Let it sit at room temperature while you prep the other ingredients—the flavors will really bloom. Tender caramelized vegetables provide the perfect contrast for such a creamy topping. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

What you'll need: 1 lb carrots 8–10 oz orange bell pepper 1 medium red onion ½ oz fresh basil 1 oz roasted unsalted almonds 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar 4 oz burrata olive oil coarse salt freshly ground black pepper

Equipment: rimmed baking sheet

Recipe steps:

  1. Prep vegetables Preheat broiler with rack in highest position. Peel carrots and cut into 3-inch lengths, halving any really thick pieces. Cut sides away from bell pepper and cut each side in half on a diagonal. Peel and slice onion into ½-inch thick rounds, separating some of the rings (it’s OK if some stick together).

  2. Broil carrots Toss carrots with 1 tablespoon oil on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Broil until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes.

  3. Broil pepper and onion Meanwhile, toss bell pepper and onion with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Add pepper and onion to baking sheet and return to broiler until vegetables are charred in spots, about 3 minutes more.

  4. Finish vegetables Flip all vegetables over and continue to broil until tender and lightly charred, about 5 minutes more.

  5. Make dressing Meanwhile, pick basil leaves from stems and finely chop. Roughly chop almonds and combine with basil in a small bowl. Add vinegar and 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt and pepper; stir to combine.

  6. Serve Transfer vegetables to a platter. Pull burrata apart and place on top. Drizzle with basil-almond dressing and season with pepper. Enjoy!
