A New Way to Enjoy Root Vegetables' Richness

This unique recipe from Steven R. Gundry's The Plant Paradox Cookbook may be unusual, but its cheesy layers and deep flavor baked in one delicious dish keep it within the realm of the comfort-food classic. It eschews the usual tomato sauce for a rosemary- and garlic-flavored puree made with sautéed onion, parsnips, celery root and rutabaga or turnips. This root veggie sauce becomes the base of the lasagna; next come thinly sliced sweet potatoes (you only use one potato for the entire, 8-serving casserole), and a lemon-ricotta mixture. Continue layering and bake until bubbling.
