The Instacart guide to root vegetables

About root vegetables

Make a point of embracing more root vegetables in your daily diet. Some of the less popular ones may have thick, unattractive skins and have a reputation for tasting bitter and unpleasant, but you may find them delicious. With more than two dozen different types of root vegetables available, from carrots to kohlrabi, you're bound to find some new ones that will work with your palate and recipes. 

Here are some root vegetables:
  • Beets.
  • Carrots.
  • Fennel.
  • Garlic.
  • Ginger.
  • Kohlrabi.
  • Onions.
  • Parsnips.
  • Potatoes.
  • Radishes.
  • Rutabagas.
  • Sweet potatoes.
  • Turmeric.
  • Turnips.
  • Yuca root.
Technically, these root vegetables are not all roots, as some form bulbous growths that store nutrients to feed the vegetable during cooler months. For instance, onions and fennel are considered bulbs, taproots include carrots and beets, and rhizomes include ginger and turmeric.

FAQs About Root Vegetables

Although the best way to store root vegetables depends on the specific type you've purchased, most rely on a cool dark place to keep. A root cellar or any area of your home that stays below 60 degrees Fahrenheit is a perfect location, but make sure the temperature stays consistent. You can enjoy your root vegetables for longer if you store them this way.

You can also store them in the refrigerator. Keep the vegetables in a plastic bag, and place them in the crisper. Don't put them in the refrigerator without covering them, as this can cause the vegetables to soften and go bad quickly. Depending on the vegetable, they can last for anywhere from several days to several weeks.

Root vegetables are some of the healthiest and heartiest foods you'll find because they grow underground and absorb nutrients directly from the soil. Although they all have their own specific set of health benefits, many share the same characteristics. They all tend to have vitamins A, B, and C, as well as iron. They're also filled with carbohydrates and fiber, both of which help you stay full, regulate your blood sugar, and help your digestive system. As a result, these low-calorie root vegetables are an ideal food if you're hoping to stay healthy or lose some weight.
