When I first tasted Bagna Cauda, I swooned. A heavenly, warm garlicky sauce and lots of fresh vegetables to dip into it. Boy do the Italians know how to live! It is traditional to dip little 'mops' of crusty bread to finish up the sauce if there's any left after the vegetables are finished.
- 7 garlic cloves, mashed to a paste
- 7 garlic cloves, sliced thin
- 1 1⁄3 cups olive oil
- 1 (5 ounce) can anchovy fillets, drained and chopped
- 1⁄3 cup butter, cut into pieces
- 2 tablespoons milk
- sliced bell pepper
- carrot, sticks
- zucchini, sticks
- cherry tomatoes
- broccoli floret
- celery, sticks
- 1 small button mushroom
- green beans
- snow peas
- In a small saucepan, cook garlic paste and sliced garlic in olive oil with anchovies over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes (do not let garlic brown).
- Stir butter and milk into mixture and transfer to a fondue pot.
- Serve warm with accompanying vegetables.
MMM! This was yummy. I have never had this combination before but I loved it! I ate it with the veggies but drizzled a little on a sandwich too (couldn't help myself.) Thanks Evelyn.
I love Bagna Cauda! I have to confess that I used heavy cream instead of milk. Thanks Evelyn. =)
While this didn't taste horrible, it did SMELL horrible and made the whole house stink. NOT company food if you're inviting people over!
