Ingredients

1 cup
potato, Yukon Gold (peeled, diced into 1/2 inch cubes)
1 cup
parsnip (peeled, sliced into 1/2 inch slices)
1 cup
carrot (peeled, sliced into 1/2 inch slices)
1  
leek (cleaned and sliced into thin half moons )
1 cup
sweet potato (peeled, diced into 1/2 inch cubes)
1 cup
rutabaga (peeled, diced into 1/2 inch cubes)
1  
garlic (whole head (all cloves))
1 cup
apple cider
3 tablespoons
vegetable oil
2 tablespoons
butter, unsalted
4 cups
vegetable stock
1 tablespoon
ginger, fresh (grated)
   
salt (to taste)
   
ground black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut off the top third of the head of garlic. Sprinkle a little oil on top of the exposed cut and loosely wrap the garlic in foil. Place garlic in oven to roast for 50-60 minutes, until soft.

Meanwhile, toss the root veggies with 3 tablespoons of oil in a large bowl. Spread the vegetables evenly onto a cookie sheet and place in oven. Roast for 35 minutes.

In a large, heavy pot, melt the butter. Add the leeks and ginger and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the roasted root vegetables and apple cider. Continue to cook for 10-15 minutes, until cider has reduced by half. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook for another 15-20 minutes. Remove garlic from oven and squeeze the garlic from the bulbs into a small bowl. Mash them well with a fork before adding it to the stew. Season stew with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
