6. Roasted rutabaga and leeks

Rutabagas are not the prettiest vegetable you'll stroll past in the produce section, but it's got some fabulous flavor once you’ve gotten past the thick skin and twisted roots. Taste is similar to a potato, but with more flavor.

In this recipe from Sarah Berkowitz, roasted leeks add a savory sweetness to the mix, yielding a unique side dish that pairs perfectly with almost any entree – fish, meat, chicken, or as part of a wholesome vegan feast. Perhaps that's why it landed at No. 6 on our list. Find her recipe here.
