|Root veggies ready to be roasted.|
Quick, name all the varieties of root veggies you have eaten this month. Stuck on carrots and potatoes? Try some new veggies and see how you like them. Go for a variety of colors to add a cheerful punch to your dinner. I also sometimes add some technically-not root veggies like celery and butternut squash, but the majority are the underground winter keepers that are relatively inexpensive and nutritious.
Choose from the common carrots, potatoes, and onions, then add lesser used parsnips, turnips, beets, and sweet potatoes. You may get really exotic and try rutabaga, you know, those weird looking things in the grocery store that you've never actually seen anyone buy. Be adventurous! Give the cashier in the grocery store a challenge! Try some roots!
What veggie do you root for? What is your favorite?
