Grilled Root Vegetables with Charred Scallion Aioli
No need to heat up the oven to roast these vegetables when you can do It outdoors on the grill. Along with carrots, this recipe uses Hakurei turnips, sometimes referred to as salad turnips, due to their crisp, delicious raw flavor. Unlike other turnip varieties, Hakurei do not need to be cooked. They have an even-textured density and the flavor pairs well with a variety of different food items. They can be eaten raw, pickled, or cooked to enhance their natural sweetness. Trim the carrots and turnips and toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then place the whole turnips and carrots directly on the grates of a hot grill for up to 13 minutes. While vegetables are grilling, prepare the aioli using scallions, garlic cloves, egg yoks, lemon zest, and other ingredients. Use this flavorful condiment anywhere you would normally use mayonnaise, such as grilled burgers or sandwiches.
