It’s a beautiful, clear, crisp fall day – one of those days that smell of the earth and soil. If you are eating seasonally this is the time for all those wonderful root vegetables!
This past Rosh Hashonna – the Jewish celebration of the new year – my niece made a delicious sweet vegetable dish – this Sweetened Shoestring Root Vegetables dish!
The holiday emphasizes having a sweet new year and what better way to celebrate, than to make a seasonal root vegetable dish sweetened with traditional, natural sweeteners like raisins and dates.
While I try to add as little sweetener as possible, this dish is awesome for a holiday. It sure beats sweet potatoes with conventional marshmallows!
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I would share it with you!
Variations: Use other root vegetables such as Daikon or celeriac.
Tip: Use a large chef’s knife to slice the vegetables. You could try to use a mandolin as well.
