I haven’t done a Cooking School entry in forever, so here’s 19-19: Root Vegetables I for your reading pleasure. You can expect 19-20: Root Vegetables II sometime in the near-to-distant future.
Wikipedia has a pretty extensive list of root vegetables, so if Simply Delicious doesn’t discuss what you’re looking for, they’ve got you covered. It’s a good time for root vegetables, so think about how you can incorporate some into your mealtime rotation if you’re interested.
This one covers carrots, parsnips, and beets. 19-20: Root Vegetables II covers radishes, celery root, turnips, rutabagas, horseradish, and Jerusalem artichoke. I’ll link some recipes for this one below, and you can hop over to the other for those ones. Enjoy!
Did your parents ever tell you eating carrots would make you be able to see in the dark? Mine did, and it never worked no matter how many carrots I ate. Despite their lack of night-vision-granting capabilities, they’re still good for you, and there’s a bunch of recipes here that use carrots. I’ve selected a few for you below:
- 8-27: Classic Beef Stew
- 3-13: Velvety Carrot Soup
- 4-34: Italian Roasted Vegetables
- 11-14: Tempura
- 13-14: Wok-Fried Veggies with Pasta
Think of a carrot crossed with a potato crossed with parsley, and you’ve got a parsnip. Here’s a few parsnip recipes for you to experiment with:
- 12-33: Individual Beef Lasagna
- 9-39: Zesty Meat Casserole
- 4-27: Mushroom-Parsnip Au Gratin
- 7-1: Pork Tenderloin with Mushrooms
I’m not a huge fan of beets (or “beetroot”, for those of you outside North America), and they were always a pass for me at the salad bar (back when we were allowed to have salad bars). But I DO like “The Beets“.
- 2-19: Country Bean Salad
- 2-22: Salad Bar with Warm Dressing
- 9-1: Spicy Beef Patties
- 2-20: Potato and Sausage Salad
- 17-35: Healthy Bread with Vegetables
