Root Vegetable Recipes

As the temperature drops outside, heat up the oven. Fresh seasonal ingredients like beets, carrots, celery root, parsnips, yams and sweet potatoes will keep you warm all winter long. Soups, breads and ragouts are perfect cold-weather dishes. Serve up a celery root purée (pictured above) instead of mashed potatoes, warm up with a roasted beet soup, or bring along a sweet potato cornbread to a Thanksgiving potluck.
