Albino Vegetables

I've been "branching out" with my culinary tastes these days. Not on purpose, I blame Winnie the Pooh 100% for this one. I mean, how am I supposed to tell my kids what a rutabaga is if I don't know?

For the record, parsnips = albino carrots but not as crunchy.

And a rutabaga? Yeah, that's just a big old radish.

So the next time you're thinking you're going to make this really awesome roasted vegetable side dish? Don't add the rutabaga, because it ruins the entire thing. Those radish-y flavors leak onto everything.

And they're not even a pretty color.

You're welcome.

I wondered how that had gone over. :) Now I know. I'll pass on the parsnips too. THanks.

Good to know! I don't generally branch out, but I'm getting there!
