  • Serves 4
  • 4 small carrots
  • 2 small white beets
  • 1 fennel
  • 2 white onions
  • 200g pumpkin
  • 2 small heads of late red chicory
  • some radishes
  • 100g pomegranate arils
  • For the Parmigiano Reggiano sauce:
  • 200 ml milk cream
  • 200 ml vegetable stock
  • 150 g Parmigiano Reggiano, grated
  • 1 tablespoon of shallot
  • 1 spring of rosemary
  • 40g sunflower-seed oil
  • salt and pepper

Clean all the vegetables, cut the beets in half, peel and cut the carrots into slanted slices of 0.5cm thickness.

Cut the fennel and pumpkin into 4 slices and the onion into thick rounds.

Arrange the vegetables on a slightly oiled non-stick baking tin leaving out only the red chicory. Sprinkle with some salt, thyme, a dribble of oil and half glass of water.

Cover the tin and put it in the oven at 180°C for 25’, adding some spoonfuls of water if necessary.  Cut the red chicory in half and dress it with oil and salt. Put it on top of the other vegetables and continue cooking for another 10’ at 180°C without covering it.

Vegetables should be soft and nicely golden.

Bring cream, stock, shallot and thyme to a boil.  Allow to reduce by 1/3.

Add Parmigiano Reggiano and mix it to fold in well.  Blend for some seconds with a hand-held blender, adjust salt, pepper and thickness to taste.

Serve the vegetables with the sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate arils.
