Rootie Patootie!

Root Veg Collage 1

This week we're in the kitchen doing the  Rootie Patootie with Nigel Salter.

No matter which season you're enjoying right now, you're sure to be able to find a root vegetable to grace your plate ... radish, daikon, carrots, parsnip, beetroot, celeriac, turnips, yams, salsify, sweet potato, everybody's favourite root vegetable - the humble potato, and of course many more that I haven't mentioned.

And if you're wondering what to do with those root vegetables, there's no doubt that Nigel is the man to help you out.  There is an abundance of vegetable dishes, including how to make good use of leftovers, in every one of his books, and many more in his weekly online column for The Guardian.

Maybe you'll go sweet or maybe you'll go savoury.  Maybe your dish will use up some of those leftovers kicking around in the fridge.  Maybe you'll come up with a side dish to play a role in a larger feast, or maybe you'll try a main course dish that plays a starring role.  Whichever direction you're headed in,  choose an Nigel Slater recipe, dig into those Root Vegetables, and post your dish by Sunday 4 May.

Don't forget to link your dish, as well as a thumbnail image, below.  Please remember to leave a comment after linking so that we don't miss out on your dish.

I went with the humble potato--adding baby arugula to Nigel's yummy Potato, Leek & Parmesan Soup. ;-)

Not very imaginative this week. More potatoes here too.

This week I'm all about cake. Quite possibly the most moist, dense and fudgy chocolate cake you've ever eaten - and the secret ingredient? ... beetroot!
