We’ve entered my favorite time of year. Halloween is over. Let the Thanksgiving baking, roasting, cooking begin! Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some great recipes to help get you in the mood for the holiday season.
I confess I’m boring. I really love roasted veggies. So much, in fact, that I hardly do anything else with them. And while doing the same thing all of the time can get boring, I never become tired of roasted veggies. They are like candy.
Roasting helps bring out the natural sugars in veggies. They caramelize and mellow, and become absolutely irresistible. I’m lucky that my CSA is still going strong. The past few weeks I’ve been receiving the tastiest potatoes, carrots and turnips. So that is what you’ll see in the pictures. Other root veggies are just fine too. I’m finding myself dreaming of parsnips, celeriac (or celery root) and rutabagas, which are essentially yellow turnips, and Jerusalem artichokes.
