Savor the rich flavors of root vegetables thanks to “Roots”, a recipe-packed cookbook from Portland-based author Diane Morgan. Far too often, our only exposure to these dug-from-the-dirt vegetables is after they’ve been prepared and masked with butter, sauces or heavy creams. Morgan makes it easy—teaching home cooks how to bring out the earthy goodness of 29 major roots, and understand their history, nutritional content, and more.

Her comprehensive guide delves deep into the familiar (beets, carrots, potatoes) to the unfamiliar (jicama, salsify, malanga) to the practically unheard of (cassava, galangal, crosnes), helping home cooks make sense of—and appreciate—the range of flavors each root naturally provides. With over 225 recipes for salads, soups, side dishes, main courses, desserts, and more, this cookbook is a resource all vegetable-lovers should have.
