Name Root

Another ugly vegetable, Name root. This is found by the potatoes, in the ugly things section that you would typically pass by to get to the potatoes. Big raves over this recipe by guinea pigs, hope you enjoy.

Wash and peel the root with a vegetable peeler. The skin is kind of bark-ish, so you will have to clean out your peeler often and one thing I ran into was that there were a lot of bad spots on the surface and around the root end where it looks like it was cut from something. Not sure if I just picked a bad one or if this is common, I just cut away any parts that didn’t look good and cut it into cube chunks. Place in a bowl and add onions and seasoning cubes. Drizzle with olive oil and then toss or stir till seasonings are coating all pieces fairly well.  Place on a spray oiled a cookie sheet and bake on 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

The Name should be tender with a fork and golden brown baked like a potato.

Serve and enjoy.
