Charred Root Vegetables with Bagna Cauda Recipe
This Italian appetizer usually involves raw vegetables dipped into a pungent warm sauce. (Bagna cauda means “hot bath” in Italian.) Shaya substitutes roasted root vegetables for their caramelized sweetness. This recipe calls for carrots, baby turnips, small golden potatoes, and red onions. The array of flavors blend wonderfully and make for a beautiful display of color when plated. The vegetables bake at a high temperature (475 degrees), which helps them develop a wonderful caramelized exterior. Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, these root vegetables are going to be a new go-to side that you’ll want to add to your weekly rotation. When these root vegetables are no longer in season, you can substitute in whatever hearty vegetables are hitting the farmers market. You’ll just have to adjust the cook time accordingly.
