Who doesn’t like to switch their vegetables up? I know I do! It gets pretty old to eat the same thing…like just eating carrots, or just eating cherry tomatoes, or just eating kale. You’ve got to give your body a bit of everything, you know? Different ingredients provide different minerals and vitamins, so it’s always a great idea to eat new stuff. This weekend, I decided that my family really needed to get “rooted”. Not literally or figuratively, just nutritionally. 😉

I went to the grocery store and got three different types of roots: sweet potatoes, parsnips and rutabagas. My husband is a picky eater and tends to like conventional stuff…you know, “normal” foods. He is a bit conservative when it comes to food and trying new things. My job is to dress things up a bit! Not only make them look delicious, but also give them the right texture and the right flavor. I am all about that and I love it! It’s always such a fun challenge. Try my Root Roast. It’ll provide all of the above…good nutrition, good presentation, good texture and definitely good taste!

    This is my first time cooking with parsnip or rutabaga. Did you peel the parsnip or rutabaga? It doesnt look like you did from looking at the pictures. The recipe looks so yummy. I can’t wait to make it tonight.
