5 Underrated vegetables

Leeks
Beets: real ones, oven roasted {Cut the leafy end off of the beets, but don't peel them. Put the beets on a large sheet of aluminum foil. Sprinkle with a tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Wrap the foil up tightly around the beets. Roast at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Peel}
Parsnips
Sweet potatoes
Butternut squash

Did you know they use beet juice as an additive with salt brine for icey roads now???
Could that really be good for your stomach?? :)
