Veggie-bake with Choron sauce
Choron sauce is a Béarnaise sauce or Hollandaise sauce with a little bit of tomato pure added to make it pink. It is named after the French chef that invented it, and is absolutely delicious. Normally I use it on fried meat, but today I made it for my veggie-bake, and used chili sauce instead of tomato sauce to give it an extra kick.
I used pre-made Béarnaise sauce bought in the store for this recipe. I find homemade Béarnaise sauce to be way to time-consuming to make myself for a quick meal like this.
Some of the vegetables I used in this dish might be hard to find in some parts of the world, so if you want, you can replace the Jerusalem artichokes with small potatoes and the black salsify can be replaced with parsnip or parsley root.
This is what you need
6-8 Jerusalem artichokes
3 Black salsify roots (also called scorzonera hispanica, serpent root or black oyster plant)
3,5 tbsp water
1 can (400 g / 14 oz) artichoke hearts
1 package Béarnaise sauce mix
2 tbsp chili sauce
2 firm tomatoes
This is what you do
Peel artichokes, black roots and onions.
Cut the roots (see photo above) and place them in a micro safe form with the onions. Pour in the water, cover the form and boil on full power for 12-14 minutes.
Drain the artichokes in a colander and rinse a bit to remove brine. Add the artichokes to the roots and onions, cover and continue boiling on full power for 5 more minutes.
Make the Bearnaise sauce according to the directions on the package. Add the chili sauce and pour the sauce over your vegetables. Slice the tomatoes and place as garnish on top. Serve right away.
The peeled black salsify root get very quickly discolored, and need to go in the microwave right away. If not, immediately immerse them in water with a little vinegar or lemon juice until you are ready to start cooking
