Even in the middle of the winter, Oregon farmers provide. Many people aren’t sure how to use root vegetables although they are quite versatile. Think of how you cook potatoes; you can use any of these roots in much the same way.
One of the simplest things is roasting–scrub the roots clean with a vegetable brush, cube, toss in oil, salt and pepper to taste, and roast uncovered on a baking tray at 375 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes, stirring a few times throughout.
Even simpler, try grating raw beets and tossing with a citrus vinaigrette and some chopped walnuts and blue cheese. Delicious winter salad!
