I love going to the market, grabbing whatever looks good and then coming home and trying to make it all work together, especially during this time of year.. Lately, I’ve been really inspired by all things Fall, the heartiness of the root vegetables and the rustic flavors that pair so nicely with them: ginger, sage, maple and cinnamon.
Adding roasted root vegetables to your salads is a simple way to make it more filling, more nourishing and tastier. Don’t believe me? Give it a try!
