Roasted Vegetable Fries with Cashew Herb Dip

Paired With: Our Daily Wines Red Blend

If you’re looking for the appeal of a deep-fried appetizer without any frying at all, these veggie fries might become your new favorite. Panko gives the fries a great crunch, while the cool, creamy, cashew-based dip adds a fresh, bright note. Our Daily Wines Red Blend pairs well with its mellow acidity to contrast with the dip’s creaminess.

Roasted Cauliflower with Brown Butter Sage Vinaigrette

Paired With: Our Daily Wines Cabernet Sauvignon

This sweet-and-savory dish can be prepared up to three days in advance and simply reheated just before serving before tossing the florets with the vinaigrette, cranberries and pine nuts. It’s a fantastic prepare-ahead side dish for hearty roasts and even grilled proteins. (Tip: the cauliflower florets can be par-roasted in advance to save time. The vinaigrette can also be prepped a day or two in advance.) Our Daily Wines Cabernet Sauvignon matches up well with its medium body and rich, aromatic appeal.

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Sunchokes, Pecorino & Olives

"Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Sunchokes

Paired With: Our Daily Wines 1.5L Red Blend Bag in Box

Roasting thin slices of Brussels sprouts makes them deliciously caramelized, while Jerusalem artichokes and green olives add buttery flavor to this unique dish, which works well as a side dish or a lighter main component with other sides. The sprouts can be cut up to 4 days in advance, but the cooked dish is best right out of the oven. Our Daily Wines 1.5L Red Blend Bag in Box balances lighter, fruit-forward flavors with the richness of the pecorino and fatty olives as well as the roasted Brussels sprouts.
