  • Summary

    Instead of roasting your vegetables, try giving them the slow-cooker treatment. Here, carrots, parsnips, and beets are poached in a spiced oil until silky and flavorful. Serve with pesto over grains or alongside roasted meats. This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Slow Cooker" (Clarkson Potter).

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup salted shelled roasted pistachios
    • 1/2 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1 small clove garlic, smashed and peeled
    • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons finely grated Pecorino Romano
    • 4 small carrots, peeled, ends left intact
    • 4 small parsnips, peeled
    • 2 beets, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
    • 8 cipollini onions
    • 1 bulb fennel, cut into wedges, core intact
    • 2 dried bay leaves
    • 1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
    • 3 dried red chiles
    • 4 to 5 cups extra-virgin olive or canola oil
