We eat a lot of root vegetables this time of year: parsnips, yams, beets, turnips… Usually I roast them with a bit of honey and rosemary, but for something a bit different try this recipe for potatoes and sweet potatoes cooked with Indian spices in the crockpot.
Because of the variation of heat in the slow cooker and the lack of stirring, you will end up with a nice medley of textures and a side dish that is ready when you are. If you have it, add some fresh cilantro or scallion at the end for brightness.
