A whole new Root Veggies website is coming soon! Until then, experiment in the kitchen and try some of my recipes below.
This is my favorite weekend-brunch-at-home meal to make! You can use so many different ingredients. which if you couldn’t tell is my favorite aspect of any recipe. When I plan to eat this right away, I fry an egg sunny-side-up to place on top, break the yolk (so satisfying) and mix it all together. Sometimes, though, I make a large amount… Continue reading Sweet Potato Hash
Coconut is everywhere in Thailand. There’s coconut milk in almost every dessert, coconut ice cream, coconut in the alcohol and most of all, fresh coconut water that’s served in the coconut itself after you watched an incredibly agile Thai man shimmy up a tree and chop it down with a machete. Even after the show, I thought my… Continue reading Coconut Shrimp with Sesame Ginger Green Beans
I was raised on meatballs. As an Italian, every Sunday my whole family would pile into my grandpa’s house and sit around a large table for a dinner that was always the same… macaroni and meatballs. My grandpa would wake up very early Sunday morning, go to church and come home to start cooking. He… Continue reading Sesame-Ginger Turkey Meatballs
Sometimes you just need something quick, easy, good, natural, whole and good. That’s where Chicken Fajita’s come in! I love me some Asian food, but I also like to cook Mexican… especially when the weather warms up. Call me crazy but there’s just something about a shrimp taco with mango salsa that makes me wish I was… Continue reading Chicken Fajitas!

I’ve had it pinned for a while now and since I just bought spaghetti squash AND cabbage, I knew that this would be the perfect time to try it out! I glanced at the recipe to get… Continue reading Spaghetti Squash “wait, why am I calling this chow mein?!!” Chow Mein
Spaghetti Squash is totally the coolest root veggie. I first discovered this yellow-orange-hued beauty just a few years ago. I mainly used it as a substitute for pasta, covered in sauce and sometimes topped with sausage or meatballs, maybe even pesto. I’ve recently ventured in different ways to use it and I am LOVING all that… Continue reading Spaghetti Squash Breakfast Bites
It’s been some time since an actual food post, but that’s because it’s been a while since I’ve actually COOKED. At least cooked anything that I deem “blog worthy”… which means not scrambled eggs and sausage and peppers. I’ve been pretty busy the past few weeks applying for jobs, interviewing for jobs and running around… Continue reading “I need to eat a skinny person”
A really great (but difficult) thing about doing things like going away to college and then spending a year traveling and teaching English abroad is all of the friends you make that live throughout the world! Some of my friends are scattered across the country, some of them still in Thailand and some of them… Continue reading My tourist weekend in NYC
If you read my bucket list post, you saw that “make my own sushi” was high up on my list. Sushi is one of my favorite foods and trying to make my own is someting I’ve been dying to try. So with my birthday being just around the corner and a sushi-making kit newly acquired I… Continue reading Making sushi!
