Winter Vegetables with Bagna Cauda


Anchovies are full of omega 3 fatty acids, exactly the type of food that makes your body feel and perform better. Combined with the butter, olive oil and garlic, anchovies also dress up a plate of raw vegetables making them feel decadent and healthy. To make this vegetarian either remove the anchovies entirely or substitute 1 tablespoon of miso paste to add the rich bottom flavors.
