Root Veggie Salad for Now, Root Veggie Hash for Later
"During the chilly months, I like to stock up on root vegetables. They store well in cool, dark areas to enjoy all season long. You don’t have to use the exact ingredients in this recipe to produce a great dish. Feel free to substitute with parsnips, radishes, sweet potatoes or turnips.
For me, breakfast is a last-minute, time-crunch chore. I’m one of those people who likes to sleep in with enough time to rush through my morning to make it to work on-time. Which means, I’m also one of those people who enjoys eating dinner leftovers for breakfast. Bonus points if I can add eggs to it and call it a decent breakfast. Here’s one of my go-to dishes."

Instructions | Root Veggie Salad for Now:
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a large baking dish, combine potatoes, beets, carrots, red onions, and garlic. Drizzle a generous amount of grapeseed or canola oil on the root vegetables, enough to coat all the vegetables. Season with a generous amount of salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
- While the vegetables are roasting, make the vinaigrette. In a large jar or mixing bowl, combine ½ cup oil, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, parsley, salt and pepper. Shake or whisk to combine.
- After roasting for 25 minutes, stir the vegetables. If you would like to add roasted peppers, place the bell peppers on top of the root vegetables. Bake for another 25 minutes.
- Remove the baking dish from the oven. Remove the peppers on top of the dish and rest them on your cutting board. Once cooled, remove the stem and the seeds of the pepper. Chop the pepper into similar size pieces as the other vegetables. Mix peppers and other vegetables together. Top with vinaigrette and serve!
