place, and I haven't been cooking beef for quite a while!

    2. Do you want to avoid all fat, or just mayonnaise? If fat is OK, it's a great addition to a vinaigrette over all sorts of different vegetables.

      If fat's the issue, you could experiment with adding it to lemon juice or other acids to dress vegetables.

        Fat is fine with me, I'm just not a big fan of recipes calling for mayo ;-)

          That's good, then. It's wonderful with sour cream -- better than mayonnaise, in fact. Just on its own, that's a nice dip for vegetables. Crumble some bacon and squeeze lemon into it for a better version of that nasty fake glop in the plastic tubs. This is magnificent on baked potatoes, too.

      2. Quarter some Brussels sprouts and cook them to your liking in a little water or chicken stock. Finish with horseradish. Bacon is very good in this, too, but IMHO, bacon improves everything.

        1. One of my favorite snacks is carrot sticks tossed with horseradish, a bit of vinegar, a bit of sour cream, salt and pepper.
