Roasted Root Vegetables

Root vegetables are the answer to sparse variety at the market in early spring. And these Roasted Root Vegetables come together easily, cook without supervision, and taste great!

We went to our local farmer's market this last Saturday, and it was lovely to see our little town opening up again after a snowy springtime! We are fortunate, locally we are awash in farmer's markets! Currently, there are greens of all kinds to enjoy, with the other crops being a few weeks away. But there is also a bright side, this is the perfect time to enjoy all the root vegetables still available. 

Root vegetables are often overlooked, and what a pity because they are truly delicious. Plus this recipe couldn't be easier! Peel some veggies, drizzle with a bit of oil, sprinkle with some flavor, and let the slow cooker do the work! Cooked together slowly, they mellow and sweeten. Even hardcore root vegetable hater, like this dish! I do hope you give them a try, there is lots of nutrition in these roots!

    1. You're welcome! Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

  2. This sounds wonderful and we'll have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

  3. My favorite way to eat veggies!

    1. Plus with the easy prep, no excuses for not eating veggies!

  4. Hmm....rutabaga. Don't know that vegie. We made a root vegetable cottage pie last week which I am thinking I will post about shortly.

    1. I look forward to your Cottage Pie recipe! We love rutabagas they can be strong, but my grandmother cooked them when I was a child, so of course I ate them!

  5. We love roast vegetables and make them several times a week but I've never thought of using the slow cooker for them! That would free the cooker up for me too! One question, do they go crispy at all or would I need to finish them off in the oven if I wanted crispness? Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday.

    1. They do no crisp in the slow cooker, but they do caramelize.

  6. I tried roasting root vegetables in the slow cooker one time but I overcooked them and they were mushy. Maybe I'll try again now that it's getting too warm for the oven to be on as long!

    1. You can try putting a chop stick in under the lid to allow more evaporation, that might help with the "mushy" problem. Slow cooking (from my view point) isn't always straight forward, I have had my share of failures...Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

    2. I've never heard that tip before! Thanks!
