Cook with Us #26 - Post Your Entry Here

in #cookwithus6 years ago (edited)

Welcome to Season 3 of Cook with Us!

Welcome to Season Three of Cook with Us. We are excited to welcome new people into our community this season, as well as catch up with our much-loved regular contributors. This season will last until early December. We will be on holiday for the rest of the month of December and then Season Four will start in January 2019.

A huge thanks to @curie and @sneaky-ninja's sponsorship which made Season Three possible!

This week’s challenge at CwU is to create a dish using root vegetables. The root vegetable should be the star or main item of your dish. There are so many root vegetables that you will have many options to work with. If you are unfamiliar with root vegetables here is a short list.

  1. Carrots
  2. Potatoes
  3. Onions
  4. Taro
  5. Beets
  6. Daikon
  7. Jicama
  8. Garlic
  9. Wasabi
  10. Sweet Potato
  11. Yucca
  12. Ginger
  13. Turnips
  14. Rutabagas
  15. Cassava
  16. Salsify
  17. Celery Root
  18. Sunchokes

For an even larger list, Click Here for a comprehensive list of root vegetables.

You can make any kind of dish that you want with your root vegetables from sweet to savory. You may also use one root vegetable or as many varieties as you wish.

Don’t forget too that a great entry also includes a personal story about the dish or main ingredient. Background stories about a dish really bring it to life. It helps people to understand the dish from your point of view. When you get to learn about food in this way it becomes much more than just a dish and a list of ingredients.

Good luck this week! We look forward to reading your entries and learning a bit about food from you!

All four main topics/food subjects look GREAT!!
I'm especially waiting for the fourth week- a budget meal!!!

Thanks @goldendawne! We are excited to be starting season three and to get to see some wonderful foods and stories shared in our community.

Thank you @goldendawne! Looking forward to Season 3! Yes, that 4th week will be interesting ... can't wait.

Happy to see everyone back in action! Already drooling at the few entries popping up of course!

Yum, so hearty and the turmeric really adds a beautiful hue to the soup.

You're back, we're back! Woohoo!

I like the whole layout. If one takes a good look, there is a lot more going on there than initially appears. And enough greens to fully complement a stew.

I appreciate the nice feedback! The fennel fronds were pretty mild, so I wanted to make sure to add enough to actually taste them and enjoy the flavor.

How's everybody? I was a little absent with all these changes besides the crisis in my country

I hope to activate and to present my entry for this week I like the topic so I must think of a vegetable dish

Hi @yesslife! Welcome back for season three. I look forward to having you participate in the contest again. I am very sorry to read about the crisis in Venezuela. I hope the situation improves for you.

Sorry about the crisis you're experiencing @yesslife! It's a challenging time but hoping things will get better soon.

Hope to see some entries from you in Season 3!

Here is my entry - Sweet Potato & Butternut Fritters with Salted Caramel Popcorn

Yay, welcome back @lizelle! Season 3, here we come! =D

We are thrilled too! Glad to see you're back @loveself. Hope you enjoyed the break.

Hello everyone,
Please find my entry for the first week of season#3. I've made a Layered Root Vegetables Gratin. I hope you enjoy it.
