Books for Christmas: The Roasted Vegetable

My mom gave us this book over the holidays, and it’s incredible.  We’re part of both the Poughkeepsie Farm Project and the Winter Sun CSA.  This means that right now we’ve got lots of bags of root vegetables and squash.  Beets, Potatoes, Rutabagas, Turnips, Sweet Potatoes, Acorn Squash, Butternut Squash, Hubbard Squash.  Last winter we never quite got into the groove on the winter vegetables, so a lot of them went to waste.

But not this year.  In the 5 days since we’ve had this book Susan’s made 2 recipes: a beet, turnip, squash, an onion roast mixed with goat cheese and pasta; sweet potato wedges.  Both were great.  As we flipped through this book nearly every page has something that you are just dying to try.  My mom didn’t let the book out of her sight in Vermont until she managed to copy out a few recipes for herself.

So, if you are trying to figure out how to use vegetables in some new and tasty ways, especially ones you don’t normally cook, I can highly suggest this book.
