This Month's Tips - BACK TO YOUR ROOTS

Root vegetables are knotty, bumpy and sometimes hairy - needless to say, they may not win any beauty contests.  These earthy vegetables are filled with flavours, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

This month we will take a look at parsnips, turnips, turabagas, celeriac and parsley root. These root vegetabls are good keepers and will store for weeks in the fridge.

 

Parsley Root

Parsley root comes from the same family as the herb parsley.  Parsley roots flavour lies in between a carrot and celery.   Historically this has been used as a medicinal plant and acts as a diuretic and strong antioxidant.

 

Turnips

The smaller the turnips, the sweeter they taste.  Turnip greens are edible as well and will appeal to people who love bitter greens.  Turnips are high in antioxidants and potassium and the greens attached offer calcium, beta carotene and vitamins C and K.

 

Rutabagas

Rutabagas are believed to be a hybrid between a turnip and wild cabbage.  Rutabagas have a slightly bitter flavour and are milder than turnips.  They are rich in potassium, manganese and vitamin C.

         

Parsnips

Parsnips are a close relative of the carrot.  They have a scent similar to celery with a nutty earthy flavour.  Parsnips have a high glycemic index, they are also high in vitamin C, manganese and potassium.

 

Celeriac

Celeriac is also known as celery root. This is a cousin of parsnips, carrots, anise and celery.  It's white flesh tastes like a subtle cross between celery and parsley.  It's rich in calcium, potassium and vitamin C.
