Sauteed Parsnips, Carrots & Watermelon Radish

Print

Sweet and a bit nutty, parsnips are easy on the stomach, high in calcium, and the perfect side to a heavy main meal. Watermelon radish stimulates digestion and adds a pop of color to this nourishing root vegetable saute. You can also substitute with other favorite roots such as turnips and celeriac.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Forget the romaine—this side dish is a tasty and filling switch-up to a traditional leaf salad. Parsnips have a sweet flavor, making them an ideal pairing with a more heavy, savory meal like grilled steak or salmon. And, with their bright red color, watermelon radishes provide phytochemicals that can help protect against harmful UV rays we need to be especially wary of during these summer months!

    @Nancy – Yes the photographer cut them into rounds, which saves some time if you’re in a pinch. Recipe will taste great either way.

    Looks like a good recipe, but I’ve never seen a matchstick shaped like a quarter! The photo shows vegetables sliced into rather thick rounds.
