Success with Veg!
I really like roasted roots, but I wasn't about to turn the oven on and roast something for 40 minutes when it's 90 degrees outside. The parsnip, turnip and rutabega, I diced and steamed in the microwave until they were tender (about 10 min). Then I threw them in a pan with a little olive oil & garlic to brown them up. A pinch of salt, pepper and rosemary for flavor.
My taste testers decided at that point that it was salsa. So we added some salt and lime and ate a good bit of it with tortilla chips.
I'm still picking away at the cool fruit that I bought. And the radichio and purple kale are still languishing in the fridge. The challenge participants have until noon to send me thier lists.
