Baking or roasting meat, fish or vegetables nestled in a bed of salt is a centuries-old technique that is enjoying its renaissance.
Here, a bed of salt helps evenly distribute heat, and trying out the technique with baby winter vegetables will require less of a salt investment than a whole fish or bird.
Baby carrots, trimmed and scrubbed
Baby beets, trimmed and scrubbed
Baby parsnips, trimmed and scrubbed
A few sprigs of fresh rosemary
Whole garlic (optional)
Olive oil (optional: if roasting garlic)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Lay about an inch of coarse salt in a shallow baking pan and nestle in prepared vegetables in a single layer. Tuck a few sprigs of fresh rosemary between the veggies and cover completely with another inch or so of salt.
If you like, slice the top off a head or two of garlic and drizzle the exposed cloves with olive oil. Nestle on top of the salt without covering over, keeping the cut side up.
Bake for 1 hour, or until vegetables are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Rub the skins off the beets while still warm. If you like, serve with the roasted garlic, squeezed out of its skins. Serves as many as you like.
