Autumn brings joy to the homemaker with a kitchen garden who loves creating recipes of fruits and vegetables. Seasonal root vegetables such as carrots, onions, sweet potatoes, turnips, garlic, and ginger make savory stews. They are flavored with natural juices and seasoned with herbs and spices, so little or no salt is needed.
My daughter recently made a vegetable soup with root vegetables and added the small potatoes sometimes called fingerlings. They are purple, red, and white. They make great leftovers. Second-hand, the roots turned into a new Parmesan-Cheddar veggie medley served over brown rice. Yummmyyyy!
There are people who don’t eat vegetables, much less the root kind. If that is you, take a look at this list of tasty varieties. You might change your mind.
- Chicken & Root Vegetable Pasties – The first time I ate a pasty was in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I thought it was a dessert, but it was a pot pie. That area is known for the delicacy. Pasties my family and I ate during our visits to the state mostly consisted of meat and potatoes.
- Vegetable Spiral Tart – The photo of this recipe looks beautiful and very good that I am eager to try it. Plus, the crust looks flaky which makes me even more certain that this is an excellent recipe.
- Beat, Parsnip, Sweet Potato, and Squash Chips – A recipe that looks totally yummy! Like chips? Try this as a substitute for chips with high calories and fat.
- Roasted Fall Vegetable & Ricotta Pizza – I love pizza though I don’t allow myself to indulge in it often, but this recipe quickly got my attention.
- Roasted Root Vegetables with Eggs – You’ll see on my blog that I like eggs. Naturally, the root veggies with eggs I am going to try.
- Roasted Root Salad – A refreshing way to eat vegetables!
