Fall and winter is the time for indulging in some sweet and savory root vegetables. They are high in fiber, rich in vitamins, and can keep you feeling satisfied for a long time after you’ve eaten them. Your menu doesn’t have to be limited to baked acorn squash or sweet potato fries, though they are delicious as well. You can expand your creativity with other root veggies and some delicious seasonings.
Parsnips are mild and often overlooked because many don’t know how to cook them. The benefit of using this sweet little veggie is that it responds well to the seasonings you dress it up with. The parsnip soup can be flavored with onion, garlic, celery, jalapeno, and ginger. It will warm you from the inside out.
Sweet Potato and Carrot Mash
You’ll love these two vegetables as they are combined with butter, cream, brown sugar, and cinnamon. This combination is delicious on its own but adding the carrots turns up the complexity of flavors to new levels. You’ll be going back for seconds.
Sauteed Root Vegetables with Soy Sauce and Honey
You’ll be sauteing chopped carrots, beets, and sweet potatoes in a delicious combination of soy sauce, honey, ginger, lemon juice, and sesame oil. The flavors will slowly marry into a favorite of the whole family.
