Goodshouse – Grünes Design @Heidelberg

A while ago, around beginning of this year, we saw this Green Shop in the old town of Heidelberg. Is a bit hidden, but we went inside because the plate hanging on the gate said “Grünes Design” (german for Green Design). What a surprise, we don’t know how or why we had never seen this shop before and since when was there! But is really cool (and surprisingly big in size). It has upcycled, bio, fair-trade and vegan products: from chocolate to furniture. Everything for the home, office, personal care and education/entertainment.

Recipe: Oven-Baked Veggie Roots

This was the first time I tried parsnip, back in México I didn’t eat it (neither the celery root or parsley root). I don’t even remember seeing them at the grocery store! But here in Germany is quite common (or at least, I have noticed) to prepare these root vegetables during late winter. Today I tried them myself and I have to admit, they are delicious! They are easy to make, yes, it takes some time to wash peel and cut them all but no more than 15 mins 😉

I hope you try these vegetables, if you haven’t already, and let me know what you think of this recipe!
