Root for Winter Vegetables

Leave a comment

Now that the clocks have turned back, there’s something that envelops me as I travel home in the cool, dark evening – I’m tired, hungry and looking forward to stepping into my warm, well-lit home….a fire dancing in the fireplace, and the aroma of roasted or grilled winter vegetables, all prepared by my husband, Ralf (amazing cook). My cravings for the cool, crisp salads of summer evenings are a distant memory.

One of my favorites is roasted brussels with bacon, walnuts & balsamic vinegar. For those who don’t dig pig, it’s great without the bacon as well. Low in carbs, Brussels sprouts provide a significant amount of many vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin C and vitamin K. They also contain plant phytonutrients that help the body protect against diseases, including  increasing the body’s levels of detoxifying enzymes.

Some FYI on other winter veggies that I adore…..

Sweet potatoes are packed with potassium, and are high in Vitamin A and C ,Turnips are high in Vitamin C ,Kale is high in Vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and calcium Squash is high in Vitamin A and C, as well as potassium

So check out this recipe at a great blog Daily Unadventures in Cooking
And what are your favorite – healthy – winter root veggie recipes – love to hear!
