19-19: Root Vegetables I

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!

4-27: Mushroom-Parsnip Au Gratin

Parsnips

2-19: Country Bean Salad

Beets
