Ask the Chef! Jazzing Up Root Vegetables

Today Michelle Asks:

what kind of tasty seasoning or spices can I put in a root vegetable soup (e.g., potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes) other than salt, pepper, garlic, or onion (powder or real)?

Read my answer over at WDC!

Rosemary! I add that to my soups and it adds a lot of taste! Cracked peppercorn in another one I use too. A little different tasting that black pepper.

I use basil a lot and I have experimented with nutmeg as well .I try to stay away from salt

Wow! Love the ideas! I will pass it on!
