Dinner Last Night

Dinner last night was Root Vegetable Stew with Gruyere Crostinis. This week my CSA box provided me with a handful of plump carrots, and since I've never been a fan of carrots a la carte, I figured I needed to find some vegetables to accompany them. Since using my CSA produce supports my personal goal to eat more seasonally, what better than to add root vegetables - which have just arrived on the veggie scene.

Truth be told, I've never cooked with a rutabega or a turnip before, but they're easy enough (slightly tougher than potatoes). Ultimately the dish turned out great! The garlic and rosemary really added an aromatic flair, and the gruyere toasts were a nice compliment (I could have eaten many more of these...).

I've just recently started loving root veggies. And every time I eat them I wonder why I wasn't eating them all along!

Everything about this meal screams autumn indulgence. I just ate dinner but my stomach just did a little grumble for some of that. I can't wait to make this myself.
