another veggie tale
this week's veggie box included two of my least favorite vegetables, leeks and rutabaga. it's not that i don't like the taste, but there's not much you can make with them. sure, you can put leeks on a salad or in a pasta sauce... and that's it. and rutabaga? you can puree them. or broil them. or saute them. but what goes well with rutabaga? not leeks. there's a huge lack of recipes out there for the root vegetable. but they're sort of like turnips, vegetables that have been forgotten by today's tomato/carrot/other veggie peoples. they also have a slightly bitter taste, and also just look... different. but i must say, leeks and rutagaba kick brussel sprouts ass!
