Recetas de Yotam Ottolenghi para acompañamientos alternativos de verduras navideñas

T-minus two weeks! Pero no demasiado tarde para sugerir algunos lados nuevos para su mesa navideña., confío? Yo se que digo que todos los años, but if Mariah Carey gets to sing from the same December hymn sheet, I’m going to as well. The vegetable sides are so often where it’s at, después de todo. The colour! The flavour! All the drama and deliciousness! As Mariah says, “All I want for Christmas is you-ooo.”

This dish, in which the earthy, sweet beetroot pairs very well with the salty peanut dressing, is all about the drama in flavour and appearance. If you want to get ahead, roast and marinate the beetroot the day before.

10g chives, cut into 3cm lengths
1 tsp black sesame seeds, tostado

For the peanut dressing
60gramo smooth peanut butter
1 tsp maple syrup
1½ tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp lime juice

Heat the oven to 240C (220Ventilador C)/475F / gas 9. Lay the beetroot on a large sheet of kitchen foil, drizzle over a tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with a half-teaspoon of salt, and wrap tightly, so the beets are completely covered. Transfer to an oven tray and bake for an hour and a half, until a knife goes through the beetroots easily, then remove the foil and leave until cool enough to handle. Once cooled, peel with a small knife.

While the beetroot is roasting, make the marinade. En un tazón grande, mix the vinegar, maple syrup and ginger with a third of a teaspoon of salt and set aside.

Cut each peeled beetroot into six wedges, toss in the marinade and set aside for half an hour.

mientras tanto, make the dressing. Put the peanut butter, maple syrup, soy sauce, lime juice and two tablespoons of water in a small bowl and stir until smooth.

Arrange the beetroot and any remaining marinade on a lipped platter, spoon over half the dressing and the remaining tablespoon of oil, sprinkle with the chives and sesame seeds and serve at room temperature with the rest of the peanut dressing on the side.

The hot and sweet marinade here complements sweet pumpkins very well. The firm delica is a perfect fit, but any other firm-fleshed pumpkin will work here, también. Swap the chipotle for another dried chilli such as ancho or cascabel, if you prefer.

The lime and basil bring lots of freshness and zing to the sprouts, which eagerly soak up the dressing. The dressing improves with time, so make it the day before, Si te gusta.
