Fall in Love with Root Veggies
'Tis the season for crunchy leaves, crisp air, and roasted root veggies
We have a not-so-secret crush on root veggies – after all, our name is Love Beets. We adore those ruby orbs, not only for their superfood status, but for their culinary versatility and all around yumminess. We’ve rounded up our favorite root veggie recipes to celebrate this wonderful time of year!
Classic mashed potatoes will always have a place in our comfort-food-loving hearts, but we’ve come to prefer ours with a wider array of nutrients and a vibrant punch of color. Beet & Sweet Potato Mash with Thyme is our newfound gravy-vessel obsession, and it’s soon to be yours, too!
While the jury’s out on whether fennel qualifies as a root vegetable, all decisions are unanimous when its comes to this Fennel, Beet, and Squash Salad. It’s simply stunning, plates beautifully, and is accented by a warming Cinnamon-Maple Balsamic Dressing that will rock your world.
Free from the weigh-you-down ingredients found in classic stuffing, this Stuffed Acorn Squash is a balance of earthy flavors and homecooked nostalgia.
Back to basics is sometimes best. Roasted Beets & Carrots, Three Ways highlights the natural sweetness of our favorite “dirt candy,” with novel preparations such as Garlic & Caraway.
