Roots: The Definitive Compendium with more than 225 Recipes by Diane Morgan

From the author of more than 10 cookbooks comes this comprehensive guide and collection of recipes using root vegetables. Discover the fascinating history and lore of 29 major roots, their nutritional content, how to buy and store them, and much more, from the familiar (beets, carrots, potatoes) to the unfamiliar (jicama, salsify, malanga) to the practically unheard of (cassava, galangal, crosnes). The best part? More than 225 recipes—salads, soups, side dishes, main courses, drinks, and desserts—that bring out the earthy goodness of each and every one of these intriguing vegetables. From Andean tubers and burdock to yams and yuca, this essential culinary encyclopedia lets dedicated home cooks achieve a new level of taste and sophistication in their everyday cooking.

I don't think that I have ever seen a cookbook like this before. Foods I've never heard of. Answers to questions like, "What in the world can you make with that?" Unusual combinations that I actually want to try. I feel like I am finding the lost city of gold as I read about foods that were eaten by the ancients. I love this cookbook. Highly recommended.

My son loves to cook, especially vegetables, and he loved the book.

I get to the latino or asian market and wonder what I can do with these things. Now I make weird smoothies (not in the book,I figured it out after trying some) that are good for you.
