Turnip Rutabaga and Root Veggie Beef Stew #SundaySupper

Turnip Rutabaga Root Vegetable Beef Stew

Root Vegetables. Can You dig it?

I’m super excited to see root vegetables get their own event! I’m rooting for those veggies that grow underground! All time favorites like potatoes, carrots and onions. Lesser known mainstays like turnips, parsnips and rutabagas are represented too!
I spent many years as a Master Gardener through Penn State. One of my greatest joys was watching children “dig” for dinner. I would fill a large sandbox with sand, potatoes, turnips, onions, carrots, radishes and let the kids dig and collect vegetables for our pretend soup. Some kids would be amazed when they realized these veggies they love grew underground!

We would sample everything from carrot juice to potato candy!

If you carrot all, you can’t beet root vegetables for color, taste and texture! 😉

Turnip Rutabaga and Root Veggie Beef Stew blends tender beef with root vegetables creating a savory broth. This stew is rounded out with fresh kale, spinach and a bit of red wine.

    I love love LOVE the turnips and rutabaga in this. They’re such under used vegetables I think. Sometimes the person checking me out at the grocery don’t know what it is. I have to tell them.
