For one thing, they pack a major nutritional punch on a budget - which is a major bonus in these tough economic times. Not to mention, they have a super-long shelf life compared to other produce - sometimes up to three weeks in the fridge!

Root veggies are a great way to to get your daily dose of fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. We at NIM love root veggies, too and you can find a wide variety of them in our delicious recipes.
