These roasted rosemary root vegetables are perfect for anything from a weeknight dinner to your holiday table!
Root vegetables have never been a mainstay in my diet. Even as a child, I don’t remember ever seeing them at the dinner table.
It’s only now that I’m older and experimenting with all these “crazy and exciting” ingredients with odd names like “rutabaga” (I mean really, who named that one???) and “turnips” that I’m realizing how much I missed out on!
Roasting root vegetables brings out an amazing sweetness in them that you just can’t get any other way. Add a few herbs and spices to that and you’ve got one very nutrient and flavor packed dish!
In fact, I’d go so far as to say that, had my mom or grandma served me these as a child, I would have eaten far more veggies than I did! Try these on yourself first, and then have the kids sample it. They might surprise you!
