Get Rooted

root vegetables = exciting flavors + nutrients + convenience

So, what’s a root vegetable? When the underground part of the plant is eaten as a vegetable, it is called a “root vegetable” (even though sometimes it’s really what botanists would call a tuber, bulb or other plant organ). They aren’t always pretty (some are even downright ugly: jicama, anyone?) but they taste mmmm good! Common root veggies include:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Beets
  • Parsnips
  • Carrots
  • Jicama
  • Onions
  • Radishes
  • Rutabagas
  • Turnips
