This is wonderful with fish or grilled chicken.
The longer this sits in the refrigerator the better it gets.

NOTE:
If you cannot find Famous Dave’s you can use any bread and butter pickle juice.

How to Make Garlicky marinated vegetables

Step-by-Step

  1. Once you saved enough of the juice from the pickles “ I freeze it till I know I have enough” put the juice into a large soup pot and set aside.
  2. Pull the carrots and green beans out to defrost, you won't need to par cook these.
  3. In a separate pot put enough water in the pot so you can par-boil the cauliflower and broccoli.
  4. While you are waiting for the water to come to a rolling boil “you won’t need to salt the water “cut the heads off the cauliflower and broccoli.
  5. Get 2 large bowl’s of ice water to stop the cooking. Once the water is boiling, cook the cauliflower, for no more than 30 -45 seconds, remove and put into the ice water to stop the cooking.
  6. Then next do the broccoli for about 20 – 30 seconds and remove from the water and put in a separate ice water bath.
  7. Get the pickle juice warm “not hot “by simmering on the stove. Once it starts to simmer turn off the stove.
  8. Drain the par-boiled vegetables on paper towels.
  9. Put the pickle juice in a large bowl; add the carrots, green beans, cauliflower and broccoli. Mix with a spoon making sure the vegetables are all covered with the juice
  10. Mix the onion, smashed garlic, salt, pepper & red pepper in a small bowl.
  11. Once this is thoroughly mixed add to the vegetables and mix once again.
  12. Cover and put into the refrigerator for at least 2 days “ or longer if you can wait “ to marinade
  13. When you are ready to serve drain from the liquid and check for seasoning “ see if you need more salt and pepper”.
