Tasty Root Vegetables

List Criteria: Vote up for the tastiest, down for the bland root vegetables

A list of root vegetables and tubers. These are edible plants in which the leaves, stems, flowers, or roots are edible. This list does not include edible plants that are funguses, seeds, or treated as fruits. Something to consider: the word vegetable is based on culinary tradition. It is not scientific. Edible plants traditionally used to make savory dishes are typically considered to be types of vegetables. That said, some vegetables are occasionally used to also make sweet dishes, such as carrots, rhubarb, and even avocados. While some of the vegetables on this list may be eaten raw, more often than not, vegetables are cooked. So whether you're a vegetarian, vegan, or just a well rounded carnivore, enjoy this list of root vegetables and tubers. If you want to add your favorite root veggies to this list, just type in the name and click add. While you're at it, don't forget to vote for your favorites!
