Root vegetables are a staple of many diets all over the world. Their interesting textures, hearty flavors, and bright colors make it easy to see why. They are versatile and fun, and almost always a crowd pleaser. Luckily for us, they are nutritious as well as tasty. Since root vegetables grow in the soil, they absorb a lot of nutrients from the ground. This means they are packed with vitamins and minerals. Also, they are wonderful natural sources of complex carbs and fiber. This means they can help keep us full longer.
Another great thing about root vegetables is they can be prepared in many different ways. Whether boiled, roasted, sauteed, or grilled, there are many exciting recipes and cooking methods.
