Italian term or phrase:tornite (verdure)
I'm looking for some creative assistance. I have a recipe that instructs the cook to "aggiungere le carote e le patate precedentemente lavate, sbucciate e tornite." The photo shows some shapely, oblong pieces of the vegetables. Any brilliant ideas?
In the picture they look as if they could have been browned quickly, but you'd think they might mention that... they sort of look like elongated egg shapes. I thought the shape was the thing, and Benjamin has the same idea. I just need a 'snappy' word for it. Hmm..... thinking cap: ON.

browned, lightly browned (in butter or oil)for a short time
Explanation: just to get them coated in fat before possibly boiling or stewing or steam cooking so that they keep their colour and flavours, "turned" (not to be used, just to explain) in the fat for a few minutes
