  • 12 ounce baguette
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 6 cloves garlic smashed and peeled
  • 4 small small beets trimmed and quartered, reserve the beet greens
  • 2 medium turnips peeled and chopped into large pieces
  • 2 parsnips peeled and chopped into large pieces
  • 1 medium sweet potato scrubbed and chopped into large pieces
  • 1 medium red onion peeled and chopped into large pieces
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme leaves removed from stem
  • 1/4 cup water
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Slice the baguette on and angle. Arrange slices on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with STAR Vegetable Arbequina Olive Oil and bake in a preheated 400° oven until toasted. Remove and set off to the side.
  • In a large cast iron skillet heat the two tablespoons of STAR Arbequina Olive Oil over medium-high heat. Once hot throw in the smashed garlic, chopped beets, turnips, parsnips, sweet potato and onion. Stir to coat in oil and then leave alone for a few minutes so a good crust forms, about 6-7 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium, stir and then add in the thyme leaves and immediately pour in the 1/4 cup of water, cover and let steam for 5-7 more minutes. Remove the lid and add in the chopped beet greens, stir and cover for 2 minutes. Remove the lid, season with a generous pinch of kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper, stir and continue to cook until the vegetables are fork tender and most of the water has evaporated.
  • Serve on toasted slices of baguette and drizzle with a little bit more olive oil over top.
