Veggie Notes and Recipe links:

Carrots – not your average store bought carrot! These may be smaller but deliciously sweet and bursting with carrot flavor. So yummy, you might just eat all of them raw just give them a scrub. These smaller carrots have thinner skin. Can also be added to soups and roasted veggies.

Komatsuna – Asian green -steamed and seasoned with soy sauce, stir fries, raw, pickled, salads, or soups

Celeriac – aka Celery Root – must be peeled; shredded, sliced thin, diced in soup, boiled and mashed with potato, braised stove top-smashed celeriac recipe, remoulade-recipe below
