We have a recipe we think you will love and is heart healthy too! The recipe is for Bagna Cauda. Bagna Cauda means “hot bath” in Italian. It is a warm dip and consists of great olive oil, garlic and anchovies. We recommend serving it with vegetables and bread. You can dip the vegetables in the Bagna Cauda and hold the bread under it to catch any oil that falls onto the bread. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?
2 anchovies in oil
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 tsp capers
1/2 cup Patricia & Paul olive oil
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp fresh parsley – chopped fine
salt and pepper to taste
In a food processor or blender add anchovies, garlic and capers. Puree and then add olive oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Puree again for a few seconds. Scrape out food processor with a spatula and place mixture in a small sauce pan. Heat on low and cook 5 minutes until mixture separates. Chop parsley and add to mixture and add salt and pepper to taste.
Slice and arrange your favorite vegetables on a platter and serve with crusty bread. Enjoy!
