OT What veggie to sous vide OT

Hey guys, cooking prime rib next weekend would like to sous vide a veggie.  Was thinking either brussel sprouts, or carrots. What do the pros recommend? Plan on making deviled eggs, twice bake potato casserole and grillsome bread, with maybe a crab bisque for starters. 


  • Not a pro. I just cook. 

    Carrots. Maple syrup, ginger, S & P.

    Carrots for sure. Butter, brown sugar, S&P is another way to go.

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn.

    We like sv carrots a lot.  butter salt pepper and a small squeeze of honey 185 for an hour.  Screaming hot skillet for some browning when done.

    not sure I see the point of Sous Vide for any veggie.

    The point is you can cook the veggie to a precise doneness without over cooking it. And hold it at that temp while you finish the rest of the meal.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    Asaparagus 180+- 15 minutes , Carrots baby) 190 about 30, never thought I'd SV veggies, but IMO they are so much better...right there with properly steaming, boiling just looses to much

    I use my SV regularly for veggies. Mostly because it's a weeknight and I have small children, a business, too many hobbies and I still want to eat real food.

    LEFTOVERS. Take thanksgiving. I shucked 3 dozen ears of corn and made huge amounts of fresh creamed corn. Then I take my leftovers and freeze in 1/2-3/4lb vac sealed bags. I had 4 bags this year. I also did the same with green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and hashbrown casserole (all pre-toppings) Now I just pick a couple veggies and a protien. I turn my SV on when I come home at lunch and I throw it all in the SV at 140. Get home all I have to do is put the casseroles into dishes and top them, only need them to crisp the tops and sear the meat. Dinner is on the table in 20-30 minutes after getting home with only about 5-10 minutes of active cooking time.

    Carrots are obligatory. You convert so much more starch to sugar and it totally changes the flavor profile IMO. Its so much more... carrot...

    Sweet potato casserole, but sous vide the potatoes instead of boiling and you will retain so much more flavor. Same with mashed potatoes. I SV mine with butter and cream already added!
