Root Vegetables

'Tis the season for root vegetables. As their name implies, root veges are the edible root of a plant. Pictured here is a rutabaga. Other popular root veges are turnip roots, beets, red radishes, daikon radishes, and the more popular carrots and potatoes. They keep well after harvest when stored in a cool, dry place.

Try mixing and pan roasting a variety of roots. Simply peel and dice, add salt and pepper, and toss in olive oil. Add to roasting pan and cook at 400 degrees for about 45-50 minutes, or until tender. Great side dish with greens and main course.
